Robin has such a gift for tracking the activity and energy level of her class and adapting the flow to be just the right poses. She always mixes relaxation and challenge well and yet has a few poses in the flow that seem to solve my specific tightness and flexibility issues. I leave every class feeling better than when I walked in and over the last year, my mobility, flexibility and balance have improved. Even though I was a complete yoga novice at the start, Robin has been patient and professional finding adaptations that enable me to do a form of the more challenging poses without feeling like I'm behind. The environment is fun, yet calming and focused.
Robin is a very knowledgeable and attentive instructor. I LOVE her positive energy and calming presence. She seems to intuitively know our strengths and weaknesses and tailors the practice to both challenge and support us. Since I started practicing yoga with Robin, I am noticeably stronger, more flexible and centered. This has helped me tremendously with my physical activity and everyday living! I hope to continue practicing yoga with Robin for years.
I am a 50-year-old single digit handicap golfer, who for the first-time last year did not break par – the reasons: flexibility and the general niggling aches that bring you off at 9 rather than 18.
With a mind to change the above I started Yoga at the end of last season. No easy sell here, the larger you are, the harder it is.
Now three months in, the first testable result – an increase of 6 mph swing speed over the best result achieved last winter (indoor golf simulator, so no temperature difference).
Yoga is in my weekly schedule and the game Will improve this year.
I really look forward to Robin’s class every week. It is a lot of fun, but more importantly, my flexibility increases dramatically from the first position held to the end of the class. I feel taller and energized at the end of class. I am feeling stronger and more flexible overall. Happily, I am noticing a significant improvement in getting into a boat for morning rowing. Sitting in the seat of a rowing shell requires great hip, knee and ankle flexibility to perform gracefully!
