Hi! I’m Tracey and I started "Work In Progress" in 2020. I’m a mom of two big kids (17 and 20), have three blacks cats and a husband of 25 years and we all live together in a small Lake Ontario town. I love reading and never thought I’d say it, but I also love… Continue reading Work In Progress
CREATE THE SPACE This can be SO tough, but is necessary if you want an enjoyable practice. Decide if you need technology or not (YouTube or anything audio would likely need TV, laptop, or phone). You can find a realm of apps and channels that offer exercises and meditations or music you might want to… Continue reading Practicing Yoga At Home
"Not all of us can do great things, but we can all do small things with great love." - Mother Teresa - It's so easy to lose faith in people. To lose faith in the government, to lose faith in our legal or educational systems, to lose faith in god or a higher source/power... but… Continue reading Do Just One Thing
During class recently, it came to me that yoga is such a generous gift we give ourselves: a simple act of self-love. Even if it's just a few minutes a day, or an hour or two a week, it is a place to land. To return to. To return to ourselves. To return to love.… Continue reading An Act of Self-Love

I stream-lined my schedule to minimal work, minimal socializing, and minimal stress. There was a lot of closure on old… Continue reading Bring On A New Year!
Workshop In Port Hope I stumbled upon Johanna's work through a Facebook post, and was instantly intrigued. At that time, she was hosting a workshop in Barrie I was unable to attend, but I reached out to see if she would consider running a workshop in Port Hope, or the general area. It seems like… Continue reading Resolve: Stop Patterns Start Living
Even if you are not an introverted individual such as myself, it is important to take time for YOU that is just FOR you. Often our self-care or our "me time" includes fun social events, hanging out with friends, or indulging our senses. All great ideas! I am an odd ball of a human that… Continue reading The Value of Solitude
This is a promotion I haven't offered in a long time! But as summer looms I am hoping to recruit a few new yoga students, so here's the deal... If you sign up for the Tuesday 7pm class or the Thursday 10:30am class with a new friend/student you BOTH get $10 classes. Here's the catch:… Continue reading Ten Dollar Yoga Classes!
Today was a fun day. I started unpacking Rubbermaid bins I hadn't opened in about 6 years. I re-discovered the old yoga teacher training notes, from my personal training and from the teacher training I designed and guided. I found my old portfolio with the Child and Youth Worker diploma, and my reiki and… Continue reading Over 20 Years of Yoga
