Introduction to Mindful Living

This class is taught by:

Tracey Moore Lukkarila

RYT-200, Baptiste Methodology
Tracey first discovered yoga at the gym. As a self proclaimed gym rat, she enjoyed yoga as a part of her gym routine, but she never really felt connected or hooked the way she had heard from avid yoga practitioners. At the recommendation of a friend she eventually made her way into a yoga studio offering Baptiste Yoga. Her first impression was that the class was brutal. It was too hot and she sweated way too much. She was sure that she would never return.But the things the instructor said about rinsing out and opening up kept coming back to her. She felt compelled to try again. From the second class onward she was hooked. She realized that the practice was not just about building strength and stretching her body, but also strengthening and stretching her mind.

As a teacher Tracey hopes to help others get grounded, clear their heads, and live in the present on and off the mat.

Tracey holds a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a master's certificate in Public Health. She is passionate about animals and she volunteer with Animal Care and Protective Services (Jacksonville's city shelter). She rounds up feral cats for catch/neuter/release with her husband Troy. Tracey also enjoys craft, travel, hiking, camping, watching movies, reading, singing, and spending time with friends.
Introduction to Mindful Living
What would your life be like if you could be more fully present? Are distractions keeping you from being fully engaged in your life? Feel like life is whizzing by? Out of control? These are common problems in our busy modern society. Mindfulness is an ancient technique practiced widely in Asian cultures, which has recently found its way into Western medicine. This powerful tool trains our mind to focus on the present moment. With repetition, we rewire our brains, giving us the power to shift our way of being toward better mental health.

This 2 hour workshop will explore three paths to mindfulness; the physical you, the mental you, and the mysterious you.
