Yoga Patch was championed by Caren Lisondra out of Seattle Washington when she had felt an ambition to spread the joy of Yoga to others in 2009. Caren began her Yoga practice many years prior and was blessed with a vision that a Yoga Studio in Kansas City is what she needed to do. Her wonderful husband and special toddler son supported her decision and the idea of Yoga Patch blossomed. She spent several months in Kansas City practicing Yoga in many studios around Kansas City before landing in the Waldo/Brookside area of Kansas City. Key to her vision was a studio that offered yoga for kids, elderly/disabled, and those on very limited budgets. Her passion for these goals has made Yoga Patch what it has become today.

In 2013, Caren and her family were called to move back to Seattle but two of the Yoga Patch instructors agreed to carry on the Yoga Patch creed. Maria Murphy and Kristina Long were both very involved in the evolution of the Yoga Patch from its early roots and share the passion that Caren started with at Yoga Patch in 2009. Maria is native to Kansas City and mother of five wonderful people whose soothing voice and gentle instruction has been a core element of her teaching style for many students. She can give you as much of a workout as you need and make you feel translucent at the same time. Kristina Long comes to Yoga Patch from Memphis Tennessee and is the mother of two beautiful kids. Kristina is an extremely talented Yoga practitioner who will not only test her students’ inner mindfulness but just how much water can drip from human body during a flow class and still call it fun. Together, along with an incredible team of teachers, they offer you a special opportunity to join our community of friends at Yoga Patch in Kansas City.

Maria Murphy

Maria Murphy

Instructor

Maria, Studio Owner, had been practicing yoga for over 10 years when she felt a calling to teach in 2008 and then became certified 2009. She is so appreciative of her certificate for RYT 230 hours of teacher training in the practice of Iyengar and Restorative from The Yoga School of Therapeutics that made such a wonderful change in her life. Before becoming owner of the Yoga Patch in 2013, Maria taught Restorative, Hatha, Stress Relief, Vinyasa, and Kids Yoga at the Yoga Patch for 4 years and will always be grateful for the opportunities and relationships that Yoga Patch in Waldo has brought to her journey. She holds certificates in Yoga Fit Level One and Two, Prenatal/Postnatal, Kids Yoga, Reflexology and Meditation. She has participated in workshops targeting anatomy, neck and shoulders, the art of Svasana, and has had the pleasure of studying with Judith Lasater.. Although her certificates and workshops have targeted areas of teaching that have improved her professionally, Maria enjoys a blend of styles of Yoga that bring her closer to that better awareness and inner peace. It is her open mind and heart that allows her to hold such a peaceful temperament and gentle teaching style.

Maria is also a mother of five beautiful children…two of whom she was blessed to receive through adoption, two through natural childbirth, and one that involved surgery…ouch. When she is not teaching yoga, she is probably driving to and from practices, games, recitals, conferences, and nonstop errands. In her spare time, she is also a potter, artist, and Zumba lover. With so much going on, yoga is about the inner change and awareness for Maria. Maria has found that she must find the time to put everything else on hold, connect to herself and become more in tune with her body, mind, and spiritual being. The heightened awareness she experiences through Yoga practice is what continues to draw her to the Yoga mat. Her passion is to share that awareness with you.

Rachel Meran

Rachel Meran

Instructor

Rachel discovered a love for yoga over a decade ago and, throughout the years she has allowed the practice to shape her in ways that have no comparison. During her classes, Rachel puts an emphasis on linking breath with motion as well as honoring personal limits. In her classes you will find challenge and acceptance for wherever you are in your practice. She believes yoga is a journey that involves many side roads, step backs and breakthroughs, but never has a clearly defined destination.

Danika Hanson

Danika Hanson

Instructor

Danika’s first yoga experience occurred at a Bikram studio in Colorado, but her passion for yoga grew here in Kansas City, specifically at Yoga Patch… no pun intended.
Initially her practice focused on the physical aspects of yoga asanas, but with more practice a deeper search for spirituality and serenity came. Danika has found an energetic appreciation for meditation and the benefits it brings to her life, on and off of, her yoga mat. Because of this, she likes to incorporate this in her yoga classes, wanting her students to find their own Inner Light. She hopes her students challenge themselves in their yoga practice while at the same time relax and have fun! Danika is grateful to be included in Kansas City’s beautiful yoga community.

Danelle Drury

Danelle Drury

Instructor

Danelle has been doing yoga for about ten years. It started out as just a physical workout, to improve strength, balance, flexibility – – but almost without her noticing, it grew into a spiritual journey too, and she finds yoga permeating every aspect of life. It helps her be better version of herself while, at the same time, helping her discover and appreciate who that really is. She loves to share her knowledge, passion and skill with her students. She completed her training throughKC Fitness Link and has been teaching in various studios and businesses around Kansas City for the past four years. When she is not teaching yoga, she is an actress, admin assistant and an English tutor. She also sells and teaches about DoTerra Essential Oils.
Her favorite yoga quote: “All our bones, flesh, fibers, ligaments, joints, senses, mind and intelligence are harnessed. In this way, the practice of asana, performed with all elements of our being, awakens and sharpens intelligence, until it is integrated with our senses, our mind, our memory, our consciousness and our soul.”
She loves how yoga teaches us to be in the moment, day by day, accepting where we are just now and knowing that, “if you learn a lot of little things, one day you end up knowing a big thing.” B.K.S. Inyengar.

Grace Duckworth

Grace Duckworth

Instructor

Yoga has transformed my life. I have gone from anxiety stricken and depressed (literally losing my hair) to having a deep appreciation for everything that is given to me in this life. In the past I was unhealthy – although to many others I appeared to be the spitting image of physical health – I overworked and deprived my body of true nutrition as I went back and forth with eating disorders and was cruel to my body. The path of yoga has helped me to love myself, honor my body and find joy in everything I do.
One of my proudest accomplishments was learning to truly listen to and understand my body. Once I began to approach health with a positive mindset rather than pushing myself past the limits of what healthy should be, positive changes began to happen within all other aspects of my life. Good choices turned into common sense. It was no longer difficult to understand what I needed to do in order to help myself physically, mentally and spiritually. I will forever be grateful to yoga and what it has done for me. That incredible change is what inspired me to help others make that same transformation within themselves. My journey to help spread knowledge and love begins on the mat within my classes and online at my website: www.fitbodyclearmind.com – Grace Duckworth.

Laura Kinney

Laura has been practicing yoga since 2006, and is a 200-HR Registered Yoga Teacher. Laura loves to practice yoga because linking breath and movement, and the physical challenge of the practice, makes her feel good, inside and out. She enjoys the time on the mat, but the best part is the feeling extends beyond the mat. With a consistent practice, Laura feels more open physically, and is better able to live from the heart and be more positive. As a yoga teacher, Laura hopes to bring this same feeling to her students, and to bring out love and light in each person and throughout the community.

Brandon Vogt

Brandon Vogt

Instructor

Brandon started practicing Yoga around 3 years ago. When he first started, it became very obvious that this was something that he should be doing as much as possible. Brandon just recently completed his 200 hour Yoga training in 2015 and started teaching right away. His philosophy when practicing and teaching is to be present and playful. “I find the more present I am in each pose, the more my body gets out of the pose”. ” I also try to maintain a playful attitude towards the practice. This allows me to accept where I am physically which creates space for growth.” Brandon teaches Yoga Basics and Mixed Level Flow classes. Brandon is also a musician and enjoys performing guitar pieces during Savasana for his classes.

Amanda’s classes are community based – the young and young at heart are included, as are those that are well established on the wellness journey and those just beginning their wellness journey. Classes are friendly (and sometimes chatty) and place a big emphasis on breathing meditations, and movements that will make your body feel more comfortable, wherever you are! In her free time, Amanda enjoys gardening, farmers markets, finding the best cup of coffee, and exploring the city with her child.

Joe McClernon

Joe McClernon

Instructor

Joe has been practicing yoga since 2009, shortly after Yoga Patch opened. As with many devoted practitioners of yoga, the physical aspects of Yoga were the initial attraction. A lifelong exercise lover, it was apparent that as the years were piling up a change was needed in his approach to exercise. Once he became a regular in the Yoga Patch classes, he learned that there was so much more to Yoga. Yoga totally pulled together a lot of the “loose strings” of Joe’s life. Now the study of all aspects of Yoga is a passion for Joe and life has never been better! As a teacher, Joe’s main areas of interest are making Yoga available to people of all ages and fitness levels. So many people come to Yoga looking for something to help them on their life’s journey only to be put off by difficulty or embarrassment with the physical aspects of the practice. His goal is to make everyone comfortable in class and help them understand that the only “wrong way” to do a pose is one that is potentially harmful to the student. Everyone can find the right asanas for them and the right forms of those asanas.

Melodee Reigel

Instructor

Over the past few years I had done numerous 5Ks, 10Ks, sprint triathalons and duathalons. Following a skydiving injury, Yoga played a big role in overcoming my limitations and getting back on track. Because of that, I want to help others in the same manner it helped me. Within months of taking my first yoga class I started attending at KCFitnessLink, School of Yoga, Massage, Nutrition and Holistic Health. Best decision I ever made. Life changing!
I believe that athletes come in all shapes, sizes and ages and I encourage those new to fitness to remember that we were all there once so not to let that deter you from the feel good stuff working out can offer. I welcome those interested in trying group fitness to join me regardless of experience level as I love to introduce newbies to these fitness and watch their abilities and self-confidence grow.

This course is designed for Sthira Sukham yoga practioners that are interested in advancing their practice further. The updated series builds upon the grounding work from the “Foundation Flow” and challenges the body and mind to work together in a way that promotes a sense of lightness and deep strength from within. Similar to previous classes, you can expect regularity in sequence centered around anatomical form, breath work and more challenging meditation.

Month 1: focus on (new) alignment of postures, building stamina, memorization, some workshops and moderate meditation.
Month 2: strong focus on personal practice, increase in workshops and strong meditation.
*Must have completed “Foundation Flow” before attending “Lear to Lift”

Pricing is $250 for course or $133 per month
Early bird discount: $200 – must sign up by July 31
