Rosen Method Workshop

This one-day workshop will introduce you to the basics principles of Marion Rosen's understanding of the body. It will guide you through the process of hands-on learning to enable you to touch with depth and without using effort. It will show how the breath can be an indicator in the body of deep changes in states of mind. It is a reflection of emotional opening. Activities of the course include demonstrations of the bodywork, Rosen Method movement and hands-on exchanges between students. Sara Webb is the senior teacher for this course and has more than 30 years experience providing the opportunity for a new direction in life through Rosen Method. Elyze Stewart is her co-teacher. She has been in practice in San Francisco for many years and has taught anatomy and massage. She is in training now as a Rosen teacher.

Residential Retreat Bodywork Intensive in Occidental, CA

Rosen Method bodywork with teachers Sara Webb and Meg Butler. This Summer's Residential is a very very special event.  Marion liked to hold intensives as residential retreats for fostering more connection. An Intensive is a remarkable opportunity to learn Rosen Method bodywork and movement in a in-depth format over an seven-day period. Rosen Method develops our capacity for self-awareness through gentle direct touch, joyful movement, and dialog. We will explore the essence of Marion Rosen's method through demonstrations, shared discussion and supervised practice. The Intensive offers the possibility to learn in an environment of transformation and community. It is one component of a complete training program in Rosen Method bodywork. This course is open to both career-track students and those who are interested in personal growth. Sara Webb is one of the directors of the Rosen Berkeley Center and she was Marion Rosen's first student! She has practiced and taught Rosen Method all her professional life.
Meg Butler is a Rosen Method Bodywork practitioner in private practice in Santa Barbara, CA where she lives with her husband and two children.  Meg began seeing clients in her internship in Santa Barbara in 1998 and was certified in 2001. She has also co-taught Rosen Method intensives in northern California and Minnesota as part of her teacher training. 
An application process is required for first-time participants. Tuition is TBA, with a $50 late  fee for applications received after June 15. The course runs from Sunday to Sunday.* Rosen Method begins with the individual and his or her own growth, but it doesn't stop there. The individual's growth leads to action, and those actions cause a ripple effect in the world; the possibilities are unending  

-- Marion Rosen

*We'll have to relocate the intensive to a local, non-residential class in Berkeley if we don't get at least 8 confirmed students.

Holistic Anatomy

A four-day holistic anatomy course taught by two Rosen teachers who are also physical therapists with decades of experience working with the body. Jane Pittsinger and Kate O'Shea bring a deep understanding of anatomy from a Rosen perspective. Focusing on the areas of the body that are most important to Rosen Method and the mind-body connection, this workshop is experiential and more than just memorizing names and places of muscles and bones. A visit to a cadaver lab at the U.C. Berkeley campus is included in this course offering. This is an exciting opportunity, not to be missed!

Rosen Method Movement Intensive

How we move matters. Come move and be moved!
The essence of Rosen Method is to encourage freedom of movement by gently and playfully getting us to move beyond unconscious attitudes and beliefs. When we move in accordance with our natural structure, we cultivate the experience of joy and vitality.
Rosen Movement is deeply restorative because it cultivates body awareness and reconnect us with ourselves, with those around us, and with our environment. In addition, it is helpful in preventing injuries and reducing chronic tension. 
The Intensive workshop will be led with the expert guidance of three senior teachers: Theresa Garcia, Kate O'Shea, and Karen Peters. Each day will include movement classes taught by master teachers, sharing circles that allow for connection and community, movement anatomy that you can bring into your everyday life, and much more.
This course is designed for people who are looking for health and well-being, for those wanting to enhance their professional bodywork, and those looking for certification as a Rosen Method Movement Teacher. For first-time participants, an application process is required. Continuing education credit available for nurses and massage therapists.
