Continuing Education

The continuing education opportunities below are most appropriate for Whole Life Yoga Teacher Training graduates, current teacher training students, and other students and graduates of Viniyoga-focused teacher trainings.  Teachers from other lineages will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Contact Tracy for more information.

Teachers who are certified by Yoga Alliance are eligible for Yoga Alliance continuing education units (CEU's).  Each classroom hour counts as one Yoga Alliance "Contact CEU".

Registration can be done online (below), or via e-mail (Tracy@TracyWeber.net). Pre-payment is required to hold your space. You are eligible for a full refund if you cancel more than 48 hours in advance of the seminar start date. After that, no refunds or credits will be issued.

Each class requires a minimum number of registrations. If that number is not met, the class may be cancelled.  This determination is made 5 days prior to the first meeting date, so don't wait to register!  In the event of a cancellation, payment will be refunded in full.

Teaching Yoga in Chairs

Chairs are a useful—and often underutilized—yoga prop.

Chairs:

  • Take pressure off knees and can be used to replace kneeling postures with a more knee-friendly option
  • Aid in balance
  • Facilitate traction-like effects when stretching certain muscle groups
  • Provide an alternative position for students who can’t come to and from the floor easily
  • Allow aging populations to enjoy the benefits of yoga with less risk and discomfort
  • Allow individuals with limited mobility to benefit from yoga
  • Provide a way for yogis and yogi-wannabes to practice yoga in the office

About Tracy

Tracy Weber is a registered yoga teacher (E-RYT-500) through Yoga Alliance and a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She began teaching yoga in 2000 and has been a practicing yoga therapist for almost 15 years. Her primary teacher has been Gary Kraftsow, author of the books Yoga for Wellness and Yoga for Transformation. She has taken intensive workshops with other master teachers, including Margaret Pierce, TKV Desikachar, Jeanne Achterberg, and Joan Borysenko. Tracy holds a Bachelors of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master of Business Administration. She has a special interest in yoga practices for back pain, anxiety, depression, and building bone health.

Tracy came to yoga to recover from a debilitating back injury, and she quickly fell in love with the physical, mental, and emotional benefits yoga provides. She founded Whole Life Yoga in 2000 and launched the first Whole Life Yoga Teacher Training in 2003. She has trained almost 300 yoga teachers in therapeutic yoga techniques since that time. Tracy teaches yoga using the Viniyoga methodology. The word "viniyoga" literally translated means "adaptation and proper application." Tracy believes yoga postures should be adapted for each individual practitioner. She infuses her sessions with caring, knowledge, and humor, and she uses yoga tools to help facilitate healing and growth in all areas of her students’ lives.

Tracy is also the author of the award-winning Downward Dog Mystery Series and an aspiring animal behaviorist. When she’s not teaching yoga, she’s usually at her keyboard writing or hanging out in nature with her German shepherd, Ana.
