Patty Turnberg

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.

Katie Shaw

Katie discovered her love of yoga over ten years ago in college, and deepened her practice while living in Perth, Australia, where she completed a teaching apprenticeship. She returned home to Seattle in 2014 and completed her yoga teacher training at the Center for Yoga of Seattle. Katie enjoys creating an inclusive and non-judgmental yoga classroom environment, working with students of all levels, and incorporating restoration and mindfulness into her classes. Katie has found a greater mind-body connection through yoga, and loves sharing the practice with her friends, family, and students.

Kristen Domonell

Kristen is a health writer and daydreamer from the east coast who moved to Seattle in search of taller mountains and a more conscious lifestyle.  She first experienced the healing benefits of a regular yoga practice in 2013, during what can be characterized as a millennial quarter-life crisis.  After living in seven homes in six years, she is happy to be living, teaching, working, and learning in the Pacific Northwest.  As a writer, Kristen is a storyteller at heart, and her classes are inspired by daily observations, poetry, music, and science.  She completed her 200-hour teacher training at yogaview in Chicago in 2015 while completing her MS in Health Communication at Northwestern University, and is currently pursuing an additional 300-hour advanced training through Seattle Yoga Arts.  She is drawn to teach because she knows what it feels like to finally find your toes–and yourself–after years of grasping with no luck, and wants to empower others to step into their experience.  You can expect her classes to be challenging, yet accessible, and feature intelligent and safe sequencing with a healthy does of alignment cues and fun.
