Nic Dorsch

Yoga has been in my life for 30 years, 20 years as a Yogalates Teacher, for the last 8 years a Yogalates Master Teacher Trainer. At 19yrs old I began my journey of Yoga initially to deal with postural conditions, injuries and ailments, however this was really a facade for the yearning and curiosity I had for spirituality. At age 30yrs I landed in my teaching foundations in Byron Bay with Louise Solomon and her Yogalates Method, whom I am honoured to support as I continue to love her teachings as her assistant in teacher trainings worldwide.  
The Yogalates teacher training is a complete 350hr training with in-depth studies in Yoga Philosophy, breath work (Pranayama), Adaptive Therapeutic Yoga, core + functional movement. In 2004 we lived and breathed it (literally) for 6 months full time, which I am sure embedded the practice into my every cell.  I knew this is what I wanted to do, I had found my Dharma - to share with as many people as possible the gifts Yoga has blessed me with.
I am passionate about sharing breath work, meditation, movement and alignment of the body in postures (Asana) so any BODY can experience the strength (Stirrha) and peace (Sukkha) this practice offers.

She teaches subtle, safe practices.

She began practicing Yogalates after many years of chronic back pain and instability. She was amazed at the gradual improvement that a regular yoga practice focusing on functional movement patterns made on her overall health. She studied the Soloman Yogalates method in 2007, and has been teaching weekly classes since 2008. She has also studied the Tattwas Shuddhi Sadhana (5 Element Purification) under Peter Clifford.

Tracey has been a senior teacher for the Santosha  YTT 200 hour Vinyasa Krama Yoga Teacher Training programs in Bali, and teaches on the Soloman Yogalates Teacher Trainings and Post Graduate Courses in Australia and Italy.

Tracey’s continued studies include Yoga and the neuroscience connection – Kristine Kaoverii Weber, Subtle Yoga TM. She weaves slow mindful practices into the open general classes. These focus on alleviating and managing daily aches and pains… and supporting greater mental, emotional, and physical resilience.
