Hey, Court & Chrissy joggin’ beside ya over here...
We’re the full hearts pumping behind MNDSIGHT, where we help humans de-stigmatize mental health… And demystify mindfulness, while we're at it.
We believe in carving out cozy (and occasionally luxurious) safe spaces for people to connect, be vulnerable and walk away with a new self-love practice, even if you think mindfulness is just another buzzword.
Because here's what we see every day…
… People like you, who expand a week's worth of energy by Wednesday, because the “hustle” is hard...
… People like you, who know that there's a better way to quash that inner voice that's always making you question your every move...
… People like you, who know about this "mindfulness" thing, but who don't want another cookie-cutter meditation routine, yoga practice or green smoothie recipe...
Spoiler alert: your brain is One of A Kind.
…And your mindfulness practice should be, too!
But it doesn't have to involve a 10-day silent retreat, or meditating for 48 minutes every single day. It’s definitely not what you’ll find in a spontaneous yoga class, either.
To get even an inch closer to a brain that gets hopped up on clarity, "mindfulness" can even take as long as it takes you to floss. A new habit, if you will.
We’re all about helping you integrate some mental floss into your life – in a way that works and serves only YOU.
So, who are the faces behind the dental mental hygiene?
The Humble Hustler
Founder and Mindfulness Teacher
Chrissy is the type of person you'll find yourself suddenly sharing that one really embarrassing story with, because there's hardly a soul that can’t open up around her. She’s a curiously kind creature, and a natural listener that welcomes simultaneous expansion with her loved ones. “OMG, I can’t believe I just shared that with you!” ← says everyone who meets her.
When she's not pouring friends a cup of green tea (or a glass of red wine), she's likely researching the next trend in mindfulness, eating salad for breakfast (because she honest-to-goodness, just loves eating her greens), sharing the behind-the-scenes of her brain on Instagram… Or making her entrance on a stage to chat about the intersection between mindfulness and neuroscience, Ellen-Degeneres-style.
Her foray into the wellness world was triggered by the end of another: a career playing competitive soccer. Once she swapped chalk-lined fields for a 9-5, she was left with molehills of self-doubt, anxiety and a whole lotta body problems – like renal failure and broken bones – that morphed in mountains that her mind had to move.
That's when she realized she had to swap negative self-talk for the power of positive thinking, if she wanted to create the kind of resilience she needed to move forward (thanks, psych degree!). By diving deep into learning and teaching yoga as well as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), she naturally gravitated towards fusing mindfulness and neuroscience into her everyday life.
The result: outrageously pushing her boundaries, and saying “HELL YES!” instead of “why me?”
That’s what fueled her with the positive self-talk that helped her to host a week of yoga and mindfulness for Red Bull, design elite experiences for athletes at Lululemon and now, rock the influencer program at Saje Wellness. The vibrant red thread between it all? She’s mentally weight-lifted her own anxiety throughout the process and built strong muscles to deeply understand herself, the wellness world and what the humans of today really need: the total opposite of a one-size-fits-all approach to mindfulness.

The Logistical Larry
Co-Founder + Resident Photographer + Partnerships
“I think I wanna go to Mexico next week. You in?” ← that’s what Courtney is most likely to text her best friend on a Friday night, and says everything about her: she lives to be wild, spontaneous and spirited. She’s a passport with unlimited pages, ready to stamp one life experience after another without hesitation.
That confidence, in fact, is what she’s always tried to help her photography clients (yup, she does that too) with: she wants everyone to feel unapologetically comfortable in their skin – mental and physical.
Whether it’s making people double over with the laughs-till-it-hurts during personal portrait sessions on MNDSIGHT’s retreats, leading initiatives like the Olympic Program at Lululemon or managing strategic partnerships at Saje Wellness, Courtney is the ultra-wholistic communicator. She believes in not holding back. Her glass is always half full, and if yours isn’t… She’s always there with a refill.
With MNDSIGHT, she’s the brains behind the candles lit as soon as you walk into their retreats, fresh tulips in the corner, the eye masks under your pillow and the cozy sweater laid out on your bed. Showing up for yourself deserves a high five! She’s always setting you up for a win and cheering you for getting your brain into a spa like the hype girl she is.

Together – Chrissy, Courtney and their team are hell-yes-bent on helping humans learn how to tap into self-awareness, cultivate a custom mindfulness practice that works for them and hold safe spaces for support and accountability throughout the process.
MNDSIGHT CORE VALUES:
They believe in showing the light and full spectrum of possibility in every situation. By staying true to transparency, they inspire their community to do the same – in all facets of their lives. MNDSIGHT doesn't hold back from sharing the tears, the occasional dark cloud or the silly laughs and moments of joy, because that’s REAL life.
With their knowledge, their time and their energy. They lead communities wholeheartedly towards being more gentle with their beliefs, their minds and their bodies.
They place double the faith in the power of possibility, their community and that everything has a lesson to teach them. Even if it's the F-word, Failure!
Seriously, this happens all the time... They get stuff done, but they know how to take a break to have a totally unserious conversation. If they’re not laughing or finding the lightness in everything, they’re moving on to the next thing.
To hold a safe, welcoming, accessible space for burned-out humans to unapologetically accept that it's okay to not be okay – and flip the negative self-talk script into roots for personal growth.
By bringing a positive light to conversations that often get swept under our yoga mats, MNDSIGHT doles out the digital gold stars for treating yo' brain right. They recognize that it's not easy, and they love to reward their people for it (because it’s not a tangible outcome, like zero cavities from diligently brushing your teeth for years), by sharing their collective wins and challenges with their community.
They help others embrace their true nature in the process to show up authentically, achieve peace of mind and gather the tools they need to ground themselves in their everyday life (without it being an overwhelming undertaking).
