Corey Story is a qualified Gita Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga Teacher, Myotherapist and Remedial Massage therapist. Corey has been moving his body across many disciplines since the age of 10!
Corey’s first experience of Yoga came in the 80’s when he first started acrobatics and tumbling where the coach would move the kids through Vinyasa styled salute to the sun sequences to warm up and condition the body. Corey then continued to pursue a variety of yoga styles including Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar and Hatha throughout the 90’s and 2000’s. Corey has also studied dance and performance and continues to study movement and functional body strength through various schools and if anything just loves to move!
Coreys initial Hatha Gita Yoga teaching qualification was completed in 2009. The training was an in depth 900 hours in length over 18 months. Since this time he has studied extensively across the globe with renowned teachers and continues to travel around the world to learn from them. Since graduating Corey has taken up further Anatomy study, Yin Yoga and Chakra Theory with Paul and Suzee Grilley, Yin and Yang Yoga as well as inner practices with Sarah Powers and Advanced Vinyasa training with Duncan Peak and the team at Power Living.
iRest yoga Nidra training has been another important point in Coreys training providing deeper levels of peace from processing past trauma, allowing further integration of the sometimes fractured parts of the self people often just live with.
Soon Corey will be studying with the GMB team- a movement Method to help people improve their strength, enable them to move better, and build total confidence in their own bodies through fun exercises and movement patterns.
Today Corey teaches Yoga at The Creative Yoga and Stretch Therapy classes. This is combined with running his private studio in Eltham- The Yoga Barn. Corey lives by the idea of creating physical autonomy and supports developing freedom in one’s life.
What if you could wake up everyday and know that your body was ready to handle everything you wanted it to do? Instead of worrying about nagging pains or limitations, you feel excited to challenge yourself in your favourite sports or activities, and to enjoy new experiences and opportunities as they present themselves. This is my definition of “Physical Autonomy.” This is what I hope to bring to you in our practice together!”
