People of Purpose

Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

Jul 1, 2018

Barbara Stegenga and Robin Sizemore fulfill their purposes training children into mindful superheroes. If you walked into their classroom you’d find elementary school kids leading each other in a meditation and helping each other stay calm in times of need. These are not your ordinary heroes. These are SUPERHEROES. Barb and Robin, rather Batman and Robin, have been helping kids cultivate these skills through their Superhero Training and Supply program at their elementary school in Hammond, Indiana.  What started out with helping one kindergarten student is now a program that impacts the whole school, staff and parents included. They are each passionate about the power of yoga, meditation, writing to contribute to the growth of themselves and their love for their families.
