Description

Join Wendy in this online Pilates workshop 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.

In Pilates, we often teach that “core control” involves hardening the abdominals, which is like driving your car with the “parking brake” on...treating your body like a biomechanical machine to be trained and fixed.

When we learn to “yield” and “let go” into gravity’s support, we are no longer “doing something TO our body”. Instead, we are having a powerful “conversation WITH our body” that allows excess tension to release, your natural respiratory rhythm re-sets, and your body awakens to its biointelligent wisdom.

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”.

Objectives

Test

I so appreciate how Wendy connected the upper and lower body to core. Core coordination is so necessary in today's society. After attending much continuing education, I needed more evolved thinking when working with my body. Thank you Wendy-I will need to hear these words many time

Fabulous workshop!! Was super excited to see Wendy here on Fusion! Such a powerful way to think about how you move - being embodied. I believe this is what has been missing in my body for years! Cultivating a biointelligent body is going to take bodies to a new level! Thanks so much Wendy. Hope you come back for more workshops! Bonnie

Slide 3

Hello Fusion Pilates EDU and Wendy, thank you for filming this workshop - Cultivation the Biointelligent Body. Really enjoying to move under the perspective of "core coordination" rather than "core control" .... I studied with Wendy in her year-long mentoring program in 2016-2017. For me, the journey of "core coordination" perspective has just begun. This workshop helps me to live in my vision and sure I'll keep reviewing it. Thank you! xIris
