Courtney Wexler has been practicing yoga for over fifteen years in places including Los Angeles, New York, London, India and now Honolulu.
The athlete in Courtney loved the physical challenge of asana, however, she found herself returning regularly to the practice because of the message yoga was unveiling in each class. Personally, yoga has helped Courtney find one-pointed focus while training and completing an Ironman triathlon, served in her recovery from marathon injuries and has reminded her in difficult situations to stop and take a breath.
In 2010, she received her 200-hour teaching certification through Aloha Yoga Kula in Kailua, Hawaii so that she could be a part of sharing this 5000-year-old secret with the world. In 2013 she received her Ayurvedic Health Educator certification through the California College of Ayurveda and in 2014 started studying with Tiffany Cruikshank, attending modules through her Yoga Medicine 500-hour teaching certification program. In September of 2015, she studied at Asana Andiappan College of Yoga completing a 300-hour course with Yogananth Andiappan and his father, Guruji, in Chennai India.
Her students find her light-heartedness relatable to their own yoga journey and are drawn to the sthira (strength) and sukha (ease) she brings to her classes. Courtney is honored to be considered a yoga teacher but relishes equally in being a student of yoga and of life each and every day.
You’ll find Courtney spreading the yoga love at local studios and hotels on Oahu, but she holds a special place in her heart for the donation-based outdoor yoga she teaches, called Yoga for My Homies. She also helps lead 200-hour yoga teacher training throughout the year at Yogaloha and Hawaii Yoga Institute.
