Yoga in the Lowlands is a small studio set in a beautiful valley just one mile south of Barneveld. Our yoga classes are for people of all levels of experience, fitness and ability. Our body friendly yoga classes emphasize precise alignment, yet compassionate at the same time, using props such as blankets, blocks and straps to meet your body where it is and help you get maximum results in a minimum time.

We specialize in Svaroopa® Yoga.  Svaroopa® means “your own divine essence.” It is based on “Core Release” spinal decompression to create an inner opening from tail to top. This inner opening gives you stamina and vitality through releasing deep tensions and helping you find your true Self!

Purnata is Patty’s sanskrit name, meaning “fullness”. It was given to her by Swami Nirmalananda, her Guru. Swami says it represents “being in a state of fullness on the inside."  Purnata has gained that fullness on her path in Svaroopa® Yoga.

Purnata and her husband, Michael, live next to the yoga studio, which Michael built.  They have 2 lovely daughters, a  handsome son and wonderful daughter-in-law.  We are very excited to announce the arrival of our first grand-daughter, Opal Irene. She is a very beautiful baby girl and a very happy baby too! We are so blessed!

And let's not forget Schatzli the dog, protector and mascot of Yoga in the Lowlands!
