Meet Tracy Jennings-Hill, Owner of LiveURYoga
I ventured into my yoga practice over 17 years ago when I was retiring from the US Air Force after serving over 20 years. While on active duty, an injury caused the physical challenge of sciatica to arise. As a way to help maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle I began dabbling in different disciplines of yoga, finally discovering the Vinyasa style and finding my home. As I’ve grown to understand the value of the mind/body connection, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a fitness professional, but more importantly a yoga teacher, embodying all aspects of both professions.
Subsequently, I attended my first yoga teacher training in 2001. Since then I have completed my 500 ERYT certification specializing in yoga philosophy, Pre/Post Natal yoga, and Ayurveda with a pure Vinyasa. I am also a Senior Master Trainer, Ayurvedic program manager, and Yoga Therapist program mentor for YogaFit, where I lead over 20 yoga trainings annually. Additionally, I am a certified CHEK Institute Holistic LifeCoach (Level 1) and have been a group fitness instructor for over 19 years, with a flourishing career in which I have focused on indoor cycling and muscle strength/endurance training, with yoga being my main love.
As I have grown, LIVEURYOGA was born. My focus, vision, and mission is about providing a platform for transformation, empowerment, and growth by meeting each person where they are and helping them go and grow where it is needed using the basic principles of yoga–entwining mind, body and spirit. This practice includes meditation, movement, connecting with the elements, and also incorporating basic Ayurvedic principles to lead everyone to their bliss.
Finally, in addition to having studied with Beth Shaw, Anand Mehorta, and more, I have had the pleasure of studying in Rishikesh, India, the birth place of Yoga, on an annual basis over the past 8 years, allowing me to bring this authentic aspect to my teachings and practice.
