Hello, I'm Tracy and I'm delighted to meet you! My life's mission is to help people occupy their bodies, hearts, and minds with curiosity and compassion. I have a passion for mindful movement and embodiment practices and think some of the most magical places on earth are the yoga mat and dance floor. I consider these special spots "living laboratories" where we learn important insights about ourselves and the world at large. I know that body-based meditation practices have the power to transform individual lives and communities because I've witnessed it both in myself and in hundreds of students and clients for over three decades.
As a trained somatic psychotherapist and educator, my goal is to assist you in becoming your own expert and to help you manifest the best version of yourself. My background includes decades of personal yoga practice as well as formal study in a variety of disciplines including somatic psychology, neuroscience, dance/movement therapy, music, psychophysiology, the science of change and motivation, and Western and Eastern philosophy. In addition to working as an iRest and yoga teacher, I am a psychology professor at Naropa University and the founder of Body Mandala - a holistic dance form that is fun and soulful. I'm also a Motivational Interviewing trainer and proud member of the MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers). I'm an avid and life-long learner and currently working on iRest certification as well as becoming a certified personal trainer. I hope my background serves to YOUR advantage and I would be honored to assist you on this adventure we call life!
