Body Diagnostics, Alignment, & Fascial Patterning
This is an introduction to the principles of Structural Integration (aka 'Rolfing'), and the 1st session of the Rolf 10-Series. This course is the pre-requisite for 'Structural Integration 10-Series'.
In this course, participants will study the principles underlying the Structural Integration 10-Series. This information will be used to better understand body alignment, and the underlying fascial (specialized connective tissue) patterning. This then becomes the base for learning and applying hands-on manipulation techniques to release tissue restriction and to introduce better alignment.
Students can expect to:
- Build observation / analytical skills
- Develop hands-on skill sets
- Explore fascial bodywork
- Learn a complete introductory sequence
Group interaction, hands-on application of concepts, and significant mentoring are key elements of this course.
The study of observation and alignment technique is considered to be 50% of this work and is directly applicable across movement and bodywork disciplines.
Successful completion of this course is a base for providing structural bodywork. Usage of 'Structural Integration' or 'Rolfing' to describe your work is allowed only after successful completion of the full training in Structural Integration.
