Timmerman was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2005, but had been suffering intense pain, stiffness and fatigue of Fibromyalgia since 1998. In 2007, she decided to try yoga. Through yoga, she found the relief that no medications could give. No longer does she take prescription medications for the Fibromyalgia; just daily yoga. Not hard to understand why she developed such a passion for yoga. Timmerman became a RYT-200 certified yoga instructor in 2010, received RYT-500 certification in December 2013 and achieved ERYT-500 in 2015. It means so much for her to be able to share her love of yoga with others.

She has taught over 2500 hours of yoga. Her primary focus is on anatomy in the yoga poses. Proper alignment is important to realize the most benefit while staying safe in each pose. Not every body can achieve every pose, but she offer modifications and use yoga props to help each student achieve what is possible for their body.

Breath work is always important focus in any yoga class. She always takes time at beginning and end of practice to guide breathing, as well as constant cues and reminders while moving in and out of poses.

Timmerman’s weekly yoga class schedule offers numerous group and private classes in Randolph County and Darke County. For Information: email: [email protected]; phone: 937-423-0976; website: www.yogawithpurpose.com (Current/updated yoga class schedule always posted at this website)

And more good news:

Renovation is the ‘word’ for Union City. This week contractors, Larry Amspaugh (Hometown Handyman) and Jim Smith are quickly building the new amphitheatre in the Artisan Park, located on the corner of Howard and Pearl Street in Union City, Indiana. This is exciting as it will result in a permanent structure for entertainment for the Arts Festival this fall, Sept. 11-12 and for other events the coming years. The Art Depot is located directly across the street from the Artisan Park on Howard Street and provides a perfect venue for the arts movement happening in Union City, Indiana!

The facelift for what many refer to as The Apothecary Shoppe is happening quickly, removing the dated facade and returning it to a more historical face is a project done by the new owner Gary Elliott of Whitestone Computers. Originally built as The “Kerr Block” it contained three stores. Elliott’s plans include four storefronts, approximately 18x22x50-foot eight apartments upstairs. Plans in the concept include the old tin ceiling and chandeliers. At the back of the four storefronts will be a common area breakroom/kitchenette and bathroom. This renovation will take approximately a year for completion. The next step after the facade according to Elliott is a new roof, then the upstairs apartments followed by the store space downstairs to complete the renovation.

Elliott is another Union City native and a graduate of Union City Community High School and Ivy Tech and owns Whitestone Computers. He is the father of three. Elliott’s grandfather, Delbert Elliott, is well known in the Union City area. He helps Gary in the store (Whitestone Computers) everyday. Delbert will turn 101 this November! He is an amazing man.

Reminder that the Union City Arts Festival is upcoming Sept. 11-12.
