” When I am not in the studio or at my other full time job, you can find me doing a wide variety of activities outside. I enjoy running, biking, hiking, paddling, and rock-climbing. I grew up in the hills of southern Vermont and spent my summers as a kid on Squam Lake. I’ve been living in the Mount Washington Valley for five years, and every day I am still amazed by the beauty of this place.”

Robin teaches Roll & Renew on Monday’s from 8:15 AM – 9:30 AM

 

 

“I love teaching Yoga and Ayurveda for a living, but when I am not working on both of my businesses, Zenergie Yoga & Ayurveda + Zen Union, I am hosting for the local television station, White Mountains TV via Outside Television on Explore the White Mountains and White Mountains Today!

In my free time, I am creating balance for myself and cherishing relationships with loved ones, such as my fiancé, Justin, and my kitty, Aura Luna. Nature, particularly water and especially the ocean, are always calling to me! Sunshine on my skin is one of the most nourishing sensations for me. Meditation and music are both healing modalities that are part of my daily routine. Actually, I just began guitar lessons again recently! Singing in the car is quite common for me and I jokingly refer to it as CARaoke, since those are my initials, as well. Reading and writing are a couple of my favorite things to do, too. Traveling, meeting new people, and trying new artistic or athletic activities are always fun!

My life well-lived involves being a lifelong learner, creating my own reality, and continually trying something new! If you decide to join me for class, I am looking at Yoga through the lens of Ayurveda, so there will be a balancing of feminine, Yin, and masculine, Yang, energy along with a variety of styles, such as Yin, Vinyasa, and Nidra.

I will end with one of my favorite lyrical quotes by Jay-Z, “Do not ever go with the flow. Be the flow!” Namaste.”

“I’m an avid adventurer that is always eager to get outside and explore! I am blessed to have amazing adventure partner in my husband, Perry, and dog, Ike. In snow season, you can find us back country skiing every day we can. In the non-snow seasons, we love to mountain bike, climb, hike and paddle. My full time job is with NH Fish and Game researching an endangered alpine butterfly where I spend my work days hiking in the White Mountains. Keep an eye out for me with my big butterfly net!
Every day that I practice yoga, I simply feel better. My class, Dynamic Hatha, was created to inspire everyone to practice yoga and, hopefully, feel good too! Yoga can fit into any moment in life and my class helps build strength, stamina, and flexibility, while exploring mindfulness and clarity that one can use every day”

Sam teaches Dynamic Hatha on Wednesdays at 10AM

Meet Sue!

When she’s not sharing yoga, she loves to hike and ski. “Winter is the best time to hike; no bugs, no crowds, and amazing beauty! I feel so blessed to be living in this very special place with the mountains so close, and I take every spare moment to be out in the woods all year round! In the winter it’s hiking, skiing downhill and Nordic, and snowshoeing. In the summer I love to find those ice cold mountain streams and jump in! I also love reading and spending time with my family, and our two dogs.

In my classes, I try to help people relax and breathe, first and foremost. It’s fun to get some heat and strength building movement happening, but if you’re struggling to push yourself into “doing it right” it’s easy to get injured. Simple is better, and to quote a favorite teacher of mine, “Gentle is the new advanced.” Yoga should be a practice that everyone can use throughout their whole life, whether it’s a strong asana, or quiet conscious breathing. I try to offer this openness for people to practice in the way that works best for the individual body, and state of mind in the moment.”

Sue teaches Tuesday’s at 6PM, and again on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8:15AM.
