Courtney Sanborn

Courtney was first exposed to meditation in 1995 at the age of 14 and discovered yoga in her early-20's. Over the last 15 years she has maintained a daily yoga asana and meditation practice.

She completed her 200-hour teacher training in France under the guidance of Linda Munro and Gerald Disse at Ashtanga Yoga Paris. In 2015 she spent five months studying under Saraswati Jois, the daughter of K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India.

She is certified by B.N.S Iyengar to teach pranayama and mudras.

In 2017 and 2018, she studied Ashtanga under the guidance of Ajay Kumar in Mysore, India. She considers Ajay and Jodee Dixion to be her primary asana teachers.

She practices the technique of Vipassana meditation and has completed multiple ten day retreats and was an active member of the Zen Buddhist community during her time in Fairbanks, Alaska.

In addition to yoga and meditation she has studied Past Life Regression Therapy, Transomatic Ayurvedic massage and Yoga Nidra under B. Naga Kumar of Mysore, India. She considers Kumar to be her main spiritual teacher.

From a young age Courtney has been fascinated with Traditional Astrology and has recently intensified her astrological studies under her teacher Alejandro Diaz of Mexico City.

Courtney's passions lie in Meditation, Pranayama, Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Traditional Astrology, and Zen Buddhism. Recently, she has developed a strong interest in Yin Yoga.

For the last two years Courtney has divided her time between Alaska, India and France.



Courtney Sanborn instructs the following:
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Breath and settle into supportive postures.  This class is accessible to all, brand new to yoga, mobility issues (take note there are stairs to the studio) and any one wanting to relieve stress.  Make this class like an appointment, a well deserved practice to restore and revive. 

  • Ashtanga Yoga Basics
  • Ashtanga Yoga classes flow through a sequence to get you focusing on breath, building strength, flexibility and concentrating inward. This is much more than physical exercise, through moving our bodies we reveal areas and habits that need balancing and resolve.  Many, if not most of us have restriction and limitations to what our physical body can do.  All of the postures are simply practiced in a way suitable for your body, again, the breathing is the most important.  Just moving with breath, the best way you can into and out of the postures without pain.  
    All are welcome.
