Bobbi is a former teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. When she retired in June 2019
after 34 years of teaching, she decided to pursue a long-term goal of becoming certified to
teach yoga to children. Bobbi completed her 95 hour Challenge To Change, Inc. Toddler, Kids
and Teen Yoga Teacher Training in April, 2020. Realizing the benefit yoga had been for her over this
journey, Bobbi decided to continue on and pursue her 200 YTT through B1 Yoga and Challenge To
Change and completed her 200 YTT certification in November, 2020.
Bobbi enjoys being with her family. She lives in De Witt, Iowa with her husband, Steve, and is
blessed to have her 2 sons living within driving distance here in Eastern Iowa. When not doing
yoga, Bobbi enjoys singing with her praise band at her church, doing puzzles on the computer, and
reading. She wants to travel more now that she has a more flexible schedule and enjoys her coffee
in the mornings with no pressure to always have to run out the door to work!
Bobbi is excited for the opportunities that yoga is bringing into her life, including working for
Challenge to Change in her local schools. She teaches an adult yoga class once a week for a small
group at her church and she also teaches yoga classes at a local studio in De Witt. Yoga has gotten
her through a difficult year personally and she looks forward to being able to help others, especially
children, learn how yoga can help bring calm, peace, and love in one’s life.
