Two years ago Just B Yoga decided to create an intentional yoga class accessible and inviting for the LGBTQ community. We were compelled particularly for our transgender friends, but also wanted to create a welcoming community for those who identified as queer, questioning, lesbian, gay, bisexual or allied.
We have learned a ton and are grateful for those who have embraced this yoga class as a safe environment to heal and connect and make whole in heart and body and mind.
We’ve laughed and tumbled and stumbled. I’ve made mistakes and am grateful for everyone’s forgiveness.
Most of all we’ve created an environment for growth as a community. We are yogis. We are loved ones. We are friends. We are family. We are parents, brothers, sisters, wives and husbands.
Today, we celebrate all of that and the recognition of all of that. We celebrate what connects us and binds us to one another.
Join us Saturday, June 27 for our regularly scheduled LGBTQ Yoga Flow, 3:30 p.m. for a special tribute to the landmark Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage. We will have a special partner flow. Bring your partner, or don’t a nd be paired with a friend/ally/brother/sister. Let’s celebrate union and connection as community in movement and mindfulness.
There will be cake afterward!

A special thank you to Jennifer Schwartz, the person who suggested and nudged Just B Yoga to create (to our knowledge) the first LGBTQ yoga class in Michigan. I treasure the conversations we had as we explored the whys and wherefores before jumping into the deep end of the pool.
Also, mad respect for all of our regular students in this class – Erich, Bailey, Erica, Roxie, Johnny, Justin Lippi (yep even though you moved to Cali), Michael (you too!), Amanda, Heidi & Jennifer, Ryan & Jennifer, Dee & Sarah, Janet M., Yvonne L. You all are the heartbeat that keeps us going.
Class space is limited 24 people (12 couples). SIGN UP NOW if you think you want to join us.
We bow to you all.
The light and love in me, celebrates that same beautiful, shining light and love in you!
