For all levels.
At the heart of yoga is the development of personal strength and resilience. Embodyoga is a radical and inclusive approach that supports us in entering the body-mind fully, with clarity, awareness, self-acceptance, compassion, and awe. It teaches us how to increase our individual and universal connection to Core, the essence of our true nature. This self-knowledge deepens our relationships to loved ones, our community, and our environment. We gain more vitality and satisfaction in our yoga practice and in all that we do.

- Develop core strength
- Learn techniques for deepening core awareness and stabilizing body and mind
- Embody softness and receptivity to support strength without hardening
- Enliven the whole being as we move through a cleansing and soothing slow-flow practice.
Patty offers techniques for cultivating and toning a strong, supple, and lively core using breath and movement.
