Kelly Patterson


After many years of sitting meditation, Kelly was drawn to yoga in her 20’s as a form of moving meditation. Falling in love with the lucidity she felt on the mat, she enrolled in the Nataraja School of Yoga and received her 200 hour certification in 2011. Training in the Iyengar tradition gave her great appreciation for precise language and taught her the import of an alignment specific practice; thus allowing her students to feel held and safe to explore while building a sustainable foundation.

She brings to class her love of anatomy, breathwork and the perspective that our yoga mat can be an entry point to the higher infinite nature; a portal where we access insight on how to spaciously navigating the complex human experience.

Kelly is a Certified Cranio-Sacral and Polarity Therapist, Holistic Health Coach and Reiki Master Teacher. She is also a Conscious Channel and Licensed Massage Therapist. She has true passion for sharing the transformational potential of yoga and when not on the mat, you can find Kelly tending her honeybees and flower gardens or running on Portland’s beautiful trails.
