Advanced Strategies in Functional Integration

Integration vs. Differentiation is an outstanding Functional Integration-oriented advanced training with Ruthy Alon, filmed in Australia in 2010.

In these videos, we see Ruthy Alon at her most brilliant and generous, while demonstrating her profoundly diverse and creative Functional Integration skills. We observe Ruthy working with a variety of participants in a variety of positions including on the stomach, back, side, sitting and standing, as well as detailed and sophisticated work with the head and neck, shoulders and chest. She pays special attention to the integration work at the end of a lesson and generates a variety of ways to connect her work on the table, with sitting, standing and walking. It is a virtuoso two-day workshop.
