COREPOWER YOGA GURU TREVOR TICE FOUND DEAD

Authorities are investigating the death as suspicious, and the cause of death has not yet been released. “We don’t know what we have,” said homicide Lt. Mike Holden on Tuesday. “This may end up being a death, not a murder.”

Tice created CorePower Yoga in Colorado in 2002 and saw it grow into several states. The first studio in San Diego opened in 2006. Today, CorePower has more than 160 yoga studios throughout the US. “CorePower Yoga is a manifestation of the best Trevor brought to the world: boundless energy, an electric smile, an immutable desire to improve,” read the CorePower statement. “Trevor contributed more to the world than most dare to dream – and we will forever live in a more joyful, more peaceful, and fundamentally better place because Trevor Tice was part of it.”


“Due to the suspicious circumstances related to the death … San Diego Police Homicide Detectives were called to the scene and are currently investigating the incident,” say a report. Tice’s body was discovered by officers responding to a request to check on the property for the welfare of the resident.
