Patrick De Vlesschauwer

A wise and curious psychologist and book author, Patrick is a born listener and an open soul. As a blissfully happy seeker, we think he’s well on his way to figuring out the meaning of life. His dream is to contribute to an emotionally-balanced, clear-minded, open-hearted society through the message of yoga.


In his yoga teaching, Patrick combines his lifelong experience in psychology and yoga into Yoga Psychology Therapy. He recognises the power of the ancient tools and insights of yoga as a complement to the young scientific insights of the psychology tradition.

In psychology, he specialised in the field of emotions and health, and this led him to the yogic path. He is inspired by the dialogue between the great empirical traditions of East and West, and it is the insight of each that he brings to all his work.

He studied Consciousness at the Graduate Institute of New York and he authored a well-reviewed book "De Ultieme Uitdaging" (The Ultimate Challenge) about investigating the healthy mind. He is currently teaching in Ghent and is one of the main teachers at the Upward Spiral Program in India.
