About Courtenay Evans:
Yoga has been a passion and mainstay in Courtenay’s life for many years. She graduated from Charlottesville Yoga School’s Teacher Training Program in January 2013. After periods of living abroad and graduating from culinary school, Courtenay returned to native Charlottesville to share her passion of cooking healthy foods with others. Courtenay believes food not only nourishes but gives strength, longevity and clarity of mind–and yoga goes hand in hand with that philosophy. She believes practicing yoga gives acceptance and appreciation for one’s body and opens the door for self study on and off the mat.
