JEN_1696

We’ve invited the ladies from b inspired yoga studio to come and teach us about what yoga is and to demonstrate some of the techniques involved.  Make sure that you wear comfortable clothes!

b inspired. yoga studio’s intention is to serve Batesville, Indiana, surrounding communities, and visitors. As each one comes to his/her mat at b inspired., you are met with a joyful and peaceful place to practice.

Lisa Tuveson:
Lisa started practicing yoga 20 years as physical workout; however, after experiencing the amazing benefits of yoga, she now comes to her mat to create a peaceful and calm mind. Lisa received her 200 RYT training at Elemental OM in Cincinnati, completed her ChildLight Yoga Training in April 2014 and is working towards her 500 RYT. Although Lisa enjoys sharing her love of yoga with others, her first passion is that of being a mother to her six children.

Molly Freeland:
Molly was first introduced to yoga 5 years ago and after just a few classes fell in love with the practice. She found that in the midst of a busy life, there is a natural way to find peace and stillness. She enjoys taking long bike rides with her husband, listening to her 3 children laugh and the change of the seasons. She received her 200 RYT training from Urban Body in Ft. Wayne and continues pursuing trainings and workshops to expand and grow her personal practice as well as to share with others.
Lauren Schewe:
In 2008 Lauren completed a 300hr yoga certificate with World Peace Yoga in Cincinnati. While pregnant with her first child, she completed an advanced 500hr TT focusing on Prenatal yoga and Thai Yoga bodywork. Over the years she has attended retreats, workshops and many classes to deepen her connection with God, self and the Oneness of all living sentient creatures. Lauren loves spending time in nature with her children and family. Learning old ways and skills that have been forgotten and sharing her zest for health and vitality with all.

We hope you’ll join us on Friday!

August 29th: Open Discussion Day

Join us this Friday for one of our groups favorite days, Open Discussion group! We ask that you bring questions ahead of time written on a notecard. This enables your question to be discussed as you seek advice on an issue you’re struggling with, all the while remaining anonymous. Otherwise, you can just ask your question openly to the group. Melissa will not be able to be with us (she will be traveling out of state with her family), so Abby Coffey will be leading the group. This is a great time to really get to know the other moms in the group and their heart.

Kickoff is August 15th: Battling the Pressure to be Perfect

We want to extend a very warm welcome back to Dana James!  This will be her 3rd time speaking to our group here in Batesville.

James-9D3DC3-Img426323(BW)

Dana’s heart is to connect women with God’s heart through the teaching of His Word. Her passion is to see women know God and glorify Him through their lives. She has spoken at conferences, retreats and events as far away as Africa and as close as her own home town.

Dana gets excited about meaningful, honest conversation, Dr. Pepper, and spending time with her incredible family. She recently learned to drink coffee and loves a cup with peppermint mocha creamer in the morning while sitting at her Lord’s feet.

After being a stay-at-home mom, she taught at colleges in Texas and Tennessee. Currently she works at Pier 1 Imports where she loves to connect with women from all over the world!

She was not raised in a Christian home yet is a pastor’s wife, a pastor’s mother, and a pastor’s mother-in-law…a testament to the grace and mercy of God!  Dana and her husband, Ernie, live in Greenwood, IN where they serve Calvary Baptist Church.

Dana will be speaking to us about battling the pressure to be perfect.  I think we all as women/moms struggle with this very unnecessary pressure in the world today.  I hope that you’ll make time in your schedule to come sip on a cup of coffee while you listen to what Dana has to say.  You won’t leave the same girl!

 

May 2nd: Meal planning for busy families with Tricia Jennewein

JenneweinFamily007

It doesn’t matter if you make up half of a dual-income family, are a single mom, stay at home mom tripping over the little ones at your feet, soccer mom juggling schedules for multiple afterschool activities, or feeding teenage boys…it’s ALWAYS a challenge to get dinner on the table and share a meal together.

After 20 years of marriage, from professional career to SAHM, 4 kids, 5 transcontinental moves and living overseas, Tricia has endured all these stages and changes in her role as wife and mom. She will show you the tips and tools she has learned and use for making that hectic time of day a little easier and squeeze in some quality family time to boot.

Tricia will start by demonstrating freezer meal how-to’s, menu planning and grocery lists by department.   She will also tell you about a couple of websites that she personally uses to make all of this even easier. If that’s not enticing enough…she’s arranged for several amazing give-aways of her favorite things!

ANYONE can do this in their own kitchen regardless of family size, where you shop, what food rules you follow and how you choose to feed your family.

Make sure you don’t miss this very practical and helpful talk!
