Courtenay has been in love with yoga since her very first class, in which a restorative teacher guided her into her first true relaxation in years. Since then, she has followed the path of yoga all over the world, completing teacher trainings in Hatha, Vinyasa and Kundalini styles in Thailand and Greece, and teaching at retreat centres in Hawaii and Mexico. Thankfully, this path finally led to the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga, where she spent two years in residence, immersed in the practice and study of Classical Ashtanga Yoga, and where she remains an active member of this beloved community. Courtenay now resides in Ucluelet, BC, where she finds joy working as a Sea Kayak Guide. Courtenay believes in the transformative joy of connecting with nature and with ourselves, and that ultimately, these are one and the same.
