“I felt like a huge weight was lifted off of me, I feel happy again. I love myself now, I believe in myself, I know that I am worth it. I can and will do what makes me happy. I feel more at peace with myself.
I am confident in my decision making process because I feel I am more in touch with my higher power! I know that the choices I make will be what is best for me.
Courtney is a beautiful soul that really cares about everyone. She only wants you to full your greatest calling and is willing to help you in any way she can. I have only worked with a therapist which I feel didn’t get me anywhere. It’s hard to find a genuine, authentic, honest-to-goodness person who really cares about you!
Courtney gives you the tools to help you get in touch with yourself. She helps you reach your highest potential by guiding you through each powerful experience.
Courtney is a genuine person and trusting her to guide you through your journey will be one of the best things you can do for yourself.”
Krysten Rodriguez, Owner of Botanic Body Yoga
"Before working with Courtney I was in a state of fog, and chaos in my life - partially due to circumstances out of my control, but also due to neglecting myself in almost all aspects, and engaging in some self-destructive habits. I had a strong knowledge of yoga, meditation, healthy diet, and other self-care practices, but was not implementing them in the way I should be.
During the program I felt very clear, safe, open hearted, supported, seen, heard, loved, and held. After the program I felt incredibly energized, empowered, inspired and excited to implement all of the new knowledge and insights I had soaked up.
Working with Courtney felt incredibly safe, and empowering. More than other coaches or mentors I’ve had in the past, Courtney really makes you feel seen and heard with such genuine presence, and a deep intention to truly offer her best in each given moment.
The essence of Courtney’s offerings are to root you deeply into the present moment of life, and empower you to set yourself free to live in your highest truth.
I would tell anyone considering working with Courtney to take the leap immediately, and be ready to let go of anything that’s been holding you back ~ cause you’re about to feel so empowered to set yourself free baby :) "
Courtney Lewallen, Owner of Traverse Beyond
“Transformational. That is how I would describe working with Courtney. I came to her ready for growth but not knowing where to start.
The self growth I experienced affirmed the direction I was going. Since working with Courtney I have made HUGE moves in my life thanks to her empowerment.
I have stepped into my own power and am grateful every day. I continue to build my business successfully, I have walked away from relationships that don't serve my higher self and I practice unconditional self love daily.
I show up because I want to make a positive impact in this world. I am so grateful for Courtney.
I recommend her to anyone and everyone ready to make a positive impact in their lives!!"
Nikki Fielding, The Conscious Culture Fairy
"Before working with Courtney I was frustrated. I had a very in depth spiritual practice but was struggling to make sense of mastering this earthly dimension, grounding all of my manifestations into reality, and harnessing the power of the healing relationship with Mother Earth.
Now I allow myself more grace. Honoring feelings as they come, calling on support when needed, and knowing that I can return to living the embodiment of love at any time.
Courtney is such a special soul. She is truly living her life purpose guiding others to awaken and remember their own power and live their purpose to serve and make a positive impact on the world. She differs from other coaches I’ve worked with in the variety of ways she helps you integrate the lessons learned both during and after.
Courtney is so gifted at dropping into her expansive heart center and holding this space for her clients and community. Witnessing the power that this space has to transmute fears and alchemize pain and suffering into love is a gift in itself. Observing these shifts personally is truly transformational.
To quote Courtney “the moment something crosses your awareness it’s yours to address.” If working with her has crossed your awareness, accept it as the sign from your soul, that she is the guide for you at this point in your journey and fall into trust once you make that decision forces beyond your wildest dreams will conspire to show you the way to make it happen.”
Andrea Vanderbilt, Owner of Teach Me To Grow
“Courtney offers a transformative experience to delve into and strengthen the relationship and appreciation within and for ourselves as the unique and valuable beings that we each are.
Courtney is an extremely special person with expansive knowledge, professionalism and experience. She truly wants to see every human achieve their highest version of self and is extremely well-equipped to aid you in your journey. She has the ability to really listen. To every single person. She creates a safe container, and puts her students first.
While working with Courtney my expectations were
completely blown away. I felt that I was able to
reconnect with the “real me”, the most authentic part of me (and literally connected face to face with my higher self!).
This provided the clarity that I was seeking, along with deep healing, and a brighter outlook on life as a whole. I have made physical moves to take my life in a new direction -- one that I feel promises more freedom and a brighter, broader perspective on how I relate to everything I encounter in my day to day life.”
Jill Kelly, Owner of Jilly Juniper Art
“Courtney is like a member of your family, because she is Soul Family. She naturally loves you without effort. It never felt forced like with other coaches and mentors. She is open to your input and always there to provide wisdom from her own experiences. She is both someone I look up to and that I can relate to right now. It felt amazing to experience such comfortability and connection with someone.
Courtney’s offerings are loving, inspiring and transforming. She combines her gentle nature with her innovative experiences to create space for loving change. There is no shame, no need to fault the past, only to be in the moment you are working with her.
Show up, be present and listen to her teachings - that is how you will experience nurturing transformation and powerful shifts in consciousness.
Soulfully, I can surely say Courtney’s encouragement of us to see ourselves as “God beings” has reshaped my world. Not only being a part of God but one with God has cleansed my soul.”
Dr. Trevor Bennion, Owner of Fitnphys
"This was a wonderful, empowering, life changing experience. Courtney is a talented instructor and educator (and I studied education/learning theories in my doctorate, so I'm saying this from a professional and expert perspective), and she has a profound passion for what she does.
This was an international retreat and the whole experience was safe, and the venue had everything we needed to allow us to focus on the yoga practice, educational sessions, and personal development. I'm also pretty sure I made a few life-long friends :) "
"I don't say this lightly, this experience was life changing. Whether you're a yoga professional, a spiritual traveller, a corporate desk jockey, or an entrepreneur looking for answers and to connect to nature, this retreat offered a new way to approach life.
It was not just a travel experience, not just a yoga excursion, it was a way for me to find myself. A way to connect to a greater purpose in life. I walked away with lessons I will cherish for the rest of my life, and the relaxation, the incredible food, the loving people, and the tranquility of the atmosphere were bonuses, but for me not the most important thing I'll be taking home with me.
Courtney helped me to view life in a new way by Embodying My Intention; leading a life of intention; remaining grounded always and connecting to every action I take as I move through life. I'll admit, I was caught in the grind of life, and this experience and this beautiful teacher Courtney have given me the ability to enjoy, cherish, value, and see the good in all the things that life presents.
If you need greater purpose, if you know you have a higher calling and need help finding it, if you want to be in balance with all things, if you want to bring a serenity to your life that you feel you've lost, this trip and these lessons will allow you to blossom into a new form of being. A higher form of being.
This experience is worth so much more than money. A price tag cannot be placed on finding yourself. And that's what Courtney and this trip will help you achieve. Balance, bliss, serenity, a higher calling.
Courtney, you have my infinite gratitude for this priceless experience and I will be recommending it whenever I get the chance."
Ali Abouzalam, Owner of BeeNails
"Having to describe this trip in words will take away from the mystical experience but I will do my best!
Courtney is a fantastic teacher. She lead the yoga (asana), mediations, and workshops in a professional and loving way. It was a unique experience to receive professional teaching of information around the 8 limbs of yoga and ayurveda while simultaneously experiencing world class yoga and meditation sessions.
There were many times where I felt the presence of sacred divinity around me. It was like I was high on life and my soul was charging up to a higher frequency as each day passed.
The food there was delicious and nutritious. Although I am not a vegan at home I found the vegan dishes to be extremely tasty and filling. The balance of structured activities and down time to enjoy the beautiful farm and lake was perfectly precise.
The other attendees were incredible individuals and I am confident that some of them are now lifelong friends. I thoroughly enjoyed every single aspect of the Journey to the Sacred and will most definitely be attending another Wholesome Alchemy retreat lead by Courtney very soon!
Thank you for the life changing and soul charging experience! "
Erica Blackbear, Owner of Blackbear Awakening
"I absolutely loved the trip! It was a beautiful over all experience. I thought Courtney did an amazing job with everything from choosing the venue to creating the content of the retreat to honing all the details, etc etc.
I felt very held and supported before, during and after the retreat! The location was phenomenal. The people I met/connected with/re-connected with at the retreat were also amazing and I am just very very grateful for the experience.
I absolutely love yoga classes with Courtney. She is very knowledgeable and her classes are challenging while she also offers plenty of adjustments if needed. She is a phenomenal teacher. As a person she is warm, welcoming, caring and authentic. I would highly recommend her classes and the retreat!
Everything was just amazing- it’s really hard to put into words what I got out of the experience but it was incredible! I would highly recommend taking a Wholesome Alchemy retreat to anyone it will be soooo worth the investment! "
"I signed up for this retreat because I was overworked and stressed out from daily life.
I chose this retreat mostly because it was close to where I lived. I also like the itinerary and it seemed reasonably priced. The retreat offered some time to relax, unplug, and learn more about myself. Those are all things I needed.
I feel like learned more about myself through this retreat. I was only expecting to have a few days off work where I can do some yoga and relax. I got so much more out of the experience.
This was more than a retreat it's a clinic on happiness, which uses yoga as a tool. I think that happiness is a skill that many people were never taught and it's also a life long endeavor.
This retreat isn't a magic pill, but it will certainly point you in the right direction and teach you the needed skills. It's up to you to continue learning and growing on your journey.
I absolutely feel that this retreat was worth it! "
" Highly Recommended: Excellent teacher of Yoga, excellent leader of workshops and programs, beautiful person. What more could you want for a special Retreat?"
"I can say without hesitating that Courtney is my all-time favorite yoga instructor. She has an absolutely lovely, serene energy that always transports me to a peaceful, sacred place within myself. Her passion expresses itself with an enthusiastic ease that inspired to me to deepen my own practice and grow in ways I had not previously discovered.
She is -undoubtedly- an absolutely radiant person who gives herself generously and lovingly to her students and her friends. She is both a passionate, thoughtful altruistic-activist and a creative, playful force of nature - I am very grateful for my time spent in her classes and her company.
I'm certain anyone who knows Courtney will say their time in her presence (no matter how brief) is an absolute gift, I whole-heartedly encourage anyone who has the opportunity to fully-embrace any wisdom and teaching she has to offer to this world :)"
"Working with Courtney truly shifts your life. She has a way of reminding you of what you are capable of and who you truly are.
If you are needing a little push in your life to step into your greatness. To find the courage to bring your gifts into the world, then this is 100% for you.
Everything Courtney offers comes from the heart. This is her life's work, to guide others to the sacred. To inspire others and remind us.
I have yet to meet another teacher who does this is such a graceful way. If you are feeling called to join "Activated Alchemist", listen because this is an opportunity of a lifetime that you truly don't want to pass up."
"I have had the sacred opportunity to practice yoga under the instruction of Courtney, as well as just share life on occasion.
Since I’ve known her, on every occasion I’ve encountered her, she’s been very consistent in how she’s shown up; grounded, peaceful, kind, selfless, joyous, steadfast, open hearted, strong, courageous, authentic, humble.
It is these same qualities, and more, that carry over in Courtney’s passion for the art of yoga, and her excitement in sharing this medicine with everyone indiscriminately, that stands her with the best of them!
I am very thankful I had the pleasure and blessing to have known such a person, as yoga teacher and as friend."
Ashley Gardner, Owner of Green Gardens Residential
"Courtney's yoga classes changed my outlook on the practice of yoga. It was a whole body spiritual experience.
You left feeling challenged and strong with a sense of accomplishment.
The benefits of yoga are beyond measure physically but she also allowed me to get in touch with the inner me, that part of yourself that is often neglected and needs love too."
"Courtney has a great overall energy & positive outlook on life. Her life experiences support her shift in her life which makes me want to shift my life as well. I wish i lived closer to Courtney to have her in my life to be around her energy often.
Her personal experiences she shared & how she changed her life to evolve from those situations was inspirational. Every coach/mentor brings their own vibes to each experience I have gone through in a yoga retreat but this experience with Courtney really brought more spirituality than my past retreats which is what I really needed at the time.
Courtney brought a loving, caring, & spiritual energy during my Journey to the Sacred experience in Colombia. Her essence made me want to create & work towards a higher self.”
" Courtney’s classes are always wonderful. She sets and maintains an empowered, safe, and peaceful vibration. She gently gives personal attention where it’s needed, while inviting every student to be all they can.
From the chef she chose to the workshop material, she clearly took great care to ensure an uplifting and transformative experience for us. "
Dr. Jane Anetrini, Owner of Anetrini Chiropractic
"Courtney receives high marks from me as a yoga teacher. I have entrusted her with my students as she offers them the opportunity to participate in its body-centered spiritual practice. She is centered, inviting, and compassionate.
She gently introduces yoga to the new student and leads those familiar with yoga to deeper and more advanced experiences. Her discipline and practice are inspiring to me."
"Courtney is an EXCELLENT yoga teacher and workshop leader! I took her classes for several years when she lived in my community.
I love Courtney's energy as well as her expertise. And she is an exceptionally compassionate, joyful, and beautiful person. I encourage you to go for it!!. "
"It certainly was one of my most precious experiences I had. The place divine and Courtney an openhearted, spiritual and just wonderful teacher. Thank you! "
"Courtney is a sage and bright light who is delightful to work with.
She is by far my favorite yoga teacher and creates beautiful sacred, heart opening experiences.
Her presence anchors the Divine with powerful centering, healing and uplifting energy."
"Courtney is a delightful, warm person and teacher who is deeply skilled in yogic practices.
I can always rely on Courtney to create a practice space where my body can be open and receptive. Her expertise in Hatha yoga is a blessing to our world."
"I absolutely love Courtney’s yoga classes. She’s very knowledgeable and kind. I always feel so held and safe in her classes. Her classes are rejuvenating and centering. I highly recommend working with Courtney!"
Amanda Ray McCray
"Courtney is an incredible Being, teacher and friend.
She has demonstrated a powerful ability to create and hold sacred space acting as a vessel for Divine Love and Creativity.
All who join in this experience will be blessed and nourished!"
"I went to Courtney's yoga class for the first time, completely unaware of what I was about to experience. I had attended yoga for years and considered myself a high level yogi, which I was in regards to asana.
What Courtney taught me was something I had never touched into before. She taught me how to move within yoga (union), how to stay with my intention and my breath throughout my practice. To feel into the sensations and the essence within myself. To acknowledge that god being (she actually said this during class) within myself and within everything around me.
Honestly, it was life changing. Her classes taught me how to be connected both on and off of my mat. I can only imagine how INCREDIBLE this retreat will be.
If you are stuck, lost, hurt, alone....any limiting feeling....Courtney will remind you how valuable you are and guide you back to that pure place within yourself. She will remind you how important you are and how much you gifts are needed. Her classes are magic and she is medicine.
Chose yourself. Remember your greatness. I can say with 100% certainty you will not regret working with her. "
"I had the pleasure of taking some of Courtney's classes at the Arise Music Festival a few years back and attended her yoga classes ever since--I always find out where she is teaching and make an effort to be there.
She is an extremely inspiring being! (even though at times I can get a bit judgmental towards myself when I compare myself to her--which is the thief of joy). She has a wealth of knowledge and really brings it to life in a real and practical way. Anyone would resonate with her offerings as she has a way of making all of them extremely personal. She sees you and wants you to succeed, in a way I have not experienced before.
Everything she offers is for all of us, she truly wants us to remember who we are and embody our greatness.
I urge you to make space for her retreats in your life and your life will open up in a completely new way. She is truly a breath of fresh air and a gift to all that connect with her and witness her greatness ( which she will remind you is simply a reflection of yourself).
"This is one of those opportunities that you DO NOT WANT TO MISS. If you feel called in any way to work with her, do it.
Courtney is an inspiration-- beyond what words can explain.
She loves unconditionally and openly, she truly cares and listens, and she embodies all that she knows. Simply being in her presence will change your life. I have taken countless classes and courses with her and every year it is better than the last.
She is amazing. Say yes to her but more importantly say yes to YOU!"
Josh Branton, Owner of Be Free Yoga
"I had the privilege of meeting Courtney in India during our 300 hr Yoga Teacher Training. I don’t think I have ever seen a more dedicated student—-which is what makes her an excellent teacher.
It is all about her love for the practice and her willingness to dedicate herself to turning all her knowledge into wisdom.
She is a gift to yoga and to spirituality. She brings the roots through her classes and truly has the capability to guide you clearly on an internal journey. You don’t want to miss ANY opportunity to practice with her and gain her wisdom. "
"Courtney is absolutely AMAZING-- I couldn't be more excited to share my name with something. I took a workshop that she offered at the Arise Music Festival a few years back on an Intro to Ayurveda. I left it with a much clearer understanding of my body and my being.
After, I met with her personally and received a complete breakdown of foods and physical activities that serve my body!!!
She has a wealth of knowledge and wisdom and every time I have engaged with her I feel myself growing immensely. If you have the change to work with her, in anyway (yoga, meditation, ayurveda, retreats, courses) DO IT! It will be one of the best decisions you can make for yourself and your world."
Sara Marie, Owner of Body Flow Yoga
"I had the honor to be a student of Courtney’s many years ago when she was still towards the beginning of her yoga career.
Still to this day I have never met another teacher who is a more accurate guide to the sacred. She has a way of embodying what she is speaking to and invites all to join her.
If you have an opportunity to practice with her or learn from her— I would encourage it— beyond that, I would say if you don’t, you have missed an amazing opportunity."
"Courtney's classes are magic and she is medicine. She is open, understanding, compassionate. She loves completely and fully and welcomes everyone. She touches something deep within you and helps you remember who you truly are. She is a guiding light. She is not afraid of the darkness, or the shadow....she just shines her light so brightly that she guides others through it. "
"I had the honor of taking a workshop that Courtney lead in Australia last year and it was the most inspiring thing I have participated in thus far. She truly embodies what she is speaking about and comes filled up with passion and excitement.
Her energy is contagious and has you knowing that you can do anything you set your mind upon. She reminds you that anything is possible and that you can create your dreams.
Investing in Courtney is an invest in yourself and I can promise it is an investment worth making!"
"I couldn't recommend anything more. I had never taken a yoga class before stepping into one of Courtney's classes and I can say with 100% honesty, that my life changed because of it.
In the US yoga is treated as a workout, which Courtney still gives you, but her classes are so much more.
It feels weird admitting this but I was in tears multiple times during her class as something within me began to open up---and I am not a crier. She reminds you of what is within you and within us all.
I know that one day Courtney will be THE leading yoga teacher in America (who knows, maybe even the world) because she is wise, humble, clear, accurate, kind, compassionate, caring, and she brings all of that forth within you at the same time.
I have never met anyone like her. You will not have a single regret regarding choosing to work with Courtney. Go for it. Make the leap into a clearer and more aligned version of yourself!"
Finn Price, Owner of Priceless Presence
"All I can say is just say yes to this life changing opportunity. Trust yourself enough to know if this is a part of your path---and if it is, congratulations because you are about to have your life expanded, grounded, and changed in the most beautiful way. Courtney is everything and more-- your life can only become "better" be going on one of her retreats."
"Courtney has been my Ayurvedic Therapist for close to 4 years now and she is so wise. She always helps me recognize areas that are out of balance and how to adjust my food and fitness to support the lifestyle I truly want for myself.
She teaches, which is the best part. Her hope is to help her students learn this information so that they no longer need her--- she teaches you how to do this work on your own, which is the greatest gift she can give:)"
"When I first met Courtney I could feel how genuine and kind she was. I was relatively new to yoga and a bit nervous to attend classes (especially since her classes were ALWAYS FULL), however, she made me feel like I belonged, like we all belonged.
She is extremely knowledgable and no matter what level you are at-- she will meet you there. She is a gift to this world and an investment in Courtney is ultimately an investment in yourself."
"Courtney truly lives a life of service. I have had the honor of being her student and witnessing her growth over the past ten years and I am utterly blown away. This girl is a forever student, constantly growing and learning in all realms.
Every time you engage with her, somehow, she has become more than she was. The beautiful part is that her desire to learn and grow comes from a beautiful place of service---she only wants to be and offer the best that she can.
I mean come on, this company is a CLEAR EXAMPLE! She donates pretty much all (don't let that 15% fool you) of her profits to developing schools--she spends her free time volunteering-- she offers as much free things as she can--she creates everything with love and packages with the environment at the front of her mind.
I wish we had more people like Courtney in the world because I can promise you that it would be a better place if we did."
"A few years back I participated in a 7 month long transformational program called "Full Self Emergence", which was held at an intentional spiritual community in Colorado. Courtney was one of the lead faculty for this program and honestly she was the one that I resonated with the most.
She is real, authentic, and most importantly an embodiment of the teachings. I have never met anyone like her. She is changing the world in a BIG WAY---and she has only just begun.
If you are looking for a teacher that truly cares about you and truly sees all of the potential just below your surface--- Courtney is that teacher.
I have a feeling that she is about to blow up in a big way, so don't miss the opportunity to be with her before she becomes an untouchable haha----just kidding--she would not and could never become that. Her heart and her intentions are too pure :)"
"Courtney is an absolute breath of fresh air. She is authentic, compassionate, and kind. Truly the real deal.
She has been teaching spiritual programs for a minimum of 8 years now and is clear and accurate ALWAYS. You are worth it (and she is without a doubt)."
"I consider myself fortunate to work with Courtney in regards to her offerings in West Africa. She really is an example of the potential of human kind. We have a lot to learn from her.
Her language and way of being is universal, because her love is unconditional. I couldn't recommend anyone more."
"Courtney is the greatest yoga teacher I have ever encountered, and this is a big statement as I have been practicing for close to 10 years now and have my own certifications.
No matter what is happening in her life when she shows up on the mat, she is 100% present and aligned. As a being she is all heart, open and connected.
She is truly a gift to yoga, especially here in the west, as she embodies the true teachings both on and off the mat."
"Don't wait.....and certainly don't pass on this experience. As Courtney says, if you are ever going to fly you have to JUMP!
She is an embodiment and a successful example of this teaching. She has helped me level up in sooooo many ways, and she will do the same for you.
If you are ready to have a fuller and more connected life--- this will fast track you. Hold on because it will be an EPIC ride."
"Honestly, Courtney is the greatest yoga teacher I have ever practiced with--and one of the most genuine caring humans on this planet. She is an investment worth making--because it is ultimately an investment in yourself.
Seriously-- trust yourself if you feel called to work with her, she is pure magic and invites you into the spiritual in a way no one else can. Your life will change, I promise."
"If you are wanting a truly spiritual experience--- Courtney is HANDS DOWN the best yoga teacher out there. She shows you that yoga is so much more than a physical practice-- truly an embodiment practice and a spiritual experience."
"I am utterly blown away at the prices of her retreats. It is so obvious that this is a heart based offering for Courtney. She is worth SO MUCH MORE but always offers at a level that anyone can join in. Her value is not even touched at this price point, but I recognize that she is simply making her gifts reachable for everyone.
I have been on my spiritual journey for close to 50 years now and have yet to meet a teacher as capable of creating sacred space as Courtney.
She will meet you where ever you are so don't let fear stop you."
"Court is rad. She is fun and friendly and really fucking wise. I have learned so much from her over the years, even if it has been from afar for the past couple.
She is also unique and has a style completely her own, which makes sense because she has more real life experience than anyone I know.
She helps you move in the world from a place of flexibility and strength. If you are ready to level up, then she can help you do that."
"I started taking yoga classes with Courtney a few years back and she completely ruined yoga for me--IN THE ABSOLUTE BEST WAY! For the first time in my life I experienced yoga in a sacred way, through her guidance.
I have yet to find a teacher who even comes close to what she offers. She is a true embodiment of the practice and is an absolute gift to the world."
"I have taken classes and workshops with Courtney for years now, along with many other teachers.
Courtney has always been my favorite and assists in guiding me to such a sacred place within myself. "
