The story behind the studio’s name…
“Esprit de Corps” Wikipedia definition:
Is a French expression meaning literally “Spirit of Corps” or “Spirit of Body” in English language. It denotes a strong, shared team spirit, mutual solidarity and fellowship, sense of duty, and devotion to a cause among the members of a group.
In 1999, when I started my business and was choosing my studio’s name, I felt the look of the word “Corps” suggested a dead body or corpse, whilst the actual sound of it was “Core”, which is considered the centre of the body.
Since our programs focus on the core, which strongly influences our posture and where most full-body, functional movement originates, I felt the word switch appropriate and relevant. We embrace the French and the English – very Canadian, eh?!
