Awareness Yoga 

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 30 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.

The Awareness Yoga Immersion Training is held over two profoundly restorative weekends. I tell people that one of the best reasons to take a training such as this is so that you know how to fix your own body. I remember being very excited before my very first training back in 1995, to be able to come home and do yoga on my own at home. Once you feel it in your own body, only then can you start to think about sharing it with others. It is a 45 hour Immersion Training held at the Ivy House.

Testimonials from past participants in the Immersion:
From Dr. Eddi: As a naturopathic doctor, my purpose in participating in the Immersive Teacher Training yoga program at the Ivy House was to enhance and deepen my personal yoga practice. However I quickly came to realize that this had a ripple effect because I teach many of the elements/poses to my patients almost every day in my private practice clinic in Canada. I never had planned to teach yoga but it’s somehow found a beautiful expression in my practice. Corrine is an amazing teacher and friend and made every moment exceptional. I have studied many yoga teachings over the years and I truly feel this yoga practice fits perfectly in my lifestyle.

From Kurt W: The Awareness yoga Immersion was been a huge turning point in my physical and emotional well being. Old injuries that had been an issue for years have resolved over the course of a few months practice and I use the techniques and poses almost daily to take care of aches and pains or to loosen up after strenuous physical activity. The emotional stress that I’ve held in my body disappears after an Awareness yoga session as well! I’m deeply grateful for Corrine for introducing me to this profound healing practice.

Whether you want to attend as a deep retreat for your own body or you want to learn to help others, this yoga is for beginners and advanced yogis alike. This 45-hour training will give you the confidence and skills you need to help all types of people relax and find profound states of healing within themselves.

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.”
