“Mr Embodiment” (Mark Walsh) is the author of three books: Embodiment, Working with the Body in Training and Coaching, and Embodied Meditation. He hosts The Embodiment Podcast (1 million+ downloads), and led The Embodiment Conference (1,000 teachers, 500,000 delegates). Seeing a theme yet?
He founded the Embodied Facilitator Course, and has trained over 2,000 embodiment coaches in over 40 other countries (some of which will even let him back in).
He gained an Honours in Psychology (despite being an alcoholic at the time), and has taught widely in the corporate world where he pretended to be a grown up for years, including with blue-chip companies (e.g. Unilever, Shell, Axa, L’Oreal) whom he charged wayyyy too much as they made him wear a suit.
He has also upset… sorry, taught… many yogis, NGOs, police officers and several militaries.
He has worked in war zones, and entertained over 50,000 children. He has headlined International Coach Federation events, lived with the circus in Ethiopia, taught celebrities and kissed a princess.
Mark is an Aikido Black Belt, and also has 25 years of experience of other martial arts, with yoga, bodywork, improv comedy, conscious dance and meditation.
Embodiment is his obsession, life’s work, and frankly at this point he couldn’t get a job doing anything else. He dances like your dad at a wedding, overshares about his gorgeous Ukrainian wife, and offends pirates with his swearing.
He is now tired of writing in the third person.
Patricia Aguirre is co-lead trainer on the Trauma Coaching and Courage to Lead courses and works extensively with women through private sessions and workshops.
She combines deep processes of shadow work through different models of therapy and trauma work, with almost two decades on the spiritual path.
Patricia weaves both of these visions into her work where she leads women into states of strength and empowerment, peace and fulfillment in life, as expressed by many of the women she has worked with.
Karin van Maanen is co-lead trainer on the Certification of Embodied Meditation and Embodied Toolkit courses.
She’s a yoga and meditation teacher with an MSc in Mindfulness Studies, and has been teaching compassion-based mindfulness full-time since 2008.
Karin delivers yoga teacher training courses and co-authored Embodied Meditation.
Karin has a background in community arts and works as a storyteller, often combining a range of embodied and creative approaches to support the personal and professional development of the people she works with.
Christina Dohr is co-lead trainer on the Certification of Embodiment Coaching and Courage to Lead courses.
She is a certified teacher of Feminine Yoga for women and uses dance and embodiment to teach workshops on boundaries and self-expression in women-only spaces.

She guides groups and individuals through embodied exercises while targeting greater self-awareness and personal growth.

“We’ve been producing quality embodiment education for years now. But up until today, it was just a big messy pile of awesome.
I know many people can’t afford our bigger courses but still want to learn and grow. Others simply don’t have the time.
I get it. Modern life is f**king mental. People just want our best stuff in an easy-to-access way, at an affordable price. Fair enough.
That’s why I locked Aussie Steve in a cupboard for weeks to create Embodiment Gems, a select, bespoke collection of the world’s embodied wisdom.
This subscription makes embodied learning accessible to everyone for an affordable, monthly fee.
I know, I’m a legend. You’re welcome.”

Your subscription is under your control, meaning you can pause or cancel your subscription whenever you like. No stress.
This isn’t some crappy corporate gym that ties you in for a year. Subscribe and unsubscribe as you like.
We want you to get the most out of your subscription, but if it’s not for you – you’re free to find the right learning for you elsewhere. All good.
Ask questions, geek out with peers, share and receive recommendations. Real, live human support in the Studio to help you learn and grow.
Skip to the front of the line in Mark and Patricia’s Studio sessions for 1-1 coaching on trauma, marketing, leadership, whether you should get a new cat, etc.
Access to recordings of Mark, Patricia and Steve's Studio sessions (our embodiment classes) to watch and refer back to whenever you please if you miss them live.
Try out Embodiment Gems for free for a week, and if it’s not for you, simply cancel before you pay anything.
We periodically ask you what you want, and also generally look at what videos are being watched (so we can recycle out those that people aren’t interested in).
There’s no personal data collected, other than you telling us what you want to see more of.
So don’t worry, we’re not doing some next-level Facebook / Google spying sh*t!
Anyone who signs up for for $19 a month (or $190 a year) will always pay that price. It’s only if you leave and come back at a time when the price has risen that you’ll pay more.
You can mark videos as “complete” as you go through the channels. This will also help to show your progress.
As a bonus, you’ll be front-of-the-queue in weekly free sessions with Mark, Patricia and Steve to ask questions about practice or get some free coaching.
The system keeps track of which videos are viewed more and less (no personal tracking though), and will automatically remove the videos that aren’t getting interest.
You won’t lose access to a video if you do like it, but for those who’ve shown no interest, it will be automatically removed so as not to clog up the channel.
We’ve got an audio-only option for every video so you can listen, no matter where you are.
In that case, you’re either an embodiment geek or a professional. We’d recommend checking out some of our courses or certifications or getting a Backstage Pass (subject to availability).
