Robin always found meditation in movement through yoga and dance. She became dedicated to her yoga practice upon discovering hot yoga in 2003. The energy, healing, metabolism boost, and stress release resulted in tangible health benefits. Robin found herself talking to everyone about yoga and introducing friends to the practice for several years.

Initially training was with Jacqui Bonwell’s Sacred Seeds Yoga School, Robin followed up with certifications through The Lotus Pond in Tampa, Florida and Pranakriya School of Yoga and Healing Arts. Her trainings include Yoga Nidra and Meditation, Prenatal Yoga and Functional Anatomy and Therapeutic Yoga. RoZoYo® is her astrology yoga practice based on the connection between our bodies and the Moon, Sun and planetary cycles. She's been leading RoZoYo® workshops and festival classes since 2013.

Robin is so grateful to her many teachers including Annie Okerlin of Yogani in Tampa, Jacqui Bonwell, and Marlysa Sullivan of Center for Integrative Yoga Studies.

Robin's philosophy is that yoga is endlessly creative and beneficial for every body, at every stage of life and state of mind.
