Courtenay appreciates how yoga helps her reconnect with her true self in the same way that spending time in nature does. Witnessing the awakening and self-discovery of inner awareness in students is what she considers so magical and rewarding. She is honored to draw on all of her studies and experiences to serve others in this beautiful yoga community and beyond, and hopes to empower and inspire others to do the same. Courtenay is grateful for all her teachers, but especially to Jayendra Hanley, who led her to the heart-centered practices of Anusara® yoga, and the life-changing philosophy of non-dual tantra. Born in the US, Courtenay is the owner, manager and visionary behind the Tree of Life Brussels, a certified Anusara yoga teacher and teacher trainer. She considers it a blessing to co-teach the Anusara teacher training alongside Silke Wilson, a longtime friend and colleague, helping students learn how to cultivate the teachings of yoga in daily life.
