Patty Young

Yoga Teacher, 500 Hour ryt

Patty has been practicing yoga for 5 years and completed her kids yoga teacher training at Del Sol with Jodi Komitor along with her 200 hr teacher training with Thomas Leverett and Claudia Castro Leverett. As a swimmer, triathlete, and marathon runner, she started doing yoga as means to stretch her tired muscles, but slowly started to realize there’s much more to yoga than that. She realized that yoga could be something that not only helped her physical body, but also her mentality and her natural habits and behaviors in her everyday life. One of her favorite quotes comes from her teacher Thomas, “Let’s stop doing yoga, let’s start feeling yoga.”

Her teaching style is quite similar to the space that she creates in her middle school language arts classroom. A class inclusive of all ability and strength levels and often has upbeat music in the background. Her favorite artist is Macklemore, so you might hear his music woven through the class. Patty is passionate about others having the opportunity to connect with their own bodies and hearts. She loves teaching at Del Sol.
