For this weeks wellness wednesday I’m chatting to Lee Tracey whom I met at the launch for Wellfest. I absolutely loved her energy. Then I took a look at her website and her smile and love for life and yoga just shone through. I’m so excited to try one of her classes, as she is the first Irish qualified Jivamukti teacher!
Originally from a financial services background, Lee decided to commit to her true passion; Yoga and bring classes and workshops to people that are interested in Self-expansion and growth.
She has travelled the world in order to study with masters and gurus. In New York she trained with world-renowned teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life of the Jivamukti Yoga School. She has also spent time training in the jungles of Costa Rica & has completed workshops with international yoga teachers such as Patrick Beach, Claire Missingham and Tara Judelle among many others.
As you’re about to find out she hits the mat to unwind, distress and practice mindfulness. She’s found her passion and is living it and here at Be Complete we just love that!!
How would you describe your lifestyle?
What’s your favorite food? Naughty or nice.
I do have a love of dark chocolate but at the mo I’m pretty in love with Avocado!
Do you exercise and if so what do you do to keep fit?
Yes! It’s a huge part of my life. Yoga every day. Boxing and running about 3 times a week.
How do you find balance in your day-to-day life?
Yoga and meditation. I have never found anything as life changing as Yoga.
How do you manage stress in your life? Do you meditate? Have you ever tried it?
Same as above!!! Sometimes when I am stressed I get on my mat and when I leave it I feel like a different person. Being able to tune in to what is making you stressed and then having the ability to let go of that is a big benefit of the practice.
People often set goals or intentions as they go through life. Is this something you do?
Yes! I think this is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. If you don’t know where you want to be, well then how can you get there? I often look back on older goal setting lists and see where I am and how I’m progressing towards them. Sometimes they need to be adjusted & sometimes I need a kick start!
How do you unwind after a busy day?
Yoga again!! Also a love having dinner and chats with my boyfriend. He is a good listener and I always trust his advice.
It’s the weekend, what do you do for fun?
I love music and a good gig is always great to go to. I love the energy & the feeling of connection. I also love food, so a nice meal is always welcome!
What’s your top health tip for our readers?
Find whatever makes you happy & do more of it… It could be Yoga, cooking, dance, crochet, writing, running etc. Keep doing it!
Finish the sentence – Being complete for me means…
Having the ability and freedom to pursue the things I am passionate about & having love and support from my family and friends.
