    *Special event – EGSI School – Award-winning documentary film: “Finding the Line – An Exploration of Structural Integration”

    Resulting from her studies Ida Rolf Ph.D. developed a program of postural re-patterning using fascial manipulation and movement education which she called Structural Integration and which is nowadays known in the public at large as ‘rolfing’. She was convinced that a better physical structure would improve function on all levels – physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual.

    Milano, Prague, Warszaw 2018 – 2022
    This movie tells the story of an adventure that will take the viewer into Ida Rolf’s world of Structural Integration. At the heart of the movie are 8 students and their quest to understand Ida Rolf’s philosophy during their 3 year Basic Trainings in Milano, Prague and Warsaw.
    The movie also explains the basic ideas behind Structural Integration and discusses some recent research into connective tissue and fascia.

    Mary Bond: “A superb introduction to Structural Integration for the general public and at the same time interesting for the already initiated.”

    David Davis: “I don’t know of any other medium than this movie that conveys the spirit of Dr. Rolf and the work she brought into the world with love.”

    Elizabeth Lamoureux: “To experience this film will be a joy for anyone who has been curious about the history, education or magic that is Structural Integration.”
