Encompass with Madeline Black


  • A Body of Work 569 Ruger Street San Francisco, CA, 94129 United States (map)

The body moves in a predictably non-linear way. Madeline Black has 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's approach to training is an organic process focused on precision and highly tuned movement techniques. These immersive trainings are for experts in movement looking to advance their education, perception, intuition, and manual skills. Madeline escorts each participant through personal feedback on the process of working with the body. She customizes each segment to match the needs and energy of the participants which provides a unique experience for each instructor.

Encompass explores the various possibilities of movement choices to effectively create session-changing movement patterns and habits. 

  • Immerse yourself in an educational experience that is palpable and immediately useful
  • Improve your eye for identifying movement patterns
  • Understand the design of human movement in all aspects of the body: musculoskeletal, fascial, organs, fluids and more
  • Experience new techniques featured in "Immersive"
  • Confirm your touch and movement guidance
  • Improve your capabilities as a movement specialist
  • Begin to see your clients in a whole body way, addressing their needs that create change in the body immediately
  • Advance your teaching to a higher level of skill
  • Expand your intuitive gift, we all have them!

For those who have taken Madeline's other Intensive, Gather (offered at ABOW in January 2018), Encompass is different in that we will explore movement patterns, specifically sternum-sacral, and how they relate to the whole body, while solving movement strategies that are not functional. We will also practice techniques from the book Centered and bring it into a session model. Gather and Encompass may be taken in any order.
