Revolver_01_edited_edited.jpg

A natural teacher with an intuitive and relaxed presence, Courtney teaches the synthesized awareness of the body and mind as pathway to integration with the heart. Introduced to meditation in 1997 and yoga in 2001, she received her foundational certification from YogaWorks. Court proceeded to study and apprentice with master Ashtanga teacher and YogaWorks Co-Founder Chuck Miller and completed advanced teacher training under the guidance of Jason Crandell. She continues to deepen her studies in the Theravadan Buddhist tradition and is currently a part of the first joint IMS & BCBS program for Buddhist Studies. Court is the founder of Revolver Yoga Studio in Walla Walla, Washington, where she taught from 2013 - 2019.

 

As a teacher, she is regarded for her integrated approach to anatomy, physiology and embodiment, humor, and physically powerful, graceful approach to movement practices. She offers an intuitive, pragmatic and light-hearted approach to living from the heart, and emphasizes exploring the idea of sustainability in every part of life. Her philosophy as a teacher is to help students access, trust, and understand their innate resources for wellness through personal investigation of the processes of body and mind. Courtney currently lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with her partner and fellow teacher, Laura Williamson.

The best way I can describe Courtney's yoga 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.
