After practicing yoga for over ten years, the founders of Compassion Yoga Project joined together and asked "how can we share this with others?" This organization is founded on the belief that if you build it, they will come. The transformative benefits of yoga are best described by it's practitioners. Here, at Compassion Yoga Project, we invite you to become one of them in the privacy of your own home, in your workplace or in group settings.
Using tools including yoga, meditation and relaxation techniques, we aim to spread compassion throughout the world.
Sharing compassion through yoga for everyone.
Courtney Casady, RYT
Founder and Executive Director
Growing up in a small town in the middle of the recession I always dreamed of living my definition of an extraordinary life, one filled with material possessions, a big house and fancy cars. I spent the first 20 years of my life tireless perusing this dream, graduating from university early with a double major, three minors and looking towards the next step. In the midst of all of this, I had developed an irregular heart beat, gained 40lbs, began to experience extreme bursts of anxiety and was having difficulty creating lasting personal relationships.
Then, I found yoga. By helping me to uncover the power of a tool even simpler than getting on the yoga mat- my breath, yoga helped me to understand and appreciate myself and the world in a whole new way. After finishing graduate school with degrees in non-profit management and public policy, I decided to become a certified instructor in order to help share yoga with anyone who is seeking a change, anyone who is feeling restless, or anyone who needs help with their health, lifestyle or happiness. I truly believe that yoga, meditation and mindfulness can help you to uncover the best parts of life.
