This Continuing Education class is open to practitioners of Structural Integration who have graduated from an approved IASI school.
We will learn the fascial connections from the spine to the fingers, the fine tuning of the exquisite elbow joint and the proprioceptive links form humerus to the hand.
Our arms and hands are the conduit through which we engage our world especially as Rolfers but also in influencing our relationships through touch, speaking and all the functioning of our senses that are expressed.
Valerie Berg has been a Certified Rolfer since 1988, Advanced Rolfer since 2000 and a member of the DIRI faculty since 2003. She is also a Movement Practitioner and influenced by her history as a Modern Dancer, Hubert Godard and Yoga. She worked in Guatemala for 5 years in the 90s and was exposed to the trauma of war and violence thus began studying Peter Levine’s trauma work. This brought her interest in cultural and world view influences and differences on our structure and function. She continues to study Visceral and Neural work as a component of her practice.
She has been practicing in New Mexico for 26 years. Tango dancing, yoga, hiking, sculling and kayaking keep her moving and interested in the vitality of our bodies continuing through the changes of the years. Her focus over the last 5 years has been on what she calls “Structural Aging”. The joy of movement for the human body is what brought her to be a Rolfer and now continues to be what can be brought to anyone of any age through Structural Integration.
