Presentations:

Transforming Pattern: 
Shifting from Unaware Habit to Conscious Choice

(Heather Starsong and Gael Rosewood)

Behind Dr. Rolf’s practical vision of balance, awareness, and resilience for our physical bodies, was a larger vision for humanity, and an inquiry: could shifting obstructive patterns in our bodies allow us to move away from habits of warring, territoriality, and greed to become more heart-centered beings?

In this workshop we will explore, for ourselves and our clients, ways to uncover habitual patterns, in all their layers, that keep us from embodying this larger vision, and ways to use the tools of Rolf Movement to shift those patterns.
 

Embodiment Applied:
Using Movement Principles to Supercharge Structural Work

(Bethany Ward)

In daily practice, we tend to view movement work in terms of client education. We know that working with perception and coordination helps our structural interventions go more easily, work more deeply, and improve the odds that changes will last. But how is your own embodiment during sessions? Are you successfully applying movement concepts in your own structure while working with clients?

In this practical presentation, we flip the functional focus back on ourselves and discuss specific ways we practitioners can work with our own experience to supercharge the work. We’ll take a practical look at common movement concepts and explore ways to apply them to improve our spectrum and quality of touch; our presence and the unspoken message it speaks to the client; and our own self-care.

 


Workshop with Peter Schwind, Ph.D.

Sunday, September 2 – Tuesday, September 4 (Tuesday overnight stay available)

Inner Spaces of the System of Fascia and Membranes

Daily schedule as follows:

  • Breakfast 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

  • Meeting 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

  • Dinner 6:00 p.m.

In this workshop, we will study how to combine our traditional body-reading with new ways of manual diagnostics. This shall help us to understand how the inner junctions of the cavities inside the trunk are rooted in three-dimensional relationships of fascia and membranes. Special emphasis will be given to the way spinal curvatures meet each other and how the subdivisions of the inner spaces of thorax, abdomen and pelvis are related.

The first practical part will focus on new techniques applied to the psoas. We will explore how the psoas can be activated by a manual approach that distinguishes clearly between restrictions of Psoas major, Psoas minor, renal fascia, motion capacity of the kidneys, and the density of the supportive fat inside the retroperitoneal space. We will include some functional movement work for this area, including training for the M.transversus abdominis.

The second practical part deals with the interaction of the retrosternal structures inside the thorax and the structures inferior to the diaphragm. We will learn how we can treat the patterns of breathing related to the myofascial container and the contents, including the organs.

The third practical part will guide us to a new understanding of the traditional 7th hour of Ida Rolf. We will discuss and explore the inner relationship between neurocranium and viscerocranium and explore a modality of doing intraoral and intranasal work in a non-dramatic way. We will put special emphasis on the manual evaluation of the inner bridges at the level of the two maxillae and their very special light weight construction. This shall lead us to a clear strategy to handle simple and complex TMJ problems.

The learning objectives of this workshop are:

  • a better understanding of a combined way of body-reading and manual diagnostics

  • a detailed structural and functional approach to the psoas and a combined structural and functional approach to the psoas and its neighbors

  • a practical understanding of the spacious relationships inside the cranium and their interaction with the ventral part of the neck and with the cavities inside the trunk
