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.
Rachel began practicing yoga in 2013 when her younger brother was hospitalized with stage-four brain cancer. When he asked for bodywork, that was a jumping off point for Rachel. Focusing on her breath helped ground her and remind her to live in the present.
Rachel began teaching in 2014 and has a 200RYT certification through Yoga Alliance. She is also a certified Thai bodyworker and Reiki Master. Currently, she is working on an advanced bodywork certification at Ankrum Institute and a massage license, both of which she expects to complete in 2019.
Because of her love of the outdoors, Rachel teaches classes at Turkey Mountain on Sundays, at 7 p.m., when weather appropriate (usually May–October). She also teaches hot vinyasa, hot 60, yin, and gentle/restorative classes. In her classes, emphasis on the breath for a whole mind-body experience is paramount.
