Trained by Deepak Chopra, Saul David Raye and Rama Berch (aka Swami Nirmalananda), Corrine has over 27 years experience in the healing arts and is known as the stress relief guru to the stars of Nashville. Specializing in helping people find balance in their lives through yoga, meditation and mindfulness, Corrine created The Ivy House as a community gathering space for like-minded individuals. She has a passion for helping people find balance in their lives.
In 1991 Corrine served as the president to the Transcendental Meditation Siddhi Program and in 1997 she founded The House of Bliss in Nashville, Tennessee, a center which offered music, meditation, yoga, and mind/body healing. She later developed and headed up the Chopra Center Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga program, known as Chopra Yoga.
As the co-founder of Global Watch Foundation, Corrine is the Mommy of 23 orphaned children in South India where she and former partner Sathyan Gopalan operate a Children’s Home.
Corrine’s life is one of service, she connects with her heart and offers hope and inspiration to everyone she comes in contact with.
Whether it is through gentle yoga, meditation, one on one Soul Guidance or healing session, Corrine connects with her heart and feels what each student/client needs.
Utilizing the ancient techniques of yoga, meditation, combined with modern ideas such as earthing, organic gardening and non-violent communication, The Ivy House is a place to heal and learn to BE. Isn’t that funny, that we have to learn how to relax?
We like to describe The Ivy House as a modern day ashram. By definition an ashram is a place to go inward, grow spiritually, receive tools for growth among a like minded community. An ashram in India would typically also include a guru, and yet the word guru simply means teacher. The Ivy House Founders/staff provide support to people of all backgrounds.
We live in a very fast paced society and most people are living in frenetic numbness. Days, weeks and then years go by and then health problems start to come to the surface until you can no longer ignore your body. Most people no matter where they come from or how confident and successful they may seem, have a deep sense of unhappiness, unease and unworthiness. The only place where peace lies is deep within. No matter what your background or belief system we help find what works best for you to find inner peace.
The Founders of The Ivy House are dedicated to assisting people who want to learn, who want to slow down and who want to grow and live a more conscious and mindful life. So who are we? The founders of the Ivy House are Corrine Champigny, and Colleen Brophy MD.

PLEASE DON’T PARK ON THE STREET EVER AS THERE IS PLENTY OF PARKING BOTH IN THE FRONT AND BACK DRIVEWAYS, the back drive is just pass the driveway that is on Croley, just next to the fence. Then just walk up through the back gate and into our garden and back yard! Directions from I40W. Take the White Bridge Rd exit off 40 West (make sure you don’t take the Briley exit in the new construction as that takes you past Robertson), and make a right and then immediate left onto Robertson. Don’t miss Robertson or you will have 3 miles before you can turn around. Come down about one mile until you see very large white Deluxe Made Cleaners sign on left and that street is Croley, make a left. The Ivy House is on the corner of Croley and Ivy and I have a driveway entrance from both streets.
