Description: This course offers explicit consideration of how the goals and steps of structural integration translate into improved body stability and capacity for self-care. Ida Rolf believed that there is such a thing as normal body behavior; human bodies have an inherent capacity to respond efficiently and effectively to physical and psychological challenges. We can find stability and express lengthening at the same time. The workshop will be a combination of therapeutic techniques and experiential exercises supported by lecture and discussion.

Lectures and Discussions will cover topics such as:
• What does normal stability look and feel like?
• How do anatomical structures contribute to stabilization?
• Where does stabilization fit into an SI series?
• How do we include self-care into each session of a series?
• How do clients learn to discern and value non-effortful stability?

Experiential Exercises: Students will be guided through exercises for deepening their own body awareness.
Therapeutic Techniques: Students will be provided with relevant techniques to be practiced with clients between class sessions.

Detailed, step-by-step instructions and video demonstrations will also be made available.

Assigned Readings and Videos: Video and reading materials will be assigned to deepen students' theoretical understanding of the subject matter presented.
