What to expect in Tracy’s classes: Tracy’s classes are laced with humor, anatomy references, therapeutic movement, self massage, and traditional yoga poses. She emphasizes functional movement, breath, strength/stability/
sustainability, and down-regulating the nervous system. All of Tracy’s sessions start with a call for requests- she then creates a custom sequence on the spot based upon what she hears and sees in the room. Tracy draws on her 25+ years of practicing and teaching yoga, and her ongoing study and fascination with all things movement and wellness related, to inform and inspire her offerings. A participant recently summed up her classes as “effective, creative, and fun!”
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: Tracy started with Iyengar style, which transitioned to a 13 year stint of Ashtanga Vinyasa, followed by Yoga Tune Up® and Viniyoga/therapeutic yoga. She currently studies primarily with Shari Friedrichson and Rod Stryker
Tracy Hodgeman leads The Art of Teaching in the 8 Limbs Grounded Wisdom Teacher Training. This is the place where students will have the opportunity to practice weaving together all the many threads of the training into a more cohesive whole. Tracy is an encouraging and supportive guide. She teaches through example (and from experience) that self–compassion and deep breaths will help get you through those challenging moments of learning new skills (and life). It’s true that one of the best ways to deepen your learning about something is to practice teaching it to someone else. Holding the space for people to find their voices and share their particular unique brilliance is one of Tracy’s greatest joys.
