Day 67 LA-Exhale-Seane Corn

All amped up with anticipation, we entered the illustrious Santa Monica studio, EXHALE, where dramatic artwork of the “Superstars of Yoga” that teach in this celebrated space, are lined along its famous walls. Immediately, we recognized the stunning, poster sized photo of Seane Corn, who inspired the YoYos in our “worn out and replaced 3 times” beloved collection of Bryan Kest Power Yoga Series as the super-strong, “white leotard-ed”, beautiful bendy student.  Excited were we, that tonight, live and in person, we were to take class from that “front and center” yogini, turned world renowned instructor/activist, in this vibrant L.A. studio.

Tryin’ to be chill when Seane entered, lookin’ absolutely identical to the way she did in those mid 90’s tapes (sans the white leotard); the YoYo’s somehow easily relaxed during the commencing total body integration.  We couldn’t help but once again be inspired by this skilled, eagle-eyed teacher who immediately scoped out the packed class and built our amazing practice based on the needs of this individual clan.  Seems tonight’s band of yogis started with tight little “hammies” that Seane wasn’t goin’ to let us leave with. As she worked us through every spiral imaginable in those stretched to capacity legs, the YoYo’s were pretty sure; we might walk out of this class, 2” taller with hanumanasana (crotch on floor splits) as part of our daily practice.  Seane beautifully built this sequence, step by step, preppin’ each muscle for the next more advanced move, making the surprising abilities of our own YoYo legs, unrecognizable.   The YoYo’s loved the way this giving teacher freely offered her endless experienced mental and physical adjustments to every well cared for yogi in this supported space.

Seems the studio is only the beginning to Seane’s generosity as she has taken her yoga “off the mat” to work with Annie Lennox’s SING Project to bring awareness to AIDS in Africa, Ashley Judd to fight YouthAIDS in India and most recently, teemed with Hala Khouri and Suzanne Sterling to start a remarkable organization.  Recently launched, “Off the Mat Into the World” offers in-depth workshops for searchin’ yogis to help them discover their unique purpose and inspire them to use their special gifts to give back to their local or global communities.  What a stellar concept from this… most inspirin’ teacher!
