You may have heard Courtney's classes referred to as "church" or "sermons." You won't find institutionalized Christianity, of course, but you will find a deep understanding of yoga philosophy and an inspirational connection to whatever you consider to be a higher power (spoiler: it's already in you). Keep reading to get to know Courtney as exhaustively as she knows astrology and the Sutras, and then experience "church" firsthand at one of these four Courtney-led events:

Fair, kind, silly, fun, and my friends would also say I give great advice (I know that’s more than three words, oops!)
I changed the spelling of my name from Courtney to Courtnie when I was 9 and spelled it that way for over 20 years just because I thought it looked cool. Eventually I realized the OG way was more me!
Not comparing my current self to my past self. Feeling guilt free about saying no. Having more compassion for myself. Learning how to self motivate and implement discipline kindly. All this work applies to my practice on the mat and off.
I love acting, napping, and hanging out with my husband and toddler.
Mexican food is my fav. Specifically Tex-Mex (native Texan here) which just means that cheese is slathered over everything lol.
My mom and my daughter. I guess what came before and what comes after. Legacy. Lineage. Witnessing evolution in real time.
I didn’t see a lot of teachers that looked like me. And I was so changed by yoga that I wanted to share it. Also, it came naturally so I couldn’t deny dharma.
I don’t think it’s my place to say even though I will always come with a lesson okay?!?? It just might not be the one they need or want. I just want my students to have an experience. To feel something.
It’s a podcast for meeeeeee! True crime, astrology, pop culture, yoga. Love them all!
The mantra Sat Nam-I am Truth, Universal Consciousness, Divine energy, limitless, boundless, free.
