Patrick started changing his life through yoga fifteen years ago. He keeps coming back to a mindful asana and meditation practice to find peace of mind, trust, physical strength and ease, and to notice the always changing and unfolding nature of life. His classes challenge with permission, holding space for students to open to their greater potential. Breath and poses are key to vinyasa yoga, but Patrick also teaches to the spirit. He has studied Bhakti Flow with Rusty Wells, vinyasa and ashtanga with Anne Marie Kramer, Bill Prysock, and Jessica Micheletti at Zuda Yoga in Sacramento, and with Jason Bowman and Pete Guinosso at Yoga Tree SF.
Patrick studied massage at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur and at the McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland. He approaches bodywork as a moving meditation, helping the recipient release tension and create a sense of wellness through full-body, integrative strokes. In addition to relaxation techniques, he is trained in deep tissue and adhesion work, which he uses as appropriate to address acute injuries and longer term restrictions.
