About Robin

Robin Thorpe started her yoga practice in 2000 and is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.  While living in New York, she had the good fortune to be introduced to the Iyengar Yoga method under the guidance of Kevin Gardiner and Bobbie Clennell.  Ever since she has been grateful to have found the Iyengar school with their cultivated and knowledgeable teachers. She feels blessed to have studied with Elise Browning Miller and is a Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer. In 2011, she returned to her native Colorado and is looking forward to serving the larger regional Iyengar community as the Inter Mountain Iyengar Yoga Association (IMIYA) Vice President.
