Course description: The Sunday Session classes are designed to be either taken in developmental sequence, or as stand alone for practitioners who have special interest in the content of the single unit. The class is primarily hands on, and with enough anatomy and general theory to make informed decisions about intervention.

While this course offering flies under the banner of “Sunday Sessions” and follows a cycle of five classes, the material is not a repeat of the earlier classes, but continues the investigation into the nature of structure, and how to work with the common themes that our clients bring to the practice.

This series will constitute a cycle of investigations into structure. The emphasis here is to build confidence in pattern recognition in body reading, and how to develop strategies of intervention based on observation. We will go into the anatomy of the region, the patterns of strain that are common to the region, and some tactical approaches to assure integration into the whole body, and the body with gravity. Each intervention will reference its technology to elements of the 10 session Recipe, so that the student can integrate the new information into a familiar baseline.

Each one-day class will present a discrete block of information that can be taken straight to the daily practice, and the whole cycle of five classes will constitute a round of investigation to deepen understanding of the Art of Rolfing. Each class will have a brief review of the previous class material for continuity, and will then build on that information.

The fee for each class will be $225, or $1000 (paid in advance) for the series of 5 classes. A deposit of $100 will be required to hold a space. The classes are designed to be a sequence, but they are also stand-alone in that a practitioner can take any combination of the courses. As these classes offer RISI Manipulation Credit, the series will fulfill the requirement for one of the Manipulation CE classes required for advanced training.
