Instructor Bio(s): Valerie Berg trained in 1987 with Peter Melchior and Nicholas French. She is a big proponent of teaching the classical Ten-Series to beginning students, as this is where a lot of our thinking and development occurs that takes us deeper into the work. The nuances and advanced work come later developing out of knowing the territory of the ten series work. She worked in Guatemala for five years in the '90s and was exposed to the trauma of war and violence thus began studying Peter Levine’s trauma work. Valerie developed a workshop called Structural Aging which came from feeling the results the first time she was Rolfed® at 25 years old. The joy of moving our bodies with freedom and no pain is what gives us the sense of being alive and young, not our age. Over the years she has focused on all the patterns that break us down to make us feel or look old.She has been teaching for 20 years and received her bachelor’s degree in Education and Modern dance. She is also a Rolf Movement Practitioner trained by Hubert Godard.She has been practicing full-time in Albuquerque, NM for 32 years and now travels to San Diego and has a part-time practice there.
