Rolf Movement® Videos

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Here’s a video of Caryn McHose doing Hubert Godard’s “Flight of the Eagle” exercise– which looks like regular yoga, but takes on a lot more meaning when you receive some Rolf Movement® work.

John Barton in Dallas, TX has made quite a few videos demonstrating the Movement work, which he calls Rolfing® Functional Movement. Check out his Functional Breath video and his Rolfing® Spinal Six video.

Rolfing® Videos

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Found a bunch of interesting videos on YouTube regarding Ida Rolf’s Structural Integration.

Structural Integration Practitioner Ruthie Streiter of Conscious Body NYC explores the urban myth that Dr. Ida Rolf’s method is excruciatingly painful. She also talks about how any discomfort felt during Structural Integration sessions is simply a necessary part of the transformational process.

This Rolfing® demonstration featuring Advanced Certified Rolfer® Libby Eason was filmed at the Harvard Medical School during the Fascia Congress, which took place in Boston, MA. on October 4 & 5, 2007.

Here’s Dallas/Ft. Worth area Rolfer® John Barton describing the ten series session by session with a skeleton on his YouTube channel.

Personal Comfort & Care during an S.I. series

Things to consider while you are going through a series of Structural Integration:

* Wear underwear you are comfortable being seen in to your sessions.

* Get a bit more protein in your diet while going through the series.

* Drink lots of water after your sessions.

* Be prepared to feel like you are in transition.

* After an initial series of Structural Integration, it’s best to wait a number of months before receiving any more of this kind of work— try a movement class instead.
