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 month, we curate the most important wellness articles and podcasts, the latest in evidence-based movement research, upcoming workshops worth attending, and much more.

In this edition, you’ll find lessons on allyship with a recent article covering our new C2C teacher Rebby Kern, coping with anxiety, the importance of fitness (after 50), and much more!

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