Tracy amazes by meeting each of her students where they are and taking 200 hour teachers and embellishing them towards their 300 hour certification. It’s not just a certification, it’s an experience that will enhance your teaching and your life!

Yoga 108 is an endeavor that is well worth its weight in gold! The curriculum is profound on many levels and is presented and explored in such a variety of ways that the material is interesting, fresh and relevant. Not only is the breadth of Tracy’s expertise vast, she is well connected and provides guest presenters that enrich the program. ... I have found it to be an essential part of my life-long learning of how to be a better yoga teacher.

Tracy is an outstanding teacher & spiritual guide. I cannot say enough about her as a teacher & facilitator. She led every class from the heart & was a wonderful facilitator in discussion in class & on Facebook. I can’t imagine a better experience than what she provided. Her guidance alone, in class & individually through emails, was worth every penny.

I am so impressed by the content of this course. I truly feel that it is one of the best 200 hr programs out there. And while I feel I have learned so much, it has also made me want to continue learning, because I can see how much more there is to know!
