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.
Tracy Desens instructs the following:
Move with the breath and place in a special way. Our vinyasa classes are mindfully and creatively sequenced. You will build inner heat, cultivate breath awareness and move with meditation. Vinyasa teachers offer modifications in order to build strength and flexibility, both in the physical and subtle body. Level 1/2 and up.

The foundation of this class is that yoga is for everyone and everyBODY. No matter your age, physical condition or injury inclinations, this class offers a space for you.
