About Me

I come to the work of The Desire Map as a Yoga Instructor who wants more depth for her students. I found that teaching the postures simply wasn’t enough. I wanted to help my students bring their practice of yoga off the mat and into their lives. Teaching The Desire Map process alongside The Fire Starter Sessions allows me to dig deep into the process of Inquiry creating space for real life transformation & growth. In addition to this work, I also coach women in the areas of empowerment, sexuality & relationship.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

focused, flow, generous, spacious, sexy

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

My husband and I sequestered ourselves away in my yoga studio over the Christmas Holidays and came out the other side with incredible clarity, valuable understanding of each other’s desires, and a badass list of core desired feelings!

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

Every single week, I get out my Desire Map Planner and look at my week with my core desired feelings in mind. I’ve begun saying “yes” to more activities and projects that light be up and “no” to the ones that feel dull and uninspiring. My CDF has been a phenomenal guide to showing me how to move forward in my personal and business life. I’m seeing more prosperity, more possibility and more joy, passion, ease, abundance and creativity every day!

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

I started teaching yoga because I wanted to share the power of awareness & mindful living. The CDF process is one of the most powerful inquiry tools available, and as a yogini inquiry is totally my thing! I love having a program that so beautifully guides the process toward discovering your core desired feelings.


Robin is a consummate coach. She taught me that if I focused on my emotions and values, the compass for my life and goals would become aligned. Goal setting has since become pleasurable and gratifying. Choose to feel empowered and emboldened. Learn to be more, desire more, and deserve more!

Your Core Desired Feelings

You deserve: eye contact , smiles in the morning, food made with pure intention, clean drinking water, fresh air, Hello, Please, Thank-you, time to think about it, a chance to show them what you’re made of, a second chance, an education, health care — including dental, multiple orgasms, weekends off , eight hours of sleep, play before work, to change your mind, to say no, to say yes, to have your deepest needs met, to be seen , to be loved for who you really are.
You deserve all of this — and more — just because you showed up to life.
Your Core Desired Feelings is a workshop where you'll begin the journey to discovering what you want most out of your life. Based on the best-selling book The Desire Map, we get straight to the heart of the matter: How you want to feel.
Something magical happens when you focus on creating your core desired feelings:
* You remember your light, your true nature, your source — the life source that connects us all.
* You use your preferred feelings as a guidance system for making choices and for being more present and alive.
* You are able to access comfort and clarity during painful times.
*You accentuate the positive aspects of your life, while still honoring, and not invalidating, the negative parts that you want to change.
Join me for an afternoon of soulful self-care at Kenosee Inns + Cabins on February 16th.
We will begin with a grounding meditation and cacao ceremony followed by a Desire Map workshop that will get you started on your journey towards discovering your Core Desired Feelings.
We'll break midway for a nourishing gentle all levels yoga practice and complete our day with a restful Yoga Nidra.
Feel free to stay after class for some community connection and delicious food prepared by Shawna. 
Exchange: $55 (includes ceremonial cacao + digital workbook)
Soft cover workbooks available (limited supply) for $25
Time: 12pm - 3:30pm
Location: Kenosee Inn + Cabins
