#Lovelansing 2.0? Where do we go from here?

What is #LoveLansing? “It’s an attitude, a feeling, a connector… a MOVEMENT!”   But where does it go from here?   Is it time for #Lovelansing2.0? I had the honor of speaking about the #Lovelansing hashtag on WKAR radio Current State program with Robin Miner-Swartz this morning. CLICK TO LISTEN We shared how it has

Innovation in unexpected places

I don’t know how much more unexpected we could get than having a yoga studio on a panel at the Microsoft Social Computing Symposium. Bucket list – check! Last month I had the pleasure to be in the presence of some amazing technological minds as a participant in the SCS2013 event in New York. The

Just B Yoga meets the Kings of Flint

Some stories just need to be told from the beginning. I dropped by the South Lansing Community Development Association office two Thursdays ago (Aug. 2). I needed to drop off some schedules for Jenelle who was kind enough to want to help promote Just B Yoga at their farmers market. We got to talking about

Lansing youth yoga art project

Before I get into the amazing presentations of the Yoga Service Conference, I want to share a different kind of yoga service project. This is a project Reach Studio Art youths did in service of yoga and community through art at Just B Yoga. We are about building community and serving community. The art these

Lyric’Lee performs at Just B Yoga

If you’ve never heard the vocals or the instrumentals from this gifted sister, you must! Her name is Lyric’Lee. She’s in Lansing. And her sound is tight.   Here’s two tracks from her performance at Just B Yoga on Black Friday.   Lyric’Lee performs “Little Girl” at Just B Yoga’s “How to Be Black” event

Drive like a yogi

I don’t always drive like a yogi. If you saw me pull out when the light turns green you’d think I was an aspiring dragster (4-cylinder Toyota or not) until you saw the Just B Yoga magnet on the back of the car. I don’t like people riding my bumper. I can’t stand drivers who

What’s your yoga statement?

Thanks to Jackie Starbrite, an amazing student and friend for sharing this. How do you live your yoga? What’s your  yoga statement?

Goodbye Just B Yoga bike rack, so sorry to my cyclists

Dear Just B Yoga cyclists, Your parking is gone. It just up and disappeared. All 900 pounds of metal that was bolted into the sidewalk.               NOTICE SOMETHING GONE?               LOOKS SO EMPTY OUTSIDE               ALL THAT’S

Just B Yoga Podcast Oct 21 – announcements and then Oct. 14 power class flow

Here’s the latest podcast. I’m a little tardy in getting up last week’s flow. Many thanks to Audra Post for her amazing contribution to the playlist. Many of you don’t know in another lifetime I was an oboist. I was the principal oboist for the D.C. Youth Orchestra and for two years I majored in

In need of some Lansing or Michigan hip hop artists

Hip hop is about freedom and fusion. It’s about originality and style. It’s empowering and full of flavor. It’s raw and imperfect. Sounds like yoga, right? Just B Yoga is about helping Lansing grow beyond the image others project on us and embrace the image that shines from within. Our Hip Hop Power Hour is

Peel away the layers at an inner city yoga studio

Lately some of the calls to Just B Yoga have had a similar theme: “I don’t think I’ll be comfortable there.” “Will I be safe?” It’s been a difficult one to respond to without having a defensive edge in my voice. It’s also been a sad reality to face about how we’re perceived.

When the student becomes the teacher

Anika Fassia found Just B Yoga when it was very new in 2010. The weekly free yoga class on Wednesdays was in the gym of an elementary school. No frills. Anika quickly became a regular on the gym floor with her neighbors working in to their yoga. Her practice was new. Her smile and laughter
