Hi everyone! Welcome to Yoga with Robin -- Namaste <3
I'm a passionate seeker of truth, beauty, and adventure. Years of spiritual study, backpacking travel, and the unexpected but conventional path of college + career eventually led me to pursue a life of yoga and teaching. I believe the possibility of lasting peace is attainable for all of us -- a clean life without limiting beliefs, destructive habits, and even western Medicine -- it's waiting to be discovered.
I'm here to help you on your journey :)
I currently lead alignment-based Ashtanga vinyasa, gentle, and yin-style studio classes and private lessons in mid-Michigan (Midland and Coleman specifically). I've also been blessed to teach yoga in Traverse City, and way over in Nepal.
I'm grateful to have the opportunity to share the ancient healing and transformative arts of Yoga and Ayurveda with YOU in hope that one by one, we may all find holistic health, sustainable happiness, and lasting peace.
-- professional bio below --
Robin Stremlow is a Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor (200-RYT) and certified Ascension Yoga teacher who believes yoga provides not only the movement our bodies naturally want and need, but also the clarity our souls are seeking. Her eclectic classes aim to both exercise the body and deepen each student's mind-body-spirit connection so that they may find lasting health, peace, and personal freedom through yoga.
Her yoga journey began in 2008 when Robin looked for a physical exercise that may help reduce the stress of University life and restore balance. After years of studying at studios throughout Michigan and across North America, Robin traveled to Rishikesh, India in early 2014 to complete a 200-hour teacher training program with Rishikul Yogshala. She received formal instruction in Ashtanga, Hatha, Kundalini and Yoga Nidra, and studied yoga philosophy, therapy, pranayama, meditation, and shat kriya techniques. Certified to teach Ascension Aerial Yoga, Robin studied uner Kelly Stiglich and Rain O'Dwyer. She has also studied under Ashtangis Kino MacGregor and Matthew Darling, and trained with Yin Yoga teacher Joe Barnett.
In her non-yoga professional life (yeah?! lol), Robin is a content specialist and writer for Spirituality & Health magazine, and a communications freelancer. In her personal life, she's an avid world explorer and backpacking traveler, gardener, dog-walker, painter, and wannabe vegetarian chef.
