TESTIMONIALS from the recent Refresher Course:

“I learned so much about refining my alignment cues and knowledge, developing my voice as a teacher and many little ‘tricks’ to help myself and students stay safe in and deepen the experience of a posture.  The hands-on assist practices were thorough and concise.  Many things I learned in my first training were built upon and made more clear.  Thanks so much!”

“Demo and assisting instruction were very helpful and informative.  Lots of information covered without overloading the days or the students.  Taking instruction from and teaching to the fellow participants was of great benefit. Thank you!”

“Overall the class was great!  Thank you!  I appreciate all of the opportunity you gave us to ask about what we would like to review and then following through on that.  Thanks for all of the great feedback and sharing your expertise.”

“It is a joy to study with Robyn and I appreciate her open hearted instruction and years of teaching experience.  The balance of personal teaching practice and your own modeling and feedback were really helpful.”

“Your presence, energy, knowledge and feedback is incredible and delivered in an easy to understand and passionate manner.  I liked the freedom we had to modify class and work on things the whole group was wanting.”
