Jonathan FitzGordon is a yoga teacher and the creator and founder of Core Walking, a program designed to teach a natural walking technique that has been highly successful in alleviating pain, enhancing athletic performance, and improving quality of life. His yoga classes and the program are imbued with the love of anatomy and the moving body. Core Walking has been featured in the New York Times and on Good Morning America.
The CoreWalking Program was born out of Jonathan FitzGordon‘s personal and professional experience with changing the body’s habitual movement patterns through self-awareness and repetition. The program’s philosophy rests on the rock-solid belief in our ability to change and evolve as we age. Jonathan learned this first hand. After stubbornly suffering through three knee surgeries and repeatedly re-injuring himself, Jonathan decided to step back a take a good look at how the body works. Injury free these many years later, the walking program aims to help people age gracefully and live pain free lives.
Jonathan has been practicing yoga since 1995 and has been teaching since 2000, having studied with some of the yoga community’s leading teachers. He owned and operated the Yoga Center of Brooklyn from 2001 to 2009 and created the CoreWalking Program in 2005 because walking is something we all do and walking correctly is an amazing way to bring positive change to our ageing bodies.
