Yoga at Renaissance

Yes even YOU can do Yoga

Robbin expanded her Yoga Studio to a new, larger space in January 2010. It is lovely with a warm and pleasant atmosphere. It features a huge 20 ft. mirror on the front wall to help with awareness of postural alignment. It is fully equipped with all new props with a plan to add a Yoga Wall in the future.

Renaissance offers group yoga classes, which are limited to 8 people, allowing for personal attention to each student. Robbin encourages a noncompetitive environment to enable each student to feel comfortable to work within their own ability level. Classes are suitable for most levels of ability.

Some seniors or those that may be recovering from an injury might benefit from private class until they are ready for a group class. You may choose to schedule a private or semi private class with Robbin or you and a group friends or family members can schedule a private class to accommodate busy schedules. You may want to schedule a private group class as an alternative “healthy” get together.

Classes are of a gentle, restorative nature that involves the use of props including bolsters, blankets, foam blocks, straps, foam rollers, chairs, balance balls and the wall. The props along with correlating body movement with breath allow one to achieve some level of most poses or asanas. When the body is supported by props one achieves a sense of feeling grounded and safe, thus allowing the body to release muscle tension and begin to change habitual patterns.

Working with the balance ball builds core strength and stability. The body can also release over the ball for the positional release effect. The balance ball aids in strengthening and toning muscles, and works as a stretching tool.

Yoga at Work

Robbin will come to your office or work space to teach Yoga of Daily Life in the Work Space. Employees benefit from learning correct sitting postures, seated asanas for relieving muscle tension of the neck, shoulders, arms and hands at the computer or work station, standing correctly, and relaxing breathing techniques to balance mind and body anywhere. These simple stretches can be done as a group or individually during the work day in very little time, easing stress levels and enhancing well being, resulting in happy, healthy employees.

Restorative Yoga for Athletic Performance

Restorative Yoga (RY) helps to enhance performance ability in athletes that participate in running, soccer, golf, football, baseball, gymnastics or other sports. RY gives athletes a tool that they can use to release their own areas of tightness or loss or range of motion. Supporting the body over props softens/shortens the muscles, facilitating release; RY brings focused awareness and power of visualization of the breath, expanding and opening troubled areas, bringing oxygen and other nutrients to muscle fibers, resulting in relaxation and release. RY coupled with sports massage also helps bring balance to daily life and athletic performance.
