Reid started practicing Yoga in 2008 as a way to stay limber during the winter. He soon learned that there was so much more to Yoga than just stretching in different animal poses. As he progressed in his practice, he discovered what Yoga could do for his mind, body and soul and wanted to teach others in the hope that they might discover the same.
In 2012 he studied with Diana Vitantonio to obtain his 200-hour certification, but also considers Natalie Lorber and Molly Dindia two instrumental teachers for him.
“In the laboratory I study how materials flow. On my mat I study how the body, mind, spirit and energy flow.”
Reid Patterson instructs the following:
Hour of Power Yoga
This is a 60-minute Power Vinyasa class. Be prepared to break a sweat as the studio is set to 90 degrees. The deeper your connection of movement and breath becomes, the more the heat begins to build inside you as opposed to around you; leaving you fully charged and present in each pose. Practicing in a heated environment increases your flexibility as it opens and loosens your muscles. Bring a towel and water bottle in with you, both of which we have available for sale at the studio
*The heat is not for everyone and can be overwhelming at times/upon your first visit. Listen to your body! Exit the class at any time if need be and a desk yogi will be there if you need anything.
Suitable for intermediate yogis; some prior yoga experience recommended. / Balancing classes: Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Deep Stretch Vinyasa
