Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle is an International Leader in Embodied Movement, with a 40 year background in Holistic Health, and lifelong studies and collaborations with distinguished pioneers in Pilates, yoga, Structural Integration Bodywork, Somatic Arts and Sciences, Dynamic Breathwork and Energy Medicine.
Her vision has revolved around illuminating and evoking the universal core principles that underlie our human movement gestural patterning, with a focus of having clients and teachers of any discipline discover how to be vitally alive, adaptive, resilient
and self-healing, just as Joseph Pilates envisioned in Return to Life.
Wendy has studied Pilates with 5 of the Pilates Elders, beginning with Romana Kryzanowska, then with Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Ron Fletcher and Lolita San Miguel. Additionally, her extensive yoga background, and studies with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Emilie Conrad, Susan Harper, Judith Aston, Tom Myers, The Guild for Structural Integration, Hubert Godard, and Phillip Beach, give Wendy a unique voice in the Pilates Community. Her embodied 3Core Connections® Perspective of Lower, Central and Upper Cores, honors the body’s experience of 'Core as relationship… with gravity, ourselves, one another and our environment.' When we live deeply and fully in our bodies, we are able to connect to authentic human movement, as well as the dynamic stillness of the center, discovering how that shapes our behavior, emotional resilience and
empathy for one another and the natural world that supports and sustains us.
Wendy teaches nationally and internationally, including Balanced Body: Pilates on Tour, was a Founding Member of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA®), was on the original role delineation committee for creation of the PMA® exam, is a Second Generation NCPT, and a Mentor in Balanced Body’s Passing the Torch Mentoring Program.
Wendy continues to make an impact in the Pilates Industry featured in the 2013, 2016, and 2018 issues of Pilates Style Magazine.
