Description

Madeline Black teaches her concepts of whole body support with optimal alignment created and reinforced by gravity which will create freedom of movement. Learn how the myo-fascia core and diaphragmatic systems help to organize healthy movement patterns for strength.

Observe Madeline teaching a first time client how to connect into herself to find the coordination of engagement for whole body integration.

The workshop begins with an explanation of the anatomy, alignment, and movement mechanics. Then we progress into challenging non-apparatus exercises.
