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.
Hugh Flannery began his yogic journey in 2001 at yogaQuest after years of hard labor. He felt his body was deteriorating and, he jokes, that he was pulling muscles even getting out of bed. After four years of regular practice, he became certified as a Bikram instructor in fall 2005 and began teaching. He then studied for seven consecutive years with Jimmy Barkan.
Hugh wants to reach anyone who wants to practice. “A person does not have to be 'in shape' to begin a yoga practice” he says. “Yoga is for everybody. I’d be happy to have a room full of people who don’t know what they’re doing, as much as a room full of longtime practitioners.”
He has an ERYT200 certification and teaches Hot 90, Hot 60, and Barkan-method vinyasa.
