Patricia has been active throughout her life—she played several team sports growing up and has participated in golf, squash and figure skating both as a youth and as an adult. She took up a serious practive of yoga in the mid-1990s and taught both mat and equipment-based Pilates for 5 years before becoming a certified GYROTONIC® instructor. In 2007, after three years of intensive self-study and private lessons in NYC, Patricia completed the GYROTONIC® Foundation course. Since then Patricia has travelled the world to study this methodology exclusively and continues to seek out opportunities to further educate herself in the work. Patricia is certified in GYROTONIC® including all of the Specialized Equipment--the Jumping Stretching Board, the Archway, the Gyrotoner and the Leg Extension Unit--and is an Authorized GYROTONIC® Pre-Trainer. She is also a certified Level 1 and Beginning Level 2 GYROKINESIS® instructor. Her studies have included GYROTONIC® Level 2 teacher training and all three Therapeutic Applications courses - Pelvic Girdle, Shoulder Girdle and Scoliosis - and for the past two years she has attended Juliu Horvath's Gyrokinesis Rejuvenation Workshop in Germany. Patricia has had the great privilege of completing formal studies with Juliu Horvath (creator/founder of GYROTONIC®), Billy Macagnone, Erika Hassan, Hilary Cartwright and Sebastian Plettenberg and she feels blessed also to have had the opportunity to learn from many other talented master trainers over the years. Patricia is grateful for what she learns daily from colleagues and clients and loves to share the work to help people to experience harmony and flow and to feel at home in their bodies. She truly believes that GYROTONIC® is for every body and that it is the best practice by which to experience the joy of exploring one's potential as a mover and, ultimately, as a spiritual being. With an MA in Education, including Special Education, Patricia is happy working with children and teenagers. She is also skilled at taking into account different learning styles and in helping all clients with goal-setting.
