Patti, a registered nurse, believes in the healing benefits of mind, body, and soul that yoga provides. She has been practicing yoga for over 12 years and teaching for 6 years. Suffering with arthritis from a motor vehicle accident as a teenager, the physical strengthening and relief is what attracted Patti to yoga. However, it was the spiritual practice that kept bringing her back to the mat, leading to a greater connection to Christ.
In 2007, Patti was an integral part of forming a “Faithfully Fit Forever” team at St. Mary’s Church in Hudson, OH, a wholistic exercise and wellness program for faith communites. During this time, she pursued her desire to earn her 200 hour Registered Hatha Yoga Teacher certification at Namaste Yoga Studio in Sagamore Hills, OH. Yoga Alliance registered, she has enjoyed studying with master instructors Todd Norian, Ann Greene, Sean Corne, Tias Little, Cyndi Lee, Simon Park, Desiree Rumbaugh and Doug Keller. Most recently, Patti is a 2012 graduate of the Yahweh Yoga Teacher Training Certification program in Chandler, AZ.
Patti is grateful to have found Christian yoga as her passion, not only in practice, but in her ability to provide this gift of Christian yoga to others.
A dedicated wife and mother to two sons, she recognizes the importance of learning from life’s everyday experiences……savoring each moment.
“Deeply rooted in her Catholic faith and displaying a strong commitment to family, Patti shares her heart and hands unconditionally. The strong commitment to core values she exhibits as a mother and a wife she brings to the mat as a yoga teacher”.
Karen D, Pittsburgh, PA
“Patti ‘s voice reaches far beyond the yoga mat….She is inspiring. Patti has a clear, deep connection with her faith and spirituality that is evident in her words and actions. She is a joyful teacher with a joyful heart.”
