Patsy, the owner of The Cycling Yogi and a Colorado native, grew up in the mountains of Colorado leading an active lifestyle. She enjoyed lifting weights and Rollerblading almost daily. Working the evening shift at the hospital, her philosophy was to “play” at the beginning of her day when she was energized and to earn a paycheck while she “recovered”. She moved to Denver in 1996 and earned her B.S. in Business Management from the University of Colorado. She is passionate about wellness and nutrition and enjoys studying these topics. Looking for a new workout, she discovered yoga. She attended classes for the exercise and found herself driving home afterward in a state of bliss. With regular practice she experienced less stress and back pain.
After falling in love with cycle/yoga, she began her training in the Fall of 2009 with the intent of opening her own studio to bring yoga to her community. She has since been trained in yoga sculpt and is certified in TRX, Barre, Tabata Bootcamp and a 2nd 200 hr yoga certification.
Patsy enjoys teaching new students and gets excited when a student accomplishes something they didn't think they could do.
