ABOUT COURTNEY HARRIS YOGA
"Better to be yourself imperfectly, than to be someone else perfectly"
- Bhagavad Gita
I’m a certified Yoga Instructor based in San Francisco. Since 2010, I’ve tapped into the world of yoga, and I’ve been lucky to learn from wise and inspiring individuals. We are here to feel powerful and effective in these bodies. This practice offers that. Having the chance to share those lessons and experiences with my students fills me with joy.
I discovered the practice of yoga in my early twenties. My life felt out like it lacked focus and I needed to get out of my head space and into my body. Amazed at how yoga grounded me, made me feel a strong, steady and at peace with what was happening around me, I made a commitment to the practice and continue to work everyday to re-establish and maintain a better relationship with my body, our planet, and others around me. It helped me to rediscover my spark and tap into both a mental and physical agility that I didn't know was possible. I want to share that gift.
I have been teaching for over 10 years. Andrea Boyd and Jeffrey Cohn of Charleston, SC have had an incredible influence for my love of the practice with their teachings of Jivamukti Yoga Philosophy. I continue to be blown away by my many teachers in SF and am inspired by their creativity and fearlessness.
I teach a power yoga class that is both playful and spiritual. It will challenge you in the best way, yet leave you feeling grounded, inspired and reconnected.
I believe in the connection of music and movement to open the body and to clear the mind.My classes are truly “flowing” - connecting movement with breath - utilizing good music and sacred texts to illuminate aspects of the spiritual journey in a hectic world.
My goal is to put those practicing at ease and encourage them to try new things--to improve their practice, on and off the mat. My sequencing is designed to strengthen and tone the muscles of your body and mind, and is sure to take you to your edge.
My personal yoga practice has grown into passion for the health and welI-being of others and yoga has been the inspiration behind combining nutrition, wellness and aspects of mental health into a holistic practice. I graduated this June 2015 with a Masters in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MFT and am a certified nutrition and wellness coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
