“Centring” is a key life-skills and a “go-to” for most coaches and trainers. It is however often loosely defined and badly, if not dangerously done. This is a class for anyone who wants to develop and sharpen their centring skills in this area, taking basic knowledge to the next level.
What we’ll cover
● The underlying principle of all centring training
● The three main categories of centring techniques
● 25+ different centring techniques
● Centring around pleasure as well as stress
● The 7 most common mistakes in teaching centring
● Cultural factors in centring
● Centring and trauma
● Creating your own centring techniques
I will teach you new useful things about centring, and improve your teaching of it or your money back. And you can kick me in the nuts. Really.
Why you should listen to me
I wrote the most comprehensive book about this topic, have 20+ years martial arts and yoga experience and have taught centring in over 50 countries including to large corporations and in war zones.
All coming should have attended an event with me before, where I caught centring, online or offline, so you will have the core ideas already. We won’t be covering muggle basics. If you have not and worked with me before, and you’re still keen to come, you can buy this (really swanky) recording of an event free of charge and learn from there first. All participants will get my e-book on centring to read ahead of the day, so you can come primed with questions.

“Not the type of course that comes in a folder to collect dust on your desk. I found the content real, accessible, and I was able to put it to practical use immediately.” – Kathryn Knock, Coach, Norfolk, UK
“These workshops connect your body to your mind and help to complete a soul circuit. Plug yourself in and enjoy more powerful coaching and facilitation.” – Antony Parry, coach and CTI coach trainer, Chichester UK
“It is nothing else but amazing how much I learned about embodiment in only a day and a half with Mark and Carol in Berlin. Our bodies talk to us. All of the time. They hold the treasures of untold stories for our success and fulfilment. They demonstrate where our minds make up stories of failure and limitations. They, as an integral part of us, are the foundation for connection. Our bodies talk to us. We’d better start and listen to them.” – Geert Hofman, coach, musician and author, Germany
“My participation enhanced my ability to talk about embodiment work, helped me gain confidence bringing this work to new audiences, and provided a very rich peer group experience that result in professional friendships” – Charlie Birch – professional dancer, Boulder, USA
“I now do in one session what I used to do in six” – Coach and coach trainer, Tel Aviv, Israel
“If you’re looking for training that will challenge and provoke you to learn about yourself in profound and surprising ways, then I highly recommend Mark as a trainer. He is funny, provocative, committed and cheeky. Above all, though, he really knows his stuff, and he lives and walks his talk.” – Aboodi Shabi, Executive Coach and Facilitator, Newfield coach trainer, London UK
