Death of CorePower Yoga Founder Could Be Accidental

After San Diego homicide detectives investigated what they considered the suspicious death of CorePower Yoga founder Trevor Tice at his home last December, their latest conclusion is that Tice's injuries were caused by an accidental fall. An exact cause of death had not been officially cited by the medical examiner at the end of last month, saying all test results were not completed.

The 48-year-old Tice, a native of Telluride, founded CorePower Yoga in 2002 in Denver, Colorado, after sustaining a climbing injury that limited his physical activities. He then grew the business to more than 160 studios, some in other states. Although he was no longer involved in the day-to-day operation of the company, Tice was still considered to be "a pioneer in the industry who helped bring a less esoteric, more fitness-oriented vision of yoga to the masses."

First reports stated that when a friend had gone to Tice's residence to check on him and repeatedly called out attempting to have him to answer the door, the neighbor did not get a response. When he looked inside the house, which was in the process of being renovated, he saw "troubling circumstances" and called authorities. After Tice's body was discovered on December 12, news reports said it appeared he had been beaten. The San Diego Tribune reported during that time that when the autopsy was complete, it was sealed while the investigation began, and while other tests were being conducted.

A company spokesperson for CorePower Yoga had stated in December that they were deeply saddened over Tice's sudden death. She said, "Our community is grieving this tragic loss and honoring Trevor's tremendous legacy."
