Before Rolfing

Rita’s background includes studies in the field of Physical Education and of the Mézières Method. She was certified as a Feldenkrais Practitioner in 1992 and has been a Pilates Instructor since1998. Rita’s main curiosity is in finding different approaches and different languages to be able to marry these with individual client’s needs and resources in order to achieve a full development of their potentiality and integration.

Inspiration to train in Rolfing®

“It was the approach and vision that inspired me to train in Rolfing. I was already doing bodywork, with good results, and my practice was successful. But I was reading a lot of literature connected to Rolfing and in 1984 I had my first Rolfing session with an American practitioner. We met again within the year, and I offered her a Mézières session. It was from this that she really encouraged me to go to the pre-training and then apply for the admission – and I haven’t looked back since!”.

Teaching Method

I really try to tailor my training to the class I am teaching. I modulate what I offer to the students in relation to the content, the general level of the class – background and interest – and also the group dynamic. For me it is crucial to meet the students to get in tune and find the appropriate flow for the learning process.

My main aim really is to build self-confidence, empower the students, and try to elicit curiosity. It is important to me to deliver theory through, and blended with, practical experience, rather than through a unidirectional lecture.
