|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
the benefits yoga gave her on many levels and knew that yoga would always be part of her life. She
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. 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 mind and relaxing the body,
she can’t figure out why everyone isn’t a yoga nut too!

|Marcelle tried a few yoga classes in her early twenties and loved them. However, being a wife,
business owner with her husband and a mom to 4 busy kids, yoga was put on hold until her kids
were a little older and a little more independent. In 2013, a friend introduced her to Ashtanga
yoga, and it was the right fit for her. Through the consistency of her practice, she has learned to
be kinder to herself, which then reflected outward to her interactions with others. It is through
her daily practice that she is better able to manage and process her thoughts, feelings and
emotions. For her, her yoga practice is a moving meditation and the sense of steadiness and
grounding she feels with it is what keeps her coming back to it, day after day
In 2015, she became a 200hr RYT certified yoga instructor. Since then, she has attended many
workshops with great teachers like David Robson and Janet Hawkins, and has also completed her
30hr Yin certification. She enjoys sharing what she knows with the students who come to her classes.
She hopes to keep them excited about yoga by seeing their own personal progress both on and off
their mat. It is about progress, not perfection. She is a firm believer that yoga is for every body, you just
have to find the yoga that is right for you. When attending her Ashtanga Flow class, you will be
encouraged to connect with your breath, find internal focus, and challenge yourself with a variation of
the posture that works best for you. Be prepared to get a little sweat on!
|José is a 200hr certified Yoga Instructor, Physiotherapy Assistant and Registered
Massage Therapist. She incorporates her experience and knowledge of all these areas
to take her yoga teacher training came to her when it was offered in Cold Lake in 2015.
The contrast and benefits between the two allow for her classes to include both the
physical and mental benefits of yoga. It excites her when students notice improvement
from yoga (in their mind and their bodies). José loves to watch all her students listen to
her cues and try to make them work in their body. All bodies can benefit from yoga and
when you allow yoga to quiet your mind and allow you to focus in the present moment it
can teach you so much about your body, breath and mind.

means paying attention in the present moment to our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, or

right now in an open, balanced and curious way. It also includes intentionally nurturing positive states
