Robyn Lewis

Yoga Instructor

As someone who had always been physically active, I reached a point about 15 years ago where that all changed. For two years, I just didn’t have the energy to work out that I once had. Blood work indicated low thyroid levels, and once on medication to stabilize it, my energy level increased. But in those two years of inactivity, my flexibility had greatly decreased. I had always wanted to try yoga, but there weren’t many options in the area back then. I bought a yoga DVD and decided to try it at home. However, watching the rubber band-like instructor made me realize that I needed more personal instruction. I found out about a yoga class offered through Putnam County Parks and signed up. It was amazing! The instructor, Diana Whitwer, was great, and I soon became hooked. I worked with Diana for about a year and in 2006 I obtained my certification through YogaFit. I have taught Vinyasa Flow yoga classes at the South Charleston Library, 360 Fitness and now at Power Up Gym. My classes emphasize the physical fitness aspects of yoga and the connection of breath with movement. I love having new people join the class so that they can experience the benefits of yoga. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been practicing for 5 years or it’s your very first time, yoga is for everyone. All ages, all sizes, all fitness levels. I hope to see you in class! Namaste!
