Stephanie Corigliano is an adjunct professor in the Religious Studies department at Humboldt State University and independent lecturer. Her 2015 Phd in Comparative Theology from Boston College focused on the use of the Yogasūtras within the Modern Yoga teaching tradition of T. Krishnamacharya and engaged the work of Jean-Pierre de Caussade, S.J. to highlight the potential interdependence of devotion and detachment in spiritual practice. She recently completed the essay, “The Making and Unmaking of the Self: Patañjali’s Yogasūtra and the Experience of Trauma,” for the volume Thinking with the Yogasūtra of Patañjali: Translation, Interpretation, edited by Ana Laura Funes and Tracy Sachs and is currently writing for the forthcoming Handbook of Hindu-Christian Relations, edited by Michelle Voss Roberts and Chad Bauman, with an essay entitled, “Postcolonial Theology in the Hindu-Christian Encounter.”
Stephanie is an authorized teacher of Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of K. Pattabhi Jois and a daily practitioner since 1999. Mother of two active boys, she also maintains a 28 acre homestead in Northern California where she tends to bees and grows a variety of fruits and vegetables.
