Published: Structure Function Integration Journal of the Dr Ida Rolf Institute
In this article, Rolfer and yoga instructor Michael Black offers three yoga poses to teach clients to integrate their breath after their Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI) sessions. First is the discussion of direct and indirect language when teaching movement during a Rolfing session. Then, the author describes: (1) three-part breath, (2) thoracic extension and flexion, and (3) child’s pose sidebends. There are many breathing movement exercises; the author highlights these three for their ease and effectiveness. The hope is that these breath-centered poses will help clients in their day-to-day life to be empowered so that they can improve and embody a full expansive breath.
