GROW with Robin

Yoga, Mentoring, Writings

Welcome. Thank you for being here! I’m Robin.

GROW is an organic expression of my life. From a young age, I have partnered in the spirituality dance. As a “no television/kicked out of the house every afternoon” kid, nature became my first teacher. A day didn’t pass when the trees, lakes, and animals weren’t visited. I observed and absorbed her harmony, right relationship, and divine intelligence – what I now know to be Yoga. Being raised in a home that valued meditation, prayer, sisterhood, and service, provided a solid foundation for wellbeing. It is no coincidence, then, that I eventually found my way to an actual yoga mat 19 years ago. My first savasana was so riveting that I knew I had found an outlet for my life’s passion.

As Life often does, it hit me hard when I was seventeen years old. Not yet appreciating the gift of contrast, I blindly believed my darker thoughts, made some scary choices, and tried to smooth it all over with addictions and lies.

My ascent toward embodying that wise, child-like trust and curiosity began with the rigors of yoga and life coaching. Both trainings demanded self-observation, study, honesty, and the promise to commit to healthy technologies for personal growth. But, it was not all unicorns, love, and light!

For a long time, I felt like a hypocrite, parroting other teachers and coaches. I was speaking about moral concepts that I didn’t live, while using substances to numb my feelings as I advocated the importance of meeting them.

When I finally took my teachings on, it was humbling, daunting, and I grew up! I came face-to-face with my conditioning. I put a stake in the ground for my higher expression. My life became intentional and I made the tough choices that ultimately made me a more understanding and transparent person, partner, parent, and friend.

I consider myself less of a teacher and coach, rather someone who has been taught something that must be shared. I live and breathe my teachings. I make mistakes. I apologize quickly. But, the rate of return is much faster, allowing me to immerse myself once again into this mysterious dance that I call my life.

I would love to walk with you.

If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door. ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés
