This Continuing Education class is open to practitioners of Structural Integration who have graduated from an approved IASI school.

As Rolfers™, we understand that the spiraling arrangement and synergistic action of fascia, muscles, and joints facilitate healthy spinal motion. During this class we will introduce and review the articular biomechanics and movement capacity of the Axial Complex. Through embodiment, touch, and perception of "normal" spinal motion versus dysfunctional patterns, students will increase their ability to facilitate appropriate interventions.

Having the knowledge and embodiment to skillfully address spinal patterns in order to restore and establish spinal fluency is essential to address the concerns of our clients and successfully meet the goals of Structural Integration.

Class content will include:

  • Functions of myofascia and ligamentous bed as either supporting or limiting motion
  • Body reading "how local and global restrictions affect the whole structure and movement capacity"
  • Designing integrative client-centered sessions
  • Skills for assessing interventions
  • Home program recommendations to further session interventions
  • Specific techniques for coordinative re-patterning so that joints & fascia function synergistically as conduits for motion
  • A vision of rotational and contralateral movement based on our inherent spiral design

About the Instructors

Sally Klemm - As a member of the Advanced Faculty of DIRI, Sally has taught certification courses in Rolfing® Structural Integration and cranial sacral work internationally. She is a graduate of UC Berkeley and holds a Master's Degree in Education. Sally's ability to blend an organized cognitive style with intuitive understanding reflects her fascination with the interface of psyche and soma and how that informs our direct experience. Her teaching style creates a relaxed atmosphere that supports a variety of learning styles. When she is not traveling internationally to teach, Sally maintains a private practice on Oahu and Kauai in Hawaii.

Rebecca Carli-Mills - A member of the Rolf Movement® Faculty of the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute (DIRI) in Boulder, CO. Rebecca became interested in somatic movement studies while pursuing B.A. and M.F.A. degrees in dance. She earned certification in Rolf Movement Integration in 1987, followed by Rolfing and Advanced Rolfing certifications. In 1994, Rebecca graduated from the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and joined the Rolf Movement faculty. Rebecca's understanding of gravity and movement potential has been enriched by her continuing studies with French movement expert, Hubert Godard, Ph.D. Additionally, she draws from training in craniosacral, energetic osteopathy, dance kinesiology and a variety of somatic movement modalities. Rebecca has a full-time practice in Chevy Chase, MD.
