COURTNEY MARINO

After years of running had taken a toll on her body, Courtney was drawn to Bikram Yoga in 2008 to help alleviate physical ailments such as stress factures, sciatica, body tightness and fatigue. Deciding it was time for a change; she took her first Bikram Yoga class in South Florida and immediately felt healing benefits. “After class my body didn’t hurt and my mind was calm. It was the best I had felt in months and I haven’t run since.” Three times a week quickly turned into a daily practice and in 2009 she left her fast paced corporate sales job for a career in yoga.

Courtney attended Bikram Yoga College of India for its intensive 9 week teacher training and when she returned home she quickly made teaching Bikram Yoga her full time job. “My goal as a teacher is to provide inspiration, compassion and a place for personal growth.”

Courtney also promotes healthy, holistic living through diet and lifestyle. When when she isn’t teaching yoga, she is a Holistic Health Coach and a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).
