The second edition of the course in Structural Integration will start in September 2023. This second edition will also be in Italian, based in Turin and will be modular with 20 three-day meetings.
The European Guild for Structural Integration is guided in the teaching of Structural Integration by fidelity to the philosophy and vision of the human being that have been transmitted by Dr. Ida Rolf. The basic series of 10 Structural Integration sessions, without additions or modifications deriving from other modalities, is the heart of our training. The 20 modules are divided into three phases:
Phase 1 - With six three-day weekends for a total of 152 hours in class
Skeletal and myofascial anatomy
Biomechanics and Structural Integration
Fascia physiology and biochemistry
Analysis and interpretation of human structure and movement in order to conceive coherent strategies for manipulative interventions that can improve the structure
How to behave in a therapeutic relationship
Exercises to adopt for self-care in order to become a competent IS operator
Anatomy and theory of the 10 Basic sessions
In this phase the participants will be able to see the 10 sessions practiced by the two teachers. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore the anatomical territories of each session and begin to develop the vision and touch skills typical of this approach.
Phase 2 - Six more modules for a total of 152 hours in class
Practice of the 10 Basic sessions during which the student operators exchange work with each other
The participants in this phase, in addition to seeing the 10 sessions again, will begin to practice them one on the other with the supervision and guidance of the teachers.
Phase 3 - Eight more modules for a total of 202 hours in class
In this phase, under supervision, each participant will practice the 10 Basic sessions on 2 external models.
This more eminently practical phase also contains experiential portions to introduce, among other things, the concepts related to the work that can be done after the first 10 sessions
I study at home
In addition to the above, participants should consider at least 500 hours of home study and practice.
The course will be taught by With the aim of enriching the participants' vision as much as possible and giving as much connection as possible to Dr. Rolf's original teaching, some modules may be conducted by bearers of Ida Rolf's lineage and there will be opportunities to have Aleš Urbanczik , the director of the European Guild for SI and Adam Polański.
