COVID-19 NOTE: This is a challenging time. I think this class can help. It is designed to show you how you can shift your mindset to move away from the fear-tension-pain cycle. I think you’ll find it relevant if you’re worried about adapting your movement/yoga practice to doing it at home instead of at the gym or yoga studio, if your stress is out of control and showing up in your body, or if you’d like to use this time as a springboard to get stronger and feel better.
Your Host: Robin Penney, 10 Year Yoga + Movement Coach and Creator of the More Than Stretching Method
In this talk, you will:
Discover new ways to understand the pain messages from your body and why the approaches you’ve tried may not be working
Learn how to turn the switch for pain in your brain to the OFF position with a gentle, proactive, and challenging-at-just-the-right level movement approach that strengthens your 40+ body and mind
Leave with tools to make your movement/yoga practice fit into your busy life AND to make it simple, enjoyable, and pleasurable (so you’ll actually do it!)
Your Host Robin Penney
Robin has been teaching women how to deal with chronic pain and gain the strength and confidence to thrive in their family and work-life since 2017.
She started as a yoga teacher in 2011 who knew a lot about yoga postures, but not a whole lot about functional movement and how the body actually works.
After learning some tough lessons as a mom to two teenagers and yoga teacher struggling with her own chronic pain, she cracked the code and created her signature More Than Stretching program designed to help her fellow moms with a business find areas of weakness in the bodies and strengthen those areas to increase and restore general wellbeing and enjoy their life more fully.
Robin likes to mix things up with her creative practice sequences and is known for her encouraging, supportive style of teaching and her clearly organized, step-by-step programs that break down myths, encourage a state of inquiry and trusting the intelligence of the body. Her work gives busy, driven women permission to relax and nurture themselves fully.
When she’s not working virtually with one-on-one with clients, Robin teaches online group yoga classes via Luma Yoga and La Madrona Athletic Club with an emphasis on how daily routines, breathwork, functional movement, and variety is key to longevity and healthy living for women who are trying to get life and work done.
In 2015, she and her husband, architect and self-proclaimed wine geek Mark Penney, left Newfoundland, Canada to move to the sunshine of the Santa Cruz coastline in California. They live in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains with their daughter Tylar and son Sam, and their cat, Felix.
