This training is for movement professionals (yoga, pilates, chiropractic, dance, etc.) as well as anyone looking to deepen their awareness of their body’s movement potential.

Joining this training is a rare opportunity to learn from one of the best. Jonathan has devoted his practice to understanding anatomy and conveying that information to his students and clients in the most accessible way. He makes the complex seem simple, and he supports his clients to make major transformations in mobility and overall health. His trainees have gone on to become master teachers in their own right.

I had the sincere pleasure of being a part of Jonathan FitzGordon’s Yoga Teacher Training in 2005. Immediately I could sense that Jonathan had a comprehensive understanding of the human anatomy and that his teaching was markedly different from what I was experiencing around the New York City at that time. I was looking for a teacher who was down to earth and to whom I could relate. Jonathan always brought a simple, straightforward, and honest approach to his classes. He teaches with compassion and inspires his student to be deeply curious about human function. I felt that if I took his training it would prepare me with a breadth of knowledge that I could use for a lifetime. Not only did his training fulfill those expectations, it led me to become a full-time Hatha yoga teacher with a sizable private clientele. With this newfound confidence I gradually became inspired to share my experience through workshops and trainings as well. There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t receive this solid foundation of yogic wisdom from Jonathan FitzGordon.

This training is for you if:

  • You want to develop teaching mastery – the ability to see and address your client’s concerns and offer concrete solutions to their physical issues.
  • You're curious about how the body works optimally and would like to improve your own movement patterns.
  • You've struggled to help your students get out of pain and you really want to make a difference.
  • You're willing to take a deep dive into anatomy and posture.
  • You've got the discipline to get your homework done independently.
  • You appreciate community and the shared experience of learning together.

I started yoga seeking to heal from several lingering aches and pains related to impact sports. I waded through the variety of vinyasa-style classes offered throughout New York City, before finding one of Jonathan’s training’s. I was immediately converted. Jonathan's instruction on how to settle into asanas, combined with his knowledge of anatomy, is how I was able to make sense of yoga and find the places I needed to go to fix my injuries. One of his many strengths is on focusing on developing muscle groups to help maintain a pose longer and fall deeper into it. There is no doubt in my mind that I would not be the yogi I am today without Jonathan's teachings.

Jonathan, creator of the CoreWalking Program and Psoas Release Party! has been practicing yoga since 1995, teaching since 2000 and teaching teachers since 2003. He owned and operated the Yoga Center of Brooklyn from 2001-2009 and created the CoreWalking Program in 2005 because walking is something we all do and walking correctly is an amazing way to bring positive change to our aging bodies.

Jonathan's philosophy rests on the rock solid belief in our ability to change and evolve as we age. Jonathan learned this first hand. After stubbornly suffering through three knee surgeries and repeatedly re-injuring himself, he decided to step back a take a good look at how the body works. Injury-free these many years later, his teaching aims to help people age gracefully and live pain free lives.

This training may be the only time Jonathan offers something like it. His previous trainings have been incredible learning opportunities coupled with a sense of play and community. The body is an amazing thing to explore and it can take a lifetime to understand even the smallest part. Joining this training will open up a whole new world of body intelligence.

Yoga training with Jonathan was the gift that keeps on giving. I took his teacher training in 2007 (almost10 years ago). I think of him every time I stand up, getting in touch with my bones. Jonathan is a truly gifted and original teacher. His powers of observation are sharp – there’s no escaping them. And he’s articulate: he can explain what he sees and what he’s learning (and he never stops learning). Jonathan’s instruction and the resources available via his website: webinars, ebooks, blog and more, explain his unique approach to movement without pain. At over 70, I’ve seen a lot of yoga flow under the bridge. Jonathan has been an important constant in my practice for a long time.
