Courtney found yoga 10 years ago as a way of dealing with the stress and anxiety of college life. She continued her yoga practice and in 2009 enrolled in a 200 hour Hatha Yoga certification program through the Davenport School of Yoga in Davenport, Iowa as a way of furthering her own personal practice. Soon she found herself teaching at the two local studios, incorporating a vinyasa flow into her alignment-oriented hatha yoga background. She also taught chair yoga and stress relieving classes to teachers at the local high schools and community colleges. Now in Moab, she loves to take her personal practice outdoors and enjoys making yoga accessible to all.
