I am a yoga teacher because I believe
everyone deserves to feel safe, sacred, and strong.
Tracy Peterson is a yoga instructor, reiki practitioner, and wellness advocate. Her love affair with yoga began in Northern Idaho back in 2008. She practiced for six years with Nancy Burtenshaw within the yoga realms of Baron Baptiste and Anusara. After traveling extensively throughout Asia in 2014, she received her formal training at Yoga Vidya Gurukul in Nashik, India, one of the oldest and well-established ashrams within the Bihar School of Yoga. Moving to the Midwest soon after her training, she met Joy Page of Joy of Yoga and continued to learn extensively from her yoga teachings and guidance which focus on holistic yoga through storytelling.
Using breath awareness to connect the physical body to the subtle body, Tracy uses a hands-on style to help students rediscover and reconnect with their true nature. Approachable practices that meets the person where they are is how Tracy connects with her students, and helps bring alignment and awareness to not only their yoga practice, but their lives as well.
While living in the Bay Area, Tracy had a steady yoga practice, and taught her public classes at Nest Yoga and Left Coast as well as a base of corporate and private clients including LucasFilm, Disney, and the Claremont Country Club.
Tracy has been fortunate to study weekly with Richard Rosen and Annie Carpenter. She has also taken workshops with Judith Hanson Lasater and Mary Paffard, as well as continuous trainings such as the Embodied Consciousness Immersion, and continues to practice steadily with the best teachers in the world.
The ultimate aim of Tracy’s teachings is to remain fully alive and present in the unobstructed here and now. This is every person’s Birthright.
