Hathavidya teacher Jeanne Korn speaks with us about the 200 hour course returning to Bread and Yoga this April
B&Y: What will you be teaching in the 200 Hour training?
JK: I’ll be teaching Therapeutic-Restorative Yoga, where I blend gentle postures with guided meditation and lots of hands on healing. This style is especially effective for those recovering from or living with injury, illness, or trauma. Therapeutic-Restorative Yoga reduces stress and brings a natural balance back into our yoga practice and our lives!
B&Y: How would you describe your teaching style?
JK: I teach classical Yoga through the filter of my own heart’s wisdom.
B&Y: How did you first become involved with yoga? How/What/Where was your first class?
JK: My first class was in New York 15 years ago. The sign up sheet was full, so I knew there must be something to this Yoga thing… and having no clue what Ashtanga Yoga was, I crashed the class. (What’s a mat??) It was truly humbling and beyond thrilling. It changed my life and continues to every day.
B&Y: How did you first become involved with Hathavidya?
JK: I met Will Duprey several years ago at Liberation Yoga where I taught. His classes always left me feeling great, thinking more expansively and truly inspired. So when he told me he was leading advanced teacher trainings, I signed right up and I’m now thrilled to be teaching with Hathavidya.
B&Y: What’s different about this teacher training from other 200 Hour trainings and why should students choose this particular one?
JK: Hathavidya is steeped in the wealth of the ancient traditions, sharing valuable knowledge that has been passed down through the ages. It brings together master teachers from different backgrounds to provide a well-rounded and diverse experience for students. The training provides a strong foundation of knowledge as well as powerful confidence in your own individual practice, which will fuel your future teaching career and your life.
B&Y: What are you looking forward to most about teaching in this 200 Hour module?
JK: Meeting new people who are interested in deepening their knowledge and challenging their Yoga practice. This will be my first experience at Bread & Yoga, which I’m very excited about!
B&Y: Anything else you’d like to add?
JK: My favorite quote from Annis Nin says it all for me;
“And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
