Wendy’s approach 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” determines the difference between controlling your body, or having a conversation with your body wisdom’s guidance.
Your set up 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.

The body moves in a predictably non-linear way. Madeline Black is developing a series of trainings to immerse the movement teacher into a highly focused and engaging experience to better understand these body movements and patterns.
Madeline’s approach to training is an organic process focused on precision and highly tuned movement techniques. The “Immersive” trainings are for experts in movement looking to advance their education, perception, intuition, and manual skills. Madeline escorts each participant through personal feedback on the process of working with the body. She customises each segment to match the needs and energy of the participants which provides a unique experience for each instructor.
This Certificate Course is currently taught online by BASI Pilates faculty, Ashley Ritchie. The course will give you an in-depth understanding of the process the mother-to-be is going through within and the physical changes within that pregnancy brings.

Hormonal affects from pregnancy, birthing and feeding the new born as well as Post pregnancy training protocols will be addressed. Diastasis Recti, what it is and how to treat it will also be discussed in detail. The format is Zoom based and includes lecture but also plenty of opportunities for movement too.
What moves us? Three words that have been on my mind for a number of years says Karin Gurtner, creator of the Slings courses. Rather than looking for exclusive answers, I let them inspire me to create a movement concept that values science, functional anatomy, humanness and the imponderable alike. I called it Slings because of the myofascial slings that modulate motion and the somato-psycho-emotional-social slings that motivate our movements.
Essentially Anatomy Trains in Motion is an anatomy course in which you will increase your depth of knowledge and gain a new perspective of Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept in relation to body-minded movement. The course is filled with functional anatomy, movement relevant information and practical applications that not only sound good on paper, but also work well in real life. Anatomy Trains in Motion lies the foundation for the Slings Myofascial Training education.
At the heart of the course are the myofascial meridians. Understanding the lines’ integral anatomy, workings, sensory qualities and relationships are invaluable for body reading, clear movement intention, lesson planning and teaching. Yes, myofascial meridians are so much more than ‘lines’ that can be ‘superimposed’ onto exercises!
