About The Instructors: Patty Turnberg and Megan Clone
Patty Turnberg, a lifelong student of dance and aerobics, has always filled her life with the joy of moving. Recently, in recognition and appreciation of the aging process, her focus turned to yoga and she earned her 200 hour Teacher Training Certificate from 8 Limbs Yoga Center in Seattle. Her aim is to guide people of all ages into moving and breathing with intention and joy.
The practice of yoga brings joy into my life. In early 2006, I had been living in Seattle for 8 months when a challenging experience presented itself and I recognized the need for a spiritual practice to keep me balanced. I walked into a little yoga studio in Fremont, took an Anusara Yoga class, felt amazing so kept going back. One year later, answered the call to go deeper into the practice. I joined a teacher training at Seattle Yoga Arts, and in 2009 began teaching in order to share the gifts of yoga and support every person I encounter as they walk the path of self-realization. In 2018, I participated in a Vinyasa Yoga teacher training at Sangha Yoga, allowing me to officially complete my 200-hour certification process and register with Yoga Alliance. The understanding I have gained from all of my yogic experiences allows me to create asana sequences for a variety of bodies and abilities, addressing the needs and interests for every student. While yoga is a contemplative practice, it is also playful and light-hearted. Each class I teach incorporates effort and ease, reflections for and from life, and creates connection to the natural as well as energetic worlds. My approach is an alignment-based, heart-centered flow. I am also a Level II Practitioner in the Usui Holy Fire Reiki system and an Ayurveda Yoga Specialist. Yoga, Ayurveda, and Reiki are the pillars of healing I incorporate into my offerings as well as my own life. Music, travel, and the gathering of good friends rounds out my life both on and off the mat.
