Get up and move

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows exercise improves the circulation of blood, which transports oxygen and nutrients to every cell.

If you do not have enough movement your metabolism slows and becomes inefficient, causing poor digestion and elimination. Our minds become foggy.

Meet Courtney from NSRY!

Meet Courtney from NSRY!

Meet our beautiful, talented and master yoga instructor Courtney Battistelli!She is fun loving, smart and inspiring. You will leave her classes feeling strong and relaxed. Balanced and inspired.

Hi reader! Here’s a little about me, Courtney Battistelli:  I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training in Wyoming in 2015. My teachers had diverse yogic lineages including Kundalini, Kripalu, Anusara, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Bhakti and more. I am interested in creative expression and the power of the imagination. I love how yoga helps the practitioner align with presence and truth. Sustainable joy can be found through this alignment with our authentic selves. I am also passionate about the alchemy that occurs through experiencing and  recovering from addiction and dis-ease. I love practicing the art of teaching yoga. I am constantly humbled and inspired by the students and peers I meet! One of my favorite parts of teaching yoga this month, is theme weaving 🙂

Check out Courtney’s classes at NSRY on Wednesday evenings…

6:15pm-7:15pm Slow Flow & 7:30-8:45pm Flow & Restore

All levels and no experience. http://www.nsryoga.comIMG_1045
