Interview with Robin
YDM: How did you find yoga and Yoga Del Mar?
Robin: I began in Iyengar yoga in St. Louis 11 years ago, with a teacher who had recently moved to the city and was hoping to begin a practice. When I arrived in Del Mar, eight years ago, I was looking for a small studio with various styles of teaching.
YDM: How has practicing yoga changed your life?
Robin: I was struggling with scoliosis, and posture after doing pilates and step for many years. Reaching my 50′s I realized that yoga would better suit my spinal problems. As Geri and her staff continually say yoga has opened my heart to finding peace within my life. I have experienced greater energy and strength, and have been able to open my heart to everyone in my daily life.
(YDM: It’s so true! You brighten the room when you walk in and everyone feels your loving presence.)
YDM: What is the one thing about yoga or that you have gained through yoga that you are most grateful for?
Robin: As I have practiced at various studios I am most thankful for the many teachers I have encountered who have encouraged me to expand my individual practice, as well as the wonderful students I have met through the years.
YDM: What would you say to someone thinking of trying yoga for the first time?
Robin: Hopefully, yoga will lift your spirits as it has mine through daily practice. I am happier and more fulfilled for finding the practice.
