Portland 2019-2020 Practitioner Intensive Training in Structural Integration!
**Registration has closed for this training. Please check back as we develop our training schedule for 2020! If you are interested in joining the 2020-2021 cohort, please contact us for an application. This class will be limited to 8 practitioners.
Our next Intensive Practitioner class begins in September 2019 and runs through June 2020. Based on student requests and the needs of those who can’t leave town (or work) for five weeks, we have taken the Intensive Practitioner training and formatted it to “a one-weekend, once a month, for 10 months format.” This class is primarily for licensed bodywork professionals or concurrently enrolled students within an accredited school program. We also have a training option within this class for professionals who wish to incorporate the foundational skills and knowledge of structural integration in their practice (such as yoga, pilates, dance, etc.). While all hours earned within this class are considered “Category One” level with the IASI and count towards sitting for their board certification exam, this is not a direct pathway to licensure with the state of Oregon or Washington. All hours (180) count as CEU’s in the states of Oregon and Washington for LMT’s. It is our goal that students complete the course with a strong foundation in structural integration and are ready to incorporate those skills into their current practice.
This training covers the ten-session series developed by Ida P Rolf, the founder of the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado. Participants spend two days (one weekend a month) on each of the ten sessions. Mornings include 3 hours of lecture and demonstration. After lunch and some restorative time, participants spend 4 hours in the afternoon working on guided practicum while giving and receiving the ten-session series.
This training is structured for a total of 180 hours of continuing education (CEU’s) however it is our experience that students receive far more hours of instruction based on class dynamics and momentum. To allow for ongoing supervision between classes, we offer a mid-month live supervision (via video conferencing for out of town students) and always offer a clinic supervision opportunity the Friday afternoon before the training weekend. To support and encourage our graduates, we offer ongoing access to ongoing Practitioner Intensive classes once a student completes the Practitioner Intensive for a nominal fee.
This course is an in-depth study of the ten-session series, the foundation of structural integration. Our students have a 1:4 instructor to student ratio during the training. Participants experience a high level of engagement from day one by giving and receiving the 10 sessions series with direct supervision. While other modalities and topics are infused into this training throughout the ten months, students dive deep into the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, fascial release, functional assessment and evaluation, and skill development.
The Intensive Practitioner Class takes place at our teaching space in inner Southeast Portland at 4160 SE Division St, Portland Oregon 97202. A spacious large studio space in the vibrant SE Richmond area allows for easy access to wonderful restaurants and coffee shops as well as city transportation.
