This series of workshops will constitute a cycle of intervention into structure.  We will follow the Structural Taxonomies, in that each session will focus on a distinct taxon.  The emphasis here is to build confidence in pattern recognition in body reading, and how to develop strategies of intervention based on observation.  We will go into the anatomy of the region, the patterns of strain that are common to the region, and some tactical approaches for integration into the whole body.

The idea is that a each one day class will present a discrete block of information that can be taken straight to the daily practice of the work.  Each class will have a brief review of the previous class material, and will then build on that information.  While the series of classes are designed to be sequential, the practitioner can take one or any combination of the classes, and benefit accordingly.  

Enrollment will be limited to 12 students, to allow good supervision of practica.

Jan Sultan's initial encounter with Ida Rolf was in 1967 as her client. In 1969 he trained under her, and after having assisted several classes, was invited by Dr. Rolf to become an instructor in 1975. After further apprenticeship, Dr. Rolf invited him to take on the Advanced teaching.

Jan currently teaches Basic Rolfing Trainings, Continuing Education, and Advanced Trainings for the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration. He feels strongly that his responsibility as an instructor goes beyond simply passing on what he was taught, to include the refinement and coherent development of the ideas and methodology taught by Ida Rolf.
