COURTNEY STURM

Hometown:  Wichita, Kansas

On weekends you can be found:  Getting Coffee in Brooklyn, Laying in the park when its nice. Hanging with my friends maybe some drinking:)

Favorite movie of all time:  "True Romance"  for sure

Favorite time of day to get your practice in?  I really like Practicing around noon if possible. That way i'm awake and still have the whole day to reap the benefits!

A quote you love?  "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

Your personal mantra is… stay positive, be real, be kind, stay grounded and trust yourself.

What's your favorite part of Y7?  Everything!! It's a place to escape. Every time I practice At y7 I feel like I can go into a different world. And that world is a new place everytime! I can really be alone with myself in the dark heat but also feel incredible energy from those around me. Not to mention the music is always on point and who doesn't like good music :) and the community is something really special absolutely non judgmental and never intimidating.. 

Dream vacation: a beach anywhere :)

Favorite yoga pose:  balancing half moon.. It's challenging and feels amazing!!

Favorite post yoga snack: Hmmm always changing.. Coffee and a turkey sandwich?! Banana bread!

How did you get into yoga? It took some arm twisting! My friends took me to a donation based studio and at first I was a hater! Then once I started experiencing the benefits physically, mentally, emotionally I was a believer :)
