Robyn's Personal Story
Robyn Kade Founded the Stress Management Institute for personal and professional reasons. In 2006 Robyn had a personal experience with chronic stress for the next ten years. Her grandfather suddenly became ill and passed away three days later leaving her grandmother and family in shock. Within six months Robyn's grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia and Sundowners and Robyn became a co-caregiver at the age of 25. Her grandmother also had severe anxiety and problems with eating. She spent numerous nights in the hospital because she couldn't breathe. This situation was very stressful for Robyn and she chose to sleep a lot to escape. Eventually the stress became so overwhelming that she needed to find healthy ways to cope since she was diagnosed with high blood pressure and Rosacea. Robyn used relaxation music to help her grandmother de-stress and one on one meditation for her mother as well as herself. It was at this point Robyn started to develop her courses.
Robyn's vision is to bring her courses to as many fitness facilities as possible to help their members to better cope with stress. Professionally Robyn works with many individuals who have chronic stress and illness. She has been told many times that this program is a gift.
