What is Ruach™?

Ruach™ is an international, interdenominational scripture-inspired movement focused on breathing and motion. Each session is designed to improve mind-body-spirit connection by building on strength, stamina, flexibility, agility, focus and mindfulness. Ruach™ is created, researched and developed by Patch Wetzel and is the interwoven principles of yoga juxtaposed to scripture.

Why Ruach™?

Patch Wetzel has been practicing yoga since 2009, and as of October 2015, finally her instructor training certification from YogaFit International in Las Vegas. She has since taught her yoga practice and discipline in Asia (Indonesia, Cambodia, Philippines, Japan and Korea) and Europe (Austria, France and Switzerland). She is an International Chaplain of Marketplace Ministries is working on her PhD in Humane Letters from CICA (Canadian Institute of Chaplain Ambassadors). She is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a BA in International Humanities and Ecole de Roches in Crans-Montana, Valais Switzerland with a degree in International Hospitality Management. She is the founder and president of PatchWorks Ministries in Johnstown, Ohio.

Having battled weight issues all her life, and as an Asian who felt big and clumsy, she was at her wit’s end to find “something” to help her maintain a healthier weight and a much better lifestyle. What began as a curiosity became a love of paired movement and breathing, an outlet for stress, a way to improve balance and focus through praise and worship; and a passion to share this love with others. She is currently developing what she learned in her yoga discipline and incorporating that with scripture to create her “Legacy Living” and “Perspective Thinking” series with her ministry.

She is currently searching for individuals who want to be trained and certified in the teaching, philosophy and doctrine of Ruach™ so that they, too, can help others in the health and fitness goals, while fulfilling the scripture call of ministry and spreading the love of God through praise and worship.

Teacher Training begins is June 2017 in choice cities in the US and Europe. Coming to Asia in 2018.
