After some time, I began to find more fulfillment in my yoga practice than in my corporate job. I began to broaden my practice, no longer just focusing on the poses, but instead doing my best to incorporate yogic concepts into my daily life, and to read and study history and philosophy of yoga. I was hooked.
In August 2017, I finally acted on a decision I had been contemplating for up to a year, and quit my corporate job, so that I could become certified to teach yoga. A few months afterwards, I received my 200 hour certification from Namah Shivaya, a wonderful school and studio that does an excellent job of teaching and practicing each limb of yoga. I am currently continuing my studies of yoga, by working towards my 500 hour certification. I teach all-levels classes, as well as gentle classes. In my classes, I do my best to encourage mindfulness and body
Robin currently teaches all levels Vinyasa Flow and gentle yoga in the Hatha tradition at Namah Shivaya studio and has a small private studio of adult students ages 25-60 years. She enjoys working with students of all ages, and teaches yoga for youth ages 3-17 at Namah Shivaya Studio, Dallas Academy for Music & Performing Arts (DAMPA), and Northpark Mall. Robin’s brings to the studio her rich experience as an endurance athlete, social worker, and student of the Alexander Technique (a practice used by many performers and athletes to maximize efficiency and effectiveness in movement). Her wellness class for emerging performers at DAMPA makes use of her full range of skills.
Connection with breath and flow are central to her instruction style, as is efficient use of one’s musculoskeletal system: Robin delights in helping yoga students find greater line, ease, and balance in their practice. Her classes offer creative sequences that encourage freedom, exploration, flexibility, and strength in mind, body, and spirit.
Ms. Korevaar completed her RYT 200 training at Namah Shivaya studio in Dallas (October 2017) and her RCYT through Yogees Yoga for Kids (May 2018). She is registered with the Yoga Alliance (with CPR certification and liability insurance), and is available for group, private, and semi-private lessons.
Since graduation in May of 2017, Mr. Heffelfinger quickly moved to Dallas, TX to perform with Dark Circles Contemporary Dance as well as joining the new Netflix reality series Dancing Queen, featuring famous drag queen Alyssa Edwards. He decided to take a leap of faith and further his yogic studies by joining Namah Sivaya's teacher training program. He received his Yoga Alliance Certificate in January of 2018 and immediately decided to deepen his practice by joining the 500-hour teacher training program (anticipated March 2019). Nick's practice challenges the physical in a body positive manor. He is interested in the connection between the body and mind and how a yoga practice can influence daily life.
My main point of focus as an instructor is making Yoga accessible to everyone. I have a lot of experience working with people that are dealing with injuries or have had surgery. I enjoy helping students find the right modification for a pose.
My background as a musician has allowed me to produce all of the music that I play during my classes. That has a been a fun outlet and inspiration to my practice. I play guitar and bass at a church in Dallas regularly.
My life has benefited so much from Yoga and a mindfulness centered lifestyle. I want to share it with everyone!
