Yoga by Robin's eponymous studio owner and yoga instructor, Robin Soll, guides students through a range of yoga styles to hone strong bodies and centered minds. The studio's seven-day schedule boasts classes for students of all skill levels. Early risers shake off stubborn sleepiness during Wake Up Yoga classes, working through twelve invigorating postures that provide a physical and mental awakening more efficient than a tall, frosty glass of orange juice and espresso. Instructors' paces vary from fast to mindful during power-yoga sessions, where teachers guide students from one pose to the next with balance-challenging movements intended to pad limbs in sleek yet sturdy muscle jackets. A separate meditative class restores balance and clarity to the mind with deep-breathing techniques. During sessions that blend yoga and Pilates, students work through poses to correct chronically slouched spines with a series of core-strengthening floor exercises, resistance moves, and classical conditioning.
Yoga by Robin
On the last Saturday of each month, Robin Soll hosts a free yoga session, open to all. The gesture is typical of Robin, a certified instructor who has been blending her passion for yoga and her community since the 1970s. To encourage her neighbors to practice yoga, she also conducts custom sessions at homes and offices around the area, as well as demonstrations for businesses where employees can learn stress-management techniques that don’t involve ripping the photocopier in half with their bare hands.
Robin leads more in-depth classes at her Marlton studio, where she practices eight yoga styles, one of which relies on a combination of moves from yoga and Pilates. She introduces students to 26 fundamental poses during slow-paced Gentle Yoga sessions, while her faster Power Yoga courses plow through various movements and stretches. She also integrates blankets, blocks, and straps to meditative sessions where poses are held for long periods of time.
