Pat’s training methods are derived from the disciplines of exercise science, physical therapy, and yoga. His clinical work as a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Kwan Yin Healing Arts Center East and his background as a former Division I collegiate baseball athlete at the University of Portland guide his approach. Pat is currently a human anatomy professor at the University of Portland and yoga instructor at Root Whole Body in Portland, OR. He also spent 2 years working with the University of Oregon Ducks track and field and cross country teams. Training sessions include therapeutic and strength-building sequences utilizing kettle bells, barbell work, asana (yoga posture) and body weight exercise. Sessions are beneficial for recreational movers and athletes alike. He wants to thank Michael McMahon of Portland’s Moving Mountain Institute for an ongoing collaboration that deepens a creative appreciation for connective anatomy and the art of healing. Lastly, he feels so fortunate to continually have the opportunity to study with Sarah Robinette, a student and ambassador of the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar.
