Yoga for Hips & Balance
We need to initiate our movement from the core of the body.
To do that we need pelvic tone for strength, balance and fluidity.
This workshop focuses on muscles of the pelvis that faciliate balance and healthy movement patterns.
Saturday June 19th
Psoas Release Party!
The psoas is the most important muscle in the body acting as the main hip flexor and the engine of walking.
A free and happy psoas allows the body to move with peak efficiency and little strain.
Issues with the psoas can lead to any number of problems throughout your body- both physical and emotional.
Lower back pain and other joint discomfort as well as disturbances to the nervous system can be linked to the psoas.
This in not a yoga class.
We spend the afternoon awakening, learning about and release the iliopsoas muscle group and understanding its core function within the body.
3pm - 6pm
Sunday June 20th
Yoga for Strength & Stability

In this class you will learn a natural walking technique that helps to align your bones, free your joints and bring welcome relief to overused muscles.

Using the CoreWalking techniques, you can bring your body into a state of balance that allows you to both move and age gracefully.

Here's what people say about Jonathan & CoreWalking...
"Jonathan came in and got me walking upright again and straight... I have him to thank for the fact that I am walking right now." Frank
"Before I started it, I could hardly walk, my legs were so stiff and sore. And now I can keep up with my daughters and my grandchildren with ease." Nicola
"I had terrible hip pain, groin pain, limping when I walked... now I can walk 2 to 3 hours with no pain. No limping. I wake up in the morning pain free." Robert
Jonathan Fitzgordon has been practicing yoga since 1995 and teaching since 2000, after studying with some of the yoga community’s leading teachers. He owned and operated the Yoga Center of Brooklyn from 2001–2009 and created the CoreWalking Program in 2005 out of his personal and professional experience with changing habitual movement patterns through self-awareness and repetition as a way to bring about positive change. Jonathan had suffered through three knee surgeries and repeatedly re-injured himself before stepping back to take a good look at how the body works. Injury-free these many years later, the walking program he created aims to help people age gracefully and live a pain-free life.
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've watched countless students transform their practice under his guidance.
Jonathan FitzGordon turned my yoga life around. Jonathan was instrumental in guiding me through an understanding of my 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.
I have been in chronic back pain for 10 years! I am very active, yoga teacher, always weight trained. But in the past 3 years I have been not been able to do the things I live to do or at least not at the same capacity. I have been following your CoreWalking plan now for about 3 weeks and already I notice so much change in my body and my pain level has decreased and has changed in duration etc. I am only expecting it to get better... Just wanted to say thanks!
I was at the end of my rope. Daily pain from a tight psoas and piriformis which gave me sciatica and numbness. I searched and spent thousands of dollars until I stumbled across CoreWalking, and although I have a degree for posture therapy, I didn’t really understand my body. Thanks to Jonathan I learned and healed myself! I know that so many people have been and can be helped through this revolutionary system!
Beyond grateful to indebted!
Jonathan Fitzgordon's yoga classes are a refreshing break from the usual vinyasa class which, for me, can often be repetitive and hard on my body. Jonathan's unique style, leads to well thought out, workshop-like sessions that are a perfect balance of thoughtful alignment and heat creating movement. The poses are familiar but each class feels creative in it's sequencing, keeping my attention throughout the hour. The teaching is confident, relaxed and non-judgmental.
I have injuries in my wrist, hip and back so I am always hesitant to take new classes. Jonathan took care to address all of my trouble spots as I moved through the postures, checking in and offering alternatives when needed. Because of this, I find his classes to be therapeutic and not irritating for any of my musculoskeletal issues.
Most importantly, it's fun! And I always feels great afterward.
