Pelvic Floor Workshop
Feets Don't Fail Me Now
Hosted by Marcos Apodaca

Our feet are the foundation for how we stand, walk, play, sit, breathe (yes, breathe), and live in our daily lives. Without a sense of how the feet affect your whole body health, we are left to deal with issues like back pain, neck tension, heel pain, and tight hips.

In this workshop:

  • You will be introduced to the foot and its relationship to the whole body.
  • You will learn how to create healthy foot movement and engagement
    which will enliven the rest of your activities.
  • You will walk away with a new appreciation for your feet and exercises to
    help your feet serve you for a lifetime!
  • Saturday, October 12th | Time: 1:00 – 4:00pm
    Saturday, December 7th | Time: 1:00 – 4:00pm
    Price: $159.00 | Early Bird Discount: $139.00, before September 22

Pelvic Floor Workshop
Pelvic Floor Workshop
Presented By Ivy Baron & Pia Moreno

Together we will look at the anatomy of what we call the pelvic floor and explore how it is an integral part of our body’s system that allows for lift, without tension. Through the Pilates repertoire, breath work and somatic movement you will leave Pia’s and Ivy’s workshop with a deeper understanding (and hopefully a newfound friendship) with your pelvic floor.

  • Saturday, September 14th, 1-4pm
  • Price: $169.00

April Jones and Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle
Pilates and Biotensegrity – Flowing in the Fascial Matrix
With Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle
April Jones | Zurich Switzerland

Traditionally, in biomechanics, the focus of structural order has been from the ground up, with the pelvis playing its central (center of gravity) role. Within our biointelligent approach to movement, the significance of the force transfer of the fascial matrix through the “breathing spine” to the head and arms, tail and legs, needs to be considered to complete the picture.

In this workshop, we will explore moving within the CONTEXT of the 3Core Connections® Embodied Perspective (3CCEP), giving you an embodied access to:

  • Experiencing how to “listen” to the guidance of your body wisdom through the spatial motility of your internal organs, and how they support your movement, so the most difficult movements are experienced with maximum efficiency and minimum effort... “effort with ease”;
  • Experiencing a playful approach to the Pilates Repertoire... re-setting your nervous system’s vagal tone and primal connections...creating deeper understanding of the Basic to Intermediate/Advanced Pilates movements;
  • Discovering your “fascial elastic-recoil breath”, as an access to whole body core coordination and the continuity of “tension-compression” biotensegrity;
  • Discovering an updated fluid, fascial “biointelligent language” from your unique creativity, curiosity and perceptual awareness, by focusing on what’s working or what’s missing, rather than what’s right/wrong... which profoundly influences your approach to embo- died teaching and moving in your own practice and in life!

Embodied Biotensegrity Workshop with Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle
EMBODIED BIOTENSEGRITY
A 21st Century Approach to Movement and Special Conditions
with Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle

Please join us for an experiential inquiry into “Embodied Movement as Bodywork”… the ground-breaking shift from a pieces and parts, body as machine to be trained and fixed, Biomechanical approach to movement…..to a fascially coherent body as a living process that KNOWS how to self-organize, adapt and heal, Biointelligent/Biotensegrity approach.

Let’s explore, move and have fun together, while cultivating an embodied approach to Special Conditions like back, shoulder and neck pain, joint problems, SI instability and more! Learn to have a “conversation” with your body, rather than “fixing”…where we address a local problem from a global perspective.

We will explore fascia as a force transmission system formed by embryonic tensional forces through the matrix of our living architecture. By understanding this fascial network, beyond a “concept”, as movement and bodywork practitioners, we are more fully able to access our “Biotensegrity Body”.

When we become aware that the metabolic forces that formed every aspect of us in the womb are continuously at work as our shape shifting archetypal human blueprint throughout life, it changes the quality of our movement, and our ability to self-heal and adapt in challenging circumstances.

Course Objectives:

  • Discovering the timing, patterning and relationships that support awakening EMBODIED BIOTENSEGRITY
  • Cultivating your “elastic-recoil fascial breath” as whole body core coherence
  • Shifting from an isolated “muscular” focus to a global, fascial tension-compression focus
  • Exploring Embodiment… through Pilates, yoga and Somatic movements to impact acute and chronic special conditions
  • Discovering an updated, fluid, fascial “biointelligent language” and “embodied touch cues” from your unlimited creativity and perceptual awareness, by focusing on “what’s working” or “what’s missing”, rather than “what’s right/wrong”…profoundly influencing your approach to teaching and moving in your own practice… and in life.

Embodied Pilates matworkworkshop with Wendy
Embodied Pilates Matwork

Wendy is thrilled to announce her second online workshop with FusionPilatesEDU.com launching Aug 16, 2018!

Join Wendy in this pioneering online Pilates workshop, where we “shift” the conversation of how we perceive ourselves and our clients… from a Biomechanical “body as machine” that is either “right or wrong”…. to a Biointelligent “body as a living process”, growing and evolving ourselves in an “Embodied Pilates Matwork and MORE Flow”

Discover “Core Concepts” of embodied movement, as Wendy and Jennifer explore how partnering with gravity and spatial orientation shifts us from the “study of anatomy” to a direct experience of our body’s living architecture
Enjoy moving with Jennifer as she is coached by Wendy, using “Embodied Touch” cues that “deepen” your awareness of your movement, rather than “tell you how to do it right”

Explore an innovative approach to the Pilates Matwork, and then see how that builds with flow to more advanced exercises that even surprise Jennifer with their EASE!

Take advantage of our One Day Only (Aug 16, 2018) promotional discount.

Cultivating the Biointelligent Body workshop with Wendy
Cultivating the Biointelligent Body

I am thrilled to announce my first online workshop with FusionPilatesEDU.com has launched!

For the first time online I am offering a workshop I call Cultivating the Biointelligent Body. This workshop is designed to explore a biointelligent view of “core” …as a whole body coordination …from your foot, leg, hand, arm and head to your “breathing spine”…along with a new, updated view of your Pilates “Powerhouse”, from an embodied perspective.

You will learn valuable “embodied touch” cues, and watch the model's body release old patterning that created tendonitis and plantar fasciitis, through valuable awareness building movements using a Pilates mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and High Barrel. We all know that listening to your body is so valuable, and now you will see profound changes as they happen.

When we awaken to the embodied wisdom of our Biointelligent Body, we nurture a relationship with gravity and spatial orientation that is fundamental to knowing who we are, and where we are located in both our internal and external worlds. It is only through the physical body that we can experience this felt sense, which is “spatial medicine”.

Take advantage of the one day discount - I hope you enjoy!
