Patti Zolnick was introduced to yoga in 1998 and quickly realized the benefits of combining asana, strength, spirituality, devotion and presence. She began her training with OM yoga. Then given her interest in alignment she completed a 500-hr certification at Golden Heart Yoga in Annapolis, MD with Jenny Otto. She continued therapeutic studies with Jenny and is a Body Balance Yoga Therapy Certified Teacher. She is also a registered member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. After moving to Santa Fe in 2008, Patti started her journey with Tias and Surya Little. She completed both their 200 and 500hr programs and is now a Prajna Certified Yoga teacher. Patti continues studies with all her teachers, frequently assisting in yoga teacher trainings. Patti further studies the yoga sutras and chanting with Linda Spackman, who continues to be a mentor. Patti loves alignment, but likes to keep her classes approachable and light. She combines clear, precise cues and an intention to have each student leave feeling wonderful. Outside of the studio, Patti is a fine art photographer and runs workshops integrating yoga with photography in the Santa Fe area. She is also an avid hiker!
