Uma Devi (Patty O’Keefe) has been teaching gentle yoga at Kashi Atlanta since 2011. Her teaching style is approachable and welcoming. She shows-up with her own limitations and imperfections and teaches anyway. It is her hope that her beginner’s approach and enthusiasm for the process will encourage students to feel comfortable with their own beginnings and alive to their own inner experience. In Uma Devi’s classes the focus is on the spine, the breath, and postural alignment. The practice is gentle yet it is also deep. The student will cultivate the ability to call upon imagination, sense of gratitude, focused attention and the energy of their own bodies to move toward a greater inner awareness.
