Inherently therapeutic, yoga offers a bridge to self-investigation and discovery. Yoga Therapy enhances inner awareness and balance through the ancient practices of Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath awareness) and Meditation. Injury, aging and stress are reduced or improved by these practices.
Pat was introduced to yoga through Richard Hittleman’s 28 Day Exercise Plan, which opened a new world for her. In 1985, while living in Minneapolis, MN, she was initiated in the Himalayan Tradition by Swami Veda Bharati. Moving to New York City for work in 1993, she lived and practiced yoga in the Sivananda Ashram. During that same time, she completed my 200 hour Yoga Teachers Training at the Sivananda in Val Morin, Canada, and taught at the ashram for nine years. Continuing her studies, she became a IAYT certificated 800 hour Yoga Therapist in April 2018. She currently teach individual and group classes in Savannah, GA, and is an assistant in the school of Integrative Yoga Therapy at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA. She is a registered E-RYT-500 yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapist.
