Course Description: This Continuing Education class is open to Certified Rolfers and practitioners of Structural Integration who have completed an IASI Recognized SI Program.​This class will serve as both review and introduction to the articular biomechanics of the Axial Complex. Touch, palpation, and perception of “normal” motion versus dysfunction in the spine will be emphasized. Students will augment their understanding of the functions of the myofascial and ligamentous bed, either supporting or limiting motion. Students will further their skill in body reading —how local and global restrictions affect the whole structure, collaborate on designing and integrating client-centered Rolfing sessions, and demonstrate skill in assessing their interventions.Upon completion of the class, students will reliably identify and intervene with restrictions found in the axial complex. Students will identify the restriction or restrictions and apply the appropriate touch and technique to ease or change these restrictions. **A minimum of 16 participants is required, or the food cost may increase to offset the difference.

Instructor Bio(s): Russell Stolzoff has always been attuned to the beauty of integrated movement. He was first introduced to Rolfing® Structural Integration in 1983 as a classroom client while completing his BA at the University of Colorado. The deep physical and psychological impact of that experience led him to pursue training as a Rolfer®. He became a Certified Rolfer in 1989, and a Certified Advanced Rolfer in 1998. He completed his Rolf Movement® Certification in 2000 and became a Rolf Institute instructor in 2002.Russell has also completed extended studies in Somatic Experiencing and Biodynamic Analysis, a Danish method of body psychotherapy. Since 2010 Russell has worked extensively with professional athletes. He lives and practices in Bellingham, Washington.
