What is Core Transformation?

This workout was designed by a massage therapist & bodyworker and combines many traditions of core work and intuitive bodywork traditions into one invigorating and deeply transformative style of focused movement. Think of it as deep tissue massage that works deep into your body as you incorporate effort and breath work.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Core Transformation different from other core workouts like Pilates?

Pilates is powerful work, especially when taught by an artful instructor.  Yoga also is a wonderful way to work your core and deepen your flexibility.  Core Transformation takes elements from both of these and then adds in Callanetics- a system of deep muscle contraction and deep body awareness.   Core Transformation is continually evolving and will teach you things that you can apply all day, every day like Core Walking, breathwork, and restorative movement strategies that will keep your body out of pain and feeling lithe, graceful and supple. 

How do I prepare for a Core Transformation class?

Bring water, wear comfy yoga-style clothes and be ready to move about barefoot. Prepare, above all, to show up.  For it is in choosing and committing to a new way of being that we are transformed. 

What if I am really out of shape, can I do this?

The only fitness level that I would caution against joining this class is someone who is unable to get up off of the ground unassisted.  We spend a lot of time getting into a lot of different movements.  No matter where you are, you can begin to get your ability to move freely back again.  Your instructor will help you modify whenever something seems temporarily out of reach or beyond your body’s ability. 

What kind of effects should I expect to feel after my first workout? How about after a few months?

You will feel a sense of soreness as your muscles awaken.  One hour of the deep muscle contraction work that we do is equivalent to 7 hours in the gym doing a normal gym routine. This soreness is not like the tearing down that you experience from lifting weights.  It is, instead, an opening, a possibility, a lengthening and brings hope. It is hard work, but , oh, the body loves it. Within 6-8 sessions, clients are experiencing a release of chronic stiffness and fatigue.  They are gaining strength, flexibility, grace and control.  What will your experience be?

Does the Core Transformation workout work well in tandem with Core Alignment Therapy?

Adding a Core Alignment Therapy session to this work will only further deepen your results by releasing stuck holding patterns and creating space in the spine, hips and shoulders for increased range of motion.
