26 powerful embodiment tools to better support your clients
for safe and confident facilitation
in 2 timezones + optional peer groups
with feedback and support
to change states and traits
Most trainers, coaches, therapists and facilitators know that including the body is vital.
It’s a key part of who people are and often where the quickest, most powerful changes can happen. For getting unstuck and for changes to stick, it’s crucial.
BUT WHERE TO START? It can be confusing to know HOW exactly to work with the body, and it can feel scary to be a bit abstract or esoteric, as often taught.
Frankly there’s a lot of BS out there and even well-meaning embodiment teachers don’t always offer useful tools.
Working with the body is one of the quickest and most effective way to facilitate change. We are a body, not just a mind, after all.
Many facilitators, though, often feel a bit lost with specifically HOW to work with the body. Yes, they know it’s a good idea, but would like a simple system to rely upon for powerful change.
What specifically do you do with a client with low confidence or bad boundaries, for example (both to get deep insights and to shift things)?
If only there was a concrete and broad set of techniques that actually made sense…
The Embodied Toolkit is a system of 26 archetypal, non-athletic postures for facilitators. It’s a practical set of techniques matched to common client challenges.
The poses quickly shift states, open up new possibilities, and can be given as concise “homework” for lasting change.
Developed by an international team over a number of years, there is a posture for every situation along the broad range of human experience.
You don’t need to be a ninja master, Olympic athlete, or special tantric unicorn to use them. Embodied Toolkit is a straightforward system. It works. Simple.
A system of 26 postures to help clients shift state and gain insights
Beautifully filmed with both experiential and technical videos, this online course includes three months of (optional) weekly support sessions to help guide you towards certification.
This is a self-paced online course, but we’ve found that by offering live support sessions, people both deepen their learning and actually complete their certification (whilst having more fun doing so).
Please note that you can’t actually “fall behind” on this course, as the support sessions are just there to encourage you. When you certify is up to you. This provides the perfect balance of both flexibility and accountability.
Who wants to deliver powerful insights and breakthroughs with your clients
Who wants to deepen the psychological aspect of classes and stand out in a crowded market
Who wants to offer your clients practices they can take into daily life
The first 4 weeks of the course will emphasise personal practice and self-care, so if you are not a coach or facilitator, then this package may be for you. It will support you with an in-depth exploration of 8 Embodied Toolkit poses that’ll help with self-care.
Coaches and facilitators will also do these first 4 weeks, continuing on to learn all 26 poses to use with clients. They’ll have sessions specifically for applying Toolkit in 1-to-1 work (coaches, therapists, bodyworkers) and group work (yoga, dance, other movement teachers).
You will receive a certificate if you choose to go through the certification process.
The optional live webinars will be on Tuesdays at 10.15am or 6pm UK time (5.15am or 1pm EDT), starting on September 6 and ending on September 27 (for the self-care package) or November 29 (for the certification package).
You can choose the time that’s most convenient for you. Sessions will be recorded so you can view on the learning platform afterwards.

CEO and Founder, Embodiment Unlimited
“Mr Embodiment” is the author of Embodiment, The Body in Coaching and Training, and Embodied Meditation. He hosts The Embodiment Podcast (over 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.
Mark 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. Mark has headlined International Coach Federation events, taught at universities, and lived with the circus in Ethiopia, worked with celebrities and kissed a princess.
He 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. Mark 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.

“It’s nice to be offering a course that I know is extremely effective, as we’ve been doing it around the world for many years now.
For coaches, it gives them a very practical set of tools, an immediate “go-to” for almost any problem that a client may bring to them. It takes clients straight into a level of deep insight that you just don’t see when asking questions verbally.
Coaches tend to like that they don’t need to jump around or do anything too “alternative”, and frankly, just because it works so well. Often, the joke is that it’s TOO effective, in fact, because people experience such deep insights so fast. They also appreciate that they can give it as short but powerful pieces of “homework” for clients to take away, without requiring them to do anything too athletic or esoteric.
Many yoga teachers, of course, also use this system (in fact, we used to call it “Embodied Yoga Principles”, which is why you’ll hear it referred to as “EYP”) to add a layer of psychological depth to their postural yoga classes. It allows students to take yoga “off of the mat” and into life.
Embodied Toolkit has been part of my personal practice for years as a facilitator. Often, it’s the thing I do just before I teach, as it’s so good at state-changing. Whenever I’m working with clients, it’s one of my main tools.
This course is also beautifully filmed and edited (damn, we spent some cash!), so it’s a very high-quality recorded product. And the live sessions mean that the community of practitioners form real relationships along with actually doing the course.
I really like this combination of self-paced course, which allows people to fit it into their lives when it’s convenient, and the optional live sessions, which encourage people to not just leave the course unfinished in their email inbox somewhere.
This is one I’m proud of, so hope you can make it.”

COURSE STARTS IN
The course is designed for you to apply what you are learning with others, however if you are an aspiring coach or facilitator, it is also a good introduction to embodiment.
If you’ll be joining live and aiming to certify at the end of the live calls, we’d suggest spending around 3-5 hours per week (between live calls, peer groups, daily practice, and watching the online course).
You may instead choose to spread this out over time to make it more manageable.
We’d expect it to take at least fifty hours altogether (it may be more manageable to do an hour per week for a year, for example).
It is a combination of live weekly webinars (available in two timezones – 10.15am and 6pm UK on Tuesdays), live peer group meetings (optional) and pre-recorded materials which you will be able to access on a bespoke learning platform.
It may be better conceived as a pre-recorded course with bonus live sessions (don’t let the live sessions be the determining factor in whether it is for you or not – they’re a bonus to help you with accountability).
The live sessions start on Tuesday 6th September and finish on Tuesday 29th November 2022. However, you can take as long as you need to certify.
No worries. We offer these as extra support, but they aren’t necessary to certify. They will be recorded and available on the learning platform for you to catch up.
