Chelsey Korus

Chelsey Korus’ teaching and movement philosophy comes from her passion for life and the inspiration she finds from nature. She approaches life through the lens of constant learning and loves to share the wisdom she’s gathered along her journey in hopes of helping others become AWAKE; to be aware and present in their own lives.

She began teaching yoga at age 15 and is proficient in numerous movement practices: Anusara, Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Acro, as well as martial arts, free form dance and ballet. Aside from an exceptional depth of practice, Chelsey has bachelors 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 my life… I don’t want to live another second asleep. These are the practices I’ve designed to help people awaken to their moment, and have the tools to step into their wholeness.”

Chelsey’s current partnerships with Wanderlust Festivals and Wanderlust TV, as well as Adidas and Stella McCartney, are helping to garner more attention toward her AWAKE philosophy. Over the course of her career she has been featured on PopSugar, the Kelly and Michael Show, Elle Magazine, Prevention Magazine, Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, Women’s Health, Yoga Journal, GNC’s “Respect Yourself” campaign and YogaGlo.

“She has an incredibly powerful presence, it’s contagious. You cannot help leaving her classes feeling like you are ready to take on anything.” — Yoga2Life Radio

Class Offerings

 

Pipe Dream:
It is good for our souls to yearn for something, to have a pipe dream, a wild idea. This class will focus on your yearning for personal meaning. The kind of yearning that pulls you toward your heart — into your wild nature and deepest desires. A sweat-filled practice with forward folds to allow for deep listening, shoulder and hip openers to release stagnant energy. Heart openers to feel a more expansive sense of self and a guided meditation to finish. Emerge with the clarity that comes from spending 90 minutes in a beautiful dream state where everything is possible.
You’re Here for a Reason:
The deal is YOU MATTER. There is a reason you are here in this place, at this time. You didn’t laugh it off or dismiss it, you followed the call. Discover that reason and more in this Vinyasa flow class centered around twists, hips, and a touch of the unknown.
It Was Never Yours to Carry, Lay it Down:
This class will have both flow and meditation. You may think of it as an active surrender with stillness that requires steady attention. Working from the ground up, you will clear the body of stagnant energy. If you discover anything that no longer serves you, this class will assist you in laying it down for good.
Now it’s Like This:
You are an impermanent creature. We all are. Human beings are gifted in the way we are able to morph and change. This class will focus on our ability to shape-shift both in our minds and in our bodies. Learn how to be content with what is, and not need it to be any other way. Arm balances, inversions, and other challenges may come up, but not without a proper build. All levels welcome. (Ending class) Beg/int. 5-10 mins talk
