What Students Say

The best way I can describe Courtney's teaching style is with the old saying, "Give someone a fish and they will eat for a day; teach someone to fish and they will eat for a lifetime." In class, Courtney will give me a fish to meet my immediate need (like a reminder to notice, or a strong physical practice to clear my head, or an eye-opening physical adjustment), but her greatest gift has been teaching me to fish for myself. The more I went to her classes, the more I found myself practicing yoga outside the studio, both on and off the mat. Through her methodical physical and spiritual guidance, practice has become not just something I do, but part of who I am.

Courtney’s knowledge of asanas and sequences is amazingly rich, her classes are well paced, and I appreciate the remarkable way she demonstrates poses while giving detailed verbal instructions. In an age with a plethora of certified yoga teachers, I feel indeed fortunate to have discovered one who can take me as far as I think I can go and then some.
