Courtney James Parkyn
Courtney was introduced to yoga at the age of 17 by her mom. Being an athlete her whole life, she struggled with the flexibility aspect of yoga, but was drawn to the spiritual side that other exercise forms lacked. At the age of 24, she decided to change her life's path, leave a promising career in business, and embark on becoming a yoga teacher. She completed her first 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2008 with FITA Fitness. She began teaching group classes at a Pilates studio. She is now a teacher trainer for Yogaworks, and believes wholeheartedly in the Yogaworks method of teaching.
