Anatomy, Physiology & Pathophysiology

Anatomy: The study of form or structure – typically by breaking things down

Physiology: The study of how an organism functions

Pathophysiology: The disordered physiological processes that occur due to injury or disease

For over 10 years Tracey has offered this course in both group and private format.  As a licensed health care professional with extensive post-secondary education in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, neuroanatomy, health assessment and critical care skills, she is uniquely positioned in her ability to share this information in a practical and cohesive way.   Her teaching style fosters critical thinking, and students emerge with the ability to assess the human body, understand patterns of movement and apply yoga in a therapeutic manner in the face of both injury and disease.
