Patrick was born and raised in Blue Point, New York, but has been a resident of Manhattan for the past decade. A former Division 1 college basketball player (and two-time Academic All-American at Columbia University), Patrick found yoga after his playing days were cut short by a string of injuries. While the therapeutic benefits of asana initially drew him to the practice, the tools for exploring his inner landscape kept him coming back for more. He has been fortunate enough to continue exploring all aspects of the practice with Rodney and Colleen in both their 200 and 300 hour trainings. After a few stints in the tech, restaurant and start-up world he has left those paths to a pursue a career exploring the inner workings of our minds and bodies and sharing what he learns with anybody who will listen.
