About us

Welcome to Shakti Yoga Center!  My name is Patricia, I’m the owner of this lovely space.  We opened our doors on August 1st, 2016.  It’s been a challenging but rewarding journey.  

Shakti Yoga Center is the response to the call of my heart.  I have not only invested financial resources to make it thrive but most importantly I have infused this space with lots and lots of love and dedication.   I hope you can sense our devotion when you visit us, and that you feel at home.  

My team is a group of trust-worthy teachers who are dedicated yoga practitioners.   We all strive to guide intelligently structured  yoga practices that focuses on the breath, not on perfecting the pose, and that prepare each student to sit in stillness and rejoice in the sweetness of meditation.

We teach yoga as an inclusive path for transformation of Body, Mind & Spirit.   Come get prepared on the mat to succeed and thrive out in the world!

We look forward to have you in class.  Most of our group classes are beginner’s and senior’s friendly.    We also have several opportunities that are prenatal friendly.  

Last, we are equally available to work privately or semi-privately to customize a practice that supports your specific Physical, Emotional & Energetic goals.

Joshua Boucher

Joshua is a 500 Hr RYT Instructor whose passion for teaching extends from a simple theory: Life seeks growth. Growth occurs with presence. Presence is developed with awareness. Awareness is most readily available through physical challenges.

His practice helps him rediscover the vitality he enjoyed as an active youth, and the peace Joshua discovers in overcoming challenges on the mat translates 


Michelle Gutierrez

Michelle “Michie” Gutierrez danced her way through her childhood in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She began teaching Zumba in Dallas, receiving her certification in 2010. As a teacher she was inspired by seeing her students connect with their body via movement. Michie found Zumba/dance to be a powerful practice for setting people free from their hangups about size, shape and skill, and using movement as a form of self love.
