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.
Patricia Rodriguez-Lozano began her wellness career as a personal trainer—then she found hot yoga. She loved the healing aspects of the practice and hasn’t stopped in 20 years.
Patricia teaches gentle and yin restorative yoga. Her teaching style works to meet Patanjali’s asana description which is “steady and easy” - the only two words for asana practice in the yoga sutras. She offers a lot of variety in movement in her classes, so that the body moves in new directions, and works to engage the breath and help her students reach heightened awareness. Leaning towards meditative yin style, Patricia believes that if “we know our breath and our limits, when we go to our yang style—like vinyasa flow and Bikram—we’re prepared.”
Patricia learned yoga fundamentals through Svraroopa Yoga Rama Berch and has a 200-hour certification from Living Yoga program. She is close to a fully documented 500-hour certification.
