Two years ago, after being diagnosed with arthritis in her hips while training for a marathon, Tracy was searching for some low-impact options of exercise. Knowing the healing power of yoga she took a class at Core Energy where she not only found relief from her hip pain but also began a transformation of mind, body and spirit. One class led to 5-6 classes a week. She quickly developed a love for her practice that encouraged her, both on and off the mat, to let go of everything that didn't serve her, to find new connections with herself and others. Yoga also helped to relieve anxiety and depression she has battled for many years.
Seeing how yoga changed her life Tracy felt led to encourage others to feel empowered and to teach what she loves. In 2014 she completed 100 hours of training with Sid McNairy, a student of Baron Baptiste and in 2015 she completed her 200 hour Teacher Training with Susan Melsa at Core Energy - also a student of Baron's. She wants her students to believe in the power that lies within them, to be able to be present and to know they are enough just as they are (and to smile).
When she's not practicing or teaching Tracy can be found spending time with her husband and two teenage boys, trying new yoga poses on her paddle board, being with friends, travelling, hanging with her dogs, and daydreaming about living on a lake or in the mountains. She also designs and creates jewelry for her business, Beadiful Designs.
