GET ROLFED: A Note From CFSBKer Jessa Z.
Jessa Z. has been a certified Structural Integrator since 2006. Before that she was a certified Anusara teacher running around the city teaching yoga, hosting retreats, teaching anatomy, and generally just geeking out on the body. She loves to move and challenge her body. She runs, swims, dances, and plays. She was a competitive athlete as a kid and had injured herself repeatedly throughout her teen years. It took a lot of trial and error, but with a toolbox of yoga, Pilates, weight lifting, and Rolfing, she has been able to live pain free despite playing hard.
What is Rolfing/ Structural Integration?
Rolfing was developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf, a biochemist hailing from Brooklyn NY (for real). She called her work Structural Integration (SI). SI’s premise is that gravity can support the body if the body is organized properly on its vertical line, the generally accepted position for “good posture.”
RSI re-educates the body, improving its organization through a progression of sessions that manipulate the fascia. This reorganization of the fascia releases compensatory patterning and frees our soft tissue allowing the body to adopt a more efficient posture. The result is increased range-of-motion and movement differentiation, increased metabolic support, and higher functioning proprioception. Translation: you work more efficiently!
Jessa is offering a super discounted rate, only for CrossFit South Brooklyn! Try it out for $100 (reduced from $175), or three sessions for $375, (reduced from $525).
