Meet Our September Student Ambassador: Patrick Rahm

By August 29, 2023No Comments

Our student ambassador for September is Patrick Rahm, who has become a strong and steady presence in our classes since joining our yoga community in the past year. You will find him in many different kinds of classes, often in the evening, when it offers him a release after a long day at work.

“I work in IT and spend the majority of my workday day behind a computer screen,” Patrick said. “In my free time you can find me taking my dog (Mr. Beans) on hikes and out and about in Asheville. I also spend a lot of time riding my cycle throughout mountains and spending time with family and friends.”

HYA: When did you first start practicing?

Patrick: I first tried hot yoga about 15 years ago while visiting a friend in Hawaii. Once I got home from my trip I realized there were no yoga studios where I was living at the time in the Midwest so I found yoga videos on YouTube and would practice randomly. Once I moved to Asheville I found HYA and have never looked back.

HYA: What is your favorite style of yoga?

Patrick: I don’t have a favorite style, what I do like is having a variety of different classes to choose from, which is why I love HYA.

HYA: What is your advice to a new student?

Patrick: The more you go the easier it gets, take breaks as needed during class, don’t eat a big meal before class, and of course stay hydrated!

HYA: What makes you love HYA?

Patrick: I love HYA because of the positive atmosphere, the variety of classes, and all of the amazing instructors.
