About Tracy

My yoga journey started in 2003 after the birth of my third son. Until then I’d enjoyed popular types of exercise including dancing, running, swimming and weights. Although my daytime job was as a computer analyst/programmer, I loved exercising so I trained as a fitness instructor and taught aerobics at the local YMCA gym.

After 10 years of mostly high impact exercise, my joints began to suffer and my flexibility had decreased significantly so I decided to try yoga as I’d heard it was good for flexibility.

I soon realised the benefits were far reaching. I felt healthier and more balanced, both physically and mentally. I found I was calmer and better able to cope with stressful situations.

Wanting to deepen my own yoga knowledge and share this amazing practice, I completed my Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training with the Byron Yoga Centre in 2009 and level 2 (500 hrs) in 2010.
Tracy Gray and Simon Borg-Olivier
In 2010 my interest in bio-mechanics and physiology also drew me to study with physiotherapist and yoga master Simon Borg-Oliver (Yoga Synergy).

Simon’s balanced and body friendly yoga is one of the biggest influences of my teaching style. I continually find inspiration learning from Simon and continue to study with him.

I have since studied with his teacher, Master Zhen Hua Yang and completed my Calligraphy Yoga level 1 training (200 hours) in 2016.

As a teacher, I realised that many people come to yoga to treat specific conditions. To enable me to support my students further I trained in the specialised field of Yoga Therapy with Dr Ganesh Mohan of Svastha Yoga and Ayurveda, travelling to Hong Kong, Auckland and Sydney, throughout 2012 to 2014.
Certified Yoga Therapist
Throughout 2017 I trained with Gwyn Williams in Zenthai Shiatsu therapy. This healing form of bodywork is a combination of shiatsu, Thai massage and osteopathy, bringing a deeper sense of awareness to the body to facilitate self-healing.

2017 also saw me qualify as a Pilates Reformer teacher.   Reformer machines are an excellent tool to facilitate rehabilitation from muscular skeletal issues and improve core strength.  Both the Zenthai Shiatsu and Pilates Reformer training bring an additional dimension to my therapy sessions and yoga teaching.

I have had the pleasure to teach hundreds of people at the Woodford Folk Festival (2013 and 2016) and Yoga Fest (since 2013), as a teacher trainer for Santosha Yoga Teacher Training and through my workshops and retreats in Bali and Queensland.

My study and learning continue to evolve so that I too can share my knowledge and support my students and therapy clients to improve their well-being in the best possible way.

“Tracy’s yoga & anatomy knowledge, teaching style and personality are world-class. She’s one of my favourite yoga teachers ever, and I’ve tried a lot. She’s patient, understanding and welcoming. Her classes literally get your energy flowing again”
