In this seminar we will explore the territory of the Upper Thoracic Aperture and the significance of this area to both structural and functional patterns in the rest of the body. While the focus will be narrowed to this territory for practical reasons, exploration and discussions will be global, in alignment with the kind of thinking and strategizing required for advanced work.
You can expect to gain a more clear understanding of the anatomy and how it can inform our interventions. Our exploration however, will go beyond the standard bio-mechanical paradigm, and we will venture into current scientific understanding of body perception, the role of cortical maps, pain science and other ideas that are enriching our understanding of how is it that our work works.
Guest speaker Juan David Vélez is a Faculty member for The Rolf Institute® and has been teaching in all phases of the basic training for twenty years. His passion lies in the philosophical framework of the work and as a teacher, his goal is for others to understand the material with a depth and clarity that allows the material to be a launching pad for their own creativity.
