A bunch of questions with | TRACIE
What is your day job?
I'm a yoga teacher, Reiki Master and Life Coach
What lights you up?
Spending time with people that love me and EVERY time a child laughs! Oh and nature.
A favorite tv show?
I don't watch a ton of tv so I'm going way back for this one. My all time favorite TV show since I was like 8 is Quantum Leap. I have resisted buying the boxed set several times now. More recent tv show is Parks and Rec because I'm basically Leslie Knope. I spent the majority of my previous 13 year career in local government and it is literally exactly how they portray things on that show. Literally.
A favorite local spot?
BonBon - so much French toast, so little time.
What do you love about Balance & Brews?
There's a bunch of stuff I love! First, I love that someone I love is building her dreams and accomplishing cool shit daily. Second, I love that people who might not EVER walk into a yoga studio have a place that feels comfortable for them to get on a mat, move and breath together. UNITY.
What's a dream vacation spot?
I haven't been many places but I was super lucky once to go to Ireland for a week for work and hands down my favorite place. My dream would be to go there every year.
