About Patty

Patty Dougherty moved back to Knoxville in 2010 after spending 10 years in Los Angeles studying and practicing yoga and yogic philosophy. A 2009 graduate of Cloud Nine Yoga in California, her specialties include Gentle Yoga and Restorative Yoga. Patty studied anatomy and Yoga Basics under Simone Market, a student of Erich Shiffmann, and Iyengar Yoga with Michael Rucculo of Life Yoga Center both in Hermosa Beach, California. Patty is certified in Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky, Director of Restorative Yoga with Yoga Works.

She is as gentle and kind in the classroom as she learned to be with herself and her own body. Patty’s goal is to help open the body and find space to breathe and to move – enabling the opportunity for radiant physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Patty is currently leading classes at her studios: BalancedYouStudios, and Breezeway Yoga Studio.

  1. Hi Patty! I hope this gets to you! Wow moment of fate destiny, but I met you in my store – bearden decorating center -the other day (I owe you a roller cover). Looking for stuff to do on a very very rare cold gloomy 2 day weekend. Always wanted to do yoga and saw your name here. Really bad knee after 2 surgeries in last year from glorious ski trip. Definitely beginner but athletic. Need love trust patience and compassion, but I’m also tough. There was a trustworthiness in your eyes and I felt an energy… Can you help me? Email or call at 865-300-0592. I hope it works and your schedule is open! Peace 🙂

  2. You look beautiful and well. I wish you were closer so I could be a full time student Love and Hugs! And Happy Belated B-day!

  3. Patty, very exciting! Wish we were closer to enjoy your classes, I bet they are great! Also thanks for the sweet card, we are both really excited about the house. You will have to come visit our “cabin in the woods” (eek…I think that is the name of a scary movie that is out right now).

    Anyways, looking forward to meeting you someday soon and good luck with everything!
