Paula is a Colorado native having been raised on a peach orchard in Palisade. This cultivated a deep connection to being outdoors and appreciating the gifts of nature.
Her first yoga experience was in 2000 when she tried a Bikram class. It wasn't the class that sold her on yoga, but the teacher who influenced Paula to explore what else yoga had to offer and ultimately pursued her teacher training in Yin & Vinyasa styles of yoga. Paula's favorite part of being a yogi is there is a yoga for all ages and stages of life and feels like her practices is always evolving based on her own life's experiences.
Paula holds a masters degree in exercise physiology and teaches in the Human Performance & Sport department at Metro State University. She is a certified Wellness Coach and Personal Trainer, but her true education has come from raising four boys!
In 2015, Tracy quickly became an NASM Certified Personal Trainer, started an in-home and outdoor personal training business, and began teaching. To share her love of cycling, in 2016 she completed the Schwinn Indoor Cycling Instructor Certification. In her cycling class, she strives to give her clients an enjoyable but challenging ride.
Tracy takes advantage of all Colorado has to offer, spending much of her time outdoors hiking, trail running, biking, snowboarding, and exploring with her husband.
Recently she completed Laura Wade Jaster’s Spiral Mommas prenatal yoga training. She is now expecting her second child and enjoys sharing the benefits of yoga, breath
and movement with her students. Growing up with three older brothers, she finds prenatal yoga a welcome haven of sisterhood. Sharing the journey into motherhood with other expectant moms is a true honor. Her next training goals include cycle certification and restorative yoga.
