Yoga Classes in Maine Begin November 2nd

Happy Autumn, everyone! It's a very special time for me this year as I move back to South Portland on October 31st.

I am so pleased to announce these weekly yoga classes in South Portland, Scarborough & Portland starting the first week of November! 

Scarborough Yoga is brand new and attached to Chiropractic Family Wellness Center. My family (even the dogs!) and I have been receiving chiropractic adjustments by Dr. Meg Pickering and Dr. Carroll Coyle for 11 years.  I felt highly motivated to  join the yoga practice in their healing arts facility, and their opening even contributed to deciding when to move home!

I am a South Portland resident for many years now, and even lived above the Breathing Room studio on Broadway for weeks this summer! Breathing Room is such a warm, inviting community oriented studio centered in SoPo. I've offered workshops and classes there since summer 2013, and now we make it the studio home for a weekly RoZoYo® astrology inspired yoga class!

Please join me!

This class is designed to suit all levels including beginners. Starts Tues. Nov. 4th

Two classes to be announced at Maine Hatha Yoga on Dartmouth Street in Portland. Look for me there starting November 2nd and at the Open House on November 1st. Maine Hatha is a heated studio where I've practiced yoga since 2003. They have a new and expanded schedule beginning Sunday, November 2nd. See you there! Times tba very soon. We'll really heat it up for deep stretches and a fusion of vinyasa and hot yoga. Delicious.

Moving Back to Maine!

Robin's Zodiac Zone & Yoga is coming to Maine to stay!

Beginning in November, I'll provide specialized RoZoYo™ workshops (astrology based yoga and meditation), private and small group sessions, intuitive readings and personal life coaching in Maine. Email and phone sessions will also continue, and are available wherever you are, but it will be nice to see many of you in person again or for the first time!

Robin's Nest is my Prenatal Yoga practice. I'm a Pranakriya Prenatal Yoga teacher and will be starting classes for Mamas with babies due in 2015. If you have a friend or family member who may be interested in meeting other Mamas to be and forming community as well as preparing body, mind and spirit for motherhood, please put her in touch with me! A separate Pre-conception Yoga class and private sessions will also be offered. A Harvard Medical School research study showed that women who participate in mind/body programs that include yoga are nearly 3 times more likely to conceive. (Vol. 73, No.4) 

And, I will be teaching yoga classes in local studios to be announced! My schedule is updated weekly at www.RoZoYo.com/yoga/class_schedule

Robin's Zodiac Zone 4casts are now available for listening on Soundcloud. Download the Soundcloud app to your mobile phone or ipad. It's free! Click follow and the forecasts will appear in your feed! Soundcloud is currently updated every Monday.

Hey, Maine, it will be good to see you again, every day!

Peace, love & handstands!


RoZoYo™ is Robin's Zodiac Yoga, events, readings, media & a fusion of all of the above

WCYY & Robin's Zodiac Zone Part Ways

Robin's Zodiac Zone aired on WCYY from May of 2000 when I started doing Alternative Mornings until Friday, August 29th, 2014. It was a great run, and a wonderful thing that WCYY and also WHOM continued to air Robin's Zodiac Zone for over a year after I left the morning show.

It was simply a business decision on the part of Townsquare Media, the most recent owners. The company's former General Manager chose to keep Robin's Zodiac Zone on the radio as a feature in light of the longevity and loyalty of many listeners in Maine and New Hampshire who tuned in for the Moon sign and color each morning. He has since moved on from the company as well. 

Change happens. It's okay. I have only love for all the time I spent on the radio there, for my colleagues there, and for all the awesome people I've met and interacted with through WCYY, WHOM, and WBLM. Words cannot really capture how much the stations, WCYY in particular, are a huge part of my heart and soul. 

Having said that, I do feel badly that the radio broadcast and the Zodiac Zone text will be discontinued for now. I know how many of you value it and consider it a part of your morning. I've always enjoyed creating it for you with the hope it helped make every day your best day possible! I'm very thankful for each and every one of you who listens, reads, and keeps in touch. You have made my experience so rich! It's time we transform that, and move the venue from CYY/HOM to...(to be continued)

This is new news to me as of Thursday, so there is no plan yet for where Robin's Zodiac Zone will find a new home on radio or other media outlet. I am open to possibilities including your suggestions. 

I've written your daily forecasts since July of 1999 and you will still find them at Robin's Zodiac Zone and the RoZoYo™ web sites! For the week ahead, I've posted Soundcloud links with the audio. This is a temporary way to give you the forecast while other plans develop. *

I'll see those of you in Maine this fall and winter! For RoZoYo™ Yoga & Gallery style astrology readings, I'm at Greener Postures in South Portland on Saturday, December 6th. Registration is on now! And I will have more news very soon. 

I appreciate all your support and loyalty during these next transitions! Stay connected!

Robin's Zodiac Zone September Day by Day Planner

October 4th to 25th Mercury retrograde returns, and there will be two October eclipses on the 8th and 23rd. September is stable ground to build from, and maybe if you get the foundation down, the trembles & quakes will shake you less! 

I see plenty of challenge in September, particularly in negotiating plans that involve multiple parties, in managing reactions to change and news, and with scale of spending & projects, as in how much to expand or reign things in. At the same time, there is lots of room for growth and solid decision making.

Here are some key words for September days:

September 1 Transitions, Communicate honestly
September 2- 3 Respond thoughtfully & deliberately, Create order
September 4- 5 Produce, Show results, Be willing to face fears
September 6 Gather, Find middle ground, Collaborate
September 7 Stay out of debates, Practice focusing & refocusing
(Full Moon September 8th in Pisces 9:38 pm EDT)
September 8- 9 Resolve feelings, Step out of dysfunction, Surround yourself with art, music, film, creative friends
September 10 Expand ideas, Be real in relationships
September 11 Structure & Define
September 12 Construct, Build, Connect with each other
September 13 Be ready for anything, Avoid overreacting
September 14 Process, Keep expectations reasonable (in love)
September 15 Be spontaneous, Revise, Enjoy people
September 16 Nurture & Dream
September 17 Protect your interests & minimize reactions
September 18 Negotiate, Simplify
September 19- 20 Action, Growth, Know your limits
September 21 Negotiate, Talk serious business, Be realistic
September 22 Heal old wounds, Resolve
September 23 Be passionate & Intentional, Reconsider
(New Moon in Libra September 24th 2:14 am)
September 24- 25 Be decisive, Adjust to sudden shifts
September 26 Communicate well, Team up
September 27 Ferret out information, Move ahead
September 28 Scale down if necessary, Show love
September 29- 30 Adventures, Changes of scenery, 
Take action (29th) Find freedom (30th)

I'll expand on these ideas in weekly posts at www.RoZoYo.com/zodiac or www.robinszodiaczone.com

Late August Updates

Llewellyn Moon Sign Book 2015 is out now. My section is about why eating locally grown foods can benefit your health including the immune system. You can find it in bookstores, on Amazon, and direct from Llewellyn.com. Thank you to Llewellyn for giving me the opportunity to write and share since 2003!

My next workshop in Maine is Saturday, December 6th, 2014, and even if that seems far off now, registration is on at www.greenerposturesyoga.com ! I'll be at the South Portland studio this time and I can't wait to give a home town workshop and gallery style readings. Yoga for your sign and winter astrology all in one is RoZoYo™! 

In Tampa, coming right up on Saturday, September 13th, I'll be leading a 90 minute RoZoYo™ workshop at Yogani with posture, mudra, meditations, and autumn astrology woven through the practice. From Aries to Pisces, all will receive insights to their fall forecast, favored times, and postures correlated to your sign. Register at www.Yogani.com (scroll down one post for more info)

Robin's Nest Prenatal Yoga is a focus of my practice. I am a Pranakriya Prenatal certified teacher and am fortunate to have wonderful resources and mentors here in Tampa. Stay tuned for more Robin's Nest news, especially those of you planning to be become Mamas in the near future! 

Happy Virgo New Moon August 25th! Fresh routines & changes big or small for all! Namaste!
