Roberta’s yoga journey began in 2004 during a particularly difficult time in her life. Her first experience with yoga was at a BodyFlow class at the Y. It was from these humble beginnings that a seed was planted to continue exploring this powerful form of connection between her body, mind, and breath.
Fast forward 5 years to when Roberta was laid off as an art director for a local furniture company. Sporting a new marriage, new house, and no job, she began soul searching on what was next. A year later Roberta started her yoga teacher training at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis. Again, it didn’t take long for the seed to be planted, and she was off in a new direction in her life. Now, two years later, Roberta has become the new owner of Invisible Bee Yoga. With her background in marketing and design, she hopes to make Invisible Bee the go-to yoga studio for the surrounding neighborhoods.
During these nine years Roberta’s study of yoga became more in-depth. There were periods of intense practices followed by a time of slower, quieter practices due to a back injury. Listening to the needs of her body, mind and soul, she began to practice with intention and truly accepted where she was in her life. She developed a wide appreciation for many different types of yoga, from yoga therapy to tantric to the quiet practice of yin. Bringing these broad experiences to her teaching has helped her develop a keen awareness as to her student’s needs.
