Hello Sweet Friend. I am Patti Jo, PJ for short. Welcome! As a warrior of PTS, my life's purpose grew organically through my own personal journey of blessings disguised as pain, loss, trauma, low self-esteem, panic attacks, anxiety and illness. Slowly, through a consistent daily practice of rooted rituals within Yoga and Ayurveda, I found healing, growth and truth.  


In 2006, The Empty Nest @ Mindful Living, a one-of-a-kind sanctuary nestled in the small town of Two Rivers, WI, sprouted into being.  It is my heart and soul, a community of celebration, acceptance and love.  It is sacred space that offers a deeper experience and connection to the softer, more nurturing side of yoga. Rooted in its sister science, Ayurveda is the ancient science that naturally realigns individuals with their true nature.  Mindful Living is a soulfully simple lifestyle that promotes health, happiness & wholeness.  Living in sync with the heart beat of mama nature and our own true nature is magical.


The greatest truths I have learned along the way are:  1) we must slow down to find our way; 2) what works for one does not work for all; 3) we must become best friends with yourself; 4) self care is non-negotiable and 5) we all deserve to be seen, heard and loved. 

To this day, I am deeply rooted in my practice and teach exclusively from my heart and personal experience to provide all with the most authentic experience possible which organically gives them the strength and courage to face their own "blessings in disguise" and to fly.

In Love & Light

Ayurvedic Yoga Lifestyle Coach,

Reiki Master & Intuitive Guide

"I have been attending Patti Jo’s classes for several years now. Her class size is small so it feels more personal. I really enjoy the simplistic poses and the strength building. She has taught me so much about being kind, simplicity, acceptance, letting go, and living a yogic lifestyle. I am calmer and more relaxed since taking her classes. She truly cares about her students and takes them on a wonderful journey whether it’s on the beach, in a studio or virtually. I look forward to seeing her each week."
