Meet the Teachers
Dr. Pat Loughlin came to the Berkshires because of her love of the mountains, nature, and Yoga. As a Pastor of the United Methodist Church, she practiced Yoga faithfully to deal with the challenges of work. Coming to Kripalu for a weekend introduced her the area's supportive environment for Yoga. Seeing the connection between Yoga's goal of wholeness and unity and pastoral work she began training at Yoga Center Amherst in Embodyoga@ with Patty Townsend, founder, Corinne Matthews, and other amazing teachers completing the YTT-200 hour certification.“Embodyoga@ fuses the emergent wisdom of Body- Mind Centering, developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, with Hatha Yoga practices and Indian philosophy.” It is a melding of the best of the ancient wisdom of India that has brought us Yoga, and the Body-Mind Centering of our most recent physiological discoveries. It’s Yoga, fromthe inside out!!!
