What is the meaning of Dharma Chakra Yoga School’s name?
Dharma Chakra Yoga School is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School that offers 200 and 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings, as well as workshops and Reiki Trainings.
Like all Chakra, the Dharma Chakra is a wheel. This wheel represents living life fully and with a sense of purpose. The spokes of the Dharma Chakra represent the Eight Limbs of Yoga and the Eightfold Path of Buddhism.
The Dharma Chakra Mudra is thought to balance and integrate all of the chakra qualities into our lives, so that we manifest our life’s highest vision and deepest meaning.
“Study the Science- the steps clearly articulated by those who’ve walked the path and who’ve overcome similar struggles. Be focused, intense, forthright, loving, sober and teachable. Go deep, deeper, go deepest. Then look back. Reach out and hold some hands and share the way!”
Yogarupa Rod Stryker
We’ve received so much from our teachers and wish to share our joy and knowledge from a lifelong practice and study of Yoga

Patricia Krol RYT 500 /E-RYT 200/ YACEP and Reiki Master
Curiosity and a deep love of learning brought Patricia to yoga. She enjoys creative sequencing, combining different styles, and prefers the purity of Hatha Yoga. She has a profound appreciation for Sanskrit, Mantra, and Meditation. Through her practice she’s found flexibility and strength on all levels.
It was on her mat that she discovered her Dharma, teaching. Whether it be in front of a group of High School students, leading a yoga practice, or teaching aspiring yoga teachers; guiding and helping others has become her focus and where she finds Ananda, true joy.
Patricia graduated from Dharma Chakra Yoga School for both her 200 and 300 Hour certifications. Under the tutelage of Nancy Kearon and Eileen Rachelson she gained knowledge, confidence and a sense of community.
This sense of community inspired her to develop opportunities for SEVA, such as Hike and Yoga. Hike and Yoga promotes yoga and enjoyment of the outdoors for the benefit of public natural spaces.
Patricia has continued her studies with Chris Loebsack, Corrine Farell and Beth Spindler.
She is honored to be Assistant Lead Trainer with Dharmachakra Yoga School.
