Questions and Answers

What  is Yogacore?

Yogacore is a fitness based functional core training program that infuses a yin/yang style yoga to improve strength, balance & flexibility. We learn to train the body intensely while calming the mind. 

Who Is This Style of Training For? 

Everyone. Yogacore training compliments our gym workouts & our sports, by keeping our joints & connective tissues healthy. By developing a strong core, lower back, improving our balance & posture , we are able to perform daily activities with less effort. Less strain on our joints. 

Is There A Spiritual Component to Yogacore? 

You will learn tools to help calm the mind and improve oxygen efficiency by breathing more effectively. There is no traditional spiritual component. Yogacore teaches us to train hard in a calm manner. This is a functional yoga program designed to compliment all training styles .

What Is Yin/Yang Yoga? 

Yin yoga is longer, calmer, non muscular engagement stretches designed to allow the connective tissues & fascia to relax, improving stability & mobility in and around our joints. You know the stretches you should be doing after your workout, but sometimes don’t? That’s Yin. 

Yang stretches are more typical of what we normally do in the gym as they require our muscles to be engaged to protect our joints while lengthening & stretching them.
