Centered - By Madeline Black

Madeline Black is a leader of movement and exercise education, and she has been a source of education for the Pilates community. She is known for integrating movement science, osteopathic theory, manual therapy, and energy work. She can now add author to her list of credentials.
In her book Centered, Madeline Black offers an interdisciplinary approach to physical training, combining the newest advances in science, and integrating the movement systems of Pilates, yoga, Gyrotonic® and other fitness disciplines. Centered clearly describes the complex connections of the musculature, fascia and joints and their implications for movement re-education and healing. It weaves science and philosophy bringing meaning to function versus structure and body dysfunction.
This richly illustrated book offers Pilates instructors the education and practice to advance their work to become movement practitioners, learning to fully grasp biomechanics and information on posture and its dysfunction to sufficiently implement changes for clients.
Madeline filmed her workshop, Centered, as a supplement to her book. It can be viewed independently and it can also add a visual element to the content in the book. She also filmed an interview with Kristi Cooper where she discusses her book and she thinks it will help Pilates instructors become better teachers.
To purchase this book, you can go to Madeline's website or to the publisher's site.

Hello, I have the book but have yet to watch the workshop, it is mentioned in the book that we can access the videos in the book through pilates anytime. Can this be done independently of the workshop or only in conjuction with the workshop?
Tova ~ You can watch the workshops independently and in conjunction with the workshop. There are QR codes in the book that you can scan to watch individual chapters or you can watch the entire workshop on the site. The code to access the workshop is also in the book.
