My name is Tracey (some know me as Chika) and I work and live in Central Alberta. I am a recognize certified Yoga Instructor and Yin Yoga Teacher currently teaching at YogaNation in Red Deer, Ablerta.

I am a certified AFLCA Group Fitness Instructor offering the occasional class with the City of Red Deer recreational facilities, G.H. Dawe and Collicut Centre. Many of my classes are fun, functional , intense and always leave you in a puddle of sweat with a smile on your face.

I am a graduate of the Red Deer College Kinesiology -Adapted Physical Education program, certified CSEP-CPT and currently completing an undergrad at the University of Alberta in Kinesiology.
