Robbyn's beautiful yoga journey started way back in1998, when her daughter was just two years old. As a single mom, she quickly realized that yoga brought glimpses of peace and calm, something that was missing from her life at the time. She continued to practice, off and on, for the next twenty years, sometimes daily and sometimes weekly. And then, three years ago, a friend suggested that Robbyn needed a new challenge in her life. That same afternoon, her mom forwarded her an email from Colleen Saidman, describing the latest teacher training she and her husband, Rodney Yee, were offering. The universe certainly gave Robbyn the signs and she started studying to become a yoga instructor.
Her first certification came from studying with the internationally known and acclaimed Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee at their Tribeca studio, Yoga Shanti. "It is here that I fell even deeper in love with yoga and all its limbs". Robbyn graduated with a 200 hour certification and began teaching right away. As the pandemic forced everyone into quarantine, she took up a new challenge: studying with Yoga Ed and became certified in youth, children's and trauma-informed teens' yoga. Most recently, she immersed herself in more retreats, earning advanced skills in leading Restorative, as well as Gentle and Chair yoga.
Currently holding 335 hours of trainings, Robbyn's favorite personal practice is Vinyasa. She has a love of Iyengar's teaching and always focuses on alignment, safe sequencing, and has added trauma-informed language during her personal practice and in her teachings.
