HOT PILATES INSTRUCTOR
Robyn Lenker loves to dance--she started dancing at age 9 and danced almost every day, even working as a Utah Jazz dancer, until the day she had her first child. Robyn went on to have a total of 11 children (seven biological) and went years without working out. "My body hurt, I suffered with poor body image, and was having a hard time appreciating the little things I could do." she says.
Then she discovered yoga, Pilates, and Xtend Barre, earning her basic Mat Pilates Certification in 2010. "I noticed a definite shift in every aspect of my life," she recalls. "Not only was I physically doing better, I began to shift mentally as well." Robyn teaches jazz technique and ballet classes, and began working out at Bikram Yoga at Brick Canvas shortly after it opened. When she heard about Bikram Yoga adding Hot Pilates, she was beyond excited. "It combines all the things I love--Pilates, hot room, group fitness, and circuit-strength training. I am thrilled to be able to get everything at one location."
Robyn is a firm believer that our bodies house our souls. "When we take care of our bodies, we see changes both inside and out," she says. "Not only have I witnessed this in myself, but I have seen firsthand many people transform from the inside out when they begin to be physically fit."
