E.Y.T. provides high quality and skilled therapeutic application of yoga to individuals in need. The teachings of yoga encompass the physical, energetic, psycho-emotional and spiritual aspects of our being. Yoga cikitsa, or therapy offers clearly delineated tools designed to relieve suffering and facilitate healing disease or discomfort on any of these levels. The education and skills required to work in the realm of yoga therapy surpass those of the average yoga teacher, as they necessitate a more complete understanding of anatomy, physiology and psycho-spirituality from both the eastern and western traditions.

Robin Rothenberg draws deeply from the authentic lineages of yoga, while also incorporating contemporary understanding of body and mind, the results of years of study in western science and medicine. She acts as an educator or bridge between these two seemingly disparate worlds, facilitating clients in achieving a new awareness of their condition, helping them break free of habits that are debilitating, and develop a clear plan of action (often referred to as a personal practice) to help themselves find equilibrium and greater health.

Therapeutic Yoga with Robin has been a great help to me. Within the first two sessions she was able to give me recommendations about muscle cramps that has made a huge difference for me. I am also learning to adapt and relax instead of trying to fix my body. I would recommend this class to anyone with stiffness or tightness in their body. - Bob H.

Robin has been training yoga teachers since 1993, and her training is certified with the Yoga Alliance at the 500 hr. level. For the past several years, she has turned her attention to supporting yoga teachers in developing skills as yoga therapists. She offers various trainings and educational clinics (which qualify for YA Continuing Ed. Credits), addressing both specific and more global aspects of yoga therapy.
