Patti Gagne

I took my first yoga class in 1994, and began the study of Iyengar yoga in 1998. I was attracted to the comprehensiveness of the program, the clarity of instruction, and therapeutic applications. The more I learned, the more I realized there was to know.

In 2004 I began the Austin Yoga Institute teacher training with Peggy Kelley and continue my teacher training to better my teaching skills in the Iyengar instruction method. I’ve also studied with other senior Iyengar instructors, including Gabriella Giubilaro and Ramanand Patel.
