Cory currently resides in Nashville, TN with his husband, Richard, and their two dogs, Spanky and Bodhi. He owns and teaches at Yoga Shala Nashville (formerly Ashtanga Yoga Nashville) where both Ashtanga and Jivamukti classes are offered daily (at the shala and online through a virtual platform). Cory graduated from Jivamukti TT in 2008 and after 7+ years working for the Food & Drug Administration, resigned at the end of 2015 to teach yoga full time. His personal practice gravitated to daily Ashtanga Mysore practice over the years and he now teaches Mysore as well as led Ashtanga and Jivamukti classes. He is grateful to his first teachers, David Life, Sharon Gannon and Ruth Lauer-Manenti for continuing to inspire his practice and teaching each day.
