    I have never done yoga before and was actually scared to try because I didn't feel like I had great balance since I hurt my ankle. I am so glad that I gave it a try with Tracy. She encouraged me to keep my shoulders relaxed while doing the warrior stance and to be conscious on keeping them relaxed throughout the day. I never realized how tense I was. Tracy demonstrated stretches and poses that worked for me. I could actually feel an openness in my back. I have never been to any class where the teacher asked me questions and guided me to do moves that I could do. I was so relaxed afterwards. My back and body felt looser and I felt relaxed for the first time in a long time. I really enjoyed doing yoga and can't wait for my next session with Tracy.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I offer a free phone consultation so that we can both see if we are a good match to work together. In addition, I will email a student intake form prior to the first session so that I receive feedback that will enable me to customize the session to fit the student's needs.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received 200-hour kundalini training from Kundalini Yoga East in NYC. In addition, I received another 200-hour hatha/vinyasa training from Urban Bliss Yoga in Charlotte, NC. I am a registered Yoga Alliance teacher.  I am pursuing sound healing training that will allow me to work with bowls directly on the client's body to promote wellness.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have had a variety of yoga students: younger students and older students, beginners and intermediate students, students interested in yoga for physical exercise and those who want more of a spiritual connection to their practice, and people who are drawn to the different modalities that I teach (kundalini, vinyasa/hatha, meditation/mindfulness, and sound healing). However people come to me, I meet them where they are and try to understand their journey and where they want to go with their practice. We work together to develop a practice that is both comfortable and leads to growth.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be open to seeing if there is a connection between yourself and your instructor. I offer a free consultation so that we can see if working together would be mutually beneficial. Ask questions and talk to a prospective instructor about your journey and your goals.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Why are you looking for a private yoga or meditation teacher? What do you hope to get out of working with a private teacher? What characteristics are you looking for in a teacher?
