"Freddie's Embodied Anatomy Workshop is a perfect fusion of anatomy and in-depth awareness of our own anatomy through actually experiencing our body systems(bones, muscles, fascia, etc.) through movement and imaging. I loved it. This should be a mandatory class for all fitness professionals."

“Completing Freddie's Embodied Anatomy Workshop was such an invaluable springboard into my certification training to be a Pilates Instructor. Not coming from a dance or movement background, I was a complete novice to a lot of the structures (bones, muscles, fascia) of the body.  Freddie is a patient, adaptable and thorough teacher who very much cares that you understand what you are learning and feel confident translating that information into your practice/teaching. A great class, do it!”
Tiffany May, Certified Pilates Trainer
