About The Teacher
E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP®
An avid runner, Courtenay took her first yoga class in 2007, after getting hurt training for her first marathon, when a physical therapist recommended it as a great way to cross-train. “After my very first practice, the moment I got up from the mat, I felt overwhelmed by a deep sense of gratitude. I felt like I had an encounter with God.” That sense of gratitude continued to prevail and 12 years and 13 marathons later, she discovered that yoga was the perfect way to cross-train for life. She continued her yoga journey and completed her 200-hour certification in 2014 and her 300-hour certification in 2019, both under the guidance of her Guru Dana A. Smith at Spiritual Essence Yoga. Courtenay became a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider in 2018.
Courtenay is a Reiki Master and a Thai Yoga Bodywork practitioner. She is the creator of Gospel Yoga Flow ®, a vinyasa flow, geared to creating a "worship experience" on the mat. Gospel Yoga Flow ® focuses on strengthening the spirit and the mind, as much as the body. Formerly a book publisher by profession, she holds BA and MA degrees in English. She is also a wife and proud mother of two daughters. She is working on her first book, "Peek-A-Boo Faith: Meditations for Conquering Fear," which will be published in 2020.Source: vidaasana.secure.retreat.guru
