What’s your excuse?

I don’t do resolutions.


Because by February I’ve fallen off the wagon and beating myself up about not sticking to the resolution. I’ve learned that goals tend to to work much better for me. Whether it’s a goal or resolution that you choose to embark on, don’t let excuses of why you can’t get in the way.

Here’s a list of excuses that I hear from people about why people “can’t” come to yoga.

  • “I’m not flexible” … That’s why you go to yoga! We aren’t trying out for the Cirque Du Soleil. We’re doing yoga in a Brewery.
  • “I’ve never done it before” … You can’t expect to be perfect at something you’ve never done before! Check your ego at the door and give it a try. Channel your inner 6 year old. Did I mention, there are zero expectations?

Moral of the story: If you’ve been thinking about coming to yoga, just give it a try!

Food Pantry for Flex Tech High School.

Flex Tech is a charter school in Brighton and the only Livingston County school that has a Title One designation (40% of the families/students are classified as low income).

Flex Tech does not offer a school breakfast or lunch program.

We met with a group of teachers and they asked if we could provide breakfast for their kids. Easy enough. However, we thought we could provide a snack option as well for the students who need it.

Channel 7 News: Yoga & Beer

Recently interviewed and filmed, our weekly Bend & Brew (yoga and beer) class was featured in a news piece by Matthew Smith of Metro Detroit’s Channel 7 News on ABC.



If you’ve ever been intimidated by the idea of trying a yoga class, there’s likely a class for you. At Brewery Becker, in downtown Brighton, you’ll find 20-30 people just about every Tuesday night — you read that right, yoga in a brewery. This class is meant for beginners to serious Yoga enthusiasts.

“Check your ego at the door, come with an open mind and channel your inner 6-year old,”said Ashley Knuth, the regular instructor who walks people through one-hour of poses at 6 p.m. every Tuesday.

“Come as you are, not as you think you should be.”

Bend & Brew is a regularly scheduled event with a portion of proceeds given to Athletic Scholarships via the Knuth Family Foundation.

Please join us at Brewery Becker for Beer & Yoga, open to the public.
