Patty Townsend is a lifelong yoga student and teacher. Patty honed her skills with a small and powerful cadre of fellow practitioners in Los Angeles during the 1980s. Sharing excitement and creativity with those who became many of the major teachers of our time, Patty spent decades exploring the vigorous and alignment based systems of contemporary yoga.
In 2000 Patty began studying somatics with her current teacher and mentor, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. Recognizing the profound implications of Bonnie’s work for yoga, Patty dove in with wholehearted focus and determination. In uniting somatics and yoga Patty offers tools for living our full humanity while maintaining a direct and embodied connection to Source. Patty presents this work with clarity, wisdom and humor.
