    #24 Calvin Corzine – Motivated by the Feeling of Falling Behind

    Calvin Corzine (@calvmonster) is a yoga teacher who grew up surrounded by a community submerged in yoga. An athlete from an early age, sports held center focus. Calvin’s love for sports continues–he’s a die hard Lakers fan who never shies from excitement in the physical world, surfing, practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and pilates.

    Calvin has more than 500 hours of training with some of the best teachers in the world, including Vinnie Marino, Jenny Aurthur, Jesse Schein, Sharath Jois, and many more. This intentional, rigorous training has greatly influenced his well-rounded teaching style, which is a distinct blend of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Iyengar.

    In this episode, we talk to Calvin about his journey into yoga, his rigorous training regimen and the motivation behind it - related to both a heart condition and the mindset of falling behind, how he came up with his ice bath rants, and much more.
