Nir is studying Movement since 1996. He came to Rolfing® after practicing Buddhist meditation and Ashtanga Yoga as well as teaching before he was inspired by the work of Dr. Ida Rolf and the research of connective tissue and Fascia, as embedded in Movement. He was trained in Boulder, Colorado at the ‘Dr. Ida Rolf Institute’ DIRI (formerly known as the ‘Rolf Institute of Structural Integration’ RISI) and in Munich, Germany at the ‘European Rolfing Association’ ERA.
Nir approaches Rolfing and Movement education with a background in Philosophy and Art, an eye for detail, with a motivation to promote contemplative quality in others, so they can grow an appreciation for the learning process and explore new pathways of mindfulness and movement in practice.
As a practicing Certified Advanced Rolfer™ and Rolf Movement Practitioner™, and a long-term Yoga aspirant Nir integrates modalities to support the exploration of one’s center of Gravity with hands-on bodywork and further movement education.
“When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through.
Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself.
There is an ongoing psychological change as well toward balance, toward serenity, toward a more whole person. The whole person evinces a more apparent, more potent psychic development.”
Dr. Ida P. Rolf
What is Rolfing?
Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI) is a transformative and highly effective system of body restructuring and movement education. It releases connective tissue (Fascia) in the body segments and restores greater freedom and ease that are created from repetitive movement, injuries, restrictions and accumulated tension. Rolfing realigns and promotes balance in the whole individual expression in relation to the field of Gravity by re-educating and establishing a better support and adaptability of the systems and segments that are working within the body.
