Dr.Woodruff has been teaching for 35 years, holds a doctorate in Somatic Education and is a Certified Movement Analyst.

She is internationally recognized for her teaching and innovative leadership in wellness and fitness.
Fitness should be age-appropriate and organic; it should be designed, not just copied from a book. 3-D 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.

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.
3-D Workout™: The Chair Edition teaches you to use the space around you, to shift your weight, to discover new ways of moving. The Chair Edition includes a 38-minute instructional segment that walks each client through proper technique, movement execution, use of space and breathing. A 15-minute workout segment leads the mover through these 13 sequences at a faster pace. Go to the store now for your copy of Dr. Woodruff’s innovative chair program.
Watch the trailer and then view each complete variation. Refresh your conventional practice with new movement and new ideas
This series came out on YouTube in the spring and summer of 2017 and builds on my fitness program, 3-D Workout™. In each video, I clearly demonstrate the whole-body movement, coordination and dimensionality (use of space) specific for that sequence. Watch how an exercise changes when the focus shifts from muscle isolation to movement thru space. You can combine these new sequences with the workout you’re already doing and end up with a richer, unique conditioning product.
In addition to the videos, for each variation I have provided detailed notes on Benefits, Practice Tips and Movement Ideas. Click on each variation’s title to bring up my Learning and Teaching notes.
The thing that really stands out and makes 3-D so different from trending approaches is that 3-D actually organizes the body with regards to function. It seems that all the others are just doing movement for the sake of doing the movement, but 3-D actually has an inherent organizational and logical process.
