June Featured Teacher: Tracy Sosa

Throughout the year, we feature the amazing individuals that make up the core of Yoga Blend: our teachers!

This month we get to know Tracy Sosa: 


What brought you to Los Angeles?
I came to LA in 1988 to pursue a career in modeling and to live with my mom.  I was not cut out for modeling, but loved being here and so I stayed!

How did you find yoga?
I found yoga when I thought my head was going to explode.  I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to accomplish a lot of things, and after my first class I thought, “Oh.  I’m a different person after I do this.  Very awesome.”

Cat person, or dog person?
I have a dog named Louie who acts like a cat.  He lays down on me when I meditate.  It’s pretty cool.

Favorite season?
My favorite season is summer.  The hotter the better.  I am happiest when it is over 80 degrees. Kinda like Heat Miser.

Dream vacation destination:
Anywhere in Europe and anywhere with umbrella drinks.

Childhood ambition?:
My childhood ambition was to marry Michael Jackson.

Three words to describe yourself:
Energetic, expectant, and optimistic.

Proudest achievement:
My children of course, but also the ability to forgive myself when I mess up.

Weirdest personality trait:
One of my weirdest personality traits is that in my head I am always correcting people’s grammar.  I have learned now not to say anything. 🙂

Favorite indulgence?:
Driving to Santa Barbara to eat at Arigato Sushi.

Pick a superpower:
My super power would be flying or floating.  I already do that in my dreams.

I rock out to:
I am currently rockin’ out to Ed Sheeran’s “Sing”.  It is living in my head.
