Core as Relationship... Embodying Your Voice & Vision
~ An Embodied Immersion into
Seeing, Sensing, Touching and Cueing Movement Awareness


What opens us to being guided by our body wisdom? We are discovering that there is a primal way of being, which we know intuitively, and which traditional cultures, animals and babies know as their true nature…being at home in your body, knowing how to self-regulate, relating to others, and learning to listen to your body’s guidance for self-acceptance and self-healing, so you can hold space for others.

Why that is so meaningful, is that from this life-altering perspective…

  • We open to “BEING” in our embodied whole body “core coordination”, instead of “OVER-DOING” abdominal “core control”
  • We develop “soft eyes” of empathy and support and learn to “meet one another and be met”
  • We discover that CORE, rather than a focus on the abdominals, or being perfect, is a dynamic biointelligent expression of a relational, grounded way of being with earth’s energy, and a spatial, awakened relationship with ourselves, one another, and our living environment
  • We learn to self-regulate in our movement patterning which creates discerning ways of seeing, sensing, touching and cueing awareness, and a profound way of re-shaping our innate biotensegrity body!

“When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through…then spontaneously, the body heals itself.”
---Ida Rolf, creator of Structural Integration (Rolfing) Bodywork

So how do we do this? Through my 40 years of teaching and mentoring experience with embodied movement and bodywork, I have come to the awareness that Joseph Pilates was more than a teacher of Contrology exercises…he understood that movement could be like bodywork, creating profound, life altering, fluid “shape shifting” in our tissues and in our lives.

Let’s stand on his shoulders, and take time to explore together:

  • Discover your personal “GPS”…your “relational tension-compression biotensegrity” movement patterning through the guiding principles of the 3Core Connections® Embodied Perspective… a powerful contextual framework to embodying the universal principles that underlie all great bodymind disciplines;
  • Awaken your body’s ability to self-regulate through your nervous system’s updated embodied awareness of “being breathed”, through heart-bodymind-soul balance, rather than “which way should I breathe?”;
  • Directly experience how pain from injury or habitual patterns from physical, social/mental or emotional conditioning can respond profoundly when approached through this embodied, fluid perspective;
  • Directly experience with partners… new approaches to seeing, sensing, touching and cueing patterns of walking, sitting and standing, so that gravity becomes a life affirming partner of spatial biotensegrity, rather than an enemy of compression;
  • Observe Wendy teaching two private sessions through this embodied perspective, bringing the concepts to life;
  • Partner with one another to explore how teaching “CORE to CORE”, with Wendy’s coaching guidance, awakens you to “YOUR EMBODIED VOICE”… a deeper, intuitive awareness of your own and your client’s “fluid biotensegrity” so that your somatic intelligence, ability to self-regulate, and the health of your system, supports an imbalance or problem from a global perspective.
  • We will, then, complete with a dynamic exploration of what was experienced, and how to support your continued progress.

Embodying Your Living Architecture Dublin Workshop
“Embodying Your Living Architecture…Through the Portal
of the 3Core Connections® Embodied Perspective”
With Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle

The 3Core Connections® Embodied Perspective (3CCEP) empowers us to find our own voice and teaching style. Are you willing to give yourself time to explore, be curious and discover? Would you like to cultivate how “where you are coming from”...Your SETUP… greatly affects your results in your own progress, and with clients?

It is through this portal of “embodied awareness”, that we move beyond static “muscle/bone” cadaver based, biomechanical studies… to a fluid, fascial “biotensegrity” perspective, and an inquiry into “what is CORE…from the body’s perspective.” The 3CCEP allows us to access and sense our “living architecture”…our body’s vital relationships from foot to head and hand that support us moving in the world with a global awareness that grows us as fully alive, aware, empathetic beings, who are self-healing and adaptive.

Let’s explore together:

  • Discovering the embodied relationships and patterning that supports awakening the “biotensegrity” of your internal connections and “Domes of Uplift”:
    • Domes of your Lower Core…feet/inner ankles/pelvic floor/palate
    • Domes of your Central Core…pelvic floor/respiratory diaphragm/palate
    • Domes of your Upper Core…hands, respiratory diaphragm/thoracic
    • How they all interrelate and “ROOT through your pelvic and shoulder girdles” to your “breathing spine”…integrating your whole body in relationship with the gravitational field and spatial orientation…what Ida Rolf, creator of Structural Integration Bodywork, called “Spatial Medicine”
  • Discovering how “Being Breathed”… is an updated approach to the “Pilates Powerhouse”, engaging your Lower, Central and Upper Cores from pelvic floor to palate;
  • Experiencing the Pilates repertoire from an embodied perspective…shifting awareness from “abdominal core control” to “whole body core coordination”;
  • Partnering with one another to explore how teaching “CORE to CORE”, with Wendy’s coaching guidance, supported by your own body wisdom, awakens you to “YOUR VOICE”…a deeper, intuitive awareness of your own and your client’s “fluid biotensegrity”;
  • Experiencing yourself beyond the biomechanical, dissective model, to sensing yourself as a self-healing, self-regulating, adaptive organism…a primal, embryological perspective that is transformational;

“The forces that formed the body are continuously at work throughout life, carrying the blueprint of health into manifestation at every moment”
--Jaap van der Wal, MD

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!

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!
