The Advanced Rolfing Training is the final step in the completion of the Rolfing Education; it gives you the opportunity to consolidate your foundations and deepen the knowledge and skills you have acquired during your Rolfing practices.
It is considered an advanced course because it aims to advance your progress through acquiring new complex and refined techniques to use with your clients. Advancing you, as a Rolfer, means that the next basic sessions you’ll offer will benefit from a new vision and approach. On completion of your advanced training, you will also be able to offer Advanced Rolfing sessions.

When Ida Rolf was teaching, she warned her students that after basic training, it would take them about 5 years’ diligent practice to truly understand the work. More than a reflection of her provocative style, her admonition underscores the reality that professional practice not only brings mastery of a craft, but also deepens our comprehension of the work’s essence. Through practice, the work not only teaches us, but also reveals itself.
The Advanced Training is one more step in the Rolfer’s professional development. It allows participants to deepen their understanding by integrating with their current knowledge and experience a more nuanced approach, one of great precision within a non-formulistic vision.
The work has evolved tremendously, and our science has developed assessments in all taxonomies… structural, functional, psychobiological…their understanding and integration represent a truly holistic process based approach to human transformation.
This Advanced Training has a dual focus:
1. To deepen participants’ basic knowledge of Rolfing SI through:
a) differentiation and integration of the structural, functional and psychobiological aspects of the work.
b) practice of highly developed non-formalistic but principle-based strategies that serve the clients' processes by addressing all taxonomies.
2. To present an integrated approach to the clients’ processes in structural, functional and psychobiological dimensions. A person moves through the joints; but a joint functions within a living person.
