Upon graduation from Northwestern University, Patti began working in the theater in Chicago and worked as an actress/singer/dancer for many years. She began singing with society orchestras and eventually formed my own band and musical services company, Patti Lupo Music. Patti began studying yoga in 1999 and completed her teacher training with Suddha Weixler at the Chicago Yoga Center in 2002. She is continually updating her training and has taken workshops with John Friend (including the 2008 Grand Gathering in Estes Park, CO), Seane Corn, Sianna Sherman, David Swenson and others. Patti loves teaching both beginners and advanced students and believe that the healing effects of yoga are profound and can help students of all ages, shapes and sizes. Her style is playful, warm and nurturing and she encourages a strong physical practice emphasizing breath and alignment.
