20 Jun FAMI Alum Fun: Madeline Black
As we gear up for another highly-anticipated FAMI workshop, we reached out to some distinguished teachers and practitioners for their perspective on FAMI and its lingering effects. See what master teacher Madeline Black, author of Centered: Organizing the body through kinesiology,movement theory and Pilates techniques had to say:
“Studying through seeing, touching the body in the presence of true experts is by far a powerful way to expand one’s skill as a movement practitioner whether teaching Pilates, Yoga or fitness. FAMI is an unique experience giving you the opportunity to experience the human body in a way that will change how you see movement, touch the body and comprehend the connectedness of all the systems in movement. I highly recommend FAMI to all people working with the body.”
