Patricia is a graduate of the Shanti Yoga Shala 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training and the 300-hour mentorship program. As an athlete, Patricia was drawn to yoga to become more flexible; she bounced around different studios and experimented with different types until she found a true passion for Vinyasa in 2008. Once she became a more serious practitioner Patricia quickly discovered the many benefits that yoga could bring to one's physical, emotional, and mental health. Always armed with a great playlist of songs to accompany the practice, Patricia's classes are infused with a supportive atmosphere and include physical poses accessible for students of all levels. She emphasizes proper alignment and encourages mindfulness through readings based on classical and contemporary texts, while focusing on meeting one's body and mind where it is every individual time one comes to their mat.
