This course offers one of the missing pieces in Rolf’s recipe: explicit consideration of how the goals and steps in doing structural integration translate into improved body stability and capacity for self-care.
We address stability from Rolf’s view: there is such a thing as normal body behaviour; human bodies have inherent capacity to respond efficiently and effectively to physical and psychological challenge. Normal means we express stability and lengthening at the same time.
Each day is a combination of theory, demonstration, partnered exploration: and also integrative movement to allow what one learns to anchor and integrate more fully.
The work is founded on the Tonic Function model which posits that structural integration is based on five types of structure: physical structure, coordinative structure, perceptive structure, meaning structure, and expressive structure. We learn to see how each type of structure may, at any given moment, be a “pin” that fixates capacity and limits adaptability.
