Rolfing® Movement Integration
Rolfing® Movement Integration is a Movement educational component additional to the hands-on bodywork that a structural Rolfing session is providing. It is a dynamic activity of keeping our balance in the field of gravity, by establishing new understanding and a growing level of awareness in experiencing the body, it’s habitual patterns and surroundings. Habitual repetitive patterns of movement lead to chronic tension, pains and stress in the system and can also lead to habit in perception.
In Rolfing Movement we put our minds in examining activities from daily life and work, as well as more elaborated movements from different movement practices as Yoga, Dance, Martial Arts, Climbing, Sports and the like. Working with breathing, verticality, standing, sitting and walking guided by language and often touch to re-establish and promote a more efficient, economic and balanced movement before it even occurs. To change the way we move is to change the way we feed the system and the sensory information that creates the habit. We learn to look at Gravity through our senses and re-shape the way we perceive the world.
Rolfing Movement elements are usually integrated in individual Structural Rolfing sessions.
These sessions can be taken as an additional session or better, as most commonly done as a number of sessions inlaid between one’s Rolfing Structural Integration sessions to enhance proprioception and mobility, and to realize movement strategies within oneself. Every Movement session is tailored to one’s personal practice, adjusted to their Rolfing Structural Integration position and personal needs.
Rolfing Movement Education sessions can be taken individually or in a group setting, indoors or outside in the Park, wherever the resonance between in-sphare and the world around can awaken new possibilities for oneself, the avid observer.
