We will describe a non-uniform hyperbolicity result for the Teichmueller geodesic flow on the moduli space of Riemann surfaces. In particular, we will describe how quantitative recurrence implies exponential contraction along a foliation defined by geometric structures on the surfaces in the moduli space. This foliation is the natural analog for the strongly stable foliation of an Anosov flow.
