About the instructor:Tracy Hodgeman and Chiara Guerrieri.
What to expect in Tracy’s classes: Tracy’s classes are laced with humor, anatomy references, therapeutic movement, self massage, and traditional yoga poses. She emphasizes functional movement, breath, strength/stability/sustainability, and down-regulating the nervous system. All of Tracy’s sessions start with a call for requests- she then creates a custom sequence on the spot based upon what she hears and sees in the room. Tracy draws on her 25+ years of practicing and teaching yoga, and her ongoing study and fascination with all things movement and wellness related, to inform and inspire her offerings. A participant recently summed up her classes as “effective, creative, and fun!”
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: Tracy started with Iyengar style, which transitioned to a 13 year stint of Ashtanga Vinyasa, followed by Yoga Tune Up® and Viniyoga/therapeutic yoga. She currently studies primarily with Shari Friedric
What to expect in Chiara’s Classes: Chiara teaches us how to connect with the body through the breath, how to track physical sensation moment to moment and how to find an internal sense that guides movement and choices for wellbeing. In both her SoulMat & Hatha yoga classes, expect to go slowly, to pay attention to your body and breath, and to explore alignment. An important aspect of Chiara’s teaching is to help students learn when – and from where – to stabilize or mobilize. Expect the wisdom of a 30-year teaching career, plus a good dose of humor, to infuse each class.
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: SoulMat with Patrizia Gavoni, Hatha Yoga with Bob Smith, Forrest Yoga with Ana Forrest, Shari Fredrickson, ParaYoga with Rod Stryker, and dance from around the world.
