Our Excitement Level: HIGH!
It is our pleasure to welcome veteran teacher/practitioner and Mysore Program Assistant, Patty Hicks, to the regular Vinyasa Class schedule at Prana Das. Patty starts tomorrow, Sept 10th, with her new and regular Prana Vinyasa class at 9:30am. Here’s some more on Patty!
“I walked into my first led ashtanga class 20 years ago and was immediately hooked. Not only did I love the structure, therapeutic and physical qualities of the practice, but I was drawn to the meditative aspects as well. I quickly dedicated myself to a daily mysore practice under the guidance of my first teacher, Dee Silvers. I wanted to learn as much as could about Ashtanga yoga and enrolled in a teacher training program. I completed my teacher training in 2001 under Dee Silvers and Manju Jois. Soon after, I began teaching beginners and assisting in the mysore room. Over the years I came to love and appreciate how this practice could be modified to support the changes in my life, especially during and after my pregnancies. Since beginning my practice I have taken many workshops and attended retreats to deepen my practice and understanding of the 8 limbs of the Ashtanga method. I always consider myself a student of this practice. I’m grateful to be able to continue my practice with my teacher, Elizabeth Sitzler. In my classes you can expect to learn about the alignment of the postures, the importance of the breath and the physical benefits. I truly believe this practice is available to everyone. When I’m not on my mat I am busy spending time with my husband and raising our three children.”
