Patricia is a 500 RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and has taught over 12,000 yoga classes since 1990. She began yoga in her teens studying Transcendental Meditation. After a decade in training and promotion at Hallmark Cards, Patricia co-directed one of Kansas City’s first yoga studios, The Yoga Center, and in 1999 founded the Yoga Gallery. She spent six weeks in India with Rotary International allowing her a chance to study yoga in its country of origin. Patricia’s love of yoga, breathing, and meditation stems from experiencing and witnessing what a dedicated practice can create: full spectrum benefits, inside out. Breathing is one of the most natural things we do. With guidance, the breath is a link to the state of conscious stillness, where profound rest can be achieved. This restful state of meditation can ease mental anxiety and promote wellbeing.
