Growing up an athlete, Patty was initially drawn to the physical aspect of yoga. As she continued to explore her practice, she began to realize how physical challenges can also lead to quieting the mind, slowing the breath and releasing tension. With a B.S. in Kinesiology and Certification in Holistic Health Counseling, becoming a yoga teacher was the perfect next step, complimenting her commitment to health and nutrition. In addition to RYT-250 certification, Patty completed a 50-hour Advanced Teacher Training with Alex Auder. Patty works for Big Brothers Big Sisters and blended her two passions, yoga and empowering youth, when she became certified to teach children’s yoga through Child Light in 2013.
Patty loves sharing her practice with students. She offers gentle assists while exploring the many benefits yoga has to offer. Her classes also include challenging asanas that are sure to encourage you to find your edge!
Patty Boyle instructs the following:
Level 1/2 (Basic/Intermediate)
We pride ourselves on gearing our classes toward the actual students in the classroom and not teaching a set sequence of postures that may not be suitable for everyone. This class will blend the basics covered in Level 1 (Basic) classes with a more moderate pace which is introduced in Level 2 (Intermediate) classes, depending on who is in the room that day. Basic postures will be covered, and more advanced modifications will be offered for those ready to deepen their postures and yoga practice. See our class descriptions for Level 1 and Level 2 classes for more detail.
Level 2 (Intermediate)
This is a moderately paced class and students continue to build awareness, strength, skill and focus. It is helpful to have a basic understanding of sun salutations, but this is not required to attend the class. Posture sequences will be linked by vinyasa flow, designed to raise energy in the body while keeping the mind steady. Various hand and arm balances may be offered, however, modifications are offered to make this class accessible to all students.
Unwind & Restore
This all levels class offers a chance for you to slow down, find balance and restore mid-way through your week. The gentle, relaxing pace prepares you for a short sitting meditation to quiet the mind prior to savasana. If you've had an interest in starting a meditation practice, or are looking for a calming practice, this class is for you.
Fabulous First Friday Flow
Held on the first Friday of every month, this fun class has a different theme every month. It offers a unique physical challenge of posture sequences linked by vinyasa flow, designed to raise energy in the body while keeping the mind steady. Students of all skill levels will be accommodated in this class and will be challenged to work to their full potential. Get ready for some fun!!
