Introduction

The body is its own best healer. And with a little assistance, guidance and support, better health can start today. Whether it’s yogapersonal training or small group fitness classes, Tracy believes movement is the key to wellness.

Our bodies were designed to move, not to sit. Research on exercise continues to demonstrate its profound effect on healing from a wide range of issues including depression, breast cancer treatment, bowel cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and many more. In addition, regular exercise is also shown to be protective against many diseases.

Yoga & Fitness Training

Tracy has been a personal trainer for over ten years and a certified yoga instructor for seven years. While she works with clients to achieve desired fitness and flexibility goals, her expertise resides in facilitating increased body awareness, agility, balance, coordination and overall well being. Her clients are varied, but she enjoys training and teaching yoga to special populations, such as those in post-rehabilitation. She has considerable experience working with seniors.

Tracy is certified in the Vinyasa yoga tradition and invites everyone, at all levels of health, to explore the connection between the body and the breath. Her hope is that everyone can find freedom through this ancient form of movement. That’s why her style is gentle, expressive, and safe for all levels.

Tracy has a background in ballet, as well as competitive athletics as a long distance runner in Cross-Country & Track. These days she enjoys skiing, basketball, yoga, hiking, tennis, Taiji and the Alexander Technique.
