Yoga as a group practice. This practice includes physical, mental and spiritual focus. It originated in India and was one of the six Orthodox schools from Hindu traditions. It has evolved in to many broader interpretations with secular approaches.
There remain three main goals for a yoga practice. First, achieve inward clarity. Second, develop control over mind and body through disciplined, consistent practice. Third, achieve an awareness and understanding of our actions and motivations.

I’ve been studying yoga with Tricia for about 10 years. After going to various other teachers now & then, I always come back to Tricia. I drive a fairly long distance to class, but I came to the realization that I am studying at the hands of a master so every mile is worth it. Hands down, for me, Tricia is the best yoga & bodywork teacher I have encountered. I say “bodywork” because her yoga class is never just about the asanas. She delves into mind/body, structural alignment, neuro science, breath, Ayurveda & heart based lessons. Besides being a gifted orator, she’s also a comedian. Her classes are fun, inspiring & educational. I received a 200 hour yoga teacher certification 9 years ago as well as a 1000 hour holistic health certification 35+ years ago. I also taught massage with my own massage teacher, so coming from my own, solid foundation of study with a broad spectrum of teachers, I understand Tricia’s knowledge of anatomy is kind of off the charts. She’s so innately gifted that all the movement she directs comes from her spontaneous personality, deep understanding of anatomy & the willingness to explore or create new techniques. Getting a massage from Tricia is an experience that needs another page for commentary. She has seriously assisted me with several body issues that take a long time to unravel such as a broken shoulder & broken leg, though thankfully not at the same time. I’ve been fortunate to attend several Byron Katie workshops that Tricia facilitated & also done private sessions of Byron Katie’s “The Work” with her. She had phenomenal insight into issues that I wasn’t seeing clearly. My sessions with her for “The Work” were ground breaking & pivotal. I recommend her classes & “The Work” sessions to people whenever the opportunity arises.
I’ve watched Tricia evolve as a creator/teacher over the last 25 years. She takes her life time studies of the body, movement, and spirituality and combines it with a deep understanding of our human emotional being. Tricia has a gift for translating her life time study, practice and growth into ways of reaching people on many levels. Her massage, movement and emotional work is always growing. Her classes and private sessions are a laboratory for learning and creating. She is in constant evolution passing more on to others. The variety of her work represents her creative well from which she delights in translating her knowledge. Her delivery is always filled with heart, humor and honesty. Her teaching provides new accessible ways to experience the body, mind and spirit. She has a gift for holding groups as well as working individually. She’s a master teacher of INTEGRATION. It’s always a treat to work with Tricia Duffy!
I’ve gone to Yelapa 2018 & 2019. I’m from Nebraska. A friend invited me to go experience her style yoga. My profession is a licensed massage therapist and bodyworker. Tricia’s work in classes is very unique. Her knowledge of anatomy is amazing. She works the body intrinsically. You move this part, then this part, then this part and so on and before you know it you’re in a “pose” that you thought you’d never get into. When your body parts get in right relationship with each other it’s an amazing feeling. It’s an invitation to get to know yourself at a much deeper level. She can energetically sense when you’re aligned correctly and not. She assisted me to get what I wanted..... better posture through correct alignment. Her voice of things to do for self care are engrained in my brain and body. I love it. I have also done Byron Katie’s the work with her. She challenges my thoughts and emotions which has helped me evolve to be a better me. She’s a firecracker!
I have been taking classes with Tricia for 3 years, the Cardio Drum class and Bench Yoga. Tricia understands the human body better than anyone I've ever met, and often caters specific movements in class to help with issues students are having. I can lift weights and use cardio machines at the gym (and I do), but Tricia's classes uniquely provide the mobility and balance that people start to lose as we age. She pushes you to do things you wouldn't do on your own, in a safe and effective manner. I hear peers complain often of pains and blame them on aging (I am 54) but I rarely have these because of Tricia's guidance. I have great movement, strength, posture and stability from these classes. And they are fun!
I’ve been in Tricia’s Cardio Drum class for about 4 years. The class on its own merit is a great work out, but Tricia (being who she is) creates a fun uplifting atmosphere within the studio. She is knowledgeable about the human body and lets us know why we need to keep in shape during the ageing process. She has a way of teaching that is informative to all, yet reaches out to each individual. The music, drumming and bouncing balls, keeps both mind and body energized and helps us to tackle whatever life may bring. Thanks to Tricia for inventing this weird and wacky way to exercise. With other instructors, I used to find myself bored and maybe attending half the classes. With Tricia’s classes I can’t wait for the next one, it’s an excellent way to start or end your day.
To practice Tricia’s YOGA INTRINSICS is an honor. She offers me a perpetually moving target, a personal challenge I’d never take on without her clever seduction. She entices me to go deeper. Let go of what’s in the way so Tricia can guide you home. Jill (5 years studying with her, feels like 100!)
I was fortunate to grow up taking yoga classes with and receiving massages from Tricia on the Cape. Now that I live abroad, I go to her yoga retreats in Yelapa whenever possible. I cannot say enough about the quality, integrity and effectiveness of her classes and the utter magic of her healing hands. Whether in a class or a massage, she has taught me so much about how I move through life both physically and spiritually. She's also never been afraid to challenge me when some questionable logic had perhaps led to some not fully realized opinions or movement patterns. Her approach to movement informed my earlier career as a dancer, and now that I’m a Pilates-based movement teacher, I strive to integrate her thoughtfulness, energy, ingenuity, and deep anatomical knowledge to my work. Whenever I’m back on the Cape I make it a priority to take class with Tricia - she’s truly one of a kind. The 20+ years of knowing and working with her has enriched my life infinitely and led to a level of compassion for myself and the world that I don’t know I would have discovered or experienced without her guidance.
Over the last 15 years, for 4+ months around the summers, I have taken Tricia's classes in Orleans. I take every class she teaches...Dance Alive, Cardio Drum, Yoga. I love them all. We are aging together and she is always on the fore front of what we need to age well. Proper alignment, flexibility and strength. Her vast knowledge about anatomy, and the way she shares her knowledge with her students, has helped me when I take classes when I am not with her. My body "remembers" how it is suppose to feel when doing certain movements (dance) or poses (yoga) or even when sitting at my computer. I have had the opportunity to get massages from her. Again, the breathe of her knowledge plus her ability to use it to "find" the root of my ache or pain and then "deal" with it, makes for an amazing massage. A massage that stays with you. In addition, Tricia's positive attitude toward life and spirituality over the years has helped me personally through my life's challenges and losses.
Tricia radiates a vibrant energy, creativity and an incredible knowledge of the body-who’s intricacies she’s always sharing to keep us injury free and guide us in being healthier. She is always innovating new ways to share energy. Dance Alive and Cardio Drum are both always inspiring! Awesome music, movement, intense work outs and safe. At the end of class I leave with energy and uplifted-even though I’ve worked my body hard. In yoga she uses many tools including benches, blocks, balls and some music-it is unlike any yoga class I’ve attended focusing on the essence of pure yoga and alignment rather than rushing through poses. She blends the spiritual and physical to lead each student to a deeper place. Another very unique part of the class is her personal knowledge and attention to her students- especially if there’s been an injury, she will modify a movement to benefit the healing. I’ve had the good fortune to study with Tricia for 23 plus years and have consistently attended 3 classes weekly.
