Ok so I now know how to do all sorts of "behind the scenes stuff" of blogging, IPS configuration, DNS stuff, blah, blah, blah...I don't know what any of it means...but I did it and learned a lot.....and my website is now

Speaking of learning, 2010 was the year of learning and surviving... The roller coaster ride  of 2010.  Jan 2010 we were at the New Albany Ballet studio and if you would have told me by Jan 2011, I would have my own studio, been ambassador to lululemon Columbus and then had it taken away because of a Facebook post complementing VSX (Victoria's Secret Sports Line),  been in NYC doing TGM with Pravassa Healthy Travel and instructing at lululemon in Soho, on 3 news channels, featured as "the in" thing to do in CMH Magazine and as one of the healthy businesses sharing the pages with one of my favorite restaurants North Star Cafe, and had a DVD release party that was sponsored by Victoria's Secret VSX line...oh and and went to to the Victoria's Secret fashion show, I wouldn't have believed it in one lifetime...and personally everything that I wanted to work on for three years was given no option Aug 30 when I was asked for a divorce...I keep mentioning "the divorce" because I am not sure why it was asked for when it was, ...2 days after the opening of my studio.  Ummm and they are a fortune especially if you need a good attorney! But again I wish Craig nothing but the best...It has been quite difficult but also a realization that I can survive through anything. Many people came into my life and I feel truly blessed to have them...and...some left and I wish them well but everything is about the now for me and moving forward...letting go has been essential in healing in many ways and in order to move forward, you must let go in order to survive...
As I always I still don't get the hype, but I get soooooo super excited to see so many of you and talk with you about how TGM has helped all of u in many ways...for me it has been LIFE CHANGING...every aspect from your stories, testimonials, support, non-judging, and a place of happiness oh and the workout too...The after effect of getting the "runners high" is truly the best feeling and I as I always say, this wasn't supposed to happen and I guess that is why it is truly surreal to me...I created TGM, my method for many reasons, physically and mentally and I am truly gracious that so many of you get it...

So 2011 will be the addition of classes, new instructors, workshops and many other things...The schedule will have additions beginning next week and I will update all of you ASAP...You can come to any class, they are listed as levels because Angie, who is amazing at teaching the essentials, goes slow and is a great explainer...I am not, but I am an adrenaline junkie...You can attend any class but know in the mixed up and kicked up things won't be explained in much can also step out of the studio at anytime, lay on your mat, just please no talking...We are working on finding the right mic but in the meantime I am going to stagger my instructors and future instructors around the room so you can watch the movement. My method is constantly evolving and is not text book...the positive energy is contagious and the passion I have is I want to say thanks for a great journey in 2010...please remember to presign in for all classes with HEIDI.TGM@GMAIL.COM we do get busy and YES WE TAKE CREDIT CARDS, SELL WATER, MATS, TOWELS....and have to limit the classes to 50 people so please reserve your spot and if you can't make it please cancel....Cheers to some madness in never know what will happen in my world :) Hugs to all of you and the schedule is posted to the left....Namaste'

Created in 2010, the first hot, dark, anti yoga one hour workout in Columbus Ohio. 2017 NOW REFINED and in the pitch dark, one red light . Not just hot, but steamy wet, 75 percent humidity, and based from hot power yoga vinyasa flow. NOT typical yoga. Innovative, intense will redefine, lengthen, burn 1000 calories plus if you like to go to the edge. SOULFUL, DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT, NO MACHINES. CORE BASED. VIBES, MUSIC and so powerfully sexy and empowering


LOCATION right off of 670 and Third street exit into downtown Columbus, in fact it is the first light make a left on Chestnut and right next to Oh Pizza and Brew ....117 East Chestnut Street is where you enter and check in...(lots of meters and lots around and Sunday downtown free parking all meters) our terrace is on Third Street and the first billboard you see sits right inside of it.

WHO IS TRACEY GARDNER AND WHAT IS TGM?Tracey Gardner Method abbreviated TGM is the intense fitness workout experience create by TRACEY GARDNER. Undefinable, the opposite of a bright, cold gym. The opposite of any fitness class because it is up to you and how hard you want it..No pressure, no competition, no being called out, no talking, no hands on adjusting...Just an escape to feed your soul. We sculpt, lengthen, define and build endurance, strength and stamina using our body weight, squeezing, activating and engaging every muscle from the fingers to the toes. Every class is different and created by Tracey through her series of injuries, depression, addictions. It is designed for everyone! Especially those who love a good runners high but hate to workout. It is different in so many ways and gives you the courage to keep going when all you want to do is give up. You can take as many breaks as you need and it takes at least 10 classes to understand the technique...but be patient, once it clicks it will give you a body you never thought you could get, your mind becomes clear and the crave becomes an addiction.

TGM IS NOT HOT YOGA, TGM IS NOT YOGA or PILATES or anything else you have ever done. You have to experience it to understand it and the evolution is constant as Tracey continues to create, tweak, reinvent every six weeks because she gets bored before anyone. TGM is the result of her being treated and medicated for her depression, anxiety and severe ADHD. After 6 weeks of the right doctor and medications TGM was born in 2008 and has continued to evolve and it is the best it has ever been.The struggle is real and part of her story and creation.
Her energy is contagious and she will make you crave working out instead of dreading it...

Entrance is on Chestnut and there are tons of meters and paid lots around but ask us if you have any specific questions


it's all about the music FOLLOW ME ON SPOTIFY "Tracey Gardner" will have my favorite beats that I am into now up soon....
