Desperately seeking methodologies to heal from a broken spine, Robert discovered yoga in 2002. After his recovery, he found that yoga enhanced every part of his life. Overcoming significant limitations and asymmetries, he teaches with acute awareness and compassion for all body types and backgrounds. Robert has studied with some of the leading practitioners in the field, and is a graduate of the Piedmont Yoga School’s “Deep Yoga 10” program. His fascination with the biological organization that is the human body, and its anatomical and spiritual connections to the external world, heavily influences his teaching. “I’d love to show you how a good yoga class can engender feelings of freedom, focus and tranquil integration,” he promises. Robert spends his free time skiing in Tahoe and rock climbing in Yosemite and the High Sierra. He holds degrees in molecular genetics and philosophy from UC Berkeley.
