Robyn Raines


A southwest Virginia native, Robyn moved back to the region after completing her BFA in textile design from Moore College of Art & Design (Philadelphia); working for Betsey Johnson, New York fashion designer; and completing the Core Fellow Program at the Penland School of Crafts (NC). In 2017, she completed her Master’s degree in Natural Resources from Virginia Tech's Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability. Robyn followed a path of full-time leadership roles in both the art and human service non-profit sector, until 2020 when she decided to refocus. She owns Whitetop Yoga in Abingdon (VA), where she is excited to support gratitude, mindfulness, and intention with the local community and visitors to the region. She loves balancing her space and time between her yoga and art studios, as well as farming and traveling. (and use new pic)
