About

Rob Hartman researches, develops and teaches advanced stress resilience techniques. He’s trained war veterans, members of the Special Forces, executives, yoga teachers, physical therapists, martial artists, medical doctors, lawyers, gamers and stressed parents, among others.

His clients include workers from the Department of State, World Bank, Department of Defense, Arlington Health & Human Services, Voice of America and George Washington University.

Rob’s unique approach synthesizes techniques from the continued training and certifications he pursues. These techniques work on a physiological level to bring about states of deep relaxation. He founded a nonprofit, the StressFreeDC project, in an effort to help the DC community and to teach stress resilience skills to war veterans, teachers and social services staff.

Since 2009, Rob has trained with neuroscientists, yogis, shaman, stress experts and researchers in the United States, India, Bali and Peru. He is a certified Tension & Trauma Release Exercise Practitioner and a graduate of the following programs:

Rob has a Masters in Technology Management from George Mason University and two decades’ professional experience in cyber security/warfare. He has helped clients in the defense, civilian and intelligence sectors of the U.S. government, and he designed the first computer security strategy for the Costa Rican government. In his free time, Rob enjoys hikes, exploring coffee shops in foreign lands, and his dog, Yogi.
