Courtney received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in 2015 from Yoga Six in San Diego, California. Her second training was a 200-hour with Just Be and her thrird a 300-hour with Bryce Yoga in Thailand. She is currently pursuing a bachelor's in Psychology. A natural teacher and leader, she is passionate about the immense amounts of growth that yoga brings: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. She is dedicated to helping others reach their best self. Without yoga, Courtney would not be who she is today. At first, she fell in love with yoga for its physical benefits. Growing up a competitive athlete, she craved the physical challenge. Then she began to notice subtle changes. She felt that while getting an amazing workout, she was also feeling more relaxed in her daily life. This led to an inquiry of yoga as a way of life, and how it can positively transform us into happy, confident, loving human beings. She absolutely loves people and wants to impact as many lives as she can through yoga.

I have a wiener dog named Moose, and he is my best friend!
Courtney Clark instructs the following:
Vinyasa Flow - All Levels
Dynamic flow-based yoga. Recommended for those having a familiarity with Sun Salutations A and B.
Power Vinyasa flow is a rigorous, sweaty yoga practice stemming from the ashtanga tradition. Poses are held for shorter periods of time and will link one breath with motion, creating a dynamic and fluid ‘meditation in motion.’ This is a hot, sweaty fun practice often set to fun, fluid, dynamic music. You will leave inspired and ready to shine off the mat!
Room heated to 85-88 degrees.
In our non-heated Yin classes you will experience postures done on the floor or against the wall with supportive blocks, blankets,and bolsters. Poses are held for a longer period of time allowing you to stretch connective tissue. You may experience guided meditation woven into the class. Expect to leave feeling balanced, connected, and whole. Great for all levels.
