After thinking about becoming a yoga teacher for many years, Courtney finally took the plunge into her first 200 hr training right here at Shakti in the fall of 2017. Her skills and confidence flourished during the Teacher Mentorship Program, which she completed through the winter and spring of 2018. Courtney looks forward to continuing to develop her teaching as she shares it with others.
In Courtney’s classes, you can expect a sequence based in Baptiste Power Vinyasa that will be challenging and fun. Inspiration for her classes is drawn from yoga philosophies and a belief in not taking yourself too seriously. She hopes that students can use the time they are dedicating to themselves as a tool to help navigate whatever life is presenting to them at the moment.
Courtney is a Seattle transplant from the east coast with a BFA in Fine Art from the Rochester Institute of Technology. When she’s not on her mat, you can find her painting, knitting, dancing to Beyonce, and playing with her giant dog, Bruce.
