When I found CoreWalking I was in so much pain. I had been going to chiropractors, massage therapists, an osteopath, and physical therapists and nothing was helping. I'd feel great after the session but I would walk out and in a block it was all abck. It was a waste of money and time. So I googled walking and I found CoreWalking. It's just been life changing. My pain has diminished. I feel like my body is working more effectively. I feel looser. I can breather easier. I highly recommend this.

Growing up I always had a fairly active lifestyle. When I got to my second year in college, I started to notice that my walking wasn't the way it used to be. My feet were slapping the ground, my leg muscles felt really overworked, and my neck started to get really tight. So basically for a period of two-three years, my life was pretty awful in terms of how I was feeling physically. But when I discovered CoreWalking, it really helped to change the direction my health had been going. Basically, a big emphasis in CoreWalking is explaining what you're doing wrong, and then explaining what you should be doing to be right. Really understanding the body mechanics and what my body wasn't doing right really helped to solidify what I needed to do to be better. CoreWalking walked me through each step of the way how to reach the end goal of being biomechanically sound. Over the past couple of months I've been able to make some permanent progress, and it's really helped to solidify and make gains. I'm physically better for it, and nowadays if I wake up and I'm not doing quite as well, I know how to fix myself, and that's really made all the difference.

My experience with Jonathan was about five sessions long and when I was about sixteen years old my chronic back pain started and pretty much was a daily thing. I couldn't stand for long, and it lasted until I was around thirty, so for roughly half my life I was in pain. I saw five session over three months and I'd say my pain went down to about five percent. He changed my life, the way I can walk around and be more productive.

I am a designer by trade and I have spent my whole life trying to figure out how things work and fixing them. About ten years ago my body stopped being my friend and increasingly got out of alignment and was hurting me. I came to CoreWalking by chance and am grateful that I have learned.

I have been employing the techniques of CoreWalking for about five years now and my body and posture has changed from a tight and rigid stance to something that is much softer and more comfortable for my lower back and my hips. So I am grateful for the techniques and I intend to keep using them.

I did the CoreWalking program about three years ago and I am still noticing a difference in my feet. Before when I took walks I would notice that my IT band would be really tight, my hips would be achy, but now I can walk to the store and walk around the park and feel better not worse.

I found CoreWalking to be a fascinating road to wellness… For me, CoreWalking has resulted in a pain free life, and the active life that I want to lead and most importantly an ever growing knowledge of ways to maintain this wellness.
Read Cally's Testimonial
I had the privilege to work with CoreWalking and prior to using this process I was in a lot of pain due to an injury and I had gone through so many different treatments from acupuncture to rolfing to feldenkrais and I still couldn’t resolve my issue. CoreWalking immediately corrected my posture which started me on a path to becoming pain free.

My name is Dr. David Bach. I did CoreWalking about a year ago with pretty intense lower back pain. I tried a bunch of things to fix it; traditional western doctors—I am a doctor—I had done stretching and yoga and couldn’t do anything to fix it and I went to three classes and the back pain basically went away.

Wow. I did the level one video and I am reading the whole story about the psoas and it is totally changing my life. I have loved with the most tremendous hip pain for the last ten years. And yesterday I took a one mile walk and I followed the method and I feel better.

I came to CoreWalking because of a lot of tension in my hips and specifically I have come to learn in a muscle that is my psoas muscle. I am a professional actress and singer and being on stage and not just comfortable but in full command of my body is critical. CoreWalking is that it teaches you about your whole body.

My back was hurting a lot, it was hard for me to operate professionally; it was hard for me to perform, carry my bass, play the piano, do the things I do. I tried a number of things that l do—Yoga, swimming, alexander technique, relaxation, you name but nobody was able to figure out what was going on.
Read Florence's Testimonial
I just want to say that I am still amazed at how well the walking program has helped relieve pain that I have had for a number of years. I’ve tried chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and I still had pain. And something as simple as learning how to walk again, aligning myself in a new way has changed my life.

It was scary at first, but with information, specifically from CoreWalking, I was able to reclaim my life. And now for the first time in a long time I am able to smile because I know that though it’s a journey I’ll have to change the way I work, it’s the way I should have always moved. And now I have a new lease on life.
Read Justin's Testimonial
Before CoreWalking I had chronic headaches, pretty much for my whole life. I was experiencing some pretty serious back pain and since then I have figured out great ways to combat the back pain. My headaches for a large part have gone away. I recommend CoreWalking to anyone who has back problems, headache problems or just generally wants to feel better and have better posture.

After watching a couple of these videos my walk has changed dramatically. I have walked with my left foot slightly turned out for almost 70 years. Now that I'm walking more mindfully I can't turn it out even if I wanted to!

Hi! My name is Ginger Purkey, and I am a Pilates Instructor in Evans, Ga. I found you on Facebook, follow your postings. I have found that learning more about your body is so helpful. I enjoy teaching, and like to give my clients reasons why we do certain moves and always inform them how we are all connected, and I quote you a lot. I believe everyone should should learn how to stand, walk, etc to understand that it begins with the pelvis! You have taught me a lot about the body, and I feel, if you have the knowledge, that's half the battle. Thank you for all that you do!

Jonathan FitzGordon turned my yoga life around. I had a lot of lingering injuries for many years and most vinyasa classes were just too fast and the fast pace reinforced my unhealthy patterns of movement. Often I came away with pains and injuries from the class. The vinyasa style didn't give me room to explore, investigate, and correct those patterns. Jonathan was instrumental in guiding me through my understanding of these injuries and giving me the vocabulary of movement and an experiential understanding of my body's anatomy and its tendencies. Through Jonathan's classes, I've been able to heal my injuries and change my pattern of movement so I don't keep re-injuring myself. And finally, after a nice chunk of time practicing exclusively with Jonathan, I can practice vinyasa style yoga classes without injuring myself. I still very much need Jonathan's classes to recalibrate and bring back my new knowledge to the exercises and sequences he teaches. The self-coaching tools he's given me have helped me take my practice off the mat and bring it into my life and work. My work with Jonathan has taken me on an intensive journey that's not quite teacher training, but feels like training to find my own teacher within. I'm delighted that I'm able to experience more fully the breadth of teachers at the yoga studio where I practice after my years of careful and healing work but I will always return to his insights and his teaching.

It is necessary to walk the right way and I was not aware that I was not doing it right. Jonathan FitzGordon showed the way and that helped me do away with my sciatica pain to a great extent. Core Walking program really helped.

I had muscle tension and it re-appeared whenever it went under some strain. I came across Core Walking and Jonathan came up with a solution which I thought was very unique. I have actually found some improvements.
Read Anna's Testimonial
A large disc in my spine has been damaged since 2009. I have been in pain for years now, and the muscles in my right leg have been severely weakened due to the nerve damage. In January 2014 I had an emergency operation due to Cauda Equina Syndrom. After the operation it took several weeks until I could walk around with a walker. Due to how long my nerves had been damaged my walk was very unnatural and put a heavy strain on my legs, hips and muscles. After just a week of studying the Core Walking program I experienced significant improvement in my walking style. The program helped my active muscles that has not been activated for a long time due to my nerve damage and have helped me to relearn how to walk. Lots of training remains until I have recovered completely but Core Walking has really helped me in the recovery process. I even got applauses from the nurses last time I visited the hospital just because they saw how much I had improved!

The Psoas Release Party was my first contact with Jonathan FitzGordon's teachings. Following its well described techniques resulted in tremendous improvement in my neck and back pain. He communicates more clearly with his written and video materials than any of the several physical therapists I have seen over the years, with better results. I continue to follow his corewalking blog for further improving my health. Can't recommend him enough.

The CoreWalking Program is a wonderful tool for all walkers of all ages. A necessary tool for yoga and fitness teachers. The explanations and exercises are easy to understand and follow! A great gift for someone you love!
Read Nancy's Testimonial
Love the program. I just cannot stop the psoas party until I finish it. Everyone who knows me cautions me to go slowly and not overdo it. But so far all I get is wonderful results. I have completed it 4 times now. Now I am using the book exercises so I can do it while watching TV with my husband. The results are dramatic. I have done the Walk with Me and went from walking a slow one block to a brisk 1 mile walk on the second day of working on my walking posture. Within one week I was back to my old 2 mile walk. All these years, testing, drugs, surgeries and procedures, and it is the proper releases of the psoas group which is allowing me to enjoy life again. I just had a successful neruotomy of my L3, 4 and 5 facet joints but was stuck in the pain loop. My physical therapist is giving me credit for my wonderful recovery and I in turn give you credit.

Taking the CoreWalking Program has changed my body for the better on a very deep level. I have spent the last nine years recovering from a birth injury (long story short) that created a lifetime of dysfunction and pain and caused my body to give out at the age of twenty-two. Now it feels like CoreWalking is like a final piece I have been searching for to help shift my key movement patterns into a healthier place.

I’m already a tall guy, but since I started the course, a number of friends and others who already knew me have asked me if I’m still growing, or remarked on suddenly noticing how tall I actually am. I know there’s a physical change because my head touches the top of the subway door frame.
Read Suzie's Testimonial
I have found this program the most helpful thing I have done after slipping a disc over 10 years ago. I have done a lot of different therapies and rehab programs. Just learning how to stand better helped a lot. So I am very grateful to you and happy to have found this program.

I have to admit, I have jumped around on the website, blog, downloads and all. I'm amazed at the depth and completeness of your work. With this program I'm going to fix my 8-9 month battle with left sided nerve entrapment In the pelvis/hip. Between my physician, a chiropractor, sports medicine MD, physical medicine MD, a neurosurgeon, and the medical director at my job (he's an orthopedic surgeon) none could tell me what was wrong or what to do. I feel better in five days than I've felt in 8 months. The weight gain of 3 steroid injections and an oral course, is hopefully going to reverse. I'll be 60 yrs this year and cannot imagine my life like it was, going forward. Finally, this will be the course that helps me to help myself. I invested in about 3-4 other courses, books, chair pillows and cushions, equipment (a deluxe teeter and a total gym) as well as some yoga videos. A doctor at work, doesn't believe me, that I've gotten so much relief from some simple techniques, of un-tucking and belly breaths.
