Robin Hashway

Robin began practicing yoga and fell, quick and hard, in love with the physical practice. Always an athlete, yoga provided not only strength training, but a delicious sense of full body ease, not something she usually associated with "working out." And when the opportunity arose to take a teacher training, she jumped in. Robin had no intention of teaching, only wanting to learn more about the physical benefits of asana, and to begin to dive into the history and philosophy of a practice that was quickly transforming not only her body, but her sense of calm and wellbeing. Part of the training requirement was practice teaching, so Robin forced her family to meet every week for an hour so she could pass along the sequences and postures she was learning. By the end of her training, Robin was itching to start passing on everything she could to anyone who would listen, and lo and behold, applied to teach.
Robin trained in Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga right here at Providence Power Yoga, earning her 200 hour RYT in February of 2016, and began teaching in April of the same year. She approaches the asana practice as a way to explore the body and mind with curiosity and joy. By creating strong, sometimes unusual sequences based on the foundational postures, students build strength and security. Steady vinyasa flow, supplemented with graceful organic movements (and just a little fun) allows the student to find their own freedom of expression on the mat. 
 

 



Robin Hashway instructs the following:
  • $8 @ 8:00 - All Levels Heated Vinyasa (PPY)
  • $8 at 8:00 am!  All Levels Vinyasa taught by our PPY Teachers.  Some classes might be taught by newer teachers because...we all have to start somewhere and at one point in our lives we were all a beginner at something! Class is heated to 90 degrees. 

  • $8 Community All Levels Heated Vinyasa

  • Sunrise Yoga (PPY)
  • Awaken the body and awaken the mind with a reassuring combination of breath and asana. This early morning class will move you slowly and mindfully through traditional sun salutations and skillfully crafted vinyasa sequences.

    The room is heated to 90 degrees with moderate humidity. This class is accessible to all levels.


  • Hatha Vinyasa
  • In Hatha Vinyasa, there is emphasis on proper alignment to ensure that the most benefit is derived from the pose and that risk of injury is reduced. Props, including blankets, blocks and straps, are incorporated to achieve proper alignment. Breathing is emphasized to help students experience a mindful practice. Breathing (Pranayama) and meditation techniques may also be taught as a class focus. Hatha Vinyasa is an excellent style for students who appreciate longer holds in individual postures so that they may begin to experience the poses more deeply from the inside. Students who prefer a slower and more meditative approach to practice (while still reaping the benefits of a physical practice) will benefit greatly from Hatha Vinyasa. The intention for this class is to be able to express yourself in the practice of yoga and to embrace that it is your practice and that you are invited to show up exactly as you are.

    The room is heated between 85-90 degrees with some humidity. This class is accessible to all levels.


  • All Levels Heated Vinyasa (PPY)
  • Vinyasa is a popular style of yoga that seamlessly links breath with movement. It is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’ or ‘meditation in motion’ because of the smooth way in which the poses transition from one to another, almost like a dance. These classes will offer a challenging flow usually with longer holds but always with a focus on breath and movement. We will flow through fun, creative, and at times unexpected sequences that bring the breath along for the ride. We will leave plenty of room to refine alignment, experiment with variations, and get acquainted or reacquainted with the more subtle aspects of the practice.

    All levels are welcome and supported! The room will be heated to approximately 90 degrees with a comfortable level of humidity.

     

  • YinYasa
  • This class is a beautiful blend of yang (active yoga) with yin (passive yoga). Sequencing will include low to the earth yoga to build strength, warmth and flow with fundamental yoga postures while relieving stress and tension by connecting breath with mindful movements. Active yoga might include work to build to a peak pose or a creative sequence.  YinYas  creates flexibility, mindfulness and softness to release the connective tissues, create space and integrity in the joints and remove blockages to internal energy flow.

    Suitable for all levels.
