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!

Winter 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. Tuition is $700 and $420 reviewers fee.
