Like everyone else, I am a continual student of life. Change is inevitable but the way we handle it can be divine with some acceptance and a good sense of humour. Growing up a dancer, I was left with daily aches and pains in my body at a young age. Yoga not only physically healed those discomforts, it also taught me a way of life that was inclusive, connected and open hearted. This experience became my inspiration to continually learn more in the realms of yoga therapeutics, meditation, and holistic nutrition. My goal is simply to share this knowledge in hopes that those around me may feel more alive and healthy each day.
Tracey Grebinsky is a Canadian yoga teacher currently based in Istanbul, Turkey.
Movement has always been a way of expression and relation with life for Tracey. Growing up as a jazz and ballet dancer, a progression into yoga as a young adult seemed natural. Not only did yoga rehabilitate the often physical discomforts left from dance, it’s philosophy, postures and insights gave her a deeper meaning into how she could relate to the world.
Upon moving to Beijing, China in 2001, her personal yoga practice became her stable ‘home’ in her continually changing new world. She continued to practice as a way to stay healthy mentally and physically while handling the demands of a busy career and an expat lifestyle. Upon meeting her husband and the arrival of her first daughter, Tracey relocated to Istanbul, Turkey in 2008 for yet another brand new life. Through the challenges of growth and change, she could always find a sense of ‘home’ on her mat in the silence. Over the last 20 year journey and thousands of miles, yoga remained the constant healer in her life.
In order to share these powerful qualities of yoga and a healthy lifestyle, Tracey went on to obtain her 500 RYT Advanced yoga teacher training with a therapeutic approach certification under Hart Lazer. She also holds certification in Restorative yoga under Cindy Lee; a Bachelor of Alternative Systems of Medicine from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines; and is completing her Clinical Nutrition and Holistic Health certification with The Academy of Natural Health Sciences.
Tracey offers her students a healing space to be themselves. Her classes consist of graceful sequencing, time for meditation and breathing, and positive empowerment. Her approach towards students is compassionate, patient and encouraging leaving the student feeling strong and centered.
Our modern day world is full of demands, Tracey understands the importance of not only taking a moment to ‘catch our breath’, but also how breathing and moving in a more conscious way can vitalize you throughout your entire life journey.
