Meet Courtney Moss!
Courtney teaches Flow at 10:30am on Saturday’s and Power Flow at 6:45pm on Tuesday’s. Check her out!
Courtney joined the amazing team of Imagine Yoga Studio teachers this spring. Her classes offer a mix of both strength and ease. Courtney stumbled into her first vigorous vinyasa flow class. She left that class feeling cheery and positive which kept her going back for more. A year later, she pursued a 200 hour teaching certification and began to teach. Her classes encourage you to be disciplined yet lighthearted, to see the beauty in everyone and everything, and to enjoy the process. Whether it is holding a posture for just one more breath and then one more after that (and then maybe one more after that) and laughing as we fall out of balance, or coming into child’s pose feeling empowered while everybody else is in one-armed handstand. Courtney will help you to cultivate confidence to be content with what you have and who you are.
