Traci was inspired to teach yoga because of the profound impact yoga had in her own life.  She calls it her "phoenix moment” when yoga helped her rise up from the ashes and overcome trauma; first feeling physically stronger, then mentally, then spiritually.  As a teacher she strives to help others reconnect with themselves and reclaim their bodies.  “A butterfly must struggle out of its cocoon for it to be able to fly. I think that’ a beautiful cue to infer that sometimes in life we need to struggle in order to develop our ability to fly,” Traci reminds us. 

In each of her classes Traci integrates aspects of Emotional/ Trauma Sensitive Yoga to heighten awareness in the body providing a space where students can learn to release tension, tolerate sensation and manage fear.  She also incorporates a focus on making connections between the chakras and earth elements.  Above all, Traci creates a loving and safe place for her students to discover just how strong they really are- both inside and out!

Traci teaches Restorative Yoga at our Frederick location Wednesdays at 7:30 pm and Saturdays at 9 am.  

Traci also offers 90 minute Thai Massage Sessions and Reiki with Healing Crystals 60-90 minute Sessions. (Both availiable at our Frederick Location Only)
