Brian Zerega is as professional bodyworker and movement coach. Inspired at an early age by strongmen of antiquity whose abilities seemed supernatural, Brian has always been curious about the secrets of masters. Naturally gifted in Strength and movement and highly interested in holistic health Brian searched for a direction to channel his interests in physiology and ultimately decided to pursue studies in the healing arts. He attended the Swedish Institute of health science in New York and after graduating with a degree in massage therapy he moved to California and further refined his techniques at the Esalen Institute. In los Angeles Brian worked along side medical professionals, in private practice and as a bodyworker for 2 Cirque du soleil productions, ‘Iris’ and ‘Totem’. Brian worked and played pretty hard in los angeles and his love of movement and adventure left him with quite a few injuries. Despite all of the incredible training he received in alternative healing his bodywork could not completely heal his own injuries, and in fact these maladies would become his bane as well as his greatest teachers. It was after re-injuring his spine for the 3rd time that he finally let go and stopped doing everything. It was in that space that opened, without any knowledge of how to proceed that he began to explore movement on a much subtler level. It was here that Brian finally discovered his Core (KOR). Come discover the secrets of strengthening your body with Brian.
