The body moves in a predictably non-linear way. Madeline Black developed a series of trainings to immerse the movement teacher into a highly focused and engaging experience to better understand these body movements and patterns. Madeline Black's approach to training is an organic process focused on precision and highly tuned movement techniques. She customizes each segment to match the needs and energy of the participants, which provides a unique experience for each instructor.
