Take a plunge into all things restorative and rejuvenative in the aerial hammock. Learn how to use the hammock as a prop for restorative yoga poses, working at different hammock heights, using longer holds and providing a more passive method of instruction and practice. Follow this slow flow to connect with your inner sanctuary and recharge for all the things in life that need you.

Learn how to effectively use your hammock as a prop to enhance both active and passive restorative postures, how to safely support longer holds in the hammock and how to use your aerial practice to help support your physical and mental health. Please know that you need never leave the ground to participate in this practice.

Kindly let your instructor know of any injuries. Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart-conditions, fused spine, pregnancy beyond doctor recommendation.

Clothing requirements: tight-fitting; no zippers or metal; under-arms covered. Jewelry off. T-shirt on! No perfume.

Please pre-register for all aerial classes at least an hour in advance and arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you can safely enjoy the class. Since space is limited and setup time is necessary, we are not able to accommodate late arrivals to Aerial classes. If you sign up and do not show up to this limited space class, you will still be charged for the class.

PLEASE NOTE: In-person participants are welcome to wear masks.

Please bring your own yoga mat & props if possible (rentals available). If you have symptoms of COVID 19, please refrain from attending. Mahalo!

 Robin’s students enjoy her genuine enthusiasm and steadiness of experience. They find that regularly practicing yoga with her makes a difference in their bodies and their lives. Her classes help them to navigate the modern world. Robin sees yoga as a doorway, progressing from movement into meditation, awareness, understanding, and finally acceptance of ourselves and others. 

 Robin completed her foundational yoga teacher trainings with Suzanne Vian of Yoga Vietnam and her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training in the FluidUs Method with Carlos Tao. She has taught yoga for years and assisted with Yoga Teacher Trainings. Additionally, Robin is an experienced, registered Children’s Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, with training in Pre-Natal and Post-Natal yoga. She is an Academy of Mindful Movement Trainee.

 Robin enjoys teaching both the young and the young-at-heart. As a life-long learner, she is fascinated by recent scientific discoveries around fascia and functional movement and their implications for the practice of yoga. This curiosity has fueled exploration and experimentation to create a style of movement that is playful and dynamic, with practical benefit for everyone from absolute beginners to more advanced practitioners. She is always looking for ways to deliver a more personal experience, with both sincerity and playfulness. She links functional movement skills, breath mechanics, and novel approaches to traditional poses to increase somatic awareness, mobility, and build an organic mind/body connection. 

 Having purchased a home here in 2014, Robin is delighted to finally call Honolulu home. Originally a native of the Pacific Northwest, Robin used to visit our islands, often. Robin spent the last 13 years traveling, raising her family, and acquiring knowledge and skills in Guangzho and Shanghai, China, as well as  Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam, where she felt lucky to have been a part of the vibrant yoga culture.  Robin brings a wealth of world experience and cultural appreciation to Still & Moving Center.
