Tracy’s yoga journey started many years ago. A friend/co-worker talked Tracy into her first yoga class in 2002. She agreed to go to get some exercise but soon understood the benefit yoga gave her on the physical level. After suffering from headaches and back and neck problems from a car accident years ago, she couldn’t believe how much a weekly yoga class was helping her. She soon became addicted to yoga and received her original yoga instructor certification through the Yoga Association of Alberta and was teaching at a local wellness center while still working part time but after 2 years of that decided to make a change. Yoga got all of her attention. In 2007, she opened her own yoga studio, Yoga for You. In 2012, she received her yoga therapy certification from Mount Royal University. Over the years, she has also received her Yoga Alliance certification as well as many others, such as Prenatal, Yin, Thai Yoga Stretching and more. When Covid-19 hit in March 2020 and she had temporarily shut down her studio, she got to work! She created and offered a month long Stay at Home yoga program online. When the shut down was extended, she created the Yoga for You Online Studio plus started teaching Zoom yoga classes twice per week to one of the companies she contracts her teaching to. Finally, she was allowed to reopen the studio but with restrictions. Then…there was another shut down at the end of November 2020, due to Covid, so she moved the studio classes to Zoom. With the pandemic still “in charge”, she decided to close the studio doors at the end of February 2021 and continue her online teaching. Now, that restrictions have lifted, she has been teaching outside classes and this fall will offer some class at the Bonnyville and District Centennial Centre. She is passionate about yoga and the effects in has on mind, body and soul. Her husband, 2 adult children, family and friends often refer to her as a yoga nut. Having fun and feeling good while building strength, flexibility and balance and de-stressing, calming the mind and relaxing the body, she can’t figure out why everyone isn’t a yoga nut too!
