Tracy, a Mountain girl turned Texan, began working in the fitness realm in 1997 as the director of a children's gymnastics center. In 2001, she moved on to program directing for a local Pilates Studio where she was reintroduced to Yoga, inspiring her to learn more. Shortly thereafter, she completed her Hatha certification at the 200 hour level through Yoga Yoga TT in Austin and became registered through The Yoga Alliance, RYT. After teaching for a bit, and becoming a mother, Tracy found it a natural next step to add Pre and Postnatal Yoga training to her resume and completed her training with Leslie Lytle in 2005.
Tracy's fun-loving teaching style is that of rhythm and flow, influenced greatly by the teachings of B. K. S. Iyengar, Shiva Rea, Ana Forrest & Kathryn Budig. Tracy encourages her students to fluidly move through Vinyasa, while deepening postures and finding ease through the effort. Tracy looks to her students for inspiration, personalizing each class she teaches. Tracy’s playlists are a bit eclectic, often you’ll hear Yaz, Krishna Das, Toto and the Dixie Chicks within the same hour…singing along is always encouraged!
Tracy, her husband, two boys, daughter and puppy dogs all love life in Austin. She credits Yoga with giving her the energy, balance, and peace to keep up with all of them.
