Meet Down Dog Yoga Owner Patty Ivey

General   •   January 23, 2020

Patty Ivey didn’t find yoga, yoga found her.

An avid marathon runner and biker, Patty was suddenly faced with a knee injury that would require surgery and possibly months of rehabilitation. She hated yoga, but reluctantly gave in to her doctor’s recommendation to take a class — willing to do whatever it took to get back to running.

In this week’s byGeorge blog, the former bakery owner and massage therapist shares the moment inside a hot yoga studio 18 years ago that changed her life forever, how her Georgetown studio, Down Dog Yoga, was at the forefront of a national culture shift that drew the likes of Russell Crowe, and why a ‘brutal’ three-year courtroom drama unveiled a greater purpose.
