Courtney Deri

From the start, Courtney’s life has been fueled by movement. Her classical ballet training began at age three and continued with prestigious schools that led a professional career across the United States. Her deep passion and dedication to that practice guided her to where she is today : personally and professionally.

Ballet gave Courtney a strong foundation of discipline, dedicated work ethic and precise attention to detail. Although dancing provided a vibrant pathway for communicating and processing, it was not until she discovered yoga that she truly understood the body’s innate wisdom and the profound connection between movement and consciousness. Although her yoga practice began with the intention to complement her dancing, it soon took center stage in her life.

Yoga ignited a spiritual fire and curiosity within that continues to feed Courtney’s soul. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher certification at Back Bay Yoga Boston under Lynne Begier, Ryan Cunningham, and Caitlyn Graham Visconte in 2014. Upon moving to NYC in 2015, she was fortunate to find her teachers Jamie Lugo and Heather Lilleston.

Courtney is passionate about alignment, safe but creative sequencing, self-study, and good music. You can expect to find an integration of these in her class.
