Patty Adams:                                                (contact@) 

I am a fat cis white queer woman, long-time activist and yoga teacher/practitioner. I offer yoga as a tool for remembering wholeness, decolonizing our bodies/minds/hearts, and experiencing true freedom.

I offer several donation-based, all-level yoga classes in Durham, including Yoga for Queers and Misfits which I started in 2010. I also offer InQlusive Yoga, which is full of lots of queers and misfits, but is an open class for every body.

My self-organized classes are all donation-based; my studio classes offer special rates and guest options – contact me directly to figure out how to make the studio classes more accessible.

elliott turnbull:

Sessions focus on integrative relaxation, re-patterning neuromuscular habits, re-patterning thoughts and emotional patterns, and embracing your precious impermanent life. Our practice together may include stillness, yoga asanas(postures), breathing practices, mindfulness and awareness exercises, drawing, writing, reading, speaking, listening, and/or postural and gestural play with gravity, levity, furniture, walls, props, and other creative equipment…
There is no physical limit to accessing yoga. If you have a body, waves of breath, and a pumping heart, you can do this! I have worked with 4-day-old infants, 90-year-old matriarchs, and nearly everything in between. I can help you with: gender journeying; identity, expression, and behavior; creative expression with artistic discipline; depression, self-harming, and suicide ideation; developmental movement repatterning; sensory processing and integration; PTSR (post-traumatic stress response); event, recurrent, and institutional/cultural trauma; chronic pain; surgery prep, healing, and re-patterning – to name a few specifics… Workshops can be uniquely designed for particular working groups and/or collegial constellations. (past examples: school teachers, theatre cast & crew, medical healthcare teams, grief support, trauma aware yoga teaching, leadership mindfulness…)Please contact me to discuss sliding scale options.
