"Practice and all is coming" - Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
Chelsey Korus has been teaching yoga since the age of 15 and has been an avid life long learner in numerous movement practices, including: Anusara, Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Acro, as well as martial arts, free form dance, and ballet.
Along with an exceptional depth of practice, Chelsey is a triple major with degrees in Dance, Theater, and Vocal Performance.
A decade of learning and teaching around the world has led her to design, AWAKE with Chelsey Korus - a "total package lifestyle" around SOUL - SPIRIT - ENVIRONMENT. The concept of AWAKE is a driving force in her life, inspired by not wanting to live another second asleep. She has designed these practices to help people awaken to their moment, and have the tools to step into their wholeness.
She believes that Yoga is the one thing that makes her heart return back to its original state, understanding it's a process, a returning, a deep love.
Chelsey Korus is quickly becoming one of yoga's foremost teachers and philosophers. She's been featured in PopSugar, Prevention Magazine, Yoga Journal, Women's Fitness, Mantra Magazine, Fitness Magazine and Shape.
