Dear CPY Family,
I’m writing to share heartbreaking news. We’ve learned Trevor Tice, the founder of CorePower Yoga, has passed away. We often call ourselves a CPY family - today, we mourn together as one.
In many ways, CorePower is a manifestation of the best Trevor brought to the world: boundless energy, an electric smile, an immutable desire to improve. Those of us who had the privilege of working closely with Trevor know well the joy he brought to the world. And yet, perhaps the greatest tribute to Trevor is that he was a man whose joy has touched – and will continue to touch - millions of strangers he’ll never know.
I believe Trevor contributed more to the world than most dare to dream-- and the world will forever be a more joyful, more peaceful, and fundamentally better place because Trevor Tice was part of it.
We’ve spoken for the past several weeks about practicing peace – bringing unquestioned love and compassion to everyone we encounter. As a CorePower community, we need to live that more today than ever before.
At the appropriate time we will honor Trevor’s legacy. For now, let’s give ourselves permission and time to grieve and support each other as family and a community. What matters right now is for us to be there for one another.
