Corey was born in Taiwan and lived in North America for over 20 years. He studied in the department of electrical engineering at Texas A&M University and completed his Bachelor of Science there. He is a certified personal trainer and competed in multiple bodybuilding competitions. Worked as an engineer for 16 years climbing smoothly up the corporate ladder, he once considered yoga as a “sissy sport”. He also considered himself the least spiritual person in the world. For example, he would even laugh at people who shopped at the “self-help” section in the bookstore wondering why they have such weak minds. However his storybook life came to the crashing end with some personal tragedies. His life literally turned upside down. In his darkest hours, he stumbled across yoga. The world as he knows it has changed completely. He was shocked to realize he was living in such darkness without noticing it. Like a baby opening its eyes for the first time, he let his energy, emotions, and thoughts come from inside out, release and revive. He no longer felt that it is imperative to be super muscular and tough. There is nothing he wants to do but Yoga. He decided to dedicate his life to yoga, after receiving his teaching certificate from YYoga, Vancouver and completed the Advanced Rocket Yoga Training. He was soon hired by a major yoga studio in Taipei. He had the opportunities to study with Chuck Miller, Maty Ezraty, Kino MacGregor, Doug Swenson etc. He teaches Ashtanga, Rocket, Hot and Yin yoga and hosted several workshops. His teaching has strong emphasis on Yoga philosophy. After all, the Yoga philosophy was the reason why he was initially attracted to yoga.
