In honor of Dr. Rolf’s birthday on May 19th, our Structural Integration reunion came about.

Our Memorial for Dr. Rolf was beautiful. It was a perfect summer day, sunny and warm. Woodlawn Cemetery, where we gathered at Ida Rolf’s gravesite, was lush with blooming trees and new growth.

Our Tribute to Dr. Rolf in Bronx, NY was attended by over twenty SI’ers, as well as friends and family. Patrick Clough and his wife joined us, as did Robert Toporek from Philadelphia, William Kaye, Karen Crowe,  two SI’er babies, two dogs, and many more, including a random Brazilian woman (Priscilla Soto from DC’s air b&b host).
