Awareness Yoga at The Ivy House

Balance your body, heal your heart

Awareness Yoga at the Ivy House is for any  ‘body.’ Profoundly relaxing and physically healing Awareness Yoga decreases the sympathetic/stress response in the physiology while increasing the rest and digest or parasympathetic nervous system creating optimal health and balance in the body. With hip openers, spinal twists and core opening, Awareness Yoga for the most part is done on the floor and appropriate for all levels including first timers and long time practitioners of yoga.

Yoga means union of the individual mind with universal consciousness.The root of the word yoga in English is the biblical word ‘yoke.’

Corrine has been teaching Awareness Yoga aka Bliss Yoga for over 25 years and originally studied Svaroopa Yoga with Rama Berch aka Swami Nirmalananda in San Diego, California. In 1998 she became the Founding owner of House of Bliss, a yoga/meditation studio in Nashville before moving to southern California in 2001. It was at that time that Corrine started working for Deepak Chopra at his world renowned Center in San Diego, California. Corrine was involved in the development of the Chopra Center Yoga Certification program and directed the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga program before moving back to Nashville. Corrine currently studies with Saul David Raye and continues deepening her yoga journey. Offering Yoga Teacher Training studies in the gentle Awareness Yoga that she has been immersed in for almost 30 years.

Corrine’s spiritual journey also took her to India with Deepak Chopra in early 2000 where she fell in love with the culture and the people. After traveling to India for several months every year, she met her husband Satya in South India in 2007. The couple now have an Orphanage of 30 children and a small hotel in the holy city of Tiruvanammalai, the home of Ramana Maharishi Ashram and the ancient sacred mountain Arunachala. The couple take groups in India every February and love sharing their India with others.

    Awareness Yoga Immersion YTT
    (Yoga Teacher Training)

    The Awareness Yoga Immersion is not only a training in a deeply profound and healing yoga but also a retreat and release for your own body. Awareness Yoga is different then other Restorative Yoga style and provides a unique understanding of the spine that I have not found in any other style in my 30 years of yoga study. Not to say that it is the best or the only way, but for me, it certainly has been the most profound yoga I have ever experienced and that is why I have a passion for sharing it with others.

    Whether you want to attend to learn more about anatomy, with specifics on the spine and the parasympathetic nervous system and helping problem bodies with Awareness Yoga or you wish to heal your own body, this yoga is for beginners and advanced yogis alike. With Colleen Brophy MD of Vascular Surgery and Yogi herself teaching the anatomy and physiology portions of the training, this 50 hour training will give you the confidence you need to help many different body shapes, sizes and problems.

    Embodyment with Corrine
    (Private Yoga Therapy)

    Embodyment is a hands on healing therapy done fully clothed. It lasts about an hour and sends the individual into a profound state of healing. It is not energy work but utilizes each person’s own para-sympathetic nervous system which is the healing system in the body. One embodyment has the same healing affects on the nervous system as six weeks of Awareness yoga.

    “Embodyment is the most effective healing technique I have ever done or had done on me.”
