Patsy Mennuti, aka Hella Cougar, is an inspirational spiritual seeker aiming to make life’s arduous journey as light and joyous as possible.

A yoga teacher and transformational coach, Mennuti brings humor,
deep insights, and raw honesty to her writing, coaching, teaching, and speaking engagements.

Patsy launched an entire line of cougar-related merch in 2023. She also sells a 50-page comprehensive e-book Meeting & Dating Older Women: The Manual



Traumatized by the Christian upbringing that told her she was wicked (and not in a funny way), Mennuti hit her lowest point in her teens and 20s, battling depression, suicide ideation, and an eating disorder. Her longing for recovery and happiness led to a passion for personal growth and expansive experiences. Sexual exploration, in particular, has played a major role in freeing her to live a broader version of herself. Terrified of morning sickness, baby snot, and being stuck with only one person for eternity, Mennuti decided as a young person that she would remain single and have a series of relationships throughout her life, which has given her a unique perspective on dating and relationships.


Mennuti earned her Bachelors of Arts in speech and communications from Wake Forest University. Her most significant career was as president/CEO of a nonprofit tied to a waterfront park in downtown Fort Lauderdale. During her tenure, she founded a successful lifestyle magazine for which she also wrote and edited. She has extensive experience executing corporate events across the globe.


Mennuti holds both a 200-hour and 300-hour yoga teacher certification with a concentration and focus in both Ayurveda and recovery as well as a certificate in Yoga of Recovery. Mennuti completed her transformational life coach training with Leadership that Works at the Omega Institute and has studied Energy Medicine Yoga, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Healing Touch.
