The Team.

Courtney Hanson

Owner

Hey soul sister! I’m Courtney – best selling author, podcast host, yoga instructor – E-RYT® 500, reiki master, hypnotherapist, trauma-somatics healer and inspirational speaker. I help women remember their souls purpose and return home in their bodies. I am a wife, mother of three, fur mom to three and successful entrepreneur. My journey through life is the framework that has led me to serve others. I was homeless on food stamps, and a closet alcoholic who tried to take my own life due to trauma. I haven’t just overcome darkness, trauma, anxiety and depression – but I have used these pains as lessons and stepping stones to mold me into the woman I am today, helping others reach their goals physically, mentally, and spiritually. Let me help you break through barriers, step into your purpose and become the Divine Goddess you were destined to be.

Jeyzel Rossi

Instructor

Hi friends. My classes emphasize the importance of expressing yourself, your hip openings and your heart.  I believe that your mat or earth is the canvas and your body is your tool to create your art form. I started practicing yoga in 2006 and began teaching in 2016. After almost a decade of being away from California, I came back and stumbled upon Courtney’s studio. After meeting her, I knew this is where I want to be. As an E-RYT® 200 and YACEP®, I teach Gentle, Flow, Vinyasa, Power, Meditation, SUP Yoga, and will continue to teach a mind and body practice cultivating gratitude and finding your inner warrior with Warrior Wheel Yoga. I am so glad to share my practice with you.
