She is a graduate of Iyengar Yoga Association of Los Angeles Teacher Training Program and is certified (CIYT) at the Intermediate Junior-Level 2. Robyn completed a three Iyengar Yoga Therapeutic Training Program, she is certified by the International Association for Yoga Therapy (C-IAYT) and is registered with Yoga Alliance (ERYA-500).
