Yoga

Yoga is an ancient 8-branched system of self awareness and elevation that hails from India. As it is practiced in the United States today, it is primarily a physical exercise.

Just B Yoga strives to represent and teach all eight (8) branches of the tree of yoga: How we treat others, how we treat ourselves, how we treat and live in our bodies, our breath, our senses, our concentration, meditation and our bliss. 

We offer classes that range from using chairs, the wall, moving slowly or quickly in order to make the practice open to as many people and bodies as possible.

Studio Classes

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the studio location has been closed for in-person classes, workshops and private instruction. In the meantime, you may book a virtual private session or view our video classes

The studio, located in the south Lansing neighborhood of REO Town, is a cozy, humble facility with a bike rack out back and huge community box garden.

Trauma-Informed Yoga

Note: All Trauma-Informed classes are conducted virtually or in an off-site outdoor location with more than six (6) feet of distance between clients and teacher for the foreseeable future.

Trauma-informed yoga can be a useful additional tool in the trauma survivor’s toolkit.  Yoga is a practice that creates connection. Yoga’s focus on cultivating awareness of breath, body and mind and our reaction to them can help with self regulation and healing from trauma and PTSD.

Belinda Thurston is trained and experience in trauma-informed work with children and teens, mental health professionals and corrections professionals. She specializes in:

  • Sexual trauma (including gender based/LGBTQ-based trauma)
  • Generational/Ancestral trauma (race, oppression)
  • Domestic violence
