Why become Rolf Movement® Certified?

Rolf Movement Certification Training is a distinct and complementary program to the Basic and Advanced Rolfing® Structural Integration programs.

Expanding movement education reflects the increased role that an understanding of gravity orientation, perception, coordination, expressivity, and nervous system regulation plays in determining lasting shifts in posture and function. Further, teaching Rolfers® to understand, embody, and articulate these perspectives serves the greater DIRI mission to educate the world about Rolfing Structural Integration. Rolf Movement Integration is still a young field but one that distinguishes Rolfing from other brands of structural integration. Rolf Movement Integration links ongoing discoveries in the study of neuroscience and motor patterns to the legacy of Dr. Rolf.

About the Instructor

Juan David Vélez has been practicing as a Rolfer® and Rolf Movement® Practitioner since 1995, first in his native Colombia, and for the last ten years in Portland, Oregon. Juan David is guided by the belief that mastery is the place where logic, knowledge, and intuition converge. As a practitioner, he combines a rigorous scientific understanding of the discipline with an open-minded, intuitive approach.

As a teacher, Juan David builds a strong framework of the science, theory, and philosophy of Rolfing® Structural Integration, and encourages students to investigate and master these concepts through play and personal exploration. Juan David has a particular interest in neuroplasticity, the seemingly limitless ability of the brain to change the body and to respond to the body by changing itself.

In his spare time, Juan David enjoys painting and ecstatic dance, a good cup of tea, and a serious game of chess.
