What Courtney wants you to know:

❝ My goal is for you to start seeing how all of the principles of alignment start to make poses seem more similar rather than so different from each other. I want you to understand the basic anatomy of how the human body moves so that the postures make more sense. I want you to understand the bigger meaning behind the physical practice so that yoga becomes something that is also practiced and applied off the yoga mat because ultimately that's where it really matters. By the end of the 10 days, I hope you feel empowered by your own knowledge to continue to move, breathe and BE in the world in a more mindful, curious, caring way. ❞

Courtney Wexler, E-RYT 500

Courtney Wexler has been practicing yoga for over fifteen years in places including Los Angeles, New York, London, India and now Honolulu.

The athlete in Courtney loved the physical challenge as a new student to asana over fifteen years ago. However, she found herself returning regularly to the practice because of the message yoga was unveiling in each class.

In 2010, she earned her 200-hour teaching certification through Aloha Yoga Kula in Kailua, Hawaii. In 2013, she earned her Ayurvedic Health Educator certification through the California College of Ayurveda. In 2014, she starting studying with Tiffany Cruikshank, attending modules through her Yoga Medicine 500-hour teaching certification program. In September of 2015, she studied at Asana Andiappan College of Yoga completing a 300-hour course with Yogananth Andiappan and his father, Guruji, in Chennai India.

Yoga has helped Courtney find one-pointed focus while training and completing an Ironman triathlon, served in her recovery from marathon injuries, and has reminded her in difficult situations to stop and take a breath.

Her students find her light-heartedness relatable to their own yoga journey and are drawn to the sthira (strength) and sukha (ease) she brings to her classes. Courtney is honored to be considered a yoga teacher, but relishes equally in being a student of yoga and of life each and every day.
