Welcome to the Northwest Center for Structural Integration








Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about Structural Integration training options at the NW Center. We are a small (but mighty) school located in Portland, Oregon. You might wonder what sets the NW Center apart from the larger SI schools across the USA. We keep our classes small so that we can create an atmosphere of community and mentorship.




Are you ready to learn the art of Structural Integration and the Ten Session Series? There is one more spot available for the Practitioner Intensive training that begins in September, 2018. Join us for this transformative experience!








Are you looking for a highly interactive training program in Structural Integration? Want to a multidimensional training option? We are currently enrolling for the Practitioner Intensive class that begins in September of 2019! One weekend a month for ten months.

Training Notes for the Practitioner Intensive Class






Learning Structural Integration can be like learning a new language. Language acquisition can be exciting as well as overwhelming at times so we have created a forum for capturing training notes for our students. If you are considering structural integration training, check out our training/ clinic notes that are specific to how the NW Center conceptualizes the ten session series and the process of change.
