Patrick Nolan began practicing yoga in his hometown of Key West in 1997. Along with R. Sharath Jois, Patrick’s teachers include Kino Macgregor, Tim Feldmann, Greg Nardi, and Angelique Sandas. Patrick has made multiple trips to Mysore, India to study with R. Sharath Jois, and in 2013, Patrick received Mr. Jois’s blessing to teach the Ashtanga method with Level 2 Authorization. Before becoming a full-time practitioner and teacher of yoga, Patrick was also an elite athlete, competing nationally and internationally in Olympic sport taekwondo. He retired from competition in 2009.
As a teacher Patrick continuously strives to keep a proper balance between firmness and compassion, gravity and humor, and respect for tradition while remaining down to earth. He feels a strong sense of duty to pass on the knowledge that has had such a profoundly positive effect on his life.
