Cortney Singleton, AP, RYT

Cortney Singleton, originally from Fair Hill, MD. She has an integrative approach to wellness, fitness and holistic healing. She received her master’s degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at The Florida College of Integrative Medicine. Every “body” she encounters receives a specialized treatment, often a combination yoga of all levels, acupuncture, Thai yoga and Chinese massage, cupping, pranayama (breath work) and meditation. “Chinese medicine is a practice of treating the root of “dis”ease. Yoga is a discipline of integrating mind, body and soul. Live well, breathe deep and love deeper. Every day is a gift from God. I can only hope to positively influence and inspire each soul I meet along life long journey of natural healing.” Cortney has created a lifestyle to support this mission statement. When she is not in the studio teaching or practicing yoga or the treatment room, you can bet she is riding her horse or working on her family’s horse rescue farm or surfing somewhere along the Florida coastline.
