Patrick Riley

Patrick is a 500 hour RYT yoga teacher specializing in restorative and therapeutic yoga. He is currently in school working towards a doctorate degree in Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Patrick feels so lucky and blessed to have worked, trained, and studied with such a wide variety of amazing, enlightening teachers in his life. He uses his knowledge of structural yoga, Iyengar alignment principles, pranayama, massage, nadis and meridians, chakras, mudras, and yoga nidra to help create a safe, releasing and replenishing experience for the practitioner. Patrick encourages his students to follow their breath and celebrate and study their own personal yoga—their true nature. His classes are a mix of guided meditation, deeply relaxing postures, hands-on healing adjustments, and invitations to cultivate deep listening within one’s own body and being. When he is not leading classes or studying, Patrick enjoys spending time in nature and playing drums in his band.
