Back to Teachers

Patch Thompson

My yoga journey began in my early 20’s when I was living in Melbourne. Without waves on my doorstep I struggled to find that special place where there was freedom and where the power of nature moved me. I found myself consistently drawn to the South Melbourne studio where I discovered a similar sense of freedom. 

I completed my 200 hours YTT in 2013 and began teaching in my own little studio in Torquay soon after. Every day I pinch myself as I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to continue on this journey and hope to always inspire, support and teach others who are also on this path. 

A few of my favourite things are:

What turns you on about yoga?
It’s always new, every time you step on the mat it’s such a unique experience. The moment that you begin to move, something special happens and from this special place you begin to learn more and grow more…. 

South Melb Cafe:
Che Dre! I love everything French oui oui

Movie and/or Book:
One Day by David Nichols sucked me right in and even made me cry! I read the whole thing in two days!

Ice-Cream Flavour: 
Salted Caramel mmmmmmm

Dogs- they are just so loyal and loving 

Surfing, SUP or anything that involves me being in the ocean 

Hidden Talent:
I was always the kid that could tie a snack in my mouth at school? I’m pretty sure I could still do it!!
