Robyn Thomas

Co-Founder of Sivatantra Yoga

Robyn has been a student of Yoga for over 15 years. She initially discovered Yoga during her first career as a professional dancer in Ballet and Contemporary arts where she worked with several Canadian and International Dance companies before choosing to retire. The Yoga practice continued. In 2007, she completed her Prana Vinyasa Flow™ Yoga Teacher Training with Shiva Rea in Los Angeles,CA and Robyn is currently certified as an Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) through Yoga Alliance International. Since then, Robyn has completed additional studies with Shana Meyerson (Kids Yoga TT, 2010), as well as John Friend, Desiree Rambaugh, and BJ Galvan in the Anusara method.

Robyn is the co-creator of Sivatantra Teacher Training; a 200 hour certified and registered training with Yoga Alliance International. She also co-teaches a 50 hour Continuing Education Intensive registered with the same organization.
In addition to teaching Yoga, Robyn is an Occupational Therapist (OTM, 2007; O.T. Reg. MB) with a primary practice in Pediatrics as well as a Canadian Certified Doula. She makes effort to combine the teachings of Yoga and her movement background with the profession of Occupational Therapy to form unique and well-rounded Asana classes. She chooses holistic interventions and advocates for health promotion when working with her clients. She is a mother of three young children; a life-partner to a wonderful man; and a lover of bicycles, fermented foods and doing all the good, hard work.
