Roberta conducts local and out of town workshops. She specializes in yoga for scoliosis and back care.  She uses props to help students and teachers of all levels transform their backbends, twists, standing and seated postures, as well as inversions like sarvangasana (shoulderstand).    

She also works with individuals who have physical challenges, specifically individuals with Multiple Sclerosis, CMT, Parkinson's Disease, scoliosis, and amputees in private, semi-private and group sessions.

Roberta's Personal Practice Philosophy:

Health issues have changed and deepened my practice. You will see many photos of me using a variety of props. On days I don't feel well, instead of saying, "I can't practice today", yoga has taught me to say, "How can I practice today?"
