The review of the first three sessions of the Basic ten series

Instructor: Neal Powers, Yasutaka Okada (Assistant)

Credits: 28 IASI Category 1

Course Description:

A basic premise of Dr Rolf’s work is that the human body over time acquires strain and compensations that limit movement and eventually lead to deeper restrictions. The first three sessions of the Rolf ten session series addresses easing the superficial fascial restrictions that inhibit body movement. It was Dr Rolf’s contention that if we first address these surface restrictions we can effectively begin to free the body from its limitations. What a practitioner learns over time is that there are various layers within the body and that by easing each layer one at a time the body becomes more upright. This workshop is designed to enhance the practitioners’ understanding of the first three sessions and to develop this ability to differentiate these layers and work with easing them one layer at a time.
