Patricia Maruko

Patricia took her first yoga class more than 20 years ago. She realized she needed something to offset the repetitive stress pain she was experiencing as a dental hygienist.

Being a perpetual student was her plan. Then in 2010 she received her 200-hour teacher training from Downtown Yoga Advanced Studies Program.

This led to teacher certifications for paddle board yoga from BOGA Yoga - 2013, yoga therapy ball from Yoga Tune Up - 2015, restorative yoga from Namaste Yoga Berkeley - 2017.

Teaching was not her original goal, however she has discovered the joy of teaching, especially
restorative yoga.

Patricia Maruko instructs the following:
  • Sunrise Yoga (restorative)
  • Practice along with one of our senior teachers. This class is for the student who wants to challenge himself or herself by experiencing the quiet-stillness that comes as a result of holding more challenging poses for longer periods of time. Inversions are an integral part of this practice. Get up and get the day going. This 6:00 a.m. class is a perfect way to stretch and wake up.

  • Restorative Yoga
  • A healing practice of supportive and restorative poses, which relieve tension and stress throughout the body. Beginners welcome!
