Kore has been devoted to the study of yoga since 2006. She first discovered yoga while studying abroad in the Gambia, where she had brought one health magazine containing a simple sun salutation flow. She found that yoga helped to calm fears and strengthen her body and mind through challenging times abroad.
Kore has had the privilege of studying with incredible teachers throughout the United States and Canada. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training certification at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga in British Columbia, Canada in 2012, which she describes as an incredibly inspiring and nurturing experience. She is trained in traditional hatha and classical Ashtanga yoga systems, and finds strength and healing from Forrest Yoga, Yin, Restorative, and Yoga Nidra practices as well.
In 2018, she completed a 70-hour Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training in Seattle with master instructor Ana Forrest. She is also a certified Street Yoga teacher and has taken additional trainings in Yin yoga, Myofascial Release, and Yoga for 50+. Her influential yoga teachers include Ana Forrest, Liz Doyle, Gianna Carotenuto (Seattle), Reno Muenz (Vancouver, BC), and Tina James (Whistler, BC). Off the mat, her greatest teachers continue to be her young identical twin daughters.
Kore is drawn to yoga for its ability to rediscover hidden truths about ourselves, challenge us beyond our comfort zones, and connect to our highest potential as human beings. She emphasizes safe alignment and core support in her classes, while allowing students the time and space to discover their own abilities.
