Rosen Method Foundations. . .Traditional
A Movement Intensive, Fall 2019
Method Movement initially grew from Marion Rosen’s insight of the full
potential for movement from the physical body. The movements are based
on her experience of how the body functions from her physical therapy
practice and they are the foundation of the Rosen Method Bodywork. So
the basis of Rosen Method is that experiences and emotions can lead to
chronic physical habit patterns or "holding," triggered by muscle
tension and contraction.
set to music incorporating a range of unhurried movements designed to
improve alignment and flexibility, increase your range of motion, ease
your breathing, and with minimal effort deepen your sense of being.
Join us and remember what it was like to move effortlessly through the
air as a child.
Learn to put what
you see to daily use with Rosen Method Movement training from Jane
Malek, who Marion named as the "one to carry on the movements as
authentically as she intended for them to be taught". Each day of the
movement intensive begins with a movement class. It is important for
students to attend complete one hour classes in order to integrate the
movements. Everyone has many opportunities to explore their limitations
as well as experience greater freedom as they move.
Usually, after a
short break there is time for sharing, to hear what has happened to
people during the movement class. The teaching unfolds from following
people's experience of how the movements effect them. It may be a
simple experience, such as feeling more upright, instead of slouching
the shoulders forward. One women said her upper body always felt so
heavy, as if she was collapsing in the middle. When she became aware of
this and felt upright and open in her chest, then she could show
herself more. Her face was beaming as she felt what a difference it
made. She experienced both the limitation and the opening, so now it
was a clear choice for her towards functioning more fully.
People come to the
intensives both for personal growth and for teacher certification.
Those who want to become teachers practice teaching a segment of a
class. Everyone learns from experiencing the theoretical underpinnings
of these apparently simple movements and the components of teaching a
class are introduced.
This course gives a general overview of the principles of
Rosen Method Movement. It is open to Rosen Method teachers, interns,
dancers and other movement teachers. It is beneficial to anyone who
wants to learn more about their own body. It is also for fitness
instructors, dance teachers and people who wish to become a certified
Rosen Method movement teacher.
