Embodying Your Living Architecture Through the Portal of the 3Core Connections® Embodied Perspective
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.
Course Dates & Pricing
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 the 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 inlet /armpits / palate / sphenoid / cranium.
- 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.
- Discovering how to move beyond stretching to release your psoas and access your core intelligence.
- 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.
Experience yourself beyond the biomechanical and dissective models to sense 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, Embryologist

When you reawaken to your innate biointelligent body, by listening to your body’s wisdom and guidance, and by allowing gravity to be your partner, instead of fighting gravity, you evoke “Core” as a relational way of being which creates a more embodied way of living, moving, and being in the world as self-healing, empathetic, adaptive beings.
