Teacher Training

How can I train with you in Rosen Movement?

I have been a movement educator for over 20 years. I am  an AmSAT Certified Alexander Technique Teacher, a Certified Rosen Movement Teacher, and a Senior Rosen Movement Teacher Trainer. Two of my greatest joys in life are movement and teaching, so naturally I became a Rosen Method Movement teacher trainer!


I train teachers in affiliation with The Berkeley Center where training as a Rosen Method Movement Teacher is available through a 125- hour program, plus an internship. This program is approved by the California Board of Private and Postsecondary Vocational Education.

Continuing education units (CEUs) are available for nurses, LCSWs and MFTs, massage therapists, and for Rosen practitioners.

Students who complete this program learn the underlying theory and structure of Rosen Method movement classes and they will gain the following abilities:

  • To see and understand anatomic relationships in the body.

  • To allow ease and pleasure in movement

  • To observe people moving, analyze movement patterns, and guide students to unrecognized potential

  • To use recorded music and rhythm to support, inspire and expand movement possibilities.

The path to becoming a Rosen Method Movement teacher is one of personal growth, a process of “getting” the movements in your body and being with the emotions that arise as you connect with your inner truth.  


Each training day will begin with a full hour movement class. Students will learn the underlying theory and structure of Rosen Movement and put the theory into action with practice-teaching and giving and receiving constructive feedback.


We will explore the movements in depth using various tools, such as anatomy lessons, partner work and body readings.  The learning process will be supported with Rosen sharing circles to allow expression of new discoveries and unfolding.

My co-instructors and I tailor each training to guide each student to work with their physical and emotional edges. Come join us in creating a safe and intimate environment where aliveness, joy, and transformation happen!

Movement Coaching for trainees and interns

For already certified Rosen Movement teachers who would like to move to a deeper level in their teaching (and for Movement students who would like to move to a deeper level in their experience of themselves), one-on-one coaching can help you:


  • Understand Rosen movements from the inside out


  • Deepen your understanding and enjoyment of basic Rosen Movements, exploring discrete parts of a movement and of the body performing it, and how those pieces and parts go together to make a whole and complete movement, performed by a whole self.


  • Work with rhythm and music


  • Work with alignment and coordination


  • Increase your knowledge and inner experience of your anatomy, and bring that into your movements/teaching.  I.e. feet, hips, deep spine, breath, etc.


  • Deepen your aliveness and awareness in each and every movement.

As the light wanes, we can build trust and find delight- in our body and in life- one movement at at a time. Tuning into our structure can be both grounding and freeing.
