My inclusive approach to yoga and life enables me to relate with and to hold space for students wherever they are in their practice and their lives. At the same time, my belief in the power of the practice and the potential of each practitioner challenges students to see where they are ready to evolve so that they too can access this transformational tradition as a tool to invoke radical consciousness, wild sovereignty, unwavering self-expression and untamable love. My passions for art, music, and travel lace my teachings with the freedom to create one’s own experience on the mat to embolden students to pioneer their own paths in life. As a Bay Area native, I ultimately promote yoga as a medium to build a thriving community that respects the truths of all.


I had a wonderful time at the Grace and Gratitude trip, and I hope to attend next year as well. I loved the classes. I was pleasantly surprised that I left the retreat with sore muscles. It felt great! I also liked that the yoga classes were long and extended, rather than just taking up a few hours or so each day. It truly felt like a yoga immersion, which is exactly what I wanted. The food that was served was delicious- just one of many things I enjoyed about the Ratna Ling Retreat Center. It was very luxurious and peaceful. I did not mind the rain at all, because it was nice to be cozy inside. I was so glad that we got chant during the retreat- I wasn't sure we would, and my expectations were definitely fulfilled. I love chanting, and it was beautiful to hear all our voices together. Finally, the pranic breathing workshop was an incredibly interesting experience that I will remember for a long time. It definitely was unique, and I'm so glad that I participated. Thank you, Robin, for an amazing retreat! Can't wait for next year

This was marvelous retreat. Perhaps the best of the 5 yoga retreats I have attended. Robin sets a very welcoming tone, paces the moving yoga beautifully and enables a highly spiritual, contemplative atmosphere. The members of the group were uniformly lovely.

This was my first Yoga retreat, and it won’t be my last! The accommodations and food exceeded my expectation, and Robin is an incredible teacher. Thank you!

This was such an amazing experience. The retreat is in a secluded area surrounded by nature and wild life. It's so peaceful and serene. Robin is an amazing yoga instructor and everything she planned went super smoothly. I love going on retreats with Robin because it's not just about the yoga it's a full experience from her amazing energy to her beautiful voice, singing, chanting, relaxing, eating well. I feel so nourished from head to toe and from inside and outside. Words won't do her justice. Next year I hope to take my Mother with me on this retreat. Thank you Robin for all that you do for us. I feel like a brand new person after this retreat.

Robin curates a perfect zen, experiential retreat. She's a gifted teacher, beautiful chanter and musician. She both encourages open/reflective time yet manages to bring the group together with warmth. If you are looking for a transformative weekend, I highly recommend this retreat.

Robin has been my favorite yoga teacher since meeting her. I joined her yoga immersion program and I am so glad and grateful that I did. I was able to deepen my practice of yoga, on and off the mat. I love Robin's teachings, as she teaches yoga way beyond the postures and practice on the mat or during a session. To be able to carry those teachings into the every day life is a blessing and a way to live that I will never forget. Highly recommended!
