Cortni is an excellent instructor-- very knowledgeable and skilled. I appreciate her supportive and encouraging approach.


Carla Cushman RYT200

Completing 200RYT training at Mindful Motion Yoga Center was relaxed, informative and provided an intimate setting with small class size. I formed friendships and camaraderie among my peers to learn the basics for teaching and practicing yoga with greater understanding. I discovered more about myself as well with time practicing and teaching on my mat. I plan to continue my yoga journey with more training to come at Mindful Motion Yoga Center. Thank you Cortni Saunders for helping me grow and continuing to be a resource in my pursuits of yoga practice, training and teaching.


Mary Beth Holbrook PT, RYT200

I greatly enjoyed my teacher training at Mindful Motion Yoga Center. The staff are very nurturing, patient and empowering. The curriculum is broad, covering not only yoga history, safe practice and instruction, but also professional consideration. The program covers several months and variety of classes to attend while training to integrate what is learned in didactic portion of the program. I would highly recommend this training program to anyone!


Amy Tower RYT200

Great support, learning opportunities and knowledge from our teacher, Cortni Saunders, throughout our training. She is knowledgeable, dedicated and her passion is teaching. She has not only formed me into a yoga teacher (which I did not start out the training to become) and yoga student, but a better person. I highly recommend taking a workshop or training with Cortni Saunders at Mindful Motion.


Ashley Chance-Fox RYT200

Mindful Motion provided a holistic and thoughtful training to me over my training. Not only did Cortney provide supportive feedback, she took the time to form connections with the students. The material taught was structured so we understood the underlying principles &; why things were done a certain way. I would highly recommend Mindful Motion to students seeking a teacher.


Jessica Weaver RYT200

I went into training fully expecting to only want to teach Hot 26, with very little devotion to vinyasa/power and none toward restorative yoga. However, Mindful Motion’s training really challenged me and brought me out of my comfort zone in terms of the styles of yoga I practice. Going through this training broadened my horizons, for which I'm eternally grateful. Contrary to what I originally believed I would teach, I am currently teaching Hot 26, Vinyasa/Power, as well as restorative.


Ashton Lay RYT200

Cortni is one of the most intentional and experienced teachers I have come across. She provided consistent and thorough guidance throughout the training to allow me to develop my own confidence and voice, and has continued to be a consistent support and champion of mine in the years post-graduation. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to create a solid foundation in yoga to expand from whether it be for a personal practice or to pursue teaching.


Amy Green ERYT200

Thank you, thank you, lovely yogi teachers. I had a fantastic and meaningful experience. The teacher training has enable me to develop a therapeutic yoga protocol for a local cancer hospital for patients to do gentle breathing and stretching while receiving chemotherapy. I have also been able to teach vinyasa flow and hot yoga. What a gift. Thank you.
