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
