What You'll Need:
Join Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle as she explores the intersection of where biomechanics meets bio-intelligence. She strives to take you beyond “pieces and parts” Pilates cueing to discover your wholeness, and a deeper relatedness with yourselves and one another. Her goal is to help you achieve this connection, increase motility within your body by finding just enough effort for the movement, and understand your relationship with gravity and your environment.


- Learn about core relationships within the body from the perspective of "tensegrity" in which we discover that everything is connected to everything else.

- Understand the differences between biomechanics and bio-intelligence, and how bio-intelligence allows the body to have a conversation with itself in relation to gravity and space.

- Experience primal postures to return the body to its natural movement patterns and understand the concept of grounding to create lift.

You can print out Wendy's handout and poster to follow along and take notes.

I'm really enjoying the workshop so far I was curious if we could have access to download the handout Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle refers to. Without it I feel I'm missing something essential. Thank you Amy

Amy ~ Thank you for your forum post. We don't have this handout at the moment, but I will ask Wendy to see if she can send it to us so we can add it to the workshop. I hope you are enjoying it so far.
