Calvin Corzine’s training as a yoga instructor has primed him to offer a well-rounded practice, reflecting a diversity of styles. Ashtanga, Iyengar and Vinyasa come together in Calvin’s teaching. His classes and workshops are asana and movement-forward, emphasizing guidance of the physical practice of yoga rather than a dogmatic focus. There’s no drama in Calvin’s classes. His anatomical instruction stays approachable, using basic language that students of all levels can connect to. Calvin teaches accompanied by loud, upbeat music, using creative, intelligent flow sequences that assure you’ll never take the same class twice. Challenge is a staple in his classes. Expect to get a sweat on. Calvin will push you to the next level; trust that you will be led in a direction that will open and strengthen the body safely and deeply. Calvin offers an uncommon level of presence, always engaged with his students, helping them reach their goals, explore their limits, giving expert adjustments, and taking an experience from vigorous challenge to a feeling of peace, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Practice with Perspective approaches familiar poses in a way that will help you find a sense of strength and focus in your practice. Expect to change your perspective on what is considered “basic” in yoga! This class is broken into 3 parts: the first part with a blindfold (increasing focus and attention to subtle movements), the second with blankets and props, emphasizing strength and boosting focus, and the third taught free of props, honing into increased presence in these yoga postures. Leave this class with expanded insight into your own body and practice.
To say this class will be fun and sweaty is an understatement. Throughout this vinyasa sequence, discover revolutionary ways of moving from one posture to another. Move beyond traditional transitions, heighten your attention to alignment, and find familiar poses feeling fresh and exciting through the experience of feeling new ways to move in and out of them. Expect a memorable and fun playlist.
This workshop will go over a variety of arm balances utilizing props, such as: blocks, straps and blankets. The use of props helps to create proper alignment, not just in standing poses, but in balancing poses as well. This workshop is perfect for those seeking to build a strong foundation to effectively move through an arm balance practice. Students will walk away with a more refined alignment and stability in their practice, and teachers can apply my instruction to their arm balance based classes. This workshop will help you create proper balance and focus, while on your hands.
There are many times a full range of yoga props is not available to us–traveling or at home–but there is usually a bit of wall space we can take advantage of. This class allows you to learn to use the wall as a tool to work on your alignment, give feedback on what parts of your practice need attention, and finding ways to work from there. This informative class will challenge you both mentally and physically.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Calvin Corzine grew up in a community submerged in yoga. An athlete from an early age, sports held center focus. Calvin’s love for sports continues–he’s a die hard Lakers fan who never shies from excitement in the physical world, surfing, practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and pilates. It was in his 20s that Corzine discovered his own draw to the practice of yoga, leading him to his current path as a teacher. Calvin teaches asana and movement-forward classes that are a blend of Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga, and Iyengar. His own studies began under teacher, mentor and good friend Vinnie Marino. Corzine has completed over 500 hours of training under the guidance of Vinnie Marino, Jenny Aurthur, Jesse Schein, Sharath Jois, and continues to building his knowledge of yoga under senior teachers (including Lisa Walford, Maty Ezraty, Sonya Cottle and Manuso Manos) in Mysore, India, and locally in LA. Corzine teaches yoga in Los Angeles, leads retreats in picturesque beachside locations, and offers his workshops worldwide.
