GAYLA: A Retreat for Men Who Love Men

GAYLA is a fun-filled week of escape, discovery and community. At GAYLA, we celebrate our journey as GBTQ men, honoring our unique gifts that announce us to the world as a vibrant force for the common good. Our history has taught us strength, resilience, and to come together as a creative source of inspiration for all humanity.

Centered Presence, Ltd. Founder, Michael Patrick, will teach Kripalu Yoga, present workshops -- including TOUCH PRACTICE -- and provide FREE Pathway of Personal Growth consultation sessions.

Michael Patrick, LMT, KYT, CPC

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Certified Professional Coach and former Scientist, I bring all the gifts of who I am to my work. Driven by the desire to elevate others, my career initially spanned the biotech industry, interdisciplinary research and laboratory safety. Over the past decade, it evolved to wellness and now I work in my own company, Centered Presence, Ltd. As a presenter, my workshops are characterized by elements of touch, intimacy, authenticity, embodiment, grounding, presence, spiritual practice and cultivation of inner awareness, which result in personal growth and empowered movement forward.
