What is Being Yoga?

Being Yoga began in 2004 when Tracie saw the need for students to have an opportunity to study and learn the aspects of yoga that create profound changes in a way that could allow real integration into one’s life.

Being Yoga provides an opportunity for the student to make a transition in his or her understanding of yoga. Ultimately yoga is practiced so that it becomes a way of being. In these classes, Tracie assists you in bridging the gap from study and knowledge to application and wisdom.

Being Yoga meets three Mondays each month from 7:30-8:30 pm and includes a 7-course series, A Course in Yoga, to provide in-depth asana study. The Monday sessions focus on studying and learning the comprehensive science and art of yoga psychology offering a methodology of understanding the self in relationship to oneself and others. This is accomplished through study and integrating the texts of yoga and applying to real-life experiences. A Course in Yoga Immersions focus on asana alignment and technique, awakening the inner teacher to deepen personal understanding.
