Corina Benner Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Corina Benner, took her first yoga class in 1992 (although she spent much of her childhood standing on her head!), and has been teaching yoga since 1999. Viewing asana practice as an entry-point to self-study, Corina weaves the ancient tenets of yoga philosophy into her teaching, inspiring students to discover how this ancient practice remains relevant today in their own lives both on and off the mat. Her positive vibrations and contagious optimism empower students of all levels to practice with enthusiasm, while her detailed instruction and intelligent sequencing create a safe space for students to explore the landscapes of their body, mind, heart and soul. Certified to teach by Cyndi Lee at OM Yoga Center in NYC, Corina has been strongly influenced by the precision of Rodney Yee?s teaching, the inspiration and heart-centeredness of Shiva Rea, and the profound importance of the bones and breath taught by Paul Grilley.
