I would like to introduce you to Debra Steinhauer. She will be offering yoga classes at McAllister Center in 2013. She is a certified yoga teacher and practices yoga with me at McAllister Center.
Here’s a little bit about her:
Originally drawn to yoga as a way to quiet the mind, I’ve been studying and practicing yoga since 1997. In February 2012, I completed my yoga teacher training at All People Yoga Center in Indianapolis and am registered with Yoga Alliance. The style of yoga I teach blends the influences of the many wonderful teachers with whom I have studied.
She will be offering Beginner, All-Level, and Continuing yoga. Please refer the the schedule page for more information
Peace and joy,
We have never stayed home long enough to experience the truth about ourselves – Erich Schiffmann
Thank you to our wonderful and generous yoga community for their donations to the Red Cross Disaster Relief.
We had a full house at our yoga class. As always we want the benefits of our practice to ripple out beyond our mat into our community and out to the world.
Peace and Joy!
Come join me on Sat. 11/3/12 from 10:00 – 11:15am for an All-Level yoga class at Morton Community Center.
Everyone is welcome to attend these classes, regardless of experience, fitness, or income level. Fees are by donation. The suggested donation would be appreciated, but if you are on a tight budget, just pay what you can afford. Please call the Morton office at 775-5120 to reserve your spot, if you are interested, since space is limited. Since donations will be collected in class, we will not be able to accept credit cards. Please make donations in cash or check made out to City of West Lafayette.
Peace and Joy
We could take a lesson from these children.
“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.
When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are.)”
My mentor and friend, Lisa Nail, is celebrating 20 years teaching yoga. She has been an inspiration to me both on and off the mat.
I’m looking forward to many more years of mat time and friendship with this gifted teacher.
Check out one of her classes at Morton Community Center. Visit yogabalancewl.com for her schedule. She has the best voice in yoga. Her shavasana is truly “yoga dessert”.

“True stability results when presumed order and presumed disorder are balanced. A truly stable system expects the unexpected, is prepared to be disrupted, waits to be transformed.”
