Here’s some more info about Courtney:
Courtney is an Arizona Native and cherishes the opportunity to teach and inspire people in her hometown. She is a 500-hour+ certified yoga instructor through Modern Yoga and has trained with some of the most experienced yoga professionals in the world. Her purpose is to introduce beginners to yoga in a playful, feel-good way so they can not only establish a yoga practice on the mat, but take their practice off their mat and into their daily lives to create a vibrant and healthy lifestyle. She enjoys bringing the community together through teaching at Diamondbacks Stadium, CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa, the Fashion Square rooftop, festivals, and lululemon.
As a former state champion competitive gymnast, Courtney understands the balance between effort and surrender. She quit her corporate job in 2015 to pursue wellness full time. In her classes, she blends movement with breath and uses unique, mindful transitions and insightful alignment cues, while remaining light and inspiring. Courtney also takes pride in working one-on-one with students to strengthen their physical and spiritual practice to attain their goals. When Courtney isn’t teaching, she enjoys helping her husband on his food truck or hiking with their puppies Leo and Hunter.

Have you been wanting to try Nutrisense? Now is your chance! I’ve been using this tool on and off for a year, after I found out that my fasting glucose was borderline high. It’s enabled me to make simple changes in my routine, and learn more about how my body responds to certain foods, stressors, and habits.
Your blood sugar levels can significantly impact how your body feels and functions, and Nutrisense helps you analyze in real-time how your body responds to exercise, stress, and sleep. It’s so empowering to be able to see how your body is responding, and make changes as you go. I also like to wear a Nutrisense CGM every couple of months as a reminder to focus on the habits that help me sleep, function, and perform at my optimal level.
