Robyn discovered yoga in high school, in New Zealand - and several poses wove their way into her life. More serious study started in 1987 when she moved to the US and knew she needed yoga to counterbalance life in Washington DC.
She completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Susi Amendola, at OYBC, in 1994. While raising three children she has taught yoga part time, and found her practice to be a wonderful way to carve out time for herself, stay connected to the earth through her body, and lift her spirit. It has also led Robyn to its sister science, Ayurveda, which she continues to study.
Her work with Susi Amendola, Rosie Holland (in NZ), Theresa Murphy, Tias Little, Angela Farmer, Mary Paffard and Gurmukh Khalsa have especially molded, directed, and inspired my practice. I share a love for the Iyengar roots of most of these teachers, with their attention to correct alignment, the use of props, inversions, and long holds. My teaching combines these fundamentals with a deep connection to the body's inner wisdom, the flow of breath, and the stillness of shavasana.
Robyn offers classes in Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, and Yoga for Menopause.
