Patti Petrella has 33 years experience as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, and has been a yoga teacher since 2002. As a past fitness center owner, she has over a thousand hours experience in teaching Yoga, and she presently teaches at The Wellness Community, for cancer survivors, as well as privately scheduled classes.
Patti has immersed herself in Yoga teachings and has been lucky enough to have trained recently with Yoga master, Laurel Hodory, in Hatha, Ashtanga and Anusara Yoga, receiving her certification through the Yoga Alliance.
Her certifications in Pilates, Focus on Healing, Personal Training and a Reiki, as well as special training on how yoga can be used to restore cancer patients, further enriches her ability to create a nurturing and safe environment in her classes.
Yoga has been the foundation for Patti’s own personal spiritual practice believing that yoga can help us all achieve peace, happiness and physical well-being, and through this path we can experience ananda (bliss).
“I am a strong believer in focusing on positive energy and compassion as I encourage each student to find their own uniqueness, through a sense of lightheartedness and awareness.”
