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.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
