As the kid who could never run the mile in elementary school, J.C. Lippold is passionate about creating safe spaces for EVERY person to encounter their strongest, brightest and boldest self. J.C. is a marathon runner, an E-RYT 200 Certified Yoga Teacher, [solidcore] Coach, and a man constantly fueled by the students who show up and inspire each and every day.
A Minnesotan born and bred, J.C. spent time opening up new studios, training teachers and teaching yoga all across the country before returning home in the summer of 2015. Since then J.C. has been teaching yoga full time at CorePower Yoga, coaching one of the most intense and body shaking workouts at [solidcore] and directing theatre across the metro.
In the studio, J.C. has a boundless ability to create graceful and grace filled spaces. He invites people to be present within the moment at hand and encourages students never to under (or over) estimate what one needs from their workout each day.
J.C. is ecstatic to be a Fitbit Local Ambassador as it is going to allow more bridges to be built for folks who are looking to get their steps in, be motivated and supported by one another and to connect with the amazingly inclusive and electrifying fitness tribes in the Twin Cities year-round!
