Bobbie first discovered yoga on a purple mat in her living room during the cold winter months in Alaska. Her keen interest in the history, philosophy, and health benefits of yoga led her to pursue a 200-hour vinyasa teacher certification. One of her most memorable experiences to date was leading a group of humanitarian volunteers in Nepal through sun salutations with the Himalayas in view. She is a contributor to the website: While working in Moldova for a human rights organization, Bobbie discovered Pilates and also realized how much it complemented her yoga practice. She obtained her Pilates basic mat certification upon returning to Washington DC and started teaching at MYBO. Her favorite part about teaching is helping others feel supported and confident as they explore new poses and find greater strength within.
