Om Shanti! I was very fortunate to be introduced to yoga early in life. My journey began at the young age of 13, learning from my aunt who teaches to people with MS in Los Angeles. I began teaching in 2006, and quickly realized it was a gift to share my practice with others. After earning my bachelor’s degree from Texas State University, I decided to travel India where I completed my 200 hour certification while living in an ashram in 2010. I have been a lead teacher trainer on our BSY team since 2016, and am now General Manager for Black Swan Yoga. Between 2016-2019 I traveled to NYC extensively to continue my yoga education where I finished my 300 hour training at Laughing Lotus Yoga School. I keep myself busy by hiking outside with my 3 dogs and husband. You can find me on facebook at Practice With Patsy, where I am happy to connect with my students. I am deeply inspired by the teachings of Ram Das and my approach to teaching yoga combines safe, effective alignment based on Hatha teachings mixed with a creative, uplifting, nurturing, and light-hearted practice. I hope to see you on your mat soon!
