Certified Advanced Rolfer®, Certified Rolfer®, Mentor, Rolf Movement™ Practitioner
Giovanni Felicioni is a Certified Advanced Rolfer® and Rolf Movement™ practitioner of 17 years and a Yoga Teacher. He has been practising as a bodyworker in London and abroad for the past 25 years.
He teaches regularly for the International Rolfing® Faculty. He also teaches Yoga and Anatomy for the London based Yoga Teacher Training Course, accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga, and based on the pioneering work of Mary Stewart and Vanda Scaravelli.
He runs a Rolfing/Yoga practice in London and leads workshops and retreats world-wide. He has been actively part of a team that runs the British Academy of Rolfing® (BARSI).
Giovanni is inspired by the work of Hubert Godard and Peter Schwind and by the relationship of meditation practice to the “integration” themes we are passionate about in the embodiment of the Rolfing Process. He is professionally interested in investigating what happens when we explore the relationship between human verticality and the context it is in. This has something to do with how embodiment (verticality) and embeddedness-in-the-world (context) are part of a dynamic flowing loop, or circularity, which we sometimes call well-being or integration or ‘my life’.
The exploration and study of this ‘loop’ has been the daily work and play of bodyworkers, movement practitioners, dance artists and performers as well as meditators, cognitive scientists, gardeners, potters, people who love to go for walks, contemplative carrot choppers, hermits and bathers.
