Repair and strengthen your core
In core foundations, we begin with simple, clear, and easy to follow instructions on how to engage your core in practice. Each week, we build off of the previous week’s work, offering slow and steady progression.
We teach you how to build safe, strong, and stable alignments in common yoga poses. Through repetition and practice, we’ll slowly increase strength and power in your core, move with greater integrity beyond the yoga mat.
This program includes a PDF guidebook, video library, and daily emails, so you always know what’s coming. You can follow the schedule or get ahead by stacking multiple classes at a time.
Core Foundations teaches the foundation of core engagement in yoga practice, and beyond.
Using a mix of yoga shapes, personal training tools, and physical therapist-approved methods of strengthening deep core tissue, we’ll teach you how to use muscle activation to make even the simplest yoga shapes into a fierce core-strengthening move.
Whether you’re looking to strengthen or repair your core, get stronger, or develop better mobility and movement in practice, this program will teach you the lesser known tools to activate deep core muscles in a way you’ve never learned before.
This program includes pre-recorded videos and supportive resources.

Julie Love Gagen, 500 E-RYT
A chronic encourager, Julie is in love with the possibilities yoga has to offer.
She is committed to inspiring each and every person to discover who they are through caring, supportive, and inspiring practices on the mat.
For Julie, yoga has been a path to recover from unexplained illness, heartbreak, postpartum depression, and the ups and downs of motherhood with littles.
Julie’s study began with pushing physical boundaries in power yoga classes. Her personal study today pushes different boundaries, as she cultivates her continued desire to slow down, create internal space, increase mental clarity and focus, and find quiet amidst the chaos.
She has repaired Diastasis Recti (postpartum abdominal separation) using this method twice (after each child).
