RolfYoga has its roots in Dr. Ida Rolf's method and philosophy called 'Structural Integration',
which is an original and scientifically validated system of body restructuring and movement
RolfYoga developed by Aleš Urbanczik, explores the application of Dr. Rolf's principles to the
traditional asanas of Hatha Yoga.
RolfYoga utilizes physical and mental exercises to further improve the balance, traditional
Yoga Asanas seek.
After RolfYoga and Structural Integration, not only do you stand taller and move with greater
ease, but you will have more vitality and a greater sense of well being. Chronic pain is
reduced and often disappears.
Concurrently pleasant personality changes occur as you see the world from a less stressful,
more secure structure.
The key word is 'balance' - between the left and right side of the body, between the flexor and
extensor muscles, between the psoas and rhomboids, and most importantly between the
prevertebral and postvertebral structures of the human body.
Thus the classes work very strongly towards a lengthening, strengthening and balancing of the
core postural muscles of the body, the psoas, the respiratory diaphragm, the urogenital
diaphragm and the rhomboids.
This is the 'gospel' of RolfYoga :
Work towards as much decompression as possible in the lumbar spine. When the lumbars
lengthen and the rhomboids start supporting the shoulders, the human body moves toward a higher
level of alignment. It is then supported by the energy field in which it moves, the
gravitational field of the earth.'
