Course taught by the expert professor of the Rolfing Institute, Pedro Prado (Brazil).
The Rolfing Movement® aims to identify movement patterns that cause tension and imbalance in the body. Once identified, it is not necessarily intended to change these patterns, which have been very useful for the person, but rather offer solutions that are less burdensome and achieve greater balance and efficiency in the gravitational field, along with greater strength and better fluency.
The classic “Rolfing Movement” sessions address breathing patterns, walking, the use of the arms, the senses and their importance in the position and use of the head, and how to help the whole body have a more graceful movement and harmonic Respiratory patterns are explored to achieve breathing that facilitates and releases the structures involved in this function: rib cage, lungs and diaphragm. The following sessions are aimed at movement patterns in walking: foot, ankle, knee and hip joints, as well as arms, head and neck.
In these sessions, deeper support / support patterns are addressed to achieve a higher level of order in relation to gravity.
Rolfing Movement® can also serve as a tool to achieve higher levels of self-awareness, balance, freedom of movement and consistency in the body.
The Rolfing Movement also addresses the perception and meaning of posture and body patterns.
