It’s time to take better care of you. You heard me. You.
I know you know it. I know you feel it.
I’m talking about all of you.
Your body. Your mind. Your environment. Your relationships.
But not just those things.
You can call it what you want—your soul, spirit, inner self, true self, true nature, the real you, the Seer, the voice within, inspiration, your deepest longings. It’s time to give that inner “YOU” some hugs, a high-five, and a voice.
It’s time to stop the din of “I’m not ready,” “I don’t deserve it,” “It won’t work,” “I don’t have time,” “I have to take care of (fill-in-the-blank) first,” and the ever fearful “What if?”
It’s time to connect to your purpose (whatever that happens to be right now), to fulfill YOUR highest priorities instead of someone else’s, and to experience the joy you’re meant to feel in this life.
It’s time for the whole you to feel fantastic and be heard.
Hi! I’m Tami Robinson, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I love supporting you in getting what you want by taking better care of yourself at work and at home, instead of sacrificing yourself for others. As a yoga teacher, coach, analyst, and entrepreneur, I’ve learned I light up my brightest when I’m helping go-getter professionals like you feel better and focus on what matters most to you.
Do any of these examples hit home?
You feel like the little bit of self-care you manage to find in a yoga class here and there is a drop in the ocean of your tight body and wired mind’s needs.
You drop into bed exhausted after long hours of work at the expense of your workouts, your health, your relationships, and time for yourself because you’re not sure how to ask for assistance, say no, or give someone else the opportunity to shine by delegating.
Or maybe you lie awake at night because your mind is running here, there, and everywhere. When you try to meditate, your mind starts to play negative self-talk and worry tracks in repeat mode, and then you think you fail at meditation.
You find yourself bouncing and spinning off the walls like a racquet ball based on other people’s wishes, rather than where you want to go. In fact, you’re so dizzy completing others demands that you’re not even sure where you want to go or what you want to do.
You’re tired of the e-mail treadmill and having time for only the tasks that make you grumble, rather than spending time on the work that puts wind in your sails and offers your unique value.
You stay in a toxic job, relationship, or environment, hoping someday things will change and others will start valuing you and treating you better. You might even give it your all only to watch it wither when you find out that no one else cares as much as you do.
You’re so worried about what other people think that you hold yourself back from saying and doing what feels true to you and could help others.
You’ve reached a certain point of material success in your work and wonder if this is it or whether you can make the greater, more meaningful contribution you long to make.
Or maybe even the minute you slow down and begin to connect to your true self, tears well up because you realize you’ve neglected yourself for so long.
You want to feel better. Period.
You want to relax and be comfortable in your body.
You want to relieve physical pain, get strong, and feel open.
You want to breathe easier and sleep better.
You want to focus and get organized.
You want to draw on a set of tools that helps you do what YOU want.
You want to have the freedom to enjoy the beauty of the world around you.
You want to stand up for yourself and be able to say no.
You want to be heard and feel respected.
You want to feel closer in your relationships.
You want to calm your mind, be present, and get grounded.
You want to feel like you matter and make a greater contribution.
You want to be inspired and spend more time doing the things you love.
It’s totally possible.
I’m here to help you figure out how. I create safe spaces and give you tools to get grounded, let go of what’s holding you back, and take actions to feel better.
I get it. Sometimes you’re scared. Sometimes you’re embarrassed. Sometimes you feel like you should know what to do already. Sometimes you feel it’s hopeless. Sometimes you’re just too tired.
I’ve been there. Full of fear. Tight. Closed off. Hurt. Unsure. Burned out. Unfulfilled.
In fact, I’m a lot like you. I can be an over-achiever. I tend to want to please everybody, at the expense of my own well-being. I’ve been known to try to do it all, because I am enthusiastic and don’t want to miss out. I am a recovering perfectionist. I sometimes overcommit and then find myself burned out and resentful. I’ve stayed too long in situations that no longer served me. I’ve been stuck and felt like I’d never get past feeling stuck.
But I did. And I want to share with you the things that nourished me, so you can blast through your roadblocks too. I am here to give you practical steps to surpass what you thought was possible for you.
With strength, kindness, and love.
I apply ancient wisdom and techniques to modern day problems to help you:
Create a regular physical practice that feels joyful and suits your needs, whatever those happen to be in the moment, so that you’re excited to practice and you actually do it.
Breathe, and discover the power of your breath to recharge your batteries or soothe your frayed nerves in any situation.
Find meditation techniques that work for you so that you can calm your mind, sleep better, and be more productive (and happy!) during your waking hours.
Stand up for your life.
Stay focused on what lights you up.
Set boundaries so you can stop the over-generous people-pleasing habit and say no.
Live your purpose so you feel like you’re making a greater contribution.
Discover a deeper connection to yourself by taking action around what’s most important to you and letting go of the rest.
Because when you’re taking care of yourself and feeling good, you show up better for your loved ones and the world around you.
In fact, it’s the only way to truly love them—to be your best self, as counter intuitive as that sounds. When you model what you want for them, you give them the tools to be their best selves as well.
So, who am I and what led me here?
Well, in 2004, I was doing international work and leadership development for the federal government in Washington, D.C. My career there was an amazing and crazy adventure that took me many places I never could have imagined. Though I loved contributing to the resolution of global security problems, my over-achiever nature and some ill-placed personal commitments were catching up to me, and I was feeling burned out, frustrated, and stuck.
I decided to deepen a practice I had played with off and on since childhood—yoga. Though I had a regular meditation practice, I sensed yoga could nourish me in the way I needed it. When my friend and I wandered into the studio that first day, I knew I was in the right place. Yoga became my after-work obsession, and in 2006, I started teaching. A year later I left D.C. to complete my 200 and 500-hour teaching certifications, study in India, and earn certification from the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
In parallel, I started doing some consulting work, and suddenly, I had my own business. I added an associate level coaching certification from Integral Coaching Canada to the personal and leadership development certifications I already had. I quickly saw how yoga and coaching combined could help people shift perspectives, do what they love, and feel better.
Through public yoga, breathing, and meditation classes, one-on-one coaching, in-person group workshops, and now with online offerings, I’ve amassed thousands of hours of experience helping people feel better on and off their mats since I went out on my own in 2007. I’m super excited because I have some fun things in the works to help you find the joy you’re meant to have in this life!
