Core Yoga Distance Education
30-hour fitness, yoga, Pilates distance education course for yoga, fitness, Pilates, and mind-body movement professionals.
Core Yoga is a Yoga/Pilates fusion class that blends the energetic flow of Vinyasa Yoga with the precise techniques of Pilates to create a dynamic experience of mindful movement and meditation in motion.
Core Yoga combines breath, awareness, core strengthening, and stretching techniques aimed at strengthening and mobilizing the body, focusing the mind, improving breathing and posture habits, and cultivating a practice of mindfulness in everyday life.
Suitable for all levels, Core Yoga aims to support participants in reducing low back pain, managing stress, improving posture, and building a foundation for active daily life.
Since 2009 Yoga Trinity has delivered successful Core Yoga Training programs in face-to-face intensives. In 2013 we created the opportunity to complete this program online, in your own time, at your own pace. Since then, over movement professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds have learned to share Core Yoga with their yoga, Pilates, group fitness, and personal training clients. We are enthusiastic about continuing to bridge the gap between fitness and yoga, and make continuing education training more affordable and accessible.
It is our aim that when you complete this Core Yoga Training program you will be able to clearly demonstrate each movement, guide the general participant safely through a balanced sequence of techniques, and instruct simple breath-work exercises. As well, we encourage each Core Yoga instructor in demonstrating the philosophies of Yoga and Pilates in their practice, and professional and personal interactions.
