PATTY HOLT         

          She encourages us to perform our best in class by sharing her heart, compassion, and care with every movement. “I love getting to know the clients and I want them to fall in love with taking care of themselves!” Patty currently teaches Barre30, Chair30, Pilates Equipment, and Charged. Patty found her way back to working out after a long break due to work and having her children.  Her doctor recommended that she begin taking time for herself and becoming more active in order to help with health issues she was facing.  In no time, she was feeling great and loved what she was doing.  When she saw that Lacy J was hiring instructors, she jumped at the opportunity.  “I wanted to help others spend time on themselves and have fun and work hard like I did.” Patty’s care for herself, and in turn her family, directly translates to the care she relays to her clients. “I like to see clients surprise themselves – when they’re scared or can’t think they can do it. I love seeing them grow, get stronger, and gain confidence.” One client comments, “she pushes you to be a stronger, better you, all while making it fun and not too serious.”  Patty encourages clients to broaden their fitness horizons by trying different classes and committing to self-care. “I had a hard time getting back to working out after my baby.  Once I tried Patty’s Barre class, I found something I liked and could commit to. Now, I take Barre, Pilates Equipment, and Chair, and am excited about taking care of myself.” Not only does Patty give her heart and support to her clients, she also shares them with the staff. “She is always the first to offer a helping hand and goes above and beyond for the studio as a whole,” says a co-worker. For the future, Patty is excited to continue to have fun and learn at any opportunity. We’re so thankful for Patty’s genuine love for each client and staff, as well as her work.  Our team would not be complete without her contagious smile, devoted spirit, and commitment to getting results!

Jill Hays

My love for yoga began while training for a marathon as I attended a “Yoga for Runners” class in Houston and quickly fell in love with it! My instructor inspired me where I wanted to learn more about the history, challenged me to grow in my own practice and one day be able to share what I have learned with others. After the marathon, I began to branch outside of Vinyasa and started to enjoy hot, Iyengar and Power. 


I’ve always been interested in the more athletic, physical side of yoga.  Before I recently had my son, I taught yoga classes at Odessa CrossFit. The classes provided mobility improvements and gains in flexibility to counter balance with the weight lifting. I loved introducing yoga to the athletes and ultimately observed them as they grew in their practice.


Yoga will always be a passion of mine and having the ability to teach it to others makes it even that much more special.
