From her beginnings as a young girl, to waitressing in 1980s New York at the Life Cafe (owned by the founder-to-be of Jivamukti Yoga), to her current work as an internationally-renowned yoga teacher and co-founder of esteemed activist organization Off The Mat, Into The World, Seane Corn has always lived a life led by her sense of justice and action. We sat down with her on a rainy afternoon at Triyoga in London to talk activism, social justice, and how we can incorporate both into our daily lives.


Seane Corn is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher known for her impassioned activism, unique self-expression, and inspirational style of teaching that incorporates both the physical and mystical aspects of the practice of yoga. Her classes integrate dynamic vinyasa flow asana (linking movement with breath) with the application of precise alignment, meditation, visualization, intention and prayer to create an inner journey towards healing and empowerment.  

Since the beginning of her teaching career in 1994, many yoga, health and wellness sources have sought her insight and expertise. Having appeared on over twenty magazine covers, featured in over thirty magazine publications, Seane was a featured yoga contributor for Oprah.com’s ‘Spirit’ section and was seen on The Today Show with Matt Lauer. Over the course of her career, Seane has created four yoga DVD’s and one audio CD (see Products page) produced by Gaiam, Sounds True and Yoga Journal and has a new DVD on the chakras and the mind/body connection coming out in 2014.
