Rob first met yoga and mediation as a way to focus as a wrestler and football player. Many years later as part of his weight loss journey, he came back to yoga in a more formal manner. He instantly took to how yoga calmed his mind and allowed for a more peaceful presence of being. He quickly realized that his path might include teacher training to gain a greater understanding of the mind/body connection of yoga. Robert completed his RYT-200 training in classical yoga at the YogaLife Institute of NH in 2021. He regularly practices Yin and Vinyasa, or whatever else fits his schedule. He likes to teach a hybrid vinyasa/classical.
Rob hopes to encourage people who might be hesitant to come to the mat. He himself struggled initially with feeling out of place in a yoga studio, but found the yoga community to be amazingly accepting. This cemented to him that yoga is for anyone who arrives on the mat! Rob hopes to continue his training realizing he has only scratched the surface of yoga.
Off the mat, Rob works in the realm of regional planning and natural resources as a map maker, which allows him to analyze data and do other nerdy things. He enjoys hiking, woodworking and spending time with his partner, child and golden retriever ‘Ted’.
