Learn to access your vitality and inner resilience with Rosen Method Bodywork

4-Day Bodywork Intensive 

The demonstrations are a teaching time where the teacher shares what they are doing, seeing and feeling. During this time questions are invited. Each person is invited to participate at a pace that supports them.

The Intensives invite personal self-discovery and professional deepening

In a Rosen Method Bodywork Intensive participants will explore in depth and gain a greater understanding of the powerful simplicity of the work through the Rosen Method circle, bodywork demonstration, movement class, and the Rosen Method quality of touch and words.

In an open and safe environment, participants experience the opportunity to observe the effects of the work in themselves and their fellow students through demonstrations, hands on experience, discussion and sharing.

    Rosen Method Bodywork Intensives offer an effective way to access your vitality and inner resilience as your body learns to shift out of survival mode and into ease.

  • Participants have the opportunity to awaken and cultivate a presence that is both receptive and open to others, yet grounded and supported in their bodies resulting in experiences of greater connection to self and others and an improved ability to live in the moment.
  • Through this work people can become more aware of past experiences, sensations, impulses, emotions, or needs that were not fully allowed at the time of there happening, due to early childhood circumstances beyond their control.
  • With increased embodied awareness people begin to develop the capacity to integrate past experiences more fully and therefore gain a greater awareness of themselves in the present moment and openness to the possibilities of wellbeing.
  • Our experienced teachers work with the group and one-on-one to support the participants progress throughout the Intensive.
  • Most Bodywork Intensives are held in a residential setting with lodging and meals provided.  This setting is conducive to fostering focus and a safe space for growth and renewal.
  • Workshops usually have space for 6-14 participants depending on the location and number of teachers.
  • Intensives can benefit anyone wanting more joy and connection in their life and to improve their emotional or physical wellbeing.
  • They are also appropriate for anyone looking for continuing education and greater knowledge of the human body and emotional wellness. For those in the somatic field, this workshop can provide a great opportunity for professional development.

About Rosen Method Bodywork

Marion Rosen, Founder of Rosen Method

Rosen Method Bodywork is a unique form of bodywork using sensitive, gentle touch and words that invite deep relaxation.  In moments of deep relaxation, long-held feelings and memories may surface and be spoken. We can become aware of choices we made early in life around which we have shaped our lives. Rosen Method allows for the access of these feelings and experiences through the body, and the access of the unconscious through touch.

Rosen Method Bodywork gives you a greater understanding of the role of emotions in creating muscle tension and how emotions move through and are held in the body from early life experience.  With increased awareness of how early life shaped you, uncovering the love within becomes possible.

The Rosen Method practitioner has been trained to contact and connect with this tension, encouraging the client's awareness of the barriers that have been unconsciously held in their body. The practitioner follows subtle changes in the client's breath and muscle tension, supporting the possibility of shifts and changes. A subtle change can be a doorway into the recovery of vast potential.

"This work is about transformation - from the person we think we are to the person we really are.  In the end, we can't be anyone else."  Marion Rosen, Founder
