Welcome to the Application Process for

Classroom Clinics in Boulder, Colorado

New here? See What is Rolfing

Rolfing® Structural Integration is a combination of manual therapy, mostly myofascial mobilization techniques, and movement awareness education. 

Clients receive the benefits of better alignment within gravity, a sense of ease and grace, usually improved range of motion, and the ability to find good posture without strain. There should be no pain experienced; our students learn a wide range of touch skills and work with the client so that the treatment feels effective throughout. 

Part of our students' rigorous training includes working with clients from the community. There are several opportunities for you to participate in our clinics at a reduced cost, most importantly to receive the original Ten-Series as developed by Dr. Ida Rolf at a very much reduced rate.

To apply:

Step One: Check clinic dates and times HERE against your personal calendar to make sure you can attend every session on time.

Step Two: On the same page, use the link on the right side of the clinic you want to participate in. Complete the Intake & Agreement Form the link leads you to. This is not a binding commitment yet, it will be reviewed first, and you can discuss options with the Clinic Coordinator.

Step Three: Look for confirmation from clinic@rolf.org within the next few days in addition to the automated email you received from the system
