Robin Daniels is a yoga teacher whose dreams and goals are to bring the healing and therapeutic aspects of Hatha Yoga to everyone in her classes. She is licensed at the 500-hour level, and holds well over 1000 hours of training. She believes the power behind a Hatha Yoga practice is that it makes us all better and healthier people in our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the universe in which we live. Her classes combine clear instruction with uplifting tantric philosophy, and a quirky sense of humor. She is known for assisting her students through challenging and good times to achieve breakthroughs on and off the mat. Robin started practicing yoga with her identical twin sister at 16, as the result of an illness, from the perspective of using yoga as a body movement therapy. She is a true testament to the healing powers of yoga. In 2004, Robin took her first Vinyasa Teacher training at Midtown Yoga, now Charm City Yoga, in Baltimore. In September, 2004, she moved to Philadelphia and continued studying Vinyasa Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and Yin Yoga. In 2007, Robin began studying Anusara Yoga, and became Anusara-Inspired. While she no longer holds her license in Anusara, she believes in the power and beauty of proper alignment, and a heart centered practice. She is also certified in Unnata Aerial Yoga, Pilates Mat and Reformer, and Yoga For the Special Child, and values the work she does with children, and adults living with disabilities.
When Robin is not on her yoga mat, she enjoys playing with her daughter, Penelope, reading, spoiling her kitty cat, Belle, and swimming. As a former marine biologist, if she could grow gills, Robin would be found living in the ocean among the fishes.

Level 2 (Intermediate)
This is a moderately paced class and students continue to build awareness, strength, skill and focus. It is helpful to have a basic understanding of sun salutations, but this is not required to attend the class. Posture sequences will be linked by vinyasa flow, designed to raise energy in the body while keeping the mind steady. Various hand and arm balances may be offered, however, modifications are offered to make this class accessible to all students.
