I have practiced restorative yoga at several yoga studios. However, Patricia at Yoga Quest is an outstanding instructor. She is an observer of all her participants and individually provides mindful, well educated and informative praxis. Patricia combines mind-body practice to each pose and provides visuals and sounds to encourage a most meaningful and restorative experience.
The studio itself is clean, friendly and inviting. I highly recommend yogaQuest to anyone seeking a meaningful and mindful experience, which combines mind body awareness.
Debra is a full-time yoga teacher and holds a ERYT200 certification in iyengar yoga, which focuses on alignment, strength in holding the poses, and breath.
Besides focusing on core strength in her classes, Debra also leads poses that involve dynamic stretching to increase circulation and healing, and resistance stretching to increase strength and improve flexibility—a return to her background in ballet.
“I don’t just lead,” she says. “I tell people what’s happening physically within their bodies because I love the science behind yoga. How breath, twists, and turns massage and bring health to the internal organs. It’s more than just learning the poses. The ‘why’ gives you incentive to do it.”
Debra teaches heated vinyasa flow, a blend of vinyasa and iyengar poses, and not-heated core strength and stretch classes.
