New Changes for a New Year
We are moving full steam ahead into 2017 with some exciting changes to our teaching team, programs and Rosen Method Bodywork and Movement Intensives.
New Position for Rosen Method Bodywork Program
Sarah Dandridge, one of our teaching faculty, will be taking on a new role as Director of the Certification Level III Program (Internship) as of January 1, 2017. Sarah has worked for many years as a Primary Supervisor training Level III students to become Rosen Method Bodywork practitioners. She is highly qualified, and we know her experience developing and honing the role of a primary supervisor will be invaluable to the RMIC. We are very excited to welcome Sarah to our team in her new role and look forward to continuing the valuable work of training a new generation of Rosen Method Bodywork practitioners.
Refocusing Certification Level III (Internship)
We have revamped our Certification Level III program adding new curriculum such as practice marketing and development to better meets the needs of our students as they transition to becoming practitioners. As part of the new program we are creating Level III 5-day classes that will allow students to focus on advanced topics in Rosen Method. We hope this will lead our students to become confident in their knowledge and skill as well as their ability to take Rosen Method out into the world and share it.
Our 2017 calendar is now set, so make sure to have a look and register quickly to hold your place. We are happy to say we have been steadily growing and we know 2017 will prove to be even more fruitful. The RMIC will again offer our February, May, and October Bodywork Intensives, and an April and November Movement Intensive along with some other wonderful workshops listed below.

Anatomy and Expression Workshop – July 12 – 16, 2017
We are so pleased to have Matthew van der Giessen join us again. He has collaborated with us over the last two years in developing an experiential and emotional anatomy and movement workshop “Anatomy and Expression” for the Rosen Method programs and for professionals in the somatic field.
Matthew van der Giessen has been integrating theories and knowledge of the mind and body for over 30 years. He understands that the anatomical path of self-inquiry helps practitioners more fully understand their inner sensory landscape, allowing them to deepen their ability to meet others from a place of embodied presence.
We have incorporated Rosen Method Movement into this workshop with the help of Karen Peters, Rosen Method Movement Senior Teacher Trainer. The integration of Karen’s unique skills and knowledge deepens the learning process and together Karen and Matthew provide an embodied experience of the body and its organization. This is a great workshop for Rosen Method students and all professionals in the somatic field. We hope to see you there! LINK HERE FOR DETAILS.
Practitioners’ Retreat, August 9-14, 2017
Last August we held our first ever Practitioners’ Retreat, offering an opportunity for meaningful connection and collaboration in a setting that was open, safe and inspiring. The event was a great success bringing practitioners from across Canada and the US to come together and have a great and relaxing week in a beautiful rural setting on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada.
We have already set dates for 2017 and look forward to seeing many of you there. We hope to build on the work that was done last year and grow our knowledge and skills through deep and impactful sharing. Just as was done last year, we encourage you come early or stay afterwards to enjoy all that the Sunshine Coast, BC has to offer, from beautiful beaches to world-class hiking and breathtaking vistas.
