This is part of our Meet Our Visiting Teacher Series where you get to read about some of the visiting teachers and educators in our studio.
Meet Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle, educator, author and movement teacher.
What have you been up to recently?
Collaborating with and mentoring practitioners around the world to create a shift in awareness from a biomechanical, body as machine to be trained and fixed approach…to a biointelligent/biotensegrity, body as a living process that is self-healing, adaptive and part of the natural, constantly changing, living world. This awareness cultivates a more embodied approach to ourselves in our personal practice and teaching clients…along with a more empathetic, relational way of being in life!
How long have you been a movement teacher / educator and what inspired you to become one?
40 years! I’ve been inspired to heal and grow myself by studying with pioneers in yoga, Pilates, Rolf Structural Integration Bodywork, Somatic arts and sciences, Embryology, Embodied Breathwork and Energy Medicine. I love this quote by one of my mentors, embryologist, Jaap van der Wal: “the forces that formed the body are continuously at work throughout life carrying the blueprint of health into manifestation at every moment.”
