Owner of Saybrook Soul Sweat. Dog mom to a golden retriever, Ollie, who often frequents the studio. Lover of all things yoga and all things CT Shoreline!
I opened the studio in 2017. I was 22, fresh out of college, with a little teaching experience and even less business experience. Really, I had no clue what I was doing. But I loved yoga, I lived yoga, I needed yoga. So I thought that maybe, some people on the shoreline might love, live, and need yoga too. That’s the thing about yoga - it has the ability to influence your life in such a healthy, positive way that you just have to share it. I do yoga, I teach yoga, because without it I can’t do anything else. Yoga teaches you how to use your body, breath, and mind to build a loving relationship with yourself and the world around you. It teaches you to be present, and when you are present, you are timeless.
From 2017 - today, we’ve grown from a brand new studio with one student to a thriving, strong, inspiring community of thousands of students. We have new practitioners through advanced and aim to create a space where everyone feels welcomed, supported, and loved as they explore and develop a yoga practice. This community has supported me through some of the toughest challenges, especially enduring a pandemic, and they will be there to support you too. We are family here, and we cannot wait for you to be part of it! More yoga, more love!
"Old Saybrook CT is one lucky town to have this yoga studio.! Saybrook Soul and Sweat is a welcoming, clean and well designed yoga studio. The Air quality, sound system, the yoga studio itself are all terrific. All the instructors I have found to be dedicated to helping everyone self improve. Encouraging modifications to include everyone. After the class I do love the smoothie and tea bar. Keep up the great work..."

"Hands down, best yoga studio! If practicing yoga ever comes up in conversation with friends, acquaintances, etc. I always rave about SSS and urge people to come check it out for themselves. I have been to several yoga studios over the years and SSS, by far, is the best. Courtney, all the instructors, the space itself, the workshops offered, now Soul Nutrition!, and just the way in which the classes are guided are exceptional and my absolute favorite!!
And thank you for taking such considerate and extreme care of us all during this pandemic!"
