Seane Corn: Her road from the Life Cafe
Seane Corn's classes combine a vigorous, fluid vinyasa or "flow" style with emphasis on intention and prayer — a mix she says encourages an inner journey toward self-awareness, acceptance and empowerment.
Seane Corn has been featured in magazines including Glamour, Self and Allure and has become one of the most sought-after yoga teachers in America. Her clients have included Sting, Heather Graham, Ashley Judd, Drew Barrymore, David Duchovny, Elizabeth Berkley, Sally Field and Dr. Caroline Myss.
Seane was first introduced to yoga during the late '80s, as a teenager waiting tables at David Life's Life Cafe in New York City. She became close with David and with her fellow waitress Sharon Gannon, who together with Life later opened the Jivamukti Yoga Centers.
When David and Sharon immersed themselved in yoga and left the country for intensive study, Seane's interest was piqued. In a moment of realization after a yoga class one night in New York, Seane felt a transformation percolating. Later she would talk about how her yoga, meditation and spiritual studies empowered her to come to terms with obsessive-compulsive disorder and better accept herself and the world at face value.
Her life path began to take shape.
In 1992, Seane moved to Los Angeles and began studying at Yoga Works in Santa Monica, where she learned from some of the most renowned teachers in the country including Patricia Walden, Rodney Yee, Richard Freeman, Eddie Modestini, Tim Miller, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller, Lisa Walford, Erich Schiffman, John Friend and Shandor Remete. She also trained in India under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and studied with the spiritual teacher Ammachi Barbara Soloman and Mona Miller. She is a longtime student of the chakras, their psychological components and how the body is affected by blocked or repressed emotion. Exploring the work of Caroline Myss and Anodea Judith, she began applying these concepts to the physical yoga practice, choreographing routines that could stimulate and open energy blockages and open doors for more people to experience the benefits of mind-body practices on a deeper level.
Seane teaches at Yoga Works in Santa Monica, Calif., and travels extensively teaching workshops, conferences and retreats internationally. She is a devoted supporter of programs for at-risk girls and women and has joined with her friend Ashley Judd in supporting fundraising and awareness-campaigns for the educational nonprofit YouthAIDS.
