Yoga for depression and anxiety

Depression and anxiety can leave us immobilized and feeling helpless. We struggle to gain control. We often fight to hide our situation from friends and loved ones. And we sink further and further.

Hug a tree to just be

I am a natural-born tree hugger. And go figure! Hugging trees is good! A friend recently posted this article on Facebook. When I saw it in my newsfeed I took in a gasp. After reading it I exhaled. I almost cried too. You see, as a very young child I used to hug a tree

Chakra workshop gets inner wheels spinning

I’ve felt stuck in the mud, drenched in tears and serene as though floating on calm peaceful waters. That’s all in the last month and a half. No, there haven’t really been any huge life-changing, emotionally charged events. I’ve been traveling through my chakras. I am co-leading a monthly series of workshops at Just B

Just B Yoga finds family at Yoga 4 Peace

Yesterday proved some of the best things happen when there isn’t a plan. Feeling a little cabin fever, I woke up with a yearning to explore a new yoga experience, new yoga studio space, new yoga people. I pined for connection (or just to get out of the house). I wound up in Southgate. I

What are you addicted to? This is something I’ve been asking myself lately. Cigarettes? I smoked for more than 12 years but I haven’t now, for 12 years. Work? That might be a likely candidate. Doing. Being busy. Hmmm. Alcohol? I can go a day, a week, a month without a drink. Never have tried
