Teacher Spotlight: Tracy Martorana

What is all this “Holistic Living” Mumbo-Jumbo?

By Tracy Martorana, Owner of Tracy’s Teas

Do you hear the word “holistic” a lot these days? How about terms like “sustainable” or “whole foods”? I notice these words everywhere, and I wonder why they have become the new buzz words? People all over the globe have been falling into unhealthy habits and I believe people are tired of feeling sick and tired. People want to feel healthy and vibrant; they want to be part of a supportive and uplifting community. Are you tired of feeling sick and run-down? Let me teach you how to get your mojo back - how to live a better, healthier, more fulfilling life.

If this is the first time you are meeting me, let me give you a quick rundown of who I am. My name is Tracy. I am an herbalist, a quality assurance analyst, a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a homeowner, a neighbor and a friend. I work full time as a QA analyst and run my own business (Tracy’s Teas). I admit I have a lot on my plate, but all of these roles are important to me. I also feel a strong need to be an active member on this planet. I give time and money to several charities and try to live a conscientious life. However, I have found that in order to do this, it takes a mind-set that is slightly different from the fast-food, more is more, sedentary, and careless lifestyle that is marketed to us everywhere.

I recently decided to expand my business from just selling herbal remedies and teas, to teaching and coaching people on living a more holistic lifestyle. Why? Because if I want these things for myself, I have to believe others want it too.

So what exactly does Holistic Living mean to me? I have searched for the perfect definition, but I can’t find just one because it really does mean a variety of things. Here are my favorite definitions:

- Living a balanced life; physically, mentally and spiritually.

- Living in harmony with the earth.

- Making healthy & ethical choices.

- Taking care of yourself and your environment.

- Focus on health and disease prevention through healthy, balanced living.

It is my intention to live my life this way, and to inspire and coach you to do the same. I am devoting my blog to this topic, in hopes that we can build a community of like-minded people, supporting each other in living a wonderful and holistic life. You can find out more about me and my blog at Thank you for spending your valuable time with me, I hope to meet you again at a class or on my blog!

Tracy will be teaching a variety of Holistic Living Classes at Rochester Brainery. Her next upcoming class will be on "Herbology 101" on Wednesday, April 24th from 7-9pm. Check it out here!

    I’m super lucky that my boyfriend is also vegetarian (in fact, he was brought up vegetarian so has never eaten meat!) so our food related disagreements are more around cuisine rather than source of protein!
