8 Limbs is pleased to reintroduce monthly Teacher Profiles to help you to know and learn from the amazing group of 8 Limbs Yoga Teachers. This month we profile Tracy Hodgeman,who has been practicing yoga for over twenty years. Tracy will lead the Thanksgiving Benefit Class at West Seattle this year to benefit Transitional Resources, a local non-profit whose programs offer supportive opportunities for those with the most serious forms of mental illness to succeed and experience recovery.
Where do you teach? Phinney Ridge, West Seattle
Hobbies/interests: I love music, animals, crafts, my ukelele, nature, and people of all sorts.
What non-yoga book are you reading/did you recently read? The Wise Heart by Jack Kornfield (does this count as non-yoga 🙂
Yoga book you recommend: Meditation for the Love of It by Sally Kempton
Favorite yoga practice/pose and why: Spontaneous slow flow that focuses on breath and inner feeling/awareness and play, because that is what feeds my soul and supports my body.
One secret that helps you stay healthy: Don’t be too serious/stuck/ sure. And neti before pranayama…
Currently inspired by: My new job as a Yoga Teacher Training instructor and my daily meditation/mindfulness practice and learning new things.
Anything you want to share with our community? I am so honored to be a part of 8 Limbs and I feel so supported and encouraged and at home here. I am grateful for all of the other teachers and all of the students and all of the people behind the scenes keeping the wheels turning. Thank you all!
Favorite recipe? Morning cereal of amaranth, Turkish apricots, local fresh fruit, a shot of maple syrup and flax seed oil and milk of
your choice, topped w/a handful of freshly toasted nuts. YUM!!!
