IASI Member Talks About Symposium

"Symposium is an opportunity to come out of the solitude of private practice in Structural Integration. I look forward to sharing work experiences from the last year with my colleagues and feeling the gratitude and pride of being part of a larger community of practitioners united in a common goal."

–Justin Farrell, Certified Rolfer, IASI Board Member

New IASI School—The Pacific School of Structural Integration

Yona, Guam

Patricia Pexa is the founder of the new Pacific School of Structural Integration (PSSI), one of the recently accredited institutions to join the IASI family. This month, Pexa took some time to speak with us from the site of PSSI in Yona, Guam and was kind enough to share some wisdom, well-earned over two decades as a practitioner of Structural Integration.

Pexa graduated from The Rolf Institute in 2001 after 30 years in academia. While her decision to enter the field may have been a quick one, her dedication to the work, its development, and its proliferation prove steadfast. Pexa was intentional about her education process and sought studies with Liz Gaggini, Sally Klemm, Lael Keen, Tessy Brungardt, and Pedro Prado in order to develop what would ultimately become a practice focused on a gentle, listening touch. When asked what distinguishes her work and the work done at PSSI, she draws on a phrase we as Structural Integrators can all be well served to use as a mantra: "What does the tissue tell you?"

With a 30 year background in academia, Pexa says she feels well-equipped to design a workflow adapted to her small but dedicated group of students. Currently, the program at PSSI is three years long and class scheduling is customizable to students needs. Eventually, Pexa hopes to reach out her teaching to other parts of Asia.
