During her journey, she met and learned from physicians, psychologists, yoga teachers, naturopathic doctors, and other healers. While in India, Dr. Robins-Brown studied at the National Institute for Mental Health and Neuroscience (NIMHANS), an allopathic hospital researching yoga in mental health disorders, in Bangalore, where she was honored to teach staff, faculty and patients yoga.
