Vancouver Yoga Review’s Co-Founder, Tracy, is a traveler first and foremost. Her affliction for embarking on global exploits is virtually unmatchable (okay, except perhaps by Taya!). Travel is her life, in fact. When not in Vancouver, she travels the globe producing exciting videos that are featured throughout the webosphere as well as across major US networks. In recent months, she’s traveled/ filmed in El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala and the Bahamas. A couple of her favorite travel memories include enjoying midnight tea with Egyptian friends in Cairo and searching for the world’s best taco (the spicier, the better!) in Mexico City. Through all of her travels though, she is always plainly aware that the journey is indeed far more important than any destination. 

Which is why she loves yoga. Yoga is a journey she began a couple years ago, and she is constantly inspired by all of the wonders (and inspiring yogis and yoginis) she discovers along this path.
