PositionChief Yoga Officer
Patti is an avid traveler, adventure seeker, soul searcher and student. She began her yoga journey while teaching 4th grade, integrating breathing techniques with her students. Her introduction to mindfulness soon became a school wide initiative. She resigned from teaching to start her company, Academic Adventures in Yoga, targeting the many layers of the school district: after school enrichment, professional development workshops for teachers, and the at-risk and neglected populations (i.e. foster care, homeless, incarceration). Patti has completed over 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), is a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT), and a graduate of the Yoga Education Program: Pre K-12th grade. She holds a master’s degree in Management and a Yoga Gangster’s Certificate – teaching yoga to at-risk populations. She teaches at various locations in Tampa, offering Yin, Life Power Flow, Hatha Flow, Bikram and Ashtanga (short form). Her authenticity shines on the mat, and she believes that growth and transformation begin once you step out of your comfort zone.
