About the Presenter

Patricia came to yoga in her early 20s, as a spiritual calling. In 1976, she met B.K.S Iyengar and was immediately struck by his light, energy, insight, and genius, as well as by his joy in yoga and delightful humor. She became his devoted student and has traveled to Pune, India, to study with him (and his daughter Geeta) every year since.

She co-founded the B.K.S Iyengar Center of Cambridge, served as president of the B.K.S Iyengar Association of Massachusetts, and co-chaired the 1987 B.K.S Iyengar Yoga Convention. She helped start the National Certification Committee and has served on it for more than 23 years. Currently, she is vice president of the B.K.S. Iyengar Regional Association of New England. Under Guruji’s guidance, she has developed her own methodical and inspirational approach to practice and teaching. Patricia has been a prominent figure in the evolution of yoga in the United States and has played an active role in the Iyengar Yoga community since the mid-1980s.
