Meet Our Mind&Body Instructors


 

 Wilma Schindeler NEW  

Wilma Schindeler

What Wilma loves about teaching yoga is that everything we experience on the mat reaches into our daily lives. Yoga is a beautiful way to live, starting on the mat and moving beyond. My goad as an instructor is to assist each of my students to calm their minds and experience themselves in a new positive, fun and playful way.  Wilma’s hope is that they leave her classes challenged, satisfied and peaceful.  Wilma has been practicing yoga for 7 years. When she is not teaching yoga, she is in West Texas operating Casa La Vista Retreat Center, as well as bringing massage therapy and energy to her clients.

 Jonathan  

Jonathan Stein

Drawing from a wide variety of yoga styles and meditation techniques, Jonathan's Vinyasa yoga classes are an eclectic exploration of strength, expansiveness and restoration. As a coach, he firmly believes that yoga is for everyone, and challenges them from exactly where they are in their practice: beginner, advanced, recovering, distracted, or all of the above. The class applies breath, movement and postures to softly balance out overstimulated minds and bodies, creating calm and building prana.
