Priti has the most amazing energy and presence

I've been taking classes/retreats/teacher training with Priti for over ten years. Her warm and loving style and support has been so amazing. She reminds me to be where I am and be present. She brings a wealth of knowledge to her classes and explains why we are doing different asanas to help us understand.

Tune in to you!

Priti has inspired me in so many ways! Years ago she taught me how to be a yoga teacher and I still think of her thoughtful and energetic hands on adjustments that she taught me then. Priti's classes and one on one sessions offer such a safe space that I feel allowed to truly express myself, explore my body, and relax! I would give her ten stars if I could :)

What is yoga to you?

Priti has the amazing ability to help you find your own path with yoga. She teaches you all the fundamentals: physical, spiritual, intellectual... And then she allows you to find what resonates for you. There is no perfect path to yoga, we are each allowed to have our experiences and figure out how we individually connect. Her teaching allows one to develop a relationship between our bodies, spirituality and intellectualism through yoga.


It offers the opportunity for deep healing as we reconnect ourselves through yoga. Through this journey, your practice becomes just that - your practice, feeding you in ways you couldn't imagine. Priti's enthusiasm and love for what she does shines through her. Her total acceptance of each of us as unique individuals is a wonderful gift that sets her apart from many yoga instructors.

Love kindness and joy

I met Robyn when she was leading the Prana Yoga teacher training almost 20 years ago. She brings unconditional love , honesty and knowledge to her teaching that she creates a space for any student to grow and learn and expand their consciousness through yoga.

Exemplary teacher on many levels

It's my great privilege to write a recommendation on behalf of Priti. She is an, inspiration, teacher, friend and colleague of mine. Priti is one of the rare teachers who excels in so many areas. She has a strong grasp of the history and philosophy of yoga, and integrates this with her understanding of the body and alignment that few can match. She provides safe and supportive classes that are also creative, fun and playful.


Her dynamic spirit and presence is only matched by her big heart and joyous personality. She is just as interested in how one lives their yoga off the mat as she is by how well they do in a pose in a class. I deeply respect that Priti doesn't just play the role of teacher, but lives and breathes it when nobody else is around. I feel honored to write on her behalf, and hope many others will get the chance to experience her teaching.

Real Life Yoga

I've been very fortunate to have Priti as my teacher. In the time I have known her, I am continually impressed with her ability to guide students through a present, authentic, and multidimensional class. Steeped in yogic life, her teaching spans the realms of anatomy, philosophy, consciousness, and 'real' life. Lessons and exploration on the mat invite me to consider how I can bring yoga into my every day life not only in postures, but in all of my interactions. Priti blends her expertise, wisdom, compassion, and humor into an experience of yoga that is truly accessible to all.

A loving and wise expert

Robyn is a consummate teacher--expert in the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga, emotionally available to her students, full of love, and so much fun. I have taken her classes, gone on retreat with her, worked with her privately and joined her sanhga. She has helped me find the right path at critical junctures in my life and given me so many tools for better living, tools I use every day. Working with Robyn is one of the privileges of my life. If you have the chance, jump at it.

So wonderful

I've been studying with Priti for over 20 years and I can say there is no one like her. Each class with her brings you to a new level and expands you beyond what you thought possible. She is totally attuned to her students and offers support and encouragement that allows you to unlock your potential. She also brings lightness and humor and fun into everything she does! I --and other fellow yogis -- are so lucky to have had the chance to learn from her
all these years!

Where spirit meets body

In the time that I have known Priti, she has a truly magnificent subtlety in the way she seamlessly blends anatomical queues with vivid imagery to create one of the safest and most experiential practices I have ever had. Priti's knowledge of anatomy serves her students as she weaves in optional movements to equally support and challenge students under her care. From the moment you meet Priti, it is apparent she is a genuinely kind and caring person. Her openness in class is a true reflection of how she is in the real world. Priti is truly one of the best I have ever encountered in my years of practice.

the best of the best

I first started studying yoga with Robyn 19 years ago. In these past 2 decades, my work with her has changed my life. What a generous, loving, wise soul! She is phenomenal with both beginners and advanced students alike, and brings a sense of pure joy to every class. I cannot recommend her enough.

Excellent Teacher

Priti is an extraordinarily gifted teacher. Her skill arises not just from a deep understanding of the physical aspects of yoga but also a deep intuitive sense of each student before her. Her teaching encompasses the physical, energetic, and spiritual aspects of yoga and she tailors her classes and workshops to meet the individual needs of her students. I have been very fortunate not only to observes her teaching gift but also to be a recipient as well.

Body and spirit

Having taken classes with Priti for many years as well as having taken retreats with her at Kripalu and abroad I can recommend her unequivocally. Priti leads her students through both a spiritual and physical practice. One leaves her class feeling renewed physically and emotionally.

Priti is a beautiful authentic and supportive teacher. She guides you through an experience to your inner self so flawlessly and before you know it, class is over. She has in depth knowledge of the physical body and through languaging and her amazing energy, takes you on a beautiful spiritual journey. I cannot recommend Priti enough!!

Most loving Yoga teacher

I known Priti for about 6 years now, she really changed my view of life. I met her in Guatemala for the first time, she was beautiful and friendly. After a week spending time with her, I basically felt in love with her gentle and loving heart. Ever since, I had been to Itlay, back to Guatemala, and Spain retreat with her. Every time I came back with such knowlege and clarity about life journey. We laughed, we cried as a group, she leaded us deeper into ourselves, it's really life transfoming with every single yoga retreat I had been with her.
You will feel her love even just a short yoga class, you can't help but to trust and adore her. I'm truly grateful that I met her in this life time, hope as well as next.

Priti is Love ;-)

I have had the enormous pleasure of being a student of Priti's at the Kripalu Centre in Massachusetts. Priti was one of my yoga teacher training instructors, and I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful woman to guide me on my path to yoga. I've said this before, and I'll say it again. Priti is pure love. She is kind, gentle, intuitive, caring, and has a wealth of experience to draw upon in the classroom. I attended Priti's "Refilling your Well" workshop at Kripalu as well, and found it wonderfully restorative and relaxing. I was able to let go of all the day-to-day worries and just breathe. Pure bliss. If you have an opportunity to study with Priti, I encourage you to grab it! You will thank me. Really. ;-)
