Embodied practice IN THE FLESH

Deepen your own understanding of embodiment, and pick up pragmatic coaching tools – with real people, together. Experiential, deep, enjoyable, face-to-face learning…away from Zoom!  


The Programme

Each day we will offer a morning practice of gentle embodied yoga and meditation, followed by workshops to enhance your coaching practice. These will be rich explorations of embodied practice with live support and feedback, with plenty of space for connection with other attendees. You will upgrade your embodied coaching skills.


The Tools

We will teach you Embodiment Unlimited tools such as the four elements coaching, Embodied Yoga Principles, centring and more. This in-person experience will give you the opportunity to get feedback from some of the core Embodiment Unlimited teaching team, to strengthen your personal practice, and allow you to work with embodiment more instinctively in your life.

Meet the facilitator


Mark Walsh

Founder of Embodiment Unlimited


“Mr Embodiment” (Mark Walsh) is the author of 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 (1000 teachers, 500,000 delegates). Seeing a theme yet?

He founded the Embodied Facilitator Course,  and has trained over 2000 embodiment coaches in over 40 other countries (some of which will even let him back in).

He gained an honours in psychology (despite been 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, taught at Moscow State University, 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.
