Tracy Hodgeman: Yoga Instructor

Tracy has been practicing yoga since the early 90s, and teaching for over 13 years. She trained at the Ashtanga Yoga School, and was the first yoga teacher ever hired at the Ballard Health Club. She initially started practicing yoga to help manage the residual neck pain that stubbornly lingered after an automobile accident left her with a fractured C2 vertebra. Now she says she’d rather fight than quit. As for why she loves the Ballard Health Club, Tracy says, “I have been teaching at the BHC since before most of you were even born. What keeps me here is the people. BHC is my family and my community and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful place to teach.
