"My yoga journey with Pattie has been a very special and personal journey...  I started my yoga journey many years ago, with the insistence of my brother, in hopes of looking for some way to help deal with my manic depression.  Pattie was the key to unlocking what I needed and changed me from that day forward, even though I didn’t realize it yet.  First class I was worried that it was going to be just one of those fad things that people were doing, main stream yoga is what I call it.  Wow was I so wrong.  At the end of the class, during savasana I cried.  It was like those soft words Pattie spoke had pulled all the darkness out and put the light back into me.  Guiding me to a better state of mind.  That was the first time I felt at peace in long long time.  Each class I attended, the better I felt.  Though her classes were always full of other people, it always felt personal.  Through the moves to each pose, to the mantras, the music, the radiation of energy through each breath and ohm was rejuvenating.  Pattie is a wonderful teacher in the practice of true yoga.  And without her teachings, I’d still be lost.  I will be forever grateful for how much she helped me heal."

“My first practice with Pattie in the summer of 2016 was, unbeknownst to me, the beginning of one of the most transformative experiences of my life. While the union with the Self can be found anywhere and in anything, there is something special about a practice with Pattie that cannot be duplicated. Her devotion to the roots of yoga is a stable base upon which her personal style grows and changes, each time creating a unique experience for every person with whom she shares her energy. She guides a practice with both ease and ferocity, and speaks her truth without invalidating other facets of truth. She facilitates a non-judgemental environment, allowing things to be as they are, while setting the stage to dive ever deeper into the realm of possibility. She is a gift to the community and to the world, and a leader by example. She truly is a yogi. “

"When I first moved to Alberta I had only practiced Bikram yoga and had no experience with even how to hold a downward dog. Pattie was teaching in Fort McMurray and I quickly got hooked on this new to me Hatha yoga at HigherHealth. From the humble beginnings of their tiny little studio that held maybe a max of 10 people, patties classes were always packed. Soon I began to learn why. Pattie would always speak to us about something that was resonating with her in her readings and current events in the world and would inspire us to think of these things and use them as motivation during the difficult parts of the class. She would have absolute beginners following class as well as very experienced yogis going into the deepest aspects of the postures. The atmosphere was always so positive and seeing these impressive long time practitioners accomplishing arm balances and inversions was always encouraged but never pushed. I feel you could truly go to any of Patties classes being an absolute beginner all the way to someone with a dedicated daily practise and everyone in between and totally thoroughly love class and be pushed just to your edge. Once Pattie began playing the harmonium and chanting classes got even more therapeutic for me. At first I was a very athletic lady looking for a stretch to keep my body in balance. And after years of practice I have come to realize how much more therapeutic yoga can be for mental health let alone physical. I have been to a lot of yoga studios trying all different styles and I can honestly say Pattie is the yoga instructor that has most inspired me, please try a class with her and you will just ‘get it’. Namaste"
