That foundation is the people.
Updated: Oct 7, 2020
I was initially skeptical of trying Corepower yoga because it seemed too corporate , but after my first class, I was totally hooked. The workout was unparalleled to anything I’d ever experienced and the people teaching the classes were like rockstars. I was so impressed with the teachers, I couldn’t get over it. I was comforted by the community vibe, I knew I wanted to become a part of it.
Over the years, a lot about Corepower yoga has changed and with it my feelings toward the company have changed as well. But the foundation from where my love for cpy has grown has not only remained consistent, it’s expanded and shown up for me in ways that overwhelm me with gratitude. That foundation is the people. The teachers who give their time and whole hearts to their students. The friends I’ve made who will be in my wedding and are there to pick me up and lift me up through every phase and season of my life. The students who I’ve had the privilege of guiding through thousands of sequences, through trainings, through the seasons of their own lives. People I’ve bared witness to tremendous transformation, growth and self discovery. It was on my mat in Corepower yoga classes that I started to explore my own person, I created my own identity and really found myself as an independent, self sufficient adult in the world. Corepower provided a path for me to grow as a human, yogi, friend, teacher, leader, and so much more. The people and connections I’ve made because of Corepower over the years are invaluable and have enriched my life like no other experience or event or job has or possibly ever will. For these profound reasons, Corepower yoga is a very special place that deserves to continue, if only to foster these incredible communities. That’s why I support Instructors coming together to have a real voice through a union. I think in the end, not only will we do better, but so will our students and even CorePower as a company.
