Hi, I’m Linda Patterson
I'm excited to start this journey with you... it's one I'm very familiar with. YogaVine's beginners course is what I wish existed when I was a new yoga student.
I've taught this course in-studio for over six years. I'm excited to be able to reach further and into the lives of women who aren't comfortable (yet) wandering into a yoga studio or those that don't have true beginner options to choose from.
I've been an overweight, confidence-lacking, body-hating newbie on the yoga mat. I'm the one that showed up in tee shirts three sizes too big to hide my body. That's not me anymore. While I may never be skinny, I am strong, tone, flexible and confident. I attribute those things to my yoga practice. It's not always a pretty practice, but it works.
I've learned to embrace the teachings of yoga and the body that shows up on my mat. I can help you do that, too.
If it helps you to feel like you're in good hands, my background is that I am an advanced (E-RYT 500) yoga teacher and a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), I teach beginner students and beginner teachers, I have over 9,000 hours of teaching experience. But I really think the most important thing is that I've walked this path. I get it. Let's do this together.
