more about Tracee Stanley...

She has been studying Yoga and Tantra since 1995. A former high level executive in the film industry for over 18 years, she began sharing her understanding of the ancient technology of Tantra when her teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker initiated her into the lineage of Sri Vidya in 2001. She found that these practices created a foundation of balance and clarity in the fast paced world of Hollywood and was inspired to open yoga studios to share the teachings. She co-owned and operated the Divine Motion Yoga studios until 2010 while continuing to produce and oversee feature films. It was during this time that her passion for teaching grew and she endeavored to find a way to marry her love of film with yoga.

The focus of Tracee’s teaching is empowerment, sankalpa, self-mastery and healing. As a Level 1 Certified Para Yoga Teacher she utilizes the unique practices of the tradition to guide students towards the door of awakening to their true nature, creating positive momentum and accelerating the trajectory towards fulfilling their destiny for an empowered life. She has developed the programs Yoga for a Broken HeartTM and Yoga for Willpower and IntentionTM and currently trains teachers in these systems.

Her new CD and 40-day interactive Soul Journal The Empowered Life is  being released by Pranamaya in January 2016. Tracee is on the faculty of Esalen Media Company.  She leads teacher trainings, presents at workshops, festivals and retreats internationally.

As yoga class was called to order, I couldn’t help but notice the group of us present for early morning Ashtanga class were all women over the age of 30. In fact the average age amongst the group that stepped forward into Samisthiti was 45 years old. More than half were mothers with kids at home.

Costa Rica Tacos, and Yoga

I think yoga should be the prescription for everything in life. Addicted to food? Try a little yoga. Get caught speeding? Instead of a fine, go to 5 yoga classes. Going through a divorce or life change? Find a killer counselor, and practice yoga. Related to Donald Trump? Try yoga. Busted with marijuana? Why do we even care anymore? Why did we ever care? Oh, and sure, go take some yoga.

Fear & the Spiritual Practice

Authored By: 
Rachael Patterson

My son is such an inspiration for me.  He is practically fearless.  It doesn't matter how many times he falls, he loves to climb.  He would stand on the back of the couch to look out the window before he could walk.  He climbs chairs, tables, his crib, anything he can hoist himself up on. He grins from ear to ear when he conquers a new piece of furniture.  I watch in wonder as he climbs up, up, up, and it makes me ponder the fear I feel as I watch him.

Travel Tips to Stay Well

I almost titled this article "Why are the airlines trying to kill us?”… but then I remembered, they just don't know better…

I'm not sure why this holiday season's travel hit me as hard as it did, I've been all over the globe by myself without a hitch.  Maybe it’s possible that my perspective has changed in the recent past...now that I've experienced what a healthy doshic balance feels like, travel induced Vata derrangement is like a bucket of ice water to the face!

Parshvottanasana: The Lateral Extension

Authored By: 
Luke Ketterhagen

Parshvottanasana, the lateral extension, is a standing posture that finds its way into the repertoire of almost every yoga student. Lengthening the torso over one leg and bending forward from the hip joints awakens an intense stretch in the deep muscles of the gluteal region as well as in the hamstrings, and dramatically strengthens the lower back. Parshvottanasana also improves balance and isolates the movement of the pelvis from that of the upper torso. It is a posture with such a rich variety of benefits that it shouldn’t be ignored.

Your Body Speaks Your Mind

Authored By: 
Kim Salisbury

One of the most amazing books that I was introduced to several years ago during my yoga therapy certification was “You’re Body Speaks Your Mind,” by Deb Shapiro.  Since reading this book the very first time it has remained at my bedside and weekly I go to it for answers and inspiration.  It is filled with stories and recommendations for decoding the emotional, psychological, and spiritual messages that underlie illness.  It presents the idea of how interconnected the mind and body are and the importance of listening to both. 

About the Author: 

Kim is the owner of The Fit Room in Plano, TX and much of her week is spent one on one with people seeking healing and health. Having a passion for all things physical, Kim began her career in personal training, became curious about the mind/body connection opening her world to Pilates and then dealing with injuries herself and those of her clients, dove head first and still hasn't come up for air into the healing world of yoga.  Currently studying to become a health coach, Kim wholeheartedly believes that your health and wellness is not just dependent on being on your mat or showing up at the gym.  Living a healthy life involves meaningful relationships, physical activity, fullfilling employment and a spiritual practice.  It is keeping balance in these 4 areas of life that keeps us well, joyful and passionate.
