Tiffany Courtois

Certified Yoga Instructor - Certified Yoga Therapy Instructor Tiffany tried yoga on a whim and wasn’t quite sure during that first class if she actually liked it. She felt so good afterward, though, that she went back and was soon immersed in a regular practice. The time on her mat fed her soul and changed her perceptions of herself and her purpose, so in 2007 she said goodbye to her corporate job to enroll in teacher training. Since then, she’s been certified in many formats, including Hatha, vinyasa, hot (Bikram), yoga sculpt, and restorative. Always aware of the profound transformation yoga can affect in body, mind, and spirit, Tiffany has become increasingly interested in its specific therapeutic applications; she’s currently pursuing a Yoga Therapist certification with the Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute in Duluth, Minnesota. Whether she’s teaching “traditional” or therapeutic yoga, group classes or privates, Tiffany creates a safe, nurturing environment for exploration and discovery. With humor and love, she encourages and empowers her students to play, learn, and more fully realize their own brilliant health and vitality. tiffanycourtois@yahoo.com

Tiffany works out of the Oak Park branch and is open for privates semi-private and retreats
