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
