“Outrigger Canoeing was not just a competitive sport for me, It was an ancient and cultural remembrance, a feeling of Oneness, and the chosen vehicle that would transport me back to biological roots, my spiritual home and more importantly an awareness and awakening to my higher self.” www.rubyksingh.com
Made in Hawaii, born in Brisbane, Australia, Robyn was adopted from birth and grew up on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Blessed and raised by loving parents her family was a global mixed plate, consisting of several different cultural backgrounds, including Indian, German and Maori roots. In her early 20’s, Robyn found her way to Hawaii through the sport of Outrigger Canoeing. It was not only a sport for her but the vessel that would eventually bring her back to her biological roots, back to her beloved Hawaii and to an awakening and awareness of the higher Self. Through a journey of intention, synchronicity, healing and remembrance Robyn shares her interesting story as an example of how spirit weaves through our lives and can guide us through our personal story if we stop long enough to take notice and lead us to what we are seeking, essentially the essence of our Self. A bit like putting the jigsaw pieces together.
Robyn has been paddling since 1990 and raced in Australia, Tahiti, New Zealand and Hawaii. With 12 Molokai to Oahu crossings under her belt, and two back to back World Championship wins, during this competitive period, her Outrigger paddling was enhanced by training and racing Olympic Flatwater Kayak in Australia, also competing internationally in New Zealand and Sweden to widen her experience.
Eventually transitioning from competitor to coach, as a Physical Educator, she coached a High School Sports Excellence Program and eventually moved to the islands as Head Coach of Hawaii Canoe Kayak Team for 5 years. Accompanying the youth paddlers of Hawaii to National Championships on the mainland, she was also on the coaching staff at the USA Junior Development Camps held annually at the Olympic Training Centers in Chula Vista, CA and Lake Placid, NY. Robyn also coached women’s outrigger at the Surfers Paradise Club and a season at the Outrigger Canoe Club of Hawaii.
Robyn is a teacher at the core of her being, is versed in several healing practices and is currently sharing her love of yoga and meditation with others. Recently immersing in the practice of Nia, she has just completed a white belt certification and continues to enhance the joy of life, through movement, dance, paddling and being in nature.
“Paddling Home – A Journey back to Self” is the second of her published books. The first book is a portfolio of her photographic art. “Haumea Creations,” a tribute to her personal journey and honoring nature, the Mother all Mothers.
