Tracy Lynn is a yoga instructor (my personal favorite in 19 years of practicing yoga) , a Lululemon ambassador, an artist of movement, a dancer/performer, and most importantly a woman who is 100% , unapologetically her most Authentic Self.
Tracy has the midas touch when it comes to guiding her students to get rooted in their bodies while ditching the ego for the incredible surrender, connection and release in the body that is Yoga.
Her classes are rich with humor, zen, challenge and the perfect amount perverseness that creates an absolute unique Yoga experience.
But Yoga is much more than Om’s and sun salutations to this incredible woman.
As a survivor of battled addiction and abuse in her teenage years, Yoga quite literally helped to heal her traumas from those challenging chapters of her life and helped her to discover her true potential, diverse passions and healing gifts that she has been contributing to this world by being authentically herself.
It takes courage and strength by choosing to remain true to one’s self like Tracy does every single day of her life and ditch the path opting for a “marketable appearance” to attempt advancements in business.
Next to her deep love for yoga is her deep love for dance and performing.
She uses her dance performances to reveal her body discoveries to the audience AND herself.
She is a FAR cry from anything “traditional” when one thinks of a yoga instructor.
She is a true artist who dances with her inner light and her shadows; expressing the beauty within both of them through her creative modalities of movement and art.
