Rolf Movement® Training 2020-2021
Since 2018 the European Rolfing® Association offers the Rolf Movement Trainings in a modular format. Each Training Round will take place over three Parts; and each Part will have two or three Modules.
The aim of teaching in smaller modular units is twofold. Firstly to give Rolfers™ attending the training the opportunity to bring the elements experienced in class to their practices, and then to come back to class with further questions and insights from what has been applied. All Parts will be taught by an instructor/assistant pair from the European Rolf Movement Faculty.
Please see schedule below:
Part I (11 days)
FUNCTIONAL EMBODIMENT OF THE 10 ROLFING® SESSIONS
In this part of the training we will deepen the understanding of the functional aspects of the 10 Rolfing sessions. The embodied explorations will be a platform for the Rolfer™ to deepen their understanding of the Rolfing process and to be able therefore to offer more resonant movement explorations for their clients through the sessions.
Part II (10 days)
STRATEGY AND DESIGN OF A ROLF MOVEMENT 3-SERIES
In this second part we will focus on learning how to strategize and build a series of 3 Rolf Movement Sessions, not necessarily linked to the classical Rolfing Process; this will support Rolfers in creating a richer tool-set for meeting the varied needs of clients. Ultimately the intention is to support the client's development of their body awareness and their ability to creatively sustain the benefits they gained from their 10 series Rolfing process. That said this series of three Rolf Movement Sessions could equally be used with clients who have not undergone the classical Rolfing Process itself and may be looking for an introduction to it.
Part III (9 days)
INTRODUCTION TO LEADING ROLF MOVEMENT GROUPS
In this last part, using Rolf Movement theory, principles and embodied explorations, we will explore further how to create sequences and sustain series of movement exploration classes to be used in a group setting. This part is intended to assist Rolfers in creating additional support for their clients on-going work on themselves. It will also provide a new vehicle with which to reach out to interested groups, through Rolfing Movement classes, as a potential way of meeting new clients and introducing them to the Rolfing Process.
Part III invites already certified Rolf Movement™ Practitioners to participate in the newly developing aspect of the Rolfing body of knowledge –“leading groups”.
