About Patty

At home in the body

Patty Brockley

Through my work, I aim to help people influence their own experience by strengthening the connections between the mind, body, and spirit. Yoga Therapy endeavors to develop a set of tools/techniques that will help build resources for the everyday life. 

For over thirty years, I have worked in the wellness industry. First as a nurse in ICU/CCU, then as the Director of the Freestanding Marin Birth/Wellness Center and finally as a Nurse Practitioner for Marin public health clinics and as a certified yoga therapist. Additionally, I have been practicing Integrated Medicine and as a Clinical Western herbalist since 1995. 

Currently, I specialize in Somatic Yoga Therapy which helps my patients sense into their bodies and learn to quiet their minds from within themselves. Mindfulness and meditation are essential aspects of the Somatic practice and with an individualized approach they learn to develop these mental accomplishments. I view myself as a guide, facilitating the internal journey of my clients towards a deeper sense of self understanding and independence. To me, there is nothing more valuable than seeing a person empower themselves by finding their inner strength, wisdom and happiness.

Thomas Keating:

“Anything less than a contemplative perspective on life is an almost certain program for unhappiness.”

Patty’s Yoga Class is like coming home to your body and breath. Her gentle instructions are tailored to what I need to feel more grounded and happy.

Patty Brockley personally coached my 9th grade daughter in mountain biking skills and ride training. She guided my daughter up and down the hills of Marin and trails near and far. Skills training, safety training, strength training and endurance training were just a part of what Patty’s work was about. This was a great physical experience for my daughter and helped her get in shape. In addition, Patty is a great role model! She is great at confidence building and helped my daughter improve her skills and confidence in mountain biking and in life!
