About your instructor: Robyn’s Story
As a physician, I spent 15 years in Diagnostic Radiology with a focus on Women’s Imaging. Throughout that process, I saw the amazing technological advancements of Western Medicine, enabling us to more readily detect and treat cancer. Although I was so very grateful for all of this technology, I realized that there was a large portion of patient care that was missing: How do we help patients heal?
State of the art cancer treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation are wonderful for treating the cancer, but they can result in physical limitations, emotional distress, and dampened spirit. For years, other than giving patients a hug and a smile, I was completely lost as to how to help them heal. I knew that my job as a doctor was not nearly complete.
What I did know was the one thing that continually helped me heal was my yoga practice. My scientifically trained mind needed to unwrap the mystifying impact of yoga at a deeper, fact-based level. I began my studies in yoga teacher training and continued my studies in yoga therapy.
I learned medical research has proven that yoga diminishes the side effects of cancer therapies and improves outcomes of many other medical conditions. My specialized training focuses on recovering from cancer treatments and overcoming anxiety and trauma. With a more complete well-rounded education, I have integrated both the teachings of traditional Western Medicine and the Eastern science of yoga.
My therapeutic yoga practice, Yoga Heals 4 Life, aims to achieve optimal health by treating the whole individual: body, mind and spirit.
