Robin teaches alignment-based vinyasa flow yoga, and is known for her clarity in verbal instruction, smart, creative sequencing, and attention to the cadence and rhythm of the breath. Her classes are steeped in choreography and often feature a “ladder flow” structure so that students learn a sequence of poses and then repeat variations on that flow to practice it and find further refinement and openness as the class progresses. Students will enjoy Robin’s detailed alignment cues that encourage a balance of flexibility and stability in the body. Strength building and core work are used to help students continually progress in their practice.

Robin uses the asana practice as a training ground for exploring mental and emotional patterns and behaviors within the self and with others off the mat. She incorporates the rich traditions of yoga philosophy through story, mantra, and breath work into her classes.
Robin has studied many traditions, and is first and foremost a dedicated yoga practitioner and student herself. Among the styles she has studied and practiced are Anusara, Iyengar, Vinyasa, Yin, Kula Flow, Moksha, and Ashtanga. Her teachers include Christina Sell, Schuyler Grant, Giocanda Parker, Samantha Shakti Brown, Kenny Graham, Darren Rhoades, Cate Stillman, Neesha Zollinger, Meaghan Currie, and many others. An enthusiastic teacher since 2011, she received her 500-hour RYT certification via the Alchemy of Form and Flow program with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker in 2017.

Robin relocated in 2015 from St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, where she taught at Nova Yoga studio, and she now lives in the Santa Cruz, California area with her husband and two children. Her goal is to help every student feel happy, healthy, and inspired!
