Del Mar resident named Silver Age Yoga’s Teacher of the Year

Silver Age Yoga recently announced that the first Silver Age Yoga Teacher of the Year award has been given to Bob Spindler for his tremendous commitment to supporting its mission with his volunteer efforts.

“Bob is a man of tremendous enthusiasm and energy,” said Silver Age Yoga founder Frank Iszak.

As an entrepreneur traveling all over the country to help his corporate clients motivate their employees with large training events, Spindler found yoga a great de-stressor. He took classes while traveling and when at home in Del Mar. One day he took a free seniors’ yoga class at the Riford Center in La Jolla, which was sponsored by Silver Age Yoga Community Outreach (SAYCO), a 501(c)3 non-profit.

Spindler says, “When I attended this class and witnessed the interest and fun these older students were having, I was impressed and hooked!” He was encouraged to become a SAYCO instructor by Carolyn Boline, then the SAYCO teacher at the Riford Center.

Spindler committed to become a Silver Age Yoga teacher and completed his basic 200-hour-level training in March 2007. He soon completed the Silver Age Yoga OnLine Certification course and the Silver Age Yoga Advanced Hands on Training Program.

In April 2007 Spindler began teaching SAYCO classes. To date he has taught well over 450 free yoga classes to hundreds of seniors without compensation. He is and has served on Silver Age Yoga’s board of directors for five years. Spindler comes to every major event sponsored by or for Silver Age Yoga and has volunteered his talents at their retreats and health fairs.

He currently teaches five SAYCO classes at the Riford Center in La Jolla, St. Peter’s in Del Mar, University City Older Adult Center and the Jewish Family Service Coop Apartment Activity Center. In addition to teaching five SAYCO classes a week, Spindler also enjoys attending yoga classes at different yoga studios. When possible he also attends yoga workshops to further hone his yoga teaching skills.
