Description:

What if you could slide under the conscious beliefs to the place of your client's longings and desires for change? Imagine monitoring your client’s system while guiding them to higher levels of function and anchoring these options with more certainty and less work. Cranial Sacral work combined with Rolf Movement Integration allows us to facilitate these goals and integrate the changes that emerged in our sessions. Our focus is the support and blending of Cranial Sacral and Rolf Movement Integration. We both work in this manner and want to share these skills with you.

This workshop will teach basic Cranial Sacral skills and how to utilize them in your practice. The cranial rhythms and pulsations give us direct pathways to neural remapping and trauma resolution. We begin with the anatomy and palpation of the cranial rhythms in the axial component. The cranial rhythms are not limited to the cranium, spine and sacrum. These pulsations are expressed throughout the body and its field. Tracking and utilizing these basic tidal flows is foundational for greater efficacy in Rolf Movement Integration. This efficacy is also true with neural and visceral manipulation, which is part of our work but not the focus of this class.

Jane was certified in Rolf Movement Integration in 1980 and joined the Rolf Institute faculty in 1988, teaching Phases 2 and 3 and Rolf Movement certifications. After a leave of absence, she has returned to faculty with a fresh ideas and an expanded view of our work. She has been teaching Cranial work since 1985.

Suzanne is a Certified Advanced Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner and has been a member of the faculty at the Rolf Institute for 17 years. Her studies also include Visceral and Neural Manipulation, Biodynamic Cranial and Polarity Work. She is a Rolf Movement Instructor-in-training.

Description:

This workshop is designed for Structural Integration practitioners and somatic educators who wish to gain skill in assessing movement inhibitions and in creating transformative and practical movement solutions for their clients. The first 3 days will focus on refining practitioners' embodiment of Rolfing® principles as foundational to body-reading precision. The second 3 days will incorporate movement education into the 10 series through  practice of interventions both on and off the table. We focus on our perceptual relationship to the ground and on the biomechanics of the feet.

Mary offers simplicity, practicality and a creative spirit. You will gain:
• Grounding in sensory-based movement education
•  A template for assessing walking patterns
• Body reading confidence
• Precise use of verbal cueing
• Practical interventions that incorporate movement into sessions
• Enhanced personal embodiment

Mary Bond studied with Ida Rolf from 1969 to 1972. Currently Chair of the US Rolf Movement® faculty, she has been involved in the development of movement education for Structural Integration from the early days with Judith Aston to the recent evolution through the work of Hubert Godard. She is the author of "Balancing Your Body" and "The New Rules of Posture", and producer of "Heal Your Posture: A DVD Workshop". It is her joy to share her perspective of movement education.

Description:

You know all about the Rolling Stones “FINAL” tours….well, this be the “Final Flow Show” for Vivian & Jane. It has been 10 years since these Two have taught together - and they’re doing it again! Come spend 3- days with these pioneers of the Rolf Movement Work; what they innovated 25 years ago is alive more now than ever - and ready to share with you.

Key Workshop Strategies:

  • Our clients learn and sense themselves and their world in unique ways, you’ll learn how to recognize and work with these differences.  Part of working with the uniqueness of each client is in the application of the session themes into daily life.
  • The integration of Rolf Movement into our work enhances our client’s embodiment.  Educating our clients in the remapping of their movement brain is empowering for them and makes our job easier and more creative.
  • Each day we will spend time with presentations, discussion, demonstrations of the work and hands-on exploration.  Analysis will be done in movement with a focus on understanding how to work functionally.  
  • Vivian and Jane have both been working over 35 years, and given their skills, you will do extensive seeing in movement and explore ways to with this information.   This understanding will be key in designing our strategies.  Depending on the needs of the group, there will be practicum’s and some full sessions.

Jane and Vivian are best friends and  were teaching partners for 25 years - both being members of the first RMI training at the RISI in 1979.  They created the first movement certifications for Rolfers and were key in the development of combined certification trainings.  They did extensive teaching in  Brazil and were instrumental  in the development of their unique certification programs.

Jane was certified in Rolf Movement in 1980 and joined the Rolf Institute faculty in 1988, teaching Basic
Trainings  & Rolf Movement Certifications.  After a leave of absence, she has returned to faculty with a fresh ideas and an expanded, re-energized view of our work.

Vivian Jaye was also certified in 1980 and taught the Rolf Movement Certifications until she retired in a few years ago. 

Suzanne Picard was certified as a Rolf Movement faculty member recently.  She has been on this journey with us since she joined the RISI in 1992.  We are delighted to have her knowledge, clarity and delightful spirit with us.

Description:

This training, designed for students and practitioners of Structural Integration, will be taught over two nine-day segments in Boulder, Colorado.  It emerges from a core curriculum developed over thirty years of working with and understanding the intimate role movement awareness, perception and neural remapping play in sustaining and evolving the connective tissue work of Structural Integration.

Part I:  The initial nine-days focus on cultivating sensory awareness, perception,  familiarity with personal movement patterns and igniting self-knowledge which emerges in tandem with  somatic inquiry.  Participants will develop a kinesthetic understanding of techniques and approaches designed to deepen intrinsic postural support, economy of movement, free restrictive breathing habits and further a whole body experience of internal spaciousness.

Our bodies are our personal "work-room" for inquiry and exploration. Through deepening an awareness of one's movement behaviors, through attention to sensation, afferent touch, and the recognition of  resource, the ability to listen to another’s system, as well as facilitate the understanding of their movement habits and perceptual biases, is enhanced. Interoception is the ability to interpret the sensations arising from your body, as well as enliven the lived experience of wholeness shape in both our form and expression. It is the seamless movement between interoception and exteroception (externally-oriented perception) that is key to unleashing a spectrum of movement possibility. As we touch, we are also being touched by our relationships, nature and environment. Your body is your guide in this two-way reciprocity. Specific approaches will be taught to complement the goals of a Rolfing series. In addition, the use of language to address and deepen a client’s sensory experience and evoke novel movement and coordination will be explored.

During the interim period, participants will be required to work with the techniques and approaches embodied in part I and write a short summary of their work with clients in private practice.

Part II: In this phase, students will learn to design, strategize and implement three sessions of Rolf Movement with a classmate-partner. The neurological underpinnings of body schema and body image will be explored. In addition, students will learn ways to work with Rolf Movement in a group setting and apply principles and understanding to the daily activities or the specific interests of their clients. (running, swimming, yoga practice, computer work etc.)

Carol Ann Agneessens, MS, RCST®, For over 37 years, Carol Ann has been exploring the body/mind connection through a practice of somatic inquiry. She has been a member of the Rolf Institute Faculty since 1994. As a Rolfing SI and Rolf Movement Instructor, she recognizes the transformative depth movement offers in sustaining the structural approach of Rolfing SI.

Suzanne Picard, is a Certified Advanced Rolfer and Rolf Movement Practitioner and has been faculty at the Rolf Institute for 17 years. Her studies also include Visceral and Neural Manipulation, Cranial and Polarity Work.

Description:

Ida Rolf told her early students to "follow my Recipe for 5 years or until you think you know what you are doing."  This advanced training is designed to consolidate the training of a Rolfer. We will use Dr. Rolf's recipe, and the values expressed there as a reference point, and a context for the class. We will work with you to integrate what you bring to the training from your own explorations. Our objective is to deepen your understanding of the work, and to refine your application of technique to become more economical and specific to the clients needs. One primary objective of the advanced class is to explore the nature of Rolfing SI to the extent that new information you learn will strengthen your practice and not dilute it.

As the early 10 series is a universal template, and useful to the widest range of body types, the advanced work is client centered and is applied specifically to meet the needs of the individual.  We will learn how to develop non-formulistic single and multiple session interventions.  There will be a high focus on the biomechanics of normal joint function, and specific techniques taught to release the common motion restrictions that interfere with normal function.   We will use the Rolfing Structural and Functional Taxonomies, Jan's Internal External model, and Hubert Goddard's Tonic Function seeing models.  This course organization will refine your ability to "see" the characteristic posture/structure signature of the body in motion, and enable you to derive meaningful information about intervention strategies. You will learn to teach your clients to use the work thru specific Rolf Movement directives, given both during the session, and homework for the client to continue with, post session.

While we have many learning objectives for this class, the primary one is that you the student take deeper ownership of the work, and carry on the investigation we are all involved in as a partner and a peer.

Jan Sultan’s initial encounter with Ida Rolf was in 1967 as her client. In 1969 he trained under her, and after having assisted several classes, was invited by Dr. Rolf to become an instructor in 1975. After further apprenticeship, Dr. Rolf invited him to take on the Advanced teaching. He currently teaches Basic Trainings, Continuing Education, and Advanced Trainings for the Rolf Institute. He feels strongly that his responsibility as an instructor goes beyond simply passing on what he was taught, to include the refinement and coherent development of the ideas and methodology taught by Ida Rolf.

Lael Katharine Keen comes from a family of Rolfers™. Both her mother and step-father trained with Ida Rolf and were members of the Rolf Institute Faculty before her. She has been on the Rolfing® Structural Integration and Rolf Movement® Faculty for the Rolf Institute, since 1994 and and is founding member of the Brazilian Rolfing Association. She is an also a practitioner and teacher (at the Advanced level) of Somatic Experiencing (Dr. Peter Levine’s innovative approach to treating post-traumatic stress through the body) and has been teaching Somatic Experiencing for the Foundation for Human Enrichment since 1998. She is a founding member of the Brazilian SE Association (SE Brasil) and a senior member of the Brazilian faculty. Lael also holds a 5th degree black belt in Ki-Aikido and has taught and studied Ki-Aikido most of her adult life. She lives in the south of Brazil with her husband and daughter.
