Rolfing is een methode van structureel lichaamswerk die ontwikkeld is door Ida Rolf.

Zij werd rond 1900 geboren in Duitsland en werkte in Amerika. Zij onderzocht onder meer welk effect de structuur heeft op de functies van het lichaam. In Rolfing worden technieken toegepast om het lichaam in een natuurlijk evenwicht te brengen. De belangrijkste segmenten, hoofd, schouders, borst, bekken en benen worden in één lijn gebracht om zo efficiënt mogelijk weerstand te bieden aan de zwaartekracht van de aarde.

A two-day Masterclass exploring our relationship with gravity and its importance to our sense of support and orientation.

Learning to better sense our support and opening to our perception/orientation brings more presence and a more secure place from which to move. From our history our tendency is to seek safety in a familiar fixed body image by using our superficial muscles to maintain body shape and attitude. This reduces our sense of ground (support) and the space around us (kinesphere) and inhibits our ability to move easily between our inner and outer worlds; to give & receive.

Presence and orientation bring an optimal tonus in the body; core support becomes available together with open flow and receptivity from our senses; a place in which new options of attitude and behaviour become possible.

During the Masterclass exercises to explore perception and movement will be used in combination with touch and table work. As we refine and understand our own sense of support & orientation so we are better able to facilitate the same in our clients.

The practice will be focussed on the following:

  • Exploring our support and relationship with the ground
  • Experiencing the dual function of our senses i.e. to touch or feel touched, or to search with the eyes for an image, or to let the eyes receive the image
  • Finding a dynamic balance between interoception and exteroception (in and out)

Deze Masterclass is toegankelijk voor Rebalancers en andere lichaamsgerichte therapeuten.
