Symposium on Yoga Research

Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health October 2019

I was honored to present the case study that Laura Edoff @_likeabirdthatflew_ and I conducted into the efficacy of remotely delivered yoga therapy.  We found that remote therapy was more effective than in person sessions for a client with limited mobility due to fibromyalgia, chronic pain and fatigue, and other comorbid conditions. Our client benefitted greatly from being able to participate in her health care from her home.  She experienced a decrease in pain and fatigue and as she put it, "What I hadn't anticipated was how much this yoga practice has improved my emotional, mental, and spiritual world as well as physically."  It was so inspiring to be in the presence of these brilliant researchers!

This is a quick and interesting read about the effects silence has on our brains!

About Me

Patience Kaltenbach MEd MS C-IAYT ERYT


I am an experienced educator, with over 25 years of combined experience, teaching in public schools and teaching yoga.  Through my personal yoga practice I realized the tremendous healing powers of yoga.  Yoga enables me to sleep better, enjoy more fulfilling relationships, heal old wounds, and deal with life’s challenges calmly.  As a yoga teacher I wanted to learn more so that I could help my students more effectively, so I sought additional training.  I obtained a  Masters of Science in Yoga Therapy at Maryland University of Integrative Health, and am a Certified Yoga Therapist. I offer my students and clients compassionate care.

Enhance Your Wellness


Yoga Therapy is a client centered practice offered as a complementary therapy to acupuncture, nutrition, physical therapy, psychotherapy, and conventional medical care.  This holistic practice uses movement, breath work, contemplative practices, and philosophy to strengthen and heal our biopsycosocial - spiritual selves.  Listening to your needs, we can work together to create a plan to enhance your wellness.

Calm Your Mind and Strengthen Your Body
