Jackie Incorvia Corrigan has been practicing yoga since 2005 and teaching full-time since 2009. In 2008, after taking an Eastern Philosophy class at University of Rhode Island, she traveled to south India to study classical Hatha yoga for five months. In 2009, she earned her 200-hour certification with Yoga Teachers Training Institute and in 2011, completed her 500-hour teacher training with Yoga Teachers Training Institute. Jackie has studied anatomy, dynamic movement, and alignment extensively in the Iyengar tradition with Chicago-based teacher, Gabriel Halpern and began studying the the Ashtanga practice formally in 2012, completing over 150 hours of training with Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann in Miami. In addition, Jackie trained as a birth doula in 2014 and obtained her prenatal yoga teacher certification under Heather Simonson in 2015. She is now pursuing study and education in energy work, including reiki, a hands-on technique to promote physical, mental, and emotional balance and healing.
The classes she offers are an intelligent appropriation of the Ashtanga yoga sequence, incorporating detailed verbal instruction geared towards rehabilitating areas of imbalance, specializing in working with chronic pain, spinal conditions, and injuries. In her open level classes that cater to people of all ages and experience, Jackie weaves in the philosophical teachings from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, resulting in a well-rounded practice for mind and body. With thousands of hours of teaching experience, Jackie has worked with a range of individuals from brand new beginner students to those aspiring and training to become yoga teachers themselves, from teenagers at Ward Melville High School to students first beginning a yoga practice in their seventies, and has done public, private, and semi-private sessions for families in their homes and in various local studios and facilities.
