Rolf Movement™ Certification Training 2025-26
A member of the Rolf Institute since 1986 and an International and European Rolfing…
Rita Geirola is a Certified Rolfer…
Since 2018 the Rolf Movement™ Trainings at the European Rolfing® Association have been offered in a modular format. Each round of training takes place over 3 parts: each part consisting of 2 or 3 Modules.
The aim of teaching in smaller modular units is twofold; firstly, to give you the opportunity to bring the elements experienced in class to your practice, and then to come back to class with further questions and insights from what has been applied. All parts will be taught by a combination of an instructor and co-instructor from the European Rolf Movement™ Faculty.

For all certified Rolfer® and SI practitioners from IASI-approved schools interested in the functional aspects of Rolfing®.Also all previous Rolf Movement™ Practitioner are welcome to participate in Part 3 - Introduction to leading Rolf Movement groups.
Part 1: FUNCTIONAL EMBODIMENT OF THE 10 ROLFING® SESSIONS
In this part of the training, you will deepen your understanding of the functional aspects of the Rolfing Ten Series. The embodied explorations will be a platform for you to deepen your understanding of the Rolfing process and to be able to therefore offer more resonant movement explorations for your clients in their sessions.
Part 2: STRATEGY AND DESIGN OF A ROLF MOVEMENT 3-SERIES
In this second part you will focus on learning how to strategize and build a series of 3 Rolf Movement Sessions. These sessions are not necessarily linked to the classical Rolfing process but will support you in creating a richer toolset for meeting the varied needs of your clients. Ultimately, the intention is to support your client’s development of their body awareness and their ability to creatively sustain the benefits of what they gained from their Rolfing Ten Series process. That said, this series of three Rolf Movement Sessions could equally be used with clients who have not undergone the classical Rolfing process and may be looking for an introduction to Rolfing.
Part 3: INTRODUCTION TO LEADING ROLF MOVEMENT GROUPS
In this third and final part, using Rolf Movement theory, principles and embodied explorations, you will further explore how to create sequences and how to sustain series of movement in exploration classes that you will be able to use in a group setting. This part is intended to assist you in creating additional support for your client’s on-going work on themselves. It will also provide you with a new approach to be able to reach out to interested groups. Through offering Rolfing Movement classes, you will be able to provide a new avenue to introduce potential clients to the Rolfing process.
Part 3 invites already certified Rolf Movement™ Practitioners to participate in the newly developed aspect of the Rolfing body of knowledge – ‘leading groups’.
