Event Details


Live from GERMANY via SKYPE   The Warrior and The Yogi   Who are we? Our family tells us, society tells us, laws and customs tell us. But what do we say? How do we get to that place of self-knowledge and conviction where we are able to state without doubt, fear or anger, ??This is who I am, this is what I believe, this is how I intend to live my life?â?   How do we find our true calling, our soul companions, our destiny? In this task, a powerful ally is the Warrior Ethos. Directed inward, it grounds us, fortifies us and focuses our resolve. When we find ourselves taking a closer look at the path of yoga, we see not only parallels to the warrior ethos but also that they are a reflection of each other.   Lifelong yogi and warrior Chris Courtney leads you on a journey to understand how to blend the codes of the warrior and the yogi into a powerful and fulfilling life practice, all while building a more peaceful and just world. (Discussion and asana)       A dedicated yoga practitioner  and teacher (who first learned from his mother at the age of seven), Chris Courtney, offers classes  which enable you to link your breath, mind and body – allowing you to stay focused, calm, aware and steady.    Chris trained with Doug Swenson and his multi-faceted vinyasa style of yoga; Sadhana Yoga Chi.   As a Sadhana Yoga Chi teacher, Chris aims to create a holistic balance between strength and softness; between the internal practice and the external results. These are addressed through the encouragement of body/mind awareness, as well as a series of dynamic, flowing movements.   His influences also include Deb Dobbin, David Swenson, Tias Little and Bryan Kest.   Wellness and the integrity of daily living are what Chris most values on his journey as a teacher and life-long student. He brings over two decades of group fitness and outdoor leadership experience into his teaching and while his classes vary, his signature style is an ashtanga-inspired vinyasa-based mix infused with humor and generous helpings of kick-your-asana power flow sequences.   In 2010, he founded the Grassroots Yoga cooperative in Albuquerque, New Mexico and now he currently teaches at Salsasana and Blissful Spirits Yoga, as well as teaching at workshops and events around the country.   His goal as a yoga teacher is to get as many people as possible “off the couch and onto the mat” so they can begin their own journey of self-discovery. Thus, his approach is focused on making the practice as authentic, safe, and accessible as possible.   An avid climber, hiker and skier, Chris also offers specialized yoga classes for climbers, skiers and runners.  Chris is also an Iraq War veteran who offers free classes (in a special program) for his fellow vets.   He also offer private yoga therapy consulting and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.  Chris is grateful for his many teachers in life, especially his family, Doug Swenson, Amissa Burton, Ulla Lundgren, Anna Austin, and his students.   Chris is a headline teacher at the 2012 Flagstaff Yoga Festival, the 2012 South Bay Yoga Festival in Redondo Beach, CA, the 2012 New Mexico Yoga Conference, and the 2013 Sedona Yoga and Wellness Festival.  He also teaches workshops in NM, AZ, CO, IN, TX and CA and last year he completed a multi-city yoga and music tour, the Rock-N-Flow Fusion Festival, to raise money for the Africa Yoga Fund.   In between teaching yoga classes and workshops, he is also a columnist for Elephant Journal, an online yoga and wellness magazine as well as a contributor to Politico.  Currently, he is contributing a chapter to an upcoming book on yoga for veterans with PTSD.   Private lessons and workshops are always available.  Contact him via email at   You can follow him on Twitter at @ck_courtney
