Courtnay received her 200hr yoga teacher training at Kripalu in 2003. Since then she has been enjoying the healing wonders of the practice as a student and teacher, studying with inspired teachers all around the globe. A licensed mind-body psychotherapist and PhD candidate in mind-body medicine, Courtnay has a depth of knowledge on the emotional and psychological experiences of yoga as a healing system. She believes that we can utilize the incredible gift of yoga as a means towards limitless growth. Her goal is to provide an intelligent, challenging, and contemplative class (with humor!) where you will have the opportunity to drop in to the many layers of your experience, body, mind, and spirit.
Courtnay Meletta instructs the following:
All Levels Vinyasa
Vinyasa is a popular style of yoga that seamlessly links breath with movement. It is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’ or ‘meditation in motion’ because of the smooth way in which the poses transition from one to another, almost like a dance. Heated Power Vinyasa takes the traditional vinyasa series and incorporates a dynamic flow that detoxifies, heals and rejuvenates the body. It is a powerful, and transformational class that cultivates strength, endurance, focus, balance, and flexibility.
Instruction is based on alignment and breath. The teacher will offer challenges and refinements to more advanced students while providing structure and support for beginners. In a vinyasa class, your breath is synchronized with your movement and you will be cued to move from one pose to another on either an inhale or an exhale. Students have the opportunity to cultivate gratitude and independence in their yoga practice, while learning to integrate these tools into daily life.
