Training Fitness Professionals and the Public to move well and feel better.
3-D Workout™, our flagship product, is a unique conditioning program developed by Dianne L. Woodruff, CMA, PhD and inspired by the work of Irmgard Bartenieff and Rudolf Laban. The goal of 3-D Workout is to help clients achieve life-long fitness and coordination through integrated, harmonious and biomechanically-correct movement sequences. Learn 3-D Workout from DVDs, downloads, YouTube videos and classes for the public by trained, certified instructors.
Dr.Woodruff has been teaching for 35 years, holds a doctorate in Somatic Education and is a Certified Movement Analyst. Recently retired from a private practice as a myofascial pain specialist and movement therapist, she continues to write, produce videos, speak and teach. She is internationally recognized for her teaching and innovative leadership in wellness and fitness.
In her philosophy, fitness should be age-appropriate and organic; it should be designed, not just copied from a book. Her exercises are designed using the space around the body (the kinesphere) rather than arbitrary, isolated joint movement. These whole-body exercises produce improved strength while activating the fascia (soft tissues) for whole-body connectivity, remodeling and function.
She is currently at work on a "chair" version of the Body Integration floor exercises, a revised manual for Level I instructors with new drawings and a book on fitness for the general public. An entry for Wikipedia on Irmgard Bartenieff will be posted in the fall of 2013.
