After moving back to CA from an overseas assignment in Singapore in 2000, Tracey began taking yoga classes at the gym. The cross training was exactly what she needed to balance the high impact exercise she had been doing for years. When she took her first Bikram hot yoga class, she was impressed with the overall workout for both the mind and body. Her practice deepened while living in Milan, Italy for 18 months, practicing on her own. In 2006, she began teaching the Dayton Method hot yoga in CA. She left her executive position at a large industrial company to take the 9 week intensive Bikram teacher training and was certified in July 2009. She continues her education by attending Yoga Journal conferences, taking workshops and by practicing yoga with other teachers. She has taught and practiced yoga in CA, CO and now in Destin, FL.
