THE 28 DAY CORE ACADEMY
What if you could get stronger in 28 days?
Picture a practice where chaturanga is easier and your vinyasas are truly flowing.
A practice that gets you excited, where your new found strength opens your body to welcome arm balances and inversions and allows you to really connect with your breath as you transition slowly and gracefully from asana to asana.
If you're anything like me ...
You're inspired by a practice that feels like meditation through movement. The empowering kind where you feel at the same time light yet strong, powerful yet graceful. This is the duality of yoga at it's most 'embodied'.
Let me get this out of the way now .... there is nothing wrong with striving for more in your yoga practice. Yes, yoga is not about getting fixated on perfecting every asana (which is why it's called a yoga PRACTICE not a yoga PERFECT) but it IS about growth ... spiritual, mental and ... physical. There is something so empowering in witnessing yourself getting stronger and more capable.
My name is Jenn and I'm the founder of The Soul Tribe (an online academy for all things yoga) and Soul Tribe Retreats (curating14 international retreats and teacher trainings every year). We have over 200 students on our live courses each year and the same questions and concerns keep coming up again and again. How do I get a strong core? Why can't I do chaturanga properly? How to get into headstand/handstand/crow pose? I really struggle to step my foot through from downdog with control! It's crazy how much these come up.
A couple of years back I made a point of teaching a focused core workshop on the first day of every retreat to help my students get the foundations down and ... WOW ... what a massive transformation! So many of you progressing every day, arm balancing for the first time, sticking your headstands and handstands and holding your down dogs with ease. This stuff really is the special sauce in all my teaching and I'm delighted to bring it to you online in the comfort of your home and of course there is always the invitation to join me on a retreat or live training to go even deeper!
Back to my personal yoga story. Now, as I write this, well over 10 years into my practice I feel stronger than ever. And not just physically... Yes, I now practice 6 days a week pain free, and arm balances and inversions are a joy to practice but it goes so much deeper than that. I feel strong and capable because my body is strong and capable. At (almost) 38, I'll finally truly 'in my body' and it feels awesome!
And here's the kicker ... true core strength spills into every area of your life. Connected to the third chakra Manipura, the centre of courage, self esteem and inner strength, your core is the power centre of your entire body, your nucleus and the seat of manifestation. It's where we "get s**t done". So whether you want to stop procrastinating, build your own business, take a big leap of faith, or simply commit fully to your physical health, it's here that we make it happen.
Introducing Core Academy ...

Wanting to get strong. Not just physically but mentally?
Lacking the knowledge or skills to be able to build real core strength?
You're not alone ...
Over and over again I hear the same issues from yogis all over the world which has lead me to develop this programme.
Imagine if you could ...
Have the strength to effortlessly flow through your yoga practice with grace and ease
Learn the skills and strength needed to practice arm balances and inversions
Feel inspired in your practice and excited to get on your mat
Build mental strength and a 'can do' attitude!
Maybe you can relate ...
I understand because I've been there too. I found that in yoga classes, teachers rarely had the time to break down proper form and alignment in key asanas. I was often instructed to come into crow pose, or headstand without any cues or it was offered as an 'option' for those who already practiced it. I remember thinking ... how did they learn it if it's not being taught?
Over the years, a pattern started to emerge. I come from a history of back injuries and I'd go deep into my practice for a while only to get injured or give up on new asanas because I felt 'out of my depth'. I lacked the strength and the knowledge to support my passion for yoga. This didn't just affect my asana practice, it meant that even sitting in meditation was painful and honestly, if it wasn't for my love of the practice, there were many times when I would have given up.
The 'lightbulb' moment ...
After two teacher trainings and many years of practice, it hit me. To really 'understand' my core and the role it has to play not just in my yoga practice but in my overall health and wellbeing I needed specific targeted training. I attended several intensive courses that were focused on my goals and saw amazing results. The idea for the Core Academy was born.
A little back story ...
The Core Academy is a 28 day journey to real core strength. The culmination of 10 years of yoga practice and 3 years of dedicated core strength training specifically for yoga . I've done the hard work so I can cherry pick the best bits for you. There is no longer a need to struggle with your practice due to lack of knowledge, or because you weren't shown how to work towards your goals.

Once a week we have an optional live webinar on Zoom where you'll learn more about technique and posture breakdowns, and be able to share your progress and ask questions
Q: What equipment will I need?
Ideally a yoga mat, two yoga blocks, a stability ball and a pair of socks! If you're a beginner start with a 75cm ball, intermediates can choose 65cm or 55cm but don't go below that. You can always scale down as you get stronger. A stability ball should cost no more than £20. Check out my Amazon recommendations here - Amazon Store
Q: What if I don't have the equipment
No worries! Two heavy books will do for yoga blocks and there will be modifications for ball exercises in weeks 1 and 2 if you don't have one. For weeks 3 and 4 a stability ball is suggested if you want to really progress but there will be alternative options for all ball exercises throughout.
Q: Is this programme suitable for beginners?
This is an all levels course with plenty of options all the way through. Be prepared to work hard. If you're a beginner and up for a challenge you'll be fine ... just go with a bigger stability ball.
Q: How much time do I need to commit?
You’ll practice for 30 minutes a day, 6 times a week for 28 days. You can practice at any time of the day as the classes are pre-recorded. There will be an optional Live Sunday check-in via Zoom each week with technique tutorials and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
Q: Where do I access the courses and live-streams?
On our brand new online studio that once you enrol, you will gain access to. You can bookmark that page in your browser and return to it when you need. All video lessons and live-streams will happen within the online studio. The live check in calls are at 7pm UK time every Sunday on Zoom.
Q: What if I can't make the live Zoom calls?
