Practitioner Intensive Training in Structural Integration, Durango CO.
**Registration has closed for this training. Please check back as we develop our training schedule for 2020!
The Practitioner Intensive is designed for practitioners who wish to add Structural Integration into their therapeutic “tool belt”. Often our students are practitioners who are wishing to expand the scope of their practice, are looking for a new or different perspective of health and wellness, and want to be able to deepen the scope of the impact with their clients.
This training is very interactive and requires active engagement with instruction as well as onsite and offsite practice. We offer a blend of lecture, demonstration, and extensive hands-on practice. Students will observe, receive and practice each of the ten different sessions (one session per weekend for ten months). In addition to giving and receiving their own ten-session series, students work with two class models each month.
Based on student requests and the needs of those who can’t leave home (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 for licensed individuals. This is not a direct pathway to licensure. We encourage all participants to contact the licensing board within their state of residence for more information on licensure. 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, we 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. 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.
