Instructor

Courtney’s life is dedicated to movement. Born and raised in sunny California, she found herself in a dance studio from the age of 3. Courtney pursued her passion for classical ballet for many years, and believes she would not be where she is now without it. She studied and performed with various prestigious schools and companies across the United States. Courtney also spent time studying at The Boston Conservatory.

In May of 2014, Courtney completed her RYT 200 hour certification at Back Bay Yoga Boston, under Lynne Begier, Ryan Cunningham, and Caitlyn Graham Visconte. Her practice started with the intention to complement her dancing, but before she knew it, yoga became the starring role in her life. This practice ignited a spiritual fire within her and continues to feed her soul. She currently studies and practices under the guidance of her teacher Jamie Lugo.

Inspired by the workings of the mind, finding release through movement, and honoring of emotion, Courtney strives to offer a safe place for you to step into your higher conscious to discover, and explore your center of strength.  

Now living, teaching, and learning in NYC, Courtney is extremely honored to a part of The Class By Taryn Toomey. A practice that she believes will truly bring the best out of the body, mind, and soul. A journey of going into oneself, to then get out of oneself, to then go back in and reveal one’s truest and best self.

“Nothing is more revealing than movement.” –Martha Graham.
