Meet the lead teacher

Courtney Wexler

Courtney Wexler

Courtney Wexler has been practicing yoga for over fifteen years in places including Los Angeles, New York, London, India and now Honolulu.

In 2010, she received her 200-hour teaching certification through Aloha Yoga Kula in Kailua, Hawaii so that she could be a part of sharing this 5000-year-old secret with the world. In 2013 she received her Ayurvedic Health Educator certification through the California College of Ayurveda and in September of 2015 she studied at Asana Andiappan College of Yoga completing a 300-hour course with Yogananth Andiappan and his father, Guruji, in Chennai India.

Other credits include completing Amy Ippoliti’s online 90 Minutes to Change the World course designed to raise the standards of professionalism in yoga as well as completing 50 hours of studying Thai Massage from trainings in Thailand and Maui.

Personally, yoga has helped Courtney find one-pointed focus while training and completing an Ironman triathlon, served in her recovery from marathon injuries and has reminded her in difficult situations to stop and take a breath.

Her students find her light-heartedness relatable to their own yoga journey and are drawn to the sthira (strength) and sukha (ease) she brings to her classes. Courtney is honored to be considered a yoga teacher, but relishes equally in being a student of yoga and of life each and every day.
