Welcome to a brand new edition of Core to Coeur’s The Forward Fold, a monthly publication on the latest movement, fitness, and wellness news. Every other week, we curate the most important wellness articles and podcasts, the latest in evidence-based movement research, upcoming workshops worth attending and more.

In this edition, highlights include how yoga and meditation can be used to ease chronic pain, research on white supremacy in wellness, and how to practice self love.

A new frontier for intersectional movement, fitness, and wellness is taking shape. The Forward Fold makes sure we all keep up together.
