The Bones Begin to Breathe

Instructors: David Davis

Organizational Host: Guild for Structural Integration

Credits:  42 IASI Category 1 

Course Description:

In this workshop David Davis delves into our bodily experience, so we can take our clients to a deeper experience and expression of life and living. With recent revelations that fascia is a fractal tensional structure, it is not a giant step to think of the body as a hologram with all the body's connective tissues being a continuum. The patterns we work are reflected everywhere. In sessions six and seven we talk about the breathing pelvis and cranium. It’s time to move breath into the spine, arms, and legs connecting the continuum and parts to breath and breathing. In the resilient body, everything is responsive to the primary respiratory movement of breath. By unwinding holographic strain and holding through the fascial continuum we will be hydrating, irrigating and making space for knots to unravel that bind the flesh into chronic patterns. We will be breathing life and conscious awareness into unconscious patterns to open space for the expression of a living line as the entire body breathes and moves more harmoniously with itself and gravity. "Dr. Rolf said this work is for the conscious evolution of practitioners so we might as well forge ahead with the inner work."

This is a class for practitioners of all levels.

Instructor Bio: 

David Davis was born in Denver, Colorado in 1947. He was introduced to Structural Integration in 1964 by a series of articles about Dr. Ida P. Rolf and her Work. His initial Ten-Series in 1973 was profoundly transformational and inspired him to become a practitioner. David graduated from Adams State College in 1975 with a BA, a prerequisite for the Rolf Institute’s application process. David completed the Basic Training in 1976-77, studying with Emmett Hutchins, Michael Salveson, and Neal Powers. He met Dr. Rolf at her eightieth birthday gala, and was encouraged by her to carry on the Work. David studied with Judith Aston for two years, completing a series of six-day intensives. He received his Advanced Training in 1985 with Emmett, who encouraged him to teach. David was a founding member of the Guild for Structural Integration in 1989, and taught Anatomy and Basic and Advanced Trainings with Emmett, Peter Melchior, Stacey Mills, Neal Powers, and Nilce Silveira. David was a partner and protégé of Peter for 12 years, learning how to practice and teach the intricacies of SI. For over 24 years, David has taught three-day and six-day SI workshops internationally. He specializes in teaching embryology, fascial anatomy and working with scoliosis, infusing his classes with wisdom, compassion, and humor. David has been an innovator in SI education, teaching a Basic Training class to medical doctors and physical therapists at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in New Jersey in 1993, the only SI training to be taught at a major hospital. He has taught with SI research scientists Dr. James Oschman and Dr. Robert Schleip, integrating the practice of SI with the latest scientific research and information. David has been in private practice since 1977, completing over 40,000 sessions. Structural Integration is his discipline, practice, and service to humanity, as he continues learning with every session. David has meditated for over forty years, is an avid golfer and runner, and has served on numerous non-profit Boards. He met his wife Lorain in 1977. In 1979, they went to India to be with Haidakhan Baba and have been honored to study with leading Tibetan Buddhist masters and Native American teachers. David and Lorrain moved to Crestone in 1983, where they lived for 30 years and recently moved to Denver, where David continues his practice.
