For Patty, mediation is a mutual route – a form of mutual exchange and growing. Shared stories, experiences, discoveries. Her knowledge and understanding of the body are nurtured by her artistic practice as well as by her teaching in a variety of institutions. With a background in diverse improvisation methods, somatic practices, contemporary dance techniques and yoga she continually evolves and contextualizes her own teaching methods. Intuitive knowledge becoming spatially embodied. Refining abilities of anatomical and spatial awareness, Patty´s classes and workshops facilitate space for individual vision, play and collective experience.
