Mind Body Fitness Class Descriptions

Flow Yoga

This class begins with a moderately-paced vinyasa flow to warm up the muscles and energize the body. The latter portion of the class focuses on deep stretches in which the poses are held for 2-5 minutes. This class is suitable for all levels and will leave you feeling rested and refreshed.


This class will relieve stress while you sweat and dance the class away. Zumba® is a combination of international dance rhythms combined with dance and fitness exercises for a dynamic, fun and engaging workout.


Mind Body Fitness Instructors

Robyn has been a dedicated yogini for over thirteen years. She was initially attracted to the athletic component of yoga, but over time, has found yoga far more beneficial in helping her reduce anxiety and empathize with others.

She completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification through Floating Yoga School in Bend, OR and Reiki Level 2 certification through Communitas Movement in Denver, CO.
