Court Morgan, E-RYT500 (She/They). Court’s unique and skillful teaching style enables students to find a greater depth of understanding and awareness in their practice, both on and off the mat. Her interdisciplinary approach synthesizes the precision of alignment, energetics of classical yoga, Sanskrit, Buddhist studies, anatomy and trauma healing while weaving together poetic metaphor with clear instruction that emphasizes the development of natural awareness, compassion and playfulness.
Courtney began a regular meditation practice in 1997 and incorporated yoga asana in 2001. Her style has been strongly influenced by the YogaWorks lineage of teachers where she completed her foundational teacher training and subsequent apprenticeship with co-founder and master teacher, Chuck Miller. Inspired by the YogaWorks model, from 2013-2019 Court founded and taught at Revolver Yoga Studio in Walla Walla, Washington, while studying with and assisting trainings for Jason Crandell in Seattle, London and San Francisco. She continues her study of the yogic arts in the Buddhadharma and is deeply honored to have been encouraged to teach the dharma by her teachers Alexis Santos and Vance Pryor. Courtney holds a Master's degree in Design Studies from Central Saint Martins University in London. She lives in Providence, RI with her partner and fellow yogi, 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.
