"Yoga is the organic fuel assisting us to adapt in this ever-changing world. As you grow, yoga grows with you. As you begin to love yourself, yoga teaches you to love others.” Dina Robertson
Dina has a great love for all things metaphysical. As she describes it, she didn’t find yoga, “yoga found me.” Yoga created a space inside for change and growth, teaching her to “listen, trust and be compassionate inward as well as outward.”
Dina sees yoga as “the integration of the spiritual and the physical. Sustainability in the body is key. Dina teaches in the Maya Yoga style. Maya means "illusion" in Sanskrit, so there are always surprises. The approach is designed to build strength and flexibility, while remaining restorative and safe. She was blessed to study with Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini, earning her Maya Yoga teacher training certificate. Class with Dina is a calm and nurturing experience. Her warm personality and grounded presence create a wonderful environment to explore in. Her classes follow the “Goldilocks approach”, not too hot, not too cold. She plays music in class, a fun blend of familiar tunes and world beats.
Dina is also a Usui Reiki practitioner. She loves the study of aromatherapy and crystal therapy, which she uses in her Reiki, meditation and yoga practice. She is also a self-described “holistic fair junky,” and loves spending time with her husband, Damon, and two little Chihuahuas named Beau and Zorro. “Even though our children are all grown up I still love pampering them like little kids.” Dina is an important hub to the Cosmic Dog Community and we are very blessed to work with her.
