6-month LIVE online course
Become an embodied facilitator
Learn practical embodiment techniques that you can actually use in your coaching and training
Tuesday 13th April 2021
Embodiment is a huge subject
The embodiment field is made up of many different elements.
As a facilitator looking to bring the body into your work, or an aspiring embodiment trainer – it’s hard to make sense of it all.
“Which teachers are legit?”
“What techniques really work?”
“What’s best for more ‘mainstream’ clients?”
And while learning about one or two practices really helps, learning techniques from a variety of practices and modalities will give you a broader range of tools to use with your clients. And a better understanding of the field as a whole.
Wouldn’t it be great to learn what works for you and your clients?
Imagine taking the most practical techniques from a variety of disciplines and learning how to use them with your clients to see results faster.
Tools and best practices from people who understand how different modalities integrate, highlighting the strengths of each. People who can help you make sense of what’s out there and most importantly, teach you what works in the real world.
No one person or style has it all, but they all have something to offer. With the right guidance, you can learn how it all fits together and what works best for you.

Feeling rough right now?
Right now a lot of people are not at their best, maybe feeling burnt-out or run down. It’s understandable.
With this in mind we are running FEC to be especially nurturing and supportive this year.
While it is an educational course and not group therapy, many of the practices in it are resourcing and will see you through tough times. The self-care, centring and other self-regulation techniques that you’ll learn will be especially helpful, if things are challenging.
We also know that some people are a bit “Zoomed out”, so we keep webinars concise, fun and interactive.
What is CEC?
Embodiment tools for your clients
2.5 months | 6 hours a week
The Certification of Embodiment Coaching is designed to help you implement what you learn from FEC into professional environments. Giving you powerful tools and techniques to use when working with clients.

Integrating trauma awareness & neuroscience
Trauma awareness and an understanding of neuroscience are both essential for effective coaching and are integrated throughout the course.
The team brings together a breadth of trauma knowledge, from working closely with the likes of Paul Linden, and in modalities such as TRE, as well as experience in war zones and with other traumatised groups cross-culturally. This work is a big part of what we do and is really important to us.
Throughout the course we’ll look at consent, boundaries, calibration and many other principles that are key to safe facilitation.
Knowing how the brain works and how it develops is helpful for achieving real, lasting results with your clients. So throughout the course, you’ll get experience-based insights into what really works and an opportunity to explore them for yourself.
Once you complete FEC you will
Once you complete CEC you will
Once you graduate you will be given a certificate as evidence of you completing the course.
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.”
Renowned speaker and bestselling author
“Mark has a special ability to make embodiment work relevant and accessible.“
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.”
Author, Facilitator, Producer – One Giant Leap
“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.“
Trauma Educator, Embodiment and Aikido Teacher
“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
Techniques from a variety of different modalities
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.

A message from Alexandra & Mark
“Teaching embodiment is our bread and butter and we’re world-class at it.
That’s not very modest, we know. But it’s true! 🙂
With covid forcing us to cancel our in-person training this year, and the conference giving us a new-found love for online learning – it feels like a good time to bring embodied learning online. And it has huge advantages for everyone.
It’s more affordable, more accessible, less stressful for some, and being able to spread the learning out leads to better integration.
After distilling down the most practical learning from our flagship events, the Certification of Embodiment Coaching is the most in-depth embodiment course that we’ve offered online. Ever.
As the world falls into disconnection, embodiment coaches are needed across the globe now more than ever. So being able to train aspiring coaches and experienced facilitators alike in using embodiment is a real privilege for us.
So if you want a practical introduction to embodied facilitation, this course is for you.“
Alexandra Vilvovskaya, Director & Co-Lead, EFC Russia

Non-facilitators are welcome to complete the Foundations of Embodiment Course (FEC), however, the Certification of Embodiment Coaching (CEC) is aimed at trainers, coaches and aspiring embodiment facilitators.
If you’re a yoga, dance or martial arts teacher, you are also welcome on CEC, so long as you are comfortable working with people 1-to-1.
If you are interested in coaching and facilitation, CEC is a great introduction to the field. However, you will be required to practice with clients or volunteers in order to graduate.
Yes. We cover a broad range of modalities and techniques, and going back to basics is never a bad thing.
It’s very 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.
No. The extended package (CEC+) includes the same amount of CPD points as CEC. The additional courses and other extras do not hold any CPD value.
No. Both FEC and CEC require 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 both FEC and CEC are suitable for a busy diary.
We aim to put FEC & CEC on annually, although that isn’t promised. Also the price will likely increase in future years.
Yes. This course is designed to give you practical tools that you can actually apply to mainstream/business environments. Many of the teachers have worked extensively at a high level in corporate environments around the world.
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.
Will I be a certified coach at the end of the course?
Graduating from the Certification of Embodiment Coaching does not mean you are a certified coach.
This course gives you some great practical tools to apply to your coaching and facilitation.
If you are already an ICF-certified coach, we are in the process of getting FEC and CEC accredited.
For more details on this please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
Anyone can buy this course and attend what they want. However, if you want a certificate of graduation, you need to do the following:
- Attend 75% of live calls
- Attend opening and graduation calls (dates)
- Complete all coursework
NOTE: If special life situations arise, we are flexible and will make exceptions where necessary.
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.
I’ve already bought so many online courses that I haven’t completed. How do I know I’ll finish this one?
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. Weekly handouts, homework and occasional assignments will be issued as part of both FEC and CEC, helping you properly digest the learning.
Does this course have ICF accreditation? Or do I get any certificate or a proof of completing the course?
CCE (Continued Coaching Education points) with ICF for both FEC and CEC are in the accreditation process.
Though we don’t recommend any education just for the sake of credit points, if this is a dealbreaker for you, we will refund the course fee if the application gets denied.
You will also receive a certificate after finishing CEC and a proof of participation for FEC if all the coursework is completed within the allotted time frame (2 weeks) after each part of the course.
Completion at a later point will not be rewarded with any certificates or proof.
Tutorial groups start on13th April at 9am UK time and will be hosted by Mark Walsh.
1-to-1 coaching with a dedicated member of the team will be arranged by the team once you join the programme.
