– Robyn Unwin –
Do you have a personal philosophy you live by? Every year, I strive to do more of what I love and less of what I don’t love. I start every year by making 2 lists: a ‘Start Doing’ and ‘Stop Doing’ list, and I’ve found that since I’ve been living by that philosophy, every year has been better than the last.
What do you do to spur creativity? I’m a huge believer in taking classes and ‘ group art’, so I treat myself to at least 3 art sabbaticals a year, and learn new techniques and skills from various teachers. Right after the Yoga Conference this year, I’m off to Portland for Art and Soul, my first ‘art week’ of the year.
Describe your personal yoga practice. I can be somewhat ‘commitment-phobic’, so my answer surprises me – but the best thing I’ve done for myself and my practice is to commit to one yoga shala and sign up for unlimited classes for the year. I’ve come to know most of the teachers and feel a sense of community and camaraderie with the people I share classes with. I love that this year’s theme for the Victoria Yoga Conference is BELONGING – that’s what I feel when I practice at my studio.
How did you begin to practice yoga? I took a yoga teacher training program when I first started practicing (only to find that teaching yoga is WAY harder than it looks!). I’m happier as a lifetime student of yoga, and really appreciate the skill of an excellent yoga instructor!
