2011: Patrick and Victoria met through a mutual friend while Patrick was in grad school at UCSD, and Victoria moved to beautiful sunny San Diego later that year.
2012: Victoria dragged Patrick to his first yoga class ever and her first vinyasa yoga class...both were hooked! Yes, we are the couple who holds hands during savasana. ♥
2016: The concept for Vinya was born after always needing to decide where to go and then having to drive to the nearest bar if we wanted to hang out with our friends after yoga. Everything from here on has been done with Vinya in mind...Patrick and Victoria completed yoga teacher training and WSET wine training together that year and even got married during the YTT break!
Today: Patrick continues working a stable job as a Senior Sales Tax Manager (imagine him with Covid hair/beard now), and Victoria teaches yoga and assists with corporate program management while doing everything to push Vinya forward.
Pat-n-Vic are just two people who are all in on making this dream a reality. We have lived in Clairemont for 8 years now and so look forward to being able to hold space for everyone to come together as a community.
