Istanbul, Turkey – Working with the body for trainers and coaches, 19 – 20 March

This is an experiential training for those wishing to develop practical skills working with the body in training and coaching. Using posture, breathing and movement helps clients go deep quickly and creates lasting results. This training will give you both a greater personal insight and a clearer overview of the field as well as tools you can use the next day. Our embodiment determines how we think, how we feel, how we are perceived by others and what we achieve, so is an extremely helpful area for facilitators to address. Coaches know the body matters and this is a training to clarify how, and give you many useful tools. It is for both business facilitators wanting pragmatic techniques, and for those already skilled in working with the body to transfer their skills to organisational work.

The second day builds on the first for professionals wanting to use practical embodiment tools in their work. It is a pragmatic, experiential training for those who want to develop skills working with the body in training, coaching and facilitating, or transfer body skills from yoga, dance or martial arts to business work.

Who this training is for:

  • Business and life coaches, trainers, facilitators and consultants
  • Teachers, therapists and those in other helping or educating professions
  • Anyone looking to develop their individual leadership or grow as a person

Come if you’d like to gain:

  • A deeper and much clearer understanding of the relevance of body awareness, posture and movement to your work
  • Practical embodied tools you can use with clients immediately
  • Tips on how to make this work accessible within a business environment
  • Knowledge of how to work with the body confidently and safely
  • Improved self-awareness – what is hidden that is limiting your work?
  • Bodily leadership and influencing skills
  • Techniques to manage pressure and complexity
  • How to better “read” others and employ your intuition
  • How to develop the four aspects of embodied intelligence

Testimonials

“Not the type of course that comes in a folder to collect dust on your desk. I found the content real, accessible, and I was able to put it to practical use immediately.”

-   Kathryn Knock, Coach, Norfolk, UK

“I was impressed and inspired by the way which Mark conducted the day, he was like an orchestra conducter, leading people through the structure of the day with enough freedom in the form for people to explore and express themselves in meaningful ways. It was a wonderful day with a great mixture of learning,laughter and play,but related to the context in a serious way. He successfully steered us through experiences which gave people insights and understanding into embodiment and integrative methods of personal and collective practices, sharing how helpful it is to be aware and present, responsive to internal and external stimuli in creative ways…Mark is an exceptional trainer and I would thoroughly recommend him for his perceptive skill and responsiveness to the issues arising in the moment,he has a toolbag of techniques and methods which are accessible and useable in a variety of contexts, work,relationships and day to day living (LIFE!)…”

- Ady Griffiths – mindfulness and yoga teacher, UK

“These workshops connect your body to your mind and help to complete a soul circuit. Plug yourself in and enjoy more powerful coaching and facilitation.”

- Antony Parry, coach and CTI coach trainer, Chichester UK

“It is nothing else but amazing how much I learned about embodiment in only a day and a half with Mark and Carol in Berlin. Our bodies talk to us. All of the time. They hold the treasures of untold stories for our success and fulfilment. They demonstrate where our minds make up stories of failure and limitations. They, as an integral part of us, are the foundation for connection. Our bodies talk to us. We’d better start and listen to them.”

- Geert Hofman, coach, musician and author, Germany

“My participation enhanced my ability to talk about embodiment work, helped me gain confidence bringing this work to new audiences, and provided a very rich peer group experience that result in professional friendships”

-   Charlie Birch – professional dancer, Boulder, USA

“I now do in one session what I used to do in six”

- Coach and coach trainer, Tel Aviv, Israel

‘Great conducive trainer delivery style with a passion for the subject and an aptitude to keep things up-beat and varied to gain everyone’s interest. Everything from the ‘heart’ which is a big thing for me not just going through the motions. We are tough strong bunch and I got the impression everyone got something from yesterday’s session so THANK YOU! It was great and I’m looking forward to next session!’

- Kirstie Hawton, Training and Development Manager, Virgin Atlantic, UK (on a corporate embodied learning session)

‘This transcends the realms of the normal corporate training and lifts the lid to real insight and potential’

- Sue Bottomley, Leadership consultant and co-founder of the International Coaching Federation, London, UK

“If you’re looking for training that will challenge and provoke you to learn about yourself in profound and surprising ways, then I highly recommend Mark as a trainer. He is funny, provocative, committed and cheeky. Above all, though, he really knows his stuff, and he lives and walks his talk.”

- Aboodi Shabi, Executive Coach and Facilitator, Newfield coach trainer, London UK
