ROLF MOVEMENT WORKSHOP: SEEING & COMMUNICATING WITH CLIENTS with Jane Harrington & Patrice Naparstek

  • Date: Friday, September 30th – Sunday, October 2nd, 2016
  • Time: TBA
  • Cost: $555
  • PRE-REGISTER by emailing cberkley@rolf.org

This workshop is open to Rolfers & all graduates of IASI certified schools.

When we work with our clients it is our goal to educate their awareness in a way that allows them to integrate and take the work into their daily activities and their lives. Each client has functional preferences where movement habits and patterns are woven into their behavior for better or worse. Shifting awareness may be as simple as noting their perception of gait or helping them clarify and refine their intentional movement.

Success requires the practitioner and client to sense/know what is occurring as they move through space. We will teach clear ways to see, recognize and communicate movement to your clients with tools to help heighten their awareness, sense of embodied self and functional ease.

Our 3 days together will include extensive seeing of patterns through the lens of structural lesions and habitual movements. We will take our knowledge into personal exploration and embodiment. You will trade work with each other to anchor the new tools.

Jane Harrington, MA, is the most senior member of the Rolf Movement faculty, certified in Rolf Movement Integration in 1980. She joined the Rolf Institute faculty in 1988, teaching Phases II and III and Rolf Movement certifications. Jane’s passion is linking the movement work to Ida Rolf’s vision of our work.

Patrice Naparstek, MFA, CMA is a recent addition to the RISI Movement Faculty. She has taught somatics and movement and movement arts for 25 years in the university and her community and has been an Advanced Rolfer since 1999. In her mind function and structure are two sides of the same coin.

I’ve traveled across the country competing in ballet, tap and jazz, and have performed in cities overseas. I’ve been a certified fitness-instructor for six years and have been teaching Zumba for more than four. The wonderful people, whom I’ve had the privilege of teaching, have made this such a rich and educational journey. I thank them wholeheartedly, and I encourage others to join who may feel reluctant to take that first leap. I believe in a kind and supportive space where everyone, experienced or not, is welcome!

Salutations to The Moon: Chandra Sadhana

6:30 – 8:30 pm | $65

Salutations to the Moon is not just a physical sequence that we may perform. It is practiced in the recognition that rest is as important as movement, sleep is as important as being awake, pause is as important as action. It is in acknowledging this balance and harmony that we pay our homage and invoke the Moon. 

Moon is mind and in order to witness the pure mind one must calm the ripples of thoughts and emotions so that the reflection of moon is crystal clear in the clam and still waters. Mind is Saumya, with moon like pleasantness.

Have the courage to look into the mirror and see what is unpleasant and work in making it Moon like pleasant. 

Study the history and origins of Moon Salutations and the sequence of the practice.

*If you’d like to attend this workshop only, register here.

Basics of Mudra Yoga

2:00 – 5:00 pm | $65 (or $120 for both Saturday workshops)

“Anyone, who can breathe can do Mudras.”

Mudra is the ancient Yogic art and science of gesturing and sealing vital pranic energies in the human body for health, well being and spiritual evolution. It also works as a therapy for the body and mind by balancing the ratio of five elements (panch tattvas) when done with hands.

Join this program to get introduced to the basics of Mudras.

The workshop is followed by book signing with Indu Arora: Mudra: The Sacred Secret

If you’d like to attend this workshop only, register here.

If you’d like to attend both workshops Saturday, the cost is $120. Register here.

Book Signing with Indu Arora

5:30 – 6:00 pm | Free

Mudra: The Sacred Secret was written keeping in mind the lack of literature on the subject for masses, Yoga teachers Ayurvedic practitioners and seekers alike. It is to open a completely new and unexplored platform of alternative modality of healing.

Indu’s vision is to spread the word on Mudras as a therapeutic tool, a tool for reconnecting with ourselves and a subject that needs to be understood more deeply in the present era.

This event is free and open to the public. 

Sunday, November 20th

Asana Insights

9:00 am – 5:00 pm | $120

Dive into Marma, Kosha, Nadi, Dosha, Chakra and Pranas.

Asana symbolizes the pose of the mind and not simply a pose by the body. It is the sacred seat that we create with the conscious exploration beyond the body. 

We often learn about the asanas from the physiology and anatomy glasses – muscles, tendons, joints – but never have we thought that none of the Yogic texts speak about asanas in the physical context.

The Yogic perceptive of the asana is the understanding of a pose as per the functioning at the five layers (pancha koshas), balance of the elements and doshas, nadis, energy flow, the invocation, expansion of energy and the distribution of energy. 

Join this full day workshop where we discuss three most important poses – in standing, seated, supine.

There will be a two-hour break for lunch.

Sunday is a full-day intensive, one must register for the full day. Register here.

Cost

Full weekend: early bird $250, regular $265
Full day: $120
One workshop: $65

*Sunday is full-day intensive, one has to register for the full day.

WINTER SOLSTICE MINI-RETREAT with Teresa Reid

  • Saturday, December 17th, 2016
  • Time: 3:00 – 9:00 pm
  • Cost: TBA
  • PRE-REGISTER

A mini-retreat with Dancing Freedom & Sitting Meditation

It can be restorative to sit quietly in the darkness and drink in the mystery of the Great Unknown. The same is true for silence and stillness and aloneness. Now and again we need to retreat to an inner sanctuary – to dream big empty thoughts in the tranquil depths. This is the time of year for that kind of rejuvenation – to contemplate and rest in the silence of the season – to connect with our inner light and wisdom.

In this Winter Solstice retreat we weave the power of conscious dance and sitting meditation to bring awareness to both our movement and our stillness – to settle our systems and quiet our minds – to listen with conscious intent – to ignite our inner flame.

Both men and women are welcome and encouraged to attend – all bodies, all abilities, all backgrounds.
Slow down & let go. Rest & reflect. Set your intentions. Join us!

3:00pm – 9:00pm (with a break for dinner – bring your own meal or find a restaurant in the area)
