Core Training

I have attended level 1, 2 and 3 in Core Fascial Release and each have been Powerful and Freeing on every level. Thank’s Pam!

CORE I Intensive

Designed and developed by Noah Steven Karrasch (Advanced Rolfer/Author) to provide an “all purpose recipe” of CORE fascial Release.

His philosophy of effective and safe Bodywork that Coaxes Order and Restores Energy offers massage therapists and other bodyworkers the opportunity to work with their clients in a new and efficient way.
Practitioners conserve their own energy and find the method easier on their body while patrons are empowered to take a more active role in their sessions.

CORE Bodywork facilitates change in a Direct, Deep and Dynamic manner.

This is a 2 day course that is predominantly practical in our working on each other and model.

CPD: 16 Hours (2 days certificated)
Cost: £380 (£150 Deposit)
Places : 4-10 
Pre-requisite – Swedish Massage, Yoga Teacher (or equivalent)

CORE II Intensive

We continue to work with the one hour “all purpose recipe” for a session of generic, good-for-what-ails-you bodywork. 

After that we learn specific CORE Fascial Release techniques that enhance the recipe and offers the practitioner a host of new specific areas to work on. 

We also visit emotional anatomy, seated backwork and review the CORE Philosophy. This is a more intensely practical class with the giving and receiving of sessions.

This is a 3 day workshop

CPD: 24 Hours (3 days certificated)
Cost: £540 (£150 Deposit)
Places : limited to 6 places
Pre-requisite – CORE I

CORE III Intensive –
The Five Series

The Five Series focuses is the culmination of Noah Karrasch’s 30+ years of bodywork. In the intensive six-day course we’ll look at a five session recipe designed to touch all the problem spots in a body, in several different ways.

In addition, we’ll discuss each session, watch a demonstration by the tutor, work in partnership with each other through the five session series, and take one model through the series as well.

Particular attention is given to developing greater communication skills with clients. This class examines how health can be integrated into the lives of clients and students. CORE is not Rolfing! This is a specific series that accomplishes many of Rolfing’s goals, but also intends to achieve different results.

Students will come away with a healthy respect for a recipe that lets them get creative while honouring basic CORE principles. For serious students only! This is the recipe for five sessions CORE work.

This course is completed over 6 full days.
Pre-requisite is CORE II (usually 1 year prior)

CPD: 56 hours (6 days over 7 certificated)
Cost £1250 (£250 Deposit)
Places: limited to 6
Pre-requisistes: CORE I&II

CORE IV Intensive –
The Final Step

The final step revisits the 5 series from a different perspective. Taking 2 models through the five series while giving and receiving your own 5 sessions of CORE Bodywork.

This is for students who wish to review the five series, develop a greater understanding, receive a five series and are might consider teaching in the future. It is for serious students who want to develop and polish deeper bodywork skills, and the class is guaranteed to change both the way you think about bodies and about the recipe for five sessions learned in CORE III. Those who have completed this course understand the value of CORE IV.

The CORE IV certificate is not recognized by any governing or certifying body as a terminal degree; this training is for bodyworkers who seriously want to enhance their skills, not their credentials. That said, this certificate is becoming more valued and valuable as more students are practicing and seeing the value of CORE work.

This course is taken over 8 days.
By invitations and previously completed CORE I, II & III (minimum of 1 year prior).
