The Path To Riverstone

The opening of Riverstone Yoga fulfills Patricia's dream of a community-based yoga center that fuels vibrant and zestful lives. In her 20's, Patricia performed nationally and internationally as a singer/dancer before going to law school; she then worked for a top 100 firm in NYC. These two paths remained separate for many years until her first class where Patricia discovered yoga to be a powerful tool of integration. This yoga was different from the gentle image she had—it was hot, sweaty and intense and it connected mind and body like never before.

Patricia began her teaching career as a Bikram Certified Instructor in 2002. She teaches with purity, straight from the heart, her classes are demanding, thoughtful and fun. From her early years as a hot yoga devotee, Patricia now teaches and practices many different yoga disciplines and is an E- RYT-500 registered instructor.

Having two studios offering a variety of Hatha yoga was very important in the planning of Riverstone Yoga. While Patricia's teaching is primarily based on Bishnu Ghosh/Bikram yoga lineage, she knows that not everyone is on the same path. "We have different needs at different times. As we progress it takes courage to move outside "your" comfort zone but that's where real benefits lie." Patricia wants students to have the opportunity to stretch mentally and physically. "When you begin to accept changes on the mat you learn to handle life's changes off the mat."

Patricia and her husband Kevin Donohue are thrilled to be able to bring Riverstone Yoga to the village which has been their home for over 20 years.

"When not in class, I am on my bike. Yoga helps me bike better, do everything better, easier, but patience is key, it doesn't happen overnight." - PB
