With a Dancing Heart
Robin Kassis ~ Yoga, Wholeness Energetics & Reiki
I love it that yoga, which is such an integral part of my life, is so portable. I can take it anywhere, whether it's the red rocks of Sedona, the beaches of Cape Cod or inside a studio. My practice has deeply informed and transformed my life, and it is a gift to be able to share that with my students, both privately and in classes.
My training and certification was completed 25 years ago through the Kriya tradition. But my personal practice began in my early twenties, and became more focused in my forties, when I decided to become a teacher. My style is to address individual needs for correct alignment and respectful engagement. Classes incorporate pranayama or breath practice, which supports depth in each pose, allowing a student to listen and find his/her edge without going beyond the body's acceptable range.
I love teaching yoga and my hope is to instill that passion and care to my students as they open to transformation in body, mind and spirit.
In addition to yoga, I am a Usui Reiki Master and am available for private sessions for Reiki and sessions that combine yoga with energy work.
As a certified Wholeness Energetics practitioner, I offer spiritual counseling and energy work to support change and empowerment in unpacking old patterns and beliefs. This practice allows for deep healing, as accessing the subconscious happens quickly through the body rather than relying on the mind. I pull in the methodology of Donna Eden's energy medicine to complement these healing modalities.
Meditation, hiking, reading, singing and spending time with loved ones is the foundation of my life.
Robin teaches yoga in the context of an aesthetic appreciation. She brings balance poses I’ve never seen that are simply beautiful in shape. She encourages a sense of design, and while I may be struggling with a pose, the geometry helps me do the pose more completely, while also being in a space that respects the natural form of the human body, beautiful in all its shapes.

"Robin is that rare individual who combines tremendous personal integrity and power with a vast capacity to help others move faster and further along their own healing path. She works with the utmost respect for each individual's unique development, all the while harnessing universal energies for health and healing on behalf of each person with whom she comes into contact. I have greatly enjoyed and benefited from all of my experiences with Robin in her professional capacities, and unreservedly recommend her as a healer and as a yoga teacher." GW
