Mary Hodson introduced Steven (Steve) Willette of Living Yoga Center in Urbana. Steve and his wife Sharon operate the center.
Steve has been practicing yoga for sixteen years and is in his tenth year of teaching. His training began in 2001 with William Lawton Wilson, a direct student of Sri K. Pattabhi (Ashtanga).
Perhaps of greatest influence is Aadil Palkhivala (Purna Yoga). Purna means “whole” and as such, Purna Yoga is not only for the body, mind, and spirit, but also for the expanse of the Heart Center. Purna Yoga is an evolving yoga – learning from the past, acting in the present, and moving into the future.
No style of yoga practice is appropriate for every body; however, the practice of yoga is appropriate for everyone. Every practice begins by assessing the availabilities and needs of each student, striving to create a group practice which is accessible, inspiring, and an adventure of self-discovery.
The highlight of the program had Steve taking a very well attended CU Sunrise Rotary through an actual 30-minute yoga class. We were very flexible in accommodating Steve.
Living Yoga Center is offering a special introductory rate for CU Sunrise members. Be sure to check with Neal Chamberlain to see when he will attend upcoming classes – rumor has it that Neal is quite the Yogi.
