Vinyasa , Yin And Restorative (Guest Teacher)
Patti Chou descends from the beautiful island of Taiwan where it was her sister who first introduced her to the practice of yoga. When Patti stepped into her first class, she was unaware it was yoga, but found herself absolutely fascinated with the method of sequence and structure. It humbled her to realize that you could build a momentum and set off a chain reaction to strengthen your body and mind from the inside out. Patti practiced yoga daily until one fateful day, she fell from a slack line and broke her humerus bone. Little did she know, this injury would become her greatest yoga teacher. Starting again slowly, Patti learned how to work with her limitations and drop the attachments she had to the future or past state of her body. As her healing progressed through the path of yoga, she felt a calling to share this with others. Her teaching approach was greatly impacted by what she learned in recovery: acceptance of the present moment with healing as the only goal. With experience of 5 years of teaching, she has become a great Vinyasa Ashtanga teacher who also instructs teaching methodology and sequencing. Patti continues to inspire people from different nationalities. Her long term goal is to have students take what they’ve learned in her classes and apply it to other aspects of their lives.
