Friday 5.15 – 6.15pm
Patricia’s yoga journey began in 2007 over night when a friend took her along to a yoga class. Immediately, she discovered a deep connection between her own body, mind and soul. She experienced inner peace while her body got stronger and her chronic headaches, migraines and stiff shoulders soon were a memory of the past.
Patricia is certified to teach Sivananda Yoga studied in India, Himalayan Hatha Yoga taught by Yogi Ashokananda, Vinyasa Flow by Mimi Kuo-Deemer, Yoga for Insomnia by Lisa Sanfilippo and Yin Yoga by Sebastian Pucelle & Murielle Burellier.
She loves to teach Slow Flow Vinyasa and Yin Yoga that allow her students to take a more mindful, meditative and spiritual approach to their yoga practice. Yin Yoga is her great love, and her passion is to help her students create a deep connection between their mind, body and soul through her classes that create space and stillness.
Patricia often travels to India to deepen her teachings by immersing into the more traditional and spiritual teachings.
Patricia also offers individual 1-2-1 session which can be a combination of yoga, meditation, pranayama, visualisations and/or Thai Yoga Massage, depending on the individual. Her sessions help you to relax even more and to release tension and blockages in your body and mind.

“We don’t use the body to get into the pose – we use the pose to get into the body”
Yin Yoga is a slow and calm practice, stretching into the connective tissues which consist of ligaments, tendons, cartilage, joints, capsules and fascia. Yin Yoga helps you to strengthen your body, to become healthier, more flexible as well as mobile, and mentally more peaceful. In order to reach the connective tissues, which by nature are less elastic than our muscles, we have to hold the postures for longer periods of time – up to 7 minutes.
Yin Yoga is about relaxing, letting go, nourishing the body and has a very meditative and mindful quality to it. Most Yin Yoga poses are seated or lying so that you can relax the body as much as possible in order to soften into the pose. With the use of props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets we allow the body to relax even deeper.
Yin Yoga comes from the Taoist tradition of Yin & Yang and focuses on passive traction targeting the deep connective tissues. Yin & Yang are two energies or qualities present in everything, one cannot exist without the other. Yin is the feminine principle and its qualities can be thought of as more internal, passive, slow, hidden and cooling. Especially in a busy world as we live in today where we already have a lot of Yang qualities that are dynamic, energetic, fast and heating we need Yin to balance it all out.
