Patty Townsend

👋 I am Patty Townsend

Patty Townsend was among the first wave of teacher-trainers in the U.S. Her background includes decades of serious practice and study of Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa, and Iyengar yoga. She is a long-time student of Tantric philosophy and a life long practitioner of deep inquiry and meditation.

Patty is the founder of Embodyoga®, an inclusive and fully embodied approach to yoga developed out of over 50 years of dedicated practice and more than 20 years of intimate study with her current teacher Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.

Patty's breath and awareness centered approach incorporates a deep understanding of how Awake-Alive-Intelligence expresses through the body-mind shaping our perceptions and experiences.

Patty embodies a strong understanding of yoga philosophy and encourages deep inquiry into all things personal and universal. She is an expressive and joyful teacher and her offerings are the culmination of a lifetime of serious practice and inquiry. Her methods are straightforward and clear. Patty calls this process Embodyoga.
