While I started with yoga a long time ago, it didn't make sense to me or my body until I had the opportunity to practice with Courtney. Her techniques are solidly based in the structure of the human body, informing an intelligent and captivating practice. The quality of my time spent in physical movement and mindfulness with Court can not be understated.
