This course introduces the theoretical and practical framework of structural bodywork. Course material is inspired by the teachings of Ida P. Rolf’s Structural Integration (aka ‘Rolfing). Open to all levels of experience – body workers, therapists, teachers of yoga and movement. Hands-on practice throughout the week will be supported by individualized guidance.
Structural Integration (aka ‘Rolfing’) is a holistic and scientifically proven technique that is based on deep tissue manipulation and movement education. By contacting and adjusting the system of fascial (connective tissue), tension is released in the tissue and the body is re-balanced and realigned with the earth’s gravitational field. The result can be more energy, increased breathing capacity, elimination of chronic pain, and a restored sense of well-being.
