It was in the middle of a long hot summer that Robbie attended her first hot yoga class. It took a long time to get used to doing yoga in the heat but she found it to be a complete workout, a journey, and a life changer. Her health improved as she allowed the practice and her teachers to create a space for change, both physically and mentally.
Robbie attended a Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in 2013. Not wanting to stop the learning journey she went on to complete a 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training at Power Living and is working her way through the 500-hour pathway. In 2017 Robbie commenced a Cert IV in Matwork Pilates through Polestar Pilates Australia. She plans to continue in this direction with possibly a Diploma and courses on Reformer and Studio work.
If you had told Robbie 10 years ago that she would be a yoga teacher, own an incredible studio, and have this much lycra, she would have laughed until she cried.
Robbie instructs the following:

Hot Flow (Vinyasa)
Hot Flow yoga is a dynamic sequence of postures that guide you consciously into your breath and out of your mind to lead you to a more authentic, powerful and content life. The routines are a vigorous, yet empathetic form of exercise that transforms the body, challenges the mind and allows the heart to unleash the true spirit within us all. Hot Flow is inspired by the ancient yogic teachings of Hatha Yoga but is also given in a common sense approach to teaching its postures to Western civilisation. The classes are a way for modern day people to be free of the aches and pains in their bodies, start to calm their mind and become happier and healthier people in today’s stressful world.
The room is heated to 30 degrees and our team of trained teachers are committed to speaking to the hearts and minds of every student, taking them on a journey of self-discovery that builds muscular strength and endurance, improves functional flexibility and agility, while also improving cardiovascular activity and fat burning. Poses are held for 1 breath up to 1.5min each. The class moves dynamically for the first ¾ then, slows down for longer deep hip release towards the end.
This fun and addictive class is also blended with a modern day philosophy of how to live life authentically and consciously, both on, and off the mat - cultivating a healthy body, quiet mind, open hearth and vibrant spirit.
Hot Yoga (60 mins)
This 60 minute class includes all 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises included in the original 90 minute class. The class moves at a different pace, only some of the postures are performed twice. It stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. It is a complete, holistic workout doing more for your body than you ever imagined possible! The studio room is heated to 39C allowing the muscles to warm for deeper stretching, it thins the blood to clear the circulatory system, allows the body to eliminate toxins, increases heart rate for a better cardiovascular workout, and improves strength. It is a dynamic class that will encourage you to stay focused and connected to your breath.
