Structural Integration Training in San Francisco

A full basic training in the art Structural Integration, as taught by Dr Ida P Rolf, will be offered in San Francisco in 2018. The training will begin in January, and finish in August. 

The class will take place in 2 four-day weekends each month, for 7 months, with a 4 day weekend follow up several months after the main part of the training.

Students will graduate ready to do basic 10 series Structural Integration sessions with clients, as well as post 10 work, beyond the 10 series.

The course will be limited to 10 students, with 2 instructors. Students will receive individual instruction, and opportunities to ask questions. Students will observe many sessions from both instructors, as well as from experienced practitioners who will come into the class do demos. This way, students will have the chance to see sessions done by different practitioners, with different styles, and different degrees of experience.

The students will perform the 10 session series with another student, and with 3 different models.

The course will include fascial anatomy, lectures, hands on learning, and ample discussion time. Other topics will be covered, such as finding the "Rolf line", body mechanics and maintaining one's structure, movement education, the practitioner/client relationship, business practices and ethics, and starting and maintaining a practice.

Continuing education and mentorship will be available after the basic training.

The total class time will be 64 8 hour days (15 four-day sections), for a total of 420 class time hours.

Prerequisites include anatomy, physiology, and massage training, and receiving a basic 10 series. The 10 series should be completed two months or more before the class begins.

The course will take place at Zazen, 2219 Filbert St, in San Francisco.

The projected starting date is the first week of January, 2018. This may be adjusted.

Cost: $15,000 paid in full prior to training, $1000 deposit to hold place.

Monthly payment plans available. For licensed bodyworkers, work trade is possible for up to full value of tuition.
