Meet Courtney

Courtney Loughney, M.Ed, E-RYT, YACEP
Founder of Petite Yogi

After the birth of her first child, Courtney struggled to find yoga for her and her daughter. Courtney completed her children’s yoga certification through ChildLight Yoga and in 2013 Petite Yogi was born bringing yoga and mindfulness to children six weeks old through teens.

“In our fast paced, instantly gratifying world, it is more important than ever to give children the opportunity to unplug and unwind. When we can find stillness and quiet we don’t need devices, we can find the answers within ourselves.”

Courtney has blended her background in special education, behavior therapy and over a decade of teaching yoga to create a program that is designed specifically for children. The program is always evolving as we all are.

Courtney lives in Wilmington, Delaware with her husband and three children.
