the FREE LIFE PEOPLE™ way

The name

Most of today's chronic illness is a result of the imbalance in our autonomic function due to excessive stress response activity.  Not only is stress causing physical disharmony, it is at the root of anxiety, depression and social isolation.  We embrace yoga as a means to shift the global functioning of our bodies and minds towards a state of integration, harmony and freedom. Yoga gives us tools to self-regulate and dampen stress response so that we can live more freely in every sense. We see yoga as a practice of self-observation which ultimately opens us to new connectivity with others and the world around us. Every single thing we share and teach at Free Life People is for this one common goal of freedom in mind, body & spirit. We teach teachers to share this in the context of an extremely effective, creative, ALIVE yoga class.  We train teachers to skillfully share portable tools that can be taken off the mat and into the world with the intention of living freer, happier, more integrated, connected and healthier lives. We simply strive to help people live free. #freelifepeople


THE PHILOSOPHY

At FREE LIFE PEOPLE™ we believe that your biggest teacher is already within you. Our yoga is guru-less and we don't believe in the need for opinionated spiritual teachings.  Yoga postures teach us to observe, learn and awaken through embodiment. As we re-inhabit our bodies and breath, we begin to compassionately unravel our blocks to happiness and peace within ourselves as well as within our relationships with others.  This same embodiment practice supports us in our return to our natural state of healing.  Our experience is that any time spent in self-awareness is time spent awakening spirit and re-integration of our innate well-being.   We respect that each individual has their own unique spiritual path.  We believe that every human on the planet is searching for ways to find relief from the demands, stresses and health implications of this busy, modern, digitally driven life.  FLP teachers know that teaching tools of awareness that are easily translatable and usable in every day life are the most important elements of any class.  We believe that these life tools  are what we all need to live our freest, happiest, most purposeful lives.

500HR E-RYT Owner of Root Down Yoga Studio, La Crosse, WI

500HR E-RYT Owner of Root Down Yoga Studio, La Crosse, WI

Yoga has helped me learn how to focus my attention on what is real and right now.  That may be the sensation I am feeling in my body while I am in a pose, the conversation I’m having with a loved one, or the beauty of my surroundings.   This practice has helped me manage reactivity, impulsivity and my fear of the unknown.  By learning how to access what is real and let go of what might be or what was, I experience more ease and joy.  I think the most important gift yoga has given me is a reconnection with my own inner knowing.  

I love learning and I love teaching!  I am so grateful for the opportunity to share this practice!  My classes are strong and steady with an emphasis on breath and body awareness.  I draw from my own experiences and the great teachers I’ve had the honor of studying with.   I see each class as a practice, as teacher and student, to stay connected to what is needed moment by moment and respond accordingly.  

My husband and I are the proud founders of Root Down Yoga Studio in La Crosse, Wisconsin where I am surrounded by an incredible team and community of students.  When I'm not at the studio, you'll probably find me on my horse, in my garden or hanging out at home with Nick and our two cats.

She has since trained with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli at the Yoga Campus, London in Pregnancy yoga. Katie also studied at the Institute for Integrative nutrition in New York to become a Health counsellor. Katie is a Science teacher holding a degree in Education with Biology from Exeter University.

Pregnancy yoga, especially the integration with-in a regular class setting was something Katie wanted to know more about for herself and for teaching her yoga students safely and smoothly.

A woman is even more intuitive during pregnancy and she believes that by encouraging the mother to connect with her feminine power, it can allow for a safer, kinder more nourishing practice that can be maintained throughout a pregnancy even with-in the context of a regular class.  She brings her own experiences of 3 very different pregnancies; where using yoga was something that made her experience more profound.

As a teacher her passion is creating energizing and uplifting classes that will alleviate stress and anxiety. Katie is passionate about working with self-acceptance, believing that from true self-love you can achieve whatever your heart desires.

 
 

Robbin Hallford

500HR E-RYT

500HR E-RYT

Robbin began practicing yoga in 2007 after some co-workers’ peer pressured her into going.  When Stacy and Dave opened their studio in Mansfield, Robbin showed up the first day and kept coming back. After attending Level 1 teacher training with Baron Baptiste, she became one of the first students in Stacy and Dave’s Texas Power Yoga Institute and through them attained her 200-hour teaching certification. In 2014, she completed her 500 hour with Live Love Teach and is now a 500 hr E-RYT and an YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider).

Robbin has a Bachelor degree in Exercise Science from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Master degree in Educational Leadership from Lamar University. She teaches high school science and personal fitness and loves to incorporate what she learns in the classroom into the yoga studio and what she has learned in yoga to her classroom.  In her past, she was an ACSM certified health and fitness instructor, personal trainer, adjunct professor at two universities, and fitness manager at a local YMCA. She has also worked as a physical therapy assistant and exercise physiologist in cardiac rehab. This background has served her well in doing private yoga instruction for special populations and rehabilitation. Her classes are challenging, working strength, flexibility and balance, yet are accessible to every level of student. Yin and restorative yoga are among the tools she brings to her teaching and she loves introducing people to the gentler side of yoga.

When not practicing, or teaching yoga, Robbin enjoys playing with the light of her life, her grandson. Her husband Andy, and her 3 sons rank pretty high on her list as well. She adores traveling and hanging out with her circle of friends.
