Courtney Mastsain
Yoga Teacher


When Courtenay discovered SUP while surfing in Portugal five years ago, she immediately recognized the possibility for combining her passions for being in nature, water sports, and yoga. Courtenay loves how SUP yoga gives a totally unique and beautiful perspective of her adopted home on Lake Lugano, and she is so happy to share this amazing experience with others.

An enthusiastic and encouraging teacher, Courtenay has experience guiding a range of students. Everyone can enjoy yoga on a paddleboard; beginners find it a fun introduction to a practice that benefits body, mind, and spirit and experienced yogis will love how it accelerates your asana practice and provides a whole new set of opportunities to challenge yourself. Courtenay speaks English and some Italian.
