Courtney Griffin

Owner & Instructor

In 2011 I came to a crossroads in my life and realized I needed a big change.  My friend encouraged me to go to Austin, Texas and participate in a Level One Bootcamp yoga training with Baron Baptiste.  I knew very little about yoga and even less about a bootcamp. By the end of the week I knew that I was on to something powerful and life changing.  I spent the next 4 years doing the work to heal what was broken within me and training to become a yoga teacher. That turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.
Today, I am a 500 hour E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance and a Certified Tier 1 Baptiste Yoga Instructor. I am remarried to my best friend, Steve. together we have 3 kids and 5 grandkids who inspire me endlessly.  I am grateful to have such a rich life; and, I am committed to holding a powerful space for others to seek and discover their greatest possibilities.
