Yogagati School was born out of a deep love and dedication to the practice of yoga and meditation. We don’t consider yoga teaching as work. For us, it’s a way of life, an ongoing journey that never fails to invigorate, inspire and enlighten.
While we focus primarily on providing a comprehensive yoga teacher training, we also offer healing workshops and a range of holistic therapies delivered by seasoned specialists. Our instructors do what they do best, which is to help you discover your true self, motivate you to deepen your practice and knowledge of yoga and guide you to become an inspirational and dynamic yoga instructor. What you learn about yourself along the way is your own unique journey.
Patrycja, our founder, is supported by guest teachers and the Yogagati School team is a light-hearted, fun-loving group of yogis who refuse to take themselves too seriously. When it comes to our students learning, we are, however, very serious about offering a superior yoga teacher training course that instructs participants in the correct techniques, principles and approaches that will lead them on the path to competent yoga teaching.
Held in beautiful, tranquil retreats across the southern islands of Thailand, our Yogagati School yoga teacher training will help you explore your teaching style, guiding you to find your own teaching voice and identity. Contact us today to learn more.
Meet Our Teachers
Patrycja – Yogagati School Founder and Lead Teacher
I fell in love with yoga when I started practicing as a remedy to combat stress. I had held a series of dead-end jobs that never seemed to work out when one day I had a bit of epiphany: working in an office was not for me! Or, as I preferred to describe it back then, “it simply sucked!” I felt burnt out and weighed down by living an unfulfilled life lacking in purpose. I desperately needed to find some peace. A trip to Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world, changed my life forever. It was on my first yoga teacher training course that I felt I had found my true calling. The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
Since that first fateful trip more than 10 years ago, I have taught in countless yoga studios and wellness centers across Europe, the Americas and South East Asia, including world renowned Aman Resorts and Six Senses spas. My teaching has extended to groups, private practices, specialized workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings.
Alongside my yoga teaching certification in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, I am also a qualified Holistic Therapist specializing in Craniosacral Therapy, Kinesiology, Rhythmic Movements Training, Pilates and Energy Psychology. For any students interested in learning about energy healing, I also offer optional Reiki courses levels one and two.
I founded Yogagati to help others find their own sense of belonging through yoga and yoga teaching. My commitment to you is to help you discover that special place of peace on your mat.
What else do I bring to the table during the Yogagati teacher training program? An infectious smile, expertise, kick-ass sequencing, good vibes and free hugs.
