My name is Courtney Butler and I have been practicing yoga since I was a child watching PBS with Lilias Folan in the 70's. I have been an active practitioner of meditation and yoga for over two thirds of my life.

I currently work as a private yoga therapist and a Stress Management Specialist for the Ornish Reversal Program in Benton, Arkansas. I own two yoga schools at the 200 and 300/500 hour and have trained nearly 200 teachers in the past ten years. I co-own Balance Barre with Rena Wren, which is taught in over four states. As a yoga teacher I worked at the college level for ten years, in large local Health and Wellness Centers as an administrator , owned a yoga studio, taught yoga on the go,teach personal and therapeutic yoga classes, and have over ten thousand hours in the classroom teaching. I am a workshop leader, organizer of large fundraising events, organizer and director of yoga retreats and do consulting and speaking on a national level.
