"I teach yoga to share with others the wonderful feeling of peace, well-being, and wholeness that I have found in yoga. I enjoy offering my guidance and acceptance in the personal journey of each of my yoga students & clients, helping them to find greater health – physically, emotionally, and spiritually bringing them greater peace of mind." ~Robin

Certified as a Master of Yoga Education by Dr. Rao (Babaji), ERYT, Nationally Registered Yoga Instructor, Certified in Color Me Yoga I, Chakra Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and Thai Yoga Bodywork. Robin also completed the full 40-hour course of Intensive Study in the foundations and teaching techniques of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga with David Swenson.

Robin began practicing Yoga in 1968, in her hometown of Springfield, Vermont. Former manager of Yoga for Life in West Concord, Robin graduated with highest honors from the Hatha and Raja Yoga certification program of The Inner Place of Yoga, Naturally, in 1999. Her certification included the study and practice of many traditions of yoga, including Hatha, Raja, Kripalu, Iyengar and Traditional Indian classes. Robin is also a certified Reiki III Master and Level I Thai Yoga Bodyworker.

My first instructor (in 1968) was Jean Willard and I used to go home after class and teach the poses to my Mom & Dad, nieces, nephew, and friends. I did classes with her for 2 or more years, then I just did yoga informally on my own until 1995. At that point, Rochelle Chambless ( who was a Kripalu Instructor) became my main instructor. I credit her and her encouragement for my full-blown return to yoga and becoming a Yoga Instructor. After becoming certified in 1999, through Annie Lindahl of Yoga Naturally, I began managing Yoga for Life in West Concord. There I had to take classes with each of the instructors and sub for them as needed.

In 2001, I developed my 200-hour YTT Program, which met the Yoga Alliance Standards. I attended sessions with the various other instructors to further my experience and understanding of yoga, and attended other classes as well, including classes with Dr. Rao (Babaji). In 2004, I was certified in Color Me Yoga (Children's Yoga) with Marsha Metzger. In 2005, I was certified in Prenatal Yoga and completed the full Ashtanga Primary Series Yoga Teacher Training with Elena Case of Focal Point Yoga and in 2007, I was certified in Seniors Yoga with Maureen Spencer of Finding Inner Peace Yoga School. In 2008, I was chosen as a participant in a class with Rodney Yee which was taped for PBS. In 2009, I completed the full 40-hour course of Intensive Study in the foundations and teaching techniques of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga with David Swenson. And in 2011, I completed the 100-hour NEXT LEVEL TRAINING COURSE of Intensive Study in the teaching techniques of ASHTANGA INCLUDING THE SECOND SERIES, PRANAYAMA AND PHILOSOPHY with David Swenson.

Editorial about Jean Willard, my very first Yoga Instructor

When asked, What would you like to be remembered for?

She replied, "For having worked with children and youth and that I cared about people and my community. [a thoughtful pause ] And no matter how old you are, or how young, there is a meaning to your life and a purpose for it. Remember that each of us has a gift - maybe more than one - we have a place on this earth and a mission to complete."
