Roberta is authorized to teach the Astanga system by Sri K.Pattabhi Jois.
Born in Montreal, Canada, she also speaks Italian, French and Spanish
I was first introduced to yoga in high school where a short term of practice had performed miracles on my math grades!
Originally I obtained a degree in dance & choreography from LADMI (Les Ateliers de Danse Moderne) in Montreal. And went on to work as a performer and choreographer in Canada & Europe. I also became involved in the healing arts and trained for 2 years as a spiritual healer.
In 1996 I discovered John Scotts astanga yoga classes. I fell in love with the self practice system and never looked back. I travelled to India with John and then in 2000 to Mysore where I spent 6 months with guruji (Sri K Pattabhi Jois) and sharath.
Ill always remember my first meeting with guruji; immediately feeling a sense of home; a marriage of all the, until then, disparate passions/interests of my life
most of all Id found my teacher and a powerful and truly inspiring healer.
In 98 I began teaching part-time; I taught at the Sangam, Triyoga and The Life Centre among others. In 2001 I started teaching self practice and shortly after joined Hamish at Astanga Yoga London leading a 5 morning self practice group.
In March 2005 my life was blessed once more with our beautiful baby girl Lalita. Yoga has finally bloomed into full meaning for me, as I strive for the honesty, generosity, dedication, compassion and love motherhood inspires.
