About The Moderator
Jonathan FitzGordon is the creator of the CoreWalking Program and the Psoas Release Party! and has been teaching yoga for over fifteen years.
Jonathan is the author of the CoreWalking Blog that receives over 1 million views each year.
His work has been featured in the New York Times, Good Morning America and VOGUE magazine among others.
Growing from the experiences of teaching numerous teacher trainings he knew that he wanted to find a way to help mentor movement professionals as they navigate their way into and through the world of teaching.
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 online live yoga classes and am finding Jonathan’s coaching and teaching supportive, encouraging and easy to follow.
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.
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, and discussions of books concerning Anatomy or Yoga 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. All of this has helped me. This concludes my specular take on Core Walking BodyMind
Jonathan is a refreshingly wry teacher whose classes are both precise and exploratory. His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious. I always learn new ways to engage my body, and I typically enjoy surprising soreness a day or so later. I've watched countless students transform their practice under his guidance, and regularly recommend his classes for anyone looking to strengthen and balance their body using an intelligent and light-hearted approach.
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.
