What is "embodiment" anyway?

We'll give you a clear definition and models to understand it.

We'll help you understand how any current practices fit in with the wider world of Embodiment, and most importantly on the Foundations of Embodiment Course (FEC) you’ll get practical tools for your real life.

We’ll help you to answer:
“What’s real embodiment vs what’s just some nonsense Instagram hashtag?”
"How to find good teachers"
“What techniques really work?”

How can embodiment support you?

Embodiment can help with many areas of life, but FEC students over the years have said it's especially helpful for:

- Self acceptance and self care
- Stress management
- Managing overwhelm and exhaustion (critical for many now!)
- Conflict and reactivity
- Not feeling “at home” in the body generally (perhaps due to trauma)

FEC teaches principles which you can apply to any area of interest, whether you're a parent, manager, yoga teacher or whatever. You'll learn some very concrete practices, like centring, to take away and use for the rest of your life.

Let us save you time and energy

Imagine taking the most practical techniques from a variety of different practices; from yoga to martial arts, dance to coaching and trauma, and learning how to apply them in your everyday life.

Wouldn't it be great to learn from a breadth of techniques, and find the right ones for you.

Tools from experienced facilitators who know what works and what doesn’t, giving you an expansive toolkit to use in different situations.

Embodiment can help with many things including, stress, intimacy and parenting. It helps you feel more at home in your body and confident in your skin.

9 weeks of LIVE online learning
Refined & structured curriculum
Techniques from 10+ modalities
Diverse world-class embodiment teachers
Thriving international community

The Foundations of Embodiment Course (FEC) is a 9-week introduction to the world of embodiment.

What some world-renowned embodiment facilitators say about our work

“Embodiment is an essential component of healing and Embodiment Unlimited does valuable work bringing its importance to the public. I have enjoyed working with this innovative organisation.”

Gabor Maté

Renowned speaker and bestselling author

“Mark has a special ability to make embodiment work relevant and accessible.

Arawana Hayashi

Co-founder of social presencing theater, Presencing Institute

“The embodied work that Mark and the team does is both creative and practical. As a facilitator, I get a lot from teaching alongside them and always enjoy the mix of humour and pragmatism.”

Jamie Catto

Author, Facilitator, Producer – One Giant Leap

“Mark Walsh brings embodiment to life with passion, irreverence and grit. It makes a body want to celebrate!

Ginny Whitelaw Roshi

CEO Institute for Zen Leadership

“Mark and his team provide a learning experience which draws on many forms of embodiment, then integrates it in a way that forms a more whole process for growth.

Paul Linden

Trauma Educator, Embodiment and Aikido Teacher

Techniques from a variety of modalities

Martial Arts

FEC and CEC integrate some of the most practical and powerful tools from a wide variety of approaches. The diverse range of presenters have explored and refined what really works over years of practise in their field, bringing you the most practical techniques from each.

Our 5 learning pillars

Practise and Integration

You can’t read your way into embodiment. So, the majority of the learning is practise-based. Also, learning online allows you to properly digest from the comfort of your own home, in your own time.


Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of wishy-washy nonsense out there in the embodiment world. We cut the crap and can show you how to use embodiment with anyone you work with.

Multiple perspectives / no-guru

This certification is the combination of many diverse points of view on embodiment brought together. There is no guru, no “one way” of doing things, and you are not asked to believe anything.

Culture and trauma aware

We’re a culturally diverse team and understand trauma personally. Together, we speak 11 languages and have taught in over 50 countries. We also do everything from a trauma-informed point of view, with consent and care at the heart of everything we teach.

A sense of humour / non-woke

If you take yourself really (really) seriously, or you’re easily offended, then this isn’t the course for you. While we take what we do very seriously, we will be telling a lot of jokes and having a lot of fun while we do it.

The team

The team is extremely diverse, with each member bringing their own perspectives and insights. This means you’ll get the most practical techniques from a variety of different modalities and practices.

Course leaders

Mark Walsh

CEO & Founder, Embodiment Unlimited & The Embodiment Conference

“Mr Embodiment” 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 in the UK and Russia, 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.

Ever bought an online course and then not gotten around to doing it?

Yeah, me too. We've designed FEC to ensure this doesn't happen.

With a clear structure, a social discussion platform, peer accountability, and help from a dedicated course manager, you'll have little chance to waste your investment.

Most people who started FEC last year finished it (over 85%). But if you don’t complete it, you can come back next year FREE. Some people repeat it just for the extra practice and connection.You’re always welcome.

You might be wondering if now is the right time.

Well, the world desperately needs more embodied people. There are some brutal forces of disconnection out there, but dedicated people who take the time to practice can turn the tide.

You'll be well supported to get the most out of this course, it’s been well-designed for people with busy lives.

Maybe like me, after two years of global turmoil, you’re feeling a bit burnt-out, which is where FEC can be highly supportive – especially the peer connections you’ll make. I’m sure you’ll find it inspiring, too – it feels like a stand against much of the madness right now.

You may cry on FEC, but mostly you'll smile, be energised; and try not to laugh at my terrible jokes.

I hope to see you there.

Got a question about CEC that’s not answered in the FAQs below?

Please get in touch with Virginia on support@embodimentunlimited.com to make sure that CEC is a good fit you.


Yes. We cover a broad range of modalities and techniques, and going back to basics is never a bad thing.

It’s likely that we’ll look at topics and fields you haven’t had a chance to explore yet and show you how they all fit together.

Yoga and conscious dance teachers in the past for example found FEC gave them a new perspective on what they already loved and new things to explore.

Others may simply want a structured course and peers to develop alongside.

Yes. Don’t worry if you miss a few live sessions here and there, you’ll be able to catch up in your own time.

However, there is a minimum number of live calls you must attend in order to graduate.

Core content is being offered twice to serve different time zones.

No. FEC requires a time commitment of 5 hours a week minimum. If you aren’t prepared to commit this time each week, this isn’t the course for you.

That being said, the majority of the course is flexible and can be done in your own time. So FEC is suitable for a busy diary.

Hell no. The team who run the course have a sense of humour and like to have fun while they teach. If you’re easily offended, this isn’t the course for you.

Well, different styles suit different people. But if you’re sick of the guru-led, new-age stuff that’s out there – this course will be a breath of fresh air. 


We’re one of the best when it comes to clarity and practicality too, and like to have fun while we learn.


We’re happy to recommend alternative courses if this doesn’t sound like you.

This course not only contains live components in the form of webinars, but also incorporates peer group meetings in real time.

By tracking your process through our purpose-built learning platform and practice journals, we help you stay focused and ensure you see the course through.

Yes. Although please be mindful that working with the body can be triggering.

This course is purely educational, so if you are in need of therapy, please seek help from qualified professionals.
