A Chat with Patty Dobson Yoga
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I offer challenging + dynamic, unique classes that are a blend of various schools and styles, such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, + Anusara. There is an emphasis on building community and you will hear unique music; relaxing ambient music through to upbeat indie + I take song recommendations.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
I am encouraging, light-hearted and extremely upbeat. I cater to all levels, offering individual variations and alignment cues. I take the time to correct people’s poses, regardless of how big class is and aim to push students to their appropriate edge.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Yoga changed and improved my life. I feel such gratitude for the practice, and for the positive community it’s offered me, that I would love to offer the same to others. I wanted to offer fun, intelligent, community-oriented classes, to inspire folks to live healthier, happier lives.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping people to learn more about themselves and realize their own potential, sparking inspiration - I cherish the “a-ha” moments students have during class. I love the sense of community, friendship, and support. They are values deep within me that I hold dear.
