What’s your Heart Of Life?

Ellen Comerford has been teaching wellness for over 35 years (21 years on Beacon Hill), and founded Core De Vie, home of GYROTONIC Boston Beacon Hill, in 2006.  We are currently teaching via Zoom until further notice.

Ellen strives to empower people to reach beyond their perceived limitations.  Working in group sessions or private, you can re-educate your movement patterns to become pain free, stronger, more mobile, robust, and vital.

Our tools:  Restorative Exercise, Pilates, Gyrotonic, Yamuna Body Rolling, Advanced Myofascial Release, Postural, Gait and Movement Analysis, Strength, Flexibility, Cardio, and HIIT Training, Foot Fitness, Holistic Health Counseling, and more!, Core De Vie can help you realize your fullest potential in all aspects of life, and in turn contribute to the betterment of our community.


I love working with Ellen Comerford at Core de Vie. I feel that I am going to be able to avoid hip and knee replacements due to my gyrotonic training with Ellen. Not only is Ellen a wonderful gyrotonic teacher but she also gives numerous tips as to how to improve our lives by doing simple movements throughout the day. She helps out with nutrition ideas too! You will love working with Ellen too!

“Health, movement, community, joy.”  Ellen Comerford embodies her motto in all she does.  She is passionate about our health, always learning, always eager to support her clients’ well-being.  In 2007 and again in 2018 when severe medical situations weakened me, Ellen played a key role in healing me and restoring my strength.  Equally exciting and valuable, Ellen’s Gyrotonic training has transformed my experience of life in my body.  I now enjoy flexibility and agility that are truly life-changing in wonderful ways.  Ellen’s Core de Vie Wellness Studio is a gem of good health and good will in every way.

I have been working with Ellen for 18 months once a week for an hour session of sheer bliss. Ellen is so encouraging, patient, enthusiastic & constantly shows you how to improve your coordination, technique & strength. Ellen is continuing to increase her knowledge & teaching skills by taking various seminars and in turn instructs her clients with challenging  & varied experiences. Simply the BEST.

I’ve been going to Ellen for Gyrotonic and Yamana for many years. She is one of a kind. Special person and a tremendous instructor. Ellen knows how to help people manage their body especially at a certain age. She’s smart and knowledgeable about the body and I’m very grateful to have her in my life.

My goal was to move from walking modest distances with difficulty to playing 18 holes of golf pain free…walking 18 holes. Working 3 to 4 times a week over a 10-week period, Ellen got me there through a combination of Gyrotonic and Yamuna Body work.”

“Having a back problem for over 2 years, and being back from a long plane flight, I was nicely surprised with the most amazing and stimulating class I had with Ellen at the Core De Vie Studio!  Ellen is so enthusiastic about her work, is knowledgeable about the human body, correct posture and healing that made my entire class an unique experience. After one hour of class, arriving with very little mobility and feeling “stiff”, Ellen was able to do a few exercises with me that made me feel “cured”.  I will, for sure, schedule other classes with her!”

“Steve is the best.  I wish I could give him a thousand thank you’s!  My life is better every time I see Steve!!

“My foot is all better!!!”

“Core De Vie’s regenerating cream is AMAZING!!!!  I drive miles for it!!!”
(comment book at front desk)

“I have been working with Ellen for several months to help a creaky/arthritic hip, and to prevent a total hip replacement.  Utilizing Body Logic, core strengthening, and body alignment I have not only eliminated the need for any pain relief, but my PT has dismissed me from her practice as I have regained a normal range of motion.  If someone is looking for a holistic approach to healing the body, working with Ellen is the way to go!  She has years, and years of experience in the field with a wealth of knowledge that bridges several  modalities. I can not believe the results, and am so glad that I found Ellen!”
