Who is Tracey?
I am a passionate change-maker with a critical eye and the capacity to inspire people to action. My signature skill is the ability to deliver classes that explore the intersection between mind and body through the practice of yoga.
I am deeply inspired by the use of movement as a therapeutic tool and I focus on functional movement patterns, the establishment of deep inner stability, and the use of breathing practices to modify anxiety. My goal in working with people is to facilitate the ability to engage in productive self-reflection, so that each individual emerges with the feeling that they are stronger and more capable for having engaged in our work together.
I am also a mom, a wife and a passionate lover of life in all of its expressions.
