Native to Los Angeles, Patricia Starr left the never-ending stressful world of advertising in 1998 for a more simple life. Soon after, she began working the front desk at Yoga Works in Santa Monica where she completed the Teacher Training Program with (then owners, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller) and Lisa Walford. She also completed the Specialty Prenatal Yoga Program through Silver Lake Yoga. Under Maty Ezraty’s guidance, she began teaching the prenatal classes at the Santa Monica, Montana, Westwood and Larchmont studios. Patricia currently teaches prenatal yoga at Silver Lake Yoga. She has been working with pregnant women for the past 16 years as both a yoga teacher and birth doula. She has been to over 150 births and not one has been the same. Patricia draws from her extensive knowledge and experience with these women along with the birth of her two children to guide her through her teaching. In the style of Hatha Yoga, Patricia creates a space for pregnant moms to prepare their minds and bodies for the challenges of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. With a focus on therapy, her classes are often taught according to specific needs of her students. Her classes are fun, lighthearted and, at the same time, challenging with an emphasis on strengthening the pregnant body. All levels and stages of pregnancy are welcome!
