Course Description: Rolf Movement Certification Training is a distinct and complementary program to the Rolfing® SI and Advanced Rolfing® Structural Integration programs.Expanding movement education reflects the increased role that an understanding of gravity orientation, perception, coordination, expressivity, and nervous system regulation plays in determining lasting shifts in posture and function. Further, teaching Rolfers® to understand, embody, and articulate these perspectives serves the greater DIRI mission to educate the world about Rolfing Structural Integration. Rolf Movement Integration is still a young field but one which distinguishes Rolfing from other brands of structural integration. Rolf Movement Integration links ongoing discoveries in the study of neuroscience and motor patterns to the legacy of Dr. Rolf.PrerequisitesRolf Movement Certification is open to all SI practitioners from IASI approved schools.
