NEW SOMATIC INQUIRIES
An Indicator of Structural Integration
with Caryn McHose and Kevin Frank
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 FROM 9-11AM
Workshop fee: $25.
20 spaces available. Pre-registration required.
Crew House, Smith College
A Rolf Movement® workshop based on conscious attention to gravity orientation, and perceptual approaches to shifts in pre-movement. Changes in pre-movement evoke motor patterns wherein the body elongates as it meets demand--psychological or physical. Integration of this kind leads to an inherent quality of well-being and flow in movement.
CARYN MCHOSE is a Certified Advanced Rolfer™ and Rolf Movement® Practitioner, as well as a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner and Certified Biodynamic Cranial Practitioner. She is the collaborator for Bodystories, A Guide to Experiential Anatomy, and The Place of Dance, by Andrea Olsen and is the co-author (with Kevin Frank) of How Life Moves, Explorations in Meaning and Body Awareness. Caryn has taught perceptual approaches to movement education for over 45 years.
KEVIN FRANK is a Certified Advanced Rolfer™, Rolf Movement® Practitioner and Rolf Movement® Instructor for the Rolf Institute. He has worked with the Godard-derived Tonic Function Model since 1991 and has written on this topic from 1995 to the present. Kevin advocates for an “information system” view of structural integration to help bring this field of SI into congruence with modern understanding of motor control and perceptive/coordinative processes.
