Core Tune Up
with Megan Herdeg
Tapping into your innate power and potential:
Cultivate a deeper connection to your core and your own innate power and potential. Core strength is such a widely use prescription for so many things nowadays. But what exactly is the core? Is there more we can do to keep it healthy than just daily crunches and long plank holds? Yes, there is!
In this workshop we will explore the interconnected muscles of your center and its surrounding supportive tissues, discovering their role in helping you move with ease and breathe better. We will shift away from the superficial view of the external core and connect to a greater sense of the body as a whole. We will use self-massage techniques to release and mobilize bound and stuck muscles and reset your ability to strengthen your core.
This is a workshop that teaches techniques of letting go and releasing as much as how to effectively engage and strengthen the muscles of your core. You will gain insight on why both of these actions are vital for a well-functioning core.
Please bring or wear comfortable yoga clothing. All props including massage tools will be provided for used during the workshop.

My goal as a teacher is to provide uplifting, nourishing and educational classes to assist my student’s personal growth and transformation. As a licensed Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher and certified Yoga Tune Up® teacher my work is heavily influenced by my knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics and yoga philosophy, and my primary focus is longevity in practice. My passion and drive to understand the body comes from my own personal journey to a pain free life after suffering a severe spinal injury as a child. I received an associate’s degree in massage therapy in 2003 and began working with modalities such as deep tissue, lomi lomi, herbal poultice massage and Thai massage. In 2009 I received my first yoga teaching certificate and have been teaching both private and group classes ever since. In February 2018 I completed my certification to become a Yoga Tune Up® teacher and currently teach YTU workshops and classes in and around Zürich, Switzerland.
