Corinna’s classes have been called deeply intentional, all-inclusive, poetic and supportive. She creates an atmosphere in which students are encouraged to attend closely to sensation and breath. Her instruction empowers students to cultivate dialogue with their own bodies for a practice in service of healing and function rather than aesthetic or postural achievement. Corinna offers a healthy dose of alignment cueing while supporting students in self-exploration of posture and movement. All bodies are different and no asana is one size fits all. That being said, expect the unexpected.
Corinna’s classes are playful, challenging and crafted to surprise students into shedding fear of trying something new. The physical practice is just the tip of the iceberg. Breath-work, chanting, philosophy, poetry, and plenty of humor are sprinkled throughout for a comprehensive and transformative experience. Corinna has most recently plunged into the wondrous world of yin yoga which has quickly stolen her heart and shifted her approach to yoga’s physical practice. Certified at the 500-hour level, Corinna has studied with and been inspired by many of the incredible teachers in New York’s Hudson Valley including Sondra Loring, Leigha Butler, Jacquie Nash, Kelly Kamm, Raghunath Cappo and Will LeBlanc among others. Corinna teaches for nOMad always at OM’s online studio, teacher trainings and various events curated by founder Phoebe Miller. Additionally, she and Leigha Butler co-lead Be Love, a meditation and yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico with a mission to nourish and spark spiritual warriors, super souldiers and selfless servants around the world.
