Courtney Krishnamurthy, ERYT-500, owner of the Om Fairy® studio, has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years. A self-taught yogi for many years, she found the practice helped her quiet her mind and discover a deeper level of clarity. There came a point where she wanted to understand more about the effects of her yoga practice so she attended Avalon Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training. The training was a wonderful dive into a variety of yoga styles as well as a deeper look at the physiological and neurological aspects affected by the practice. She went into this training merely wanting to deepen her own practice, but thanks to getting many chances to teach during the training, she came out knowing there was so much more to share and learn with others about how yoga can change your life. She has continued to study both the physiological and the more esoteric and philosophical aspects of yoga, sound, and meditation. You can see the complete details about Courtney’s training and the teachers she has studied with here.
Courtney’s goal is to help others discover yoga and take from it what they need in the present moment. She pulls from her knowledge of a variety of yoga styles to help students find an engaging and challenging yet relaxing practice that helps deepen awareness of themselves and quiet the mind. Her signature style is Flow & Hold® Yoga, but she also teaches many other styles to help students find exactly what they need. Play and finding different ways to experience the body are key components to how Courtney approaches yoga and life. In addition to bringing this playful nature to the mat, she teaches aerial and SUP yogas to help others tap into their playful sides, face their fears, discover new strengths, and understand how the body and mind shifts in these different conditions.
Developing these insights, whether on the mat or in the air, is core to Courtney’s approach to yoga. She believes in helping students learn to listen to their own bodies and minds so they can follow their own guidance whether practicing in class or at home. Courtney hopes to guide you on the winding path that connects you with what you are looking for in your yoga practice, deepening your connection with your own inner intelligence along the way so what you learn in your practice can be carried with you into everyday life. Her website, Om Fairy, provides inspiration and short practices to inspire and help you along this path.
