Welcome to the Yoga Room!

Hatha Flow


This class is taught by:

Tracy Desens

Tracy’s love for yoga started 15 years ago in Southern California. She moved to Tahoe in 2000 and loves it! Tracy obtained her certification in the YogaWorks method by Lakshmi (Angie) Norwood in March 2014. YogaWorks is a combination of Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Viniyoga; basically stated, it is alignment with flow. In Tracy’s classes, you can expect a level 1-2 in difficulty, breath awareness with flowing movement, use of gentle sun salutes to heat the body, an emphasis on alignment in postures, and use of props. In addition to Tracy’s love for yoga, she greatly enjoys being outdoors; hiking, mountain biking, SUP, skiing, XC skiing, camping, dancing to live funky music with her husband and having fun adventures with her two young, beautiful daughters. Tracy is very grateful for the Yoga Room and its teachers for this opportunity to share, grow and align with one another, the local community and the wider community.

Jenna Minnes

Jenna Minnes founded The Yoga Room in January of 2015! Jenna's heart and soul goes into the studio as the owner, teacher, manager and student. Her passion for the Tahoe City community and Yoga is what inspires her most. Jenna’s first yoga experience was at Kirpalu at age 16. The class stuck with her until her early 20s when she was reconnected with the practice. As a bodyworker of almost ten years, Jenna sought out yoga as a form of self care. By experiencing the physical benefits of her yoga practice she started to share the advantages with her clients. Observing her own shifts of the physical body, she found an even deeper progression within her mind and spirit. Jenna has embraced the teachings of Ashtanga, Anusara, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Restorative, as well as her extensive knowledge as a bodyworker, to form her classes into a balance of moving from the heart while honoring the physical container. Jenna completed her training with Nikki Estrada through YogaWorks and continues to expand her knowledge with frequent workshops, training and intensives.

Ann-Britt Hakansson

Ann-Britt
was born and raised in Truckee California and feels deeply connected to her mountain roots. She is incredibly grateful to have grown up in this outdoor community. Living here, she developed a love for skiing, biking, hiking, backpacking and the guidance and
solitude of nature. Ann-Britt was led to yoga during her years as a competitive ski racer, seeking an outlet to stretch and heal her overworked muscles. As she traveled the world ski racing, and later settled in Denver for 6 years, yoga was always a constant
and became so much more than simply a relaxing stretch session. In 2015, Ann-Britt felt the calling to deepen her yoga practice and traveled to Baja, California to study at the Yandara Yoga institute, earning her 200 hour teacher certification. For her, this
was a transformational experience that opened her up to the belief that love is surrounding us and also within us, and it is through yoga that we can rediscover that love. She has returned to Tahoe, and is devoted to the practice of coming back to herself,
remembering the divine wisdom that resides in each of us. It is through teaching yoga that she can share this knowing with others. Today, she studies under Meg McCraken and Shari Beard. She believes that a combination of yoga, time in nature, good food, live
music, dogs and a supportive community are the seeds necessary to growing your happiest life and highest self.
Hatha Flow invites students to sense energy and subtle shifts through asana (postures) and prananyama (breath). Expect intentional movements in the body while stabilizing and grounding physically and mentally.
