Ms. Patton - Wyatt has practiced yoga for 15 years and has been teaching classes for 7 years. She is RYT200 certified (meaning that she has completed at least 200 classroom hours in training). Ms. Patton - Wyatt teaches Vinyasa flow yoga. Currently she teaches classes at Stronghold Gym on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings at the Newberry Opera House.

The number of Americans who practice yoga has increased by nearly 30 percent in the past four years, according to the latest Yoga in America study, produced by Yoga Journal. Their 2008 survey accounted for 15.8 million yoga practitioners, but the latest figure shows that 20.4 million Americans are now practicing -- about 8.7 percent of U.S. adults.
