about me, as a yoga teacher

robin & skeleton 3

I’m registered with the Canadian Yoga Alliance as a CYA-E-RYT500, which means that I’ve participated in 500 hours of formal Yoga Teacher Training in an accredited school – in my case at Yogaspace in Toronto -and I have “E” for experience.  In addition, I’m certified to teach Yoga for Round Bodies, Adapted Yoga: Sit, Stand, or Wheel; and Yoga for Seniors.   My focus is on Restorative Yoga, beginner Hatha Yoga, and adapted yoga. 

I currently teach small group, public classes at Red River Acupuncture.  The small yoga classes allow each student to receive plenty of individual attention. I also have a private practice at Red River Acupuncture where I offer individual lessons, and bodywork.  I recently received certification in Thai yoga Massage through Navina Thai Yoga Therapy. From time to time I offer workshops on specific topics, including Yoga for Gardeners and Basic Body Awareness.

I love to explain anatomy and when class size allows, I often offer simple bodywork in my classes.  I belong to Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, a national professional association that recognizes me as competent in Reiki, reflexology, massage (but not RMT), Thai massage, and CranioSacral1 as well as in Yoga instruction.  I also belong to the Canadian Yoga Alliance.

I enjoy teaching beginners, figuring out relevant modifications for classical postures, and encouraging all students to develop breath and body awareness, healthy movement, and grounded confidence in themselves as yoga students and practitioners.

For information about my teaching, or to make an appointment for a private individual lesson or for bodywork, please contact me directly at (807) 632-6591 or by email to yoga (at) robinfaye.ca.

Thank you for your interest in my work!
