Why This? Why Now?
When I finished my first yoga teacher training in 1999, I turned to my soon to be wife and said, “Well, that was a start. What do we do next?”
Almost seventeen years later I am still searching for the what’s next… forever learning, seeking, reading, studying and sharing.
I believe in community and accountability and I know that there is no better way to grow as a teacher. I want to offer my years of experience helping people find relief from chronic pain with CoreWalking, yoga and the study of anatomy and the body, and share it with like-mind individuals.
My personal aha! moment came when I was back on my yoga mat after a 3rd knee surgery and a teacher asked me the question that would change my life forever: "What are you doing to prevent a fourth surgery?" After picking my jaw up off the floor and saying "nothing", everything about the way I approached my body and teaching changed forever.
Growing from the experience of teaching teacher trainings and countless workshops I knew that I wanted to find a way to help people with pain issues who are simply looking to expand their understanding of the body and mind; and mentor movement professionals as they navigate their way into and through the world of pain relief and healing.

An Online Private W/ Jonathan
If you suffer from chronic pain, or you help others out of pain or if you are a someone who just wants to learn more about their body, a private with me will give you essential insights into how you walk and stand and open your mind to new possibilities for living the active life of your dreams and most importantly, aging gracefully.
I have a unique perspective on the body that I can’t wait to share with you.
CoreWalking: The Posture Lesson
In CoreWalking: The Posture Lesson I work with my friend Nehemoyia (Neemo) Young, a dancer with a great awareness of her body and patterns and her input really takes this lesson to the next level.
The Posture Lesson is a bird's eye view of a one hour private lesson where Neemo and I go deep into all things posture and you are sure to have you eyes open to new movement possibilities.
I came across the BodyMind webinar while recovering from back surgery and because walking was the only activity I was allowed to do, I signed on and was immediately smitten with Jonathan FitzGordon’s style of presentation, open-mindedness to both anecdotal and scientific data, diagrams of anatomy not usually found in anatomy books, or Yoga books, both current and past. There were guest speakers that presented their views on disciplines that related to Anatomy or Yoga but not normally found at yoga studios. I have included into my yoga therapy routine exercises presented in these webinars workshops and have participated in the yoga classes offered, mostly for Jonathan’s sharp critique to keep me from overextending myself during my recovery. This concludes my specular take on The BodyMind
With his creative, articulate voice and vision, Jonathan helped me refine the way I hold my body in the most daily environments to relieve years of low-grade chronic pain. His work with posture re-patterning is both utterly revolutionary and logically accessible. For teachers and healers, Jonathan's work will shift how you see, how you stand, and how you speak in your own work and teaching.

“The BodyMind's anatomy and therapeutics workshops have enabled me to guide my yoga students into poses without throwing their entire body out of alignment all the while modifying appropriately for injuries they might be suffering from. Exploring other forms of bodywork in the BodyMind has also led me to incorporate exercises that are not specific to yoga into my classes to build a stronger muscular foundation for my students. Thanks to the BodyMind program and Jonathan sharing his vast knowledge of anatomy, movement, therapeutics and yoga, I feel that I am able to better serve all of my yoga students, be they accomplished yogis, people looking for relief from chronic pain, or novices looking to begin an exercise plan."
“My initial introduction to Jonathan’s work came during a web search because of trouble with sciatica pain in my left lower leg. The doctors had recommended steroid shots and possibly surgery! Both options were not even up for discussion. CoreWalking promised relief and I was willing to listen to more. I was intrigued as I listened to his explanation of how efficiently the body will work when all the parts are properly aligned. After a year of working with Jonathan through CoreWalking and the MindBody program, I am without pain, more aware of my walking posture and engaged in his live yoga classes as often as possible. Following the MindBody webinars over the past year has given me extensive information and valuable insight as to how the body functions. I appreciated the special guests and Jonathan’s unique ability to make all the brilliant information “user friendly”.
I continue to participate with the on line live yoga classes and am finding Jonathan’s coaching and teaching supportive, encouraging and easy to follow."
Upcoming On The BodyMind
It might seem overly simple to imagine that learning about how your body works can be life changing. But, when you're feeling lost and hopeless, it's hard to make it through the day and it affects all areas of your life. You do not have to become an expert in anatomy and movement, but understanding your body is the clearest way to finding relief. The perspective I share is not only about simplicity, but also about autonomy. When you take ownership of your healing, you become your own healer. By focusing on education -- on basic anatomy and optimal alignment, you'll learn how to move without taking your body for granted.
I know, you've tried a lot of things and you're tired of them not working. The thing is, I've been there too. The good news is together with a community of like-minded people you can learn how to do the work required with the least amount of struggle. Things that have left you in the dark until now will come into focus. Your questions will be answered. You will receive support without judgement and take control of your healing journey. You don't have to do it alone.
The question is, how done are you with being in pain? What are you willing to do about it? I promise this isn't about working harder and doing more but about working smarter and integrating awareness with a new sense of responsibility for your own care.
Also get a growing archive of anatomy lessons, therapeutic workshops, yoga classes and more.
