“Patricia’s online classes were a godsend, particularly during the Covid lockdown which brought with it a lot of challenges. Having a weekly class to keep up with my practice and make some time to invest in my own wellbeing was a lifeline in difficult times. The classes are well-structured and each participant still gets individual coaching to correct postures and improve practice. The online classes have so many of the benefits of a live in-person class but with the additional convenience of being able to join in from home; a perfect way to bring work and life back into balance.”
