Course Description:

At the Crestone College of Structural Integration, we teach the Ten-Series as the foundation of our Structural Integration practice. The Ten-Series is a sequence of ten ideas that focus on organizing the human form around a central vertical axis we call “The Line.” As practitioners, The Line becomes the guiding principle for bringing the body in balance with gravity. This may sound simple, but understanding the nuance of the Ten-Series takes time, and opportunities for probing its depths are rare in our sped-up digital age. This being the case, it is our pleasure to present you with an opportunity to refine your practice of the Ten-Series in a concentrated setting with an experienced instructor. David Davis has spent over 39 years devoted to understanding Structural Integration, by plumbing the depths of the Ten-Series with his clients, colleagues and students. David’s commitment to the Ten-Series has led him to insights into the practice of Structural Integration that he delights in sharing. Structural Integration Practitioners frequently comment on his enthusiasm, skillfulness as a teacher, and his depth of knowledge. In this 3-day class, David will review the Ten-Series, engaging participants to open up and look deeper into familiar topics such as: structure, balance, grace, energy and the human potential. The specifics of the sessions will be reviewed and discussed, as well as their application to post-Ten Series work. Participants will give and receive three sessions that relate to the ideas presented from the Ten-Series.

Instructor Bio: 

David Davis was born in Denver, Colorado in 1947. He was introduced to Structural Integration in 1964 by a series of articles about Dr. Ida P. Rolf and her Work. His initial Ten-Series in 1973 was profoundly transformational and inspired him to become a practitioner. David graduated from Adams State College in 1975 with a BA, a prerequisite for the Rolf Institute’s application process.

David completed the Basic Training in 1976-77, studying with Emmett Hutchins, Michael Salveson, and Neal Powers. He met Dr. Rolf at her eightieth birthday gala, and was encouraged by her to carry on the Work. David studied with Judith Aston for two years, completing a series of six-day intensives. He received his Advanced Training in 1985 with Emmett, who encouraged him to teach.

David was a founding member of the Guild for Structural Integration in 1989, and taught Anatomy and Basic and Advanced Trainings with Emmett, Peter Melchior, Stacey Mills, Neal Powers, and Nilce Silveira. David was a partner and protégé of Peter for 12 years, learning how to practice and teach the intricacies of SI.

For over 24 years, David has taught 3-day and 6-day SI workshops internationally. He specializes in teaching embryology, fascial anatomy and working with scoliosis, infusing his classes with wisdom, compassion and humor. David has been an innovator in SI education, teaching a Basic Training class to medical doctors and physical therapists at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in New Jersey in 1993, the only SI training to be taught at a major hospital. He has taught with SI research scientists Dr. James Oschman and Dr. Robert Schleip, integrating the practice of SI with the latest scientific research and information.

In 2007, David co-founded the Crestone College of Structural Integration with Buddy Frank to bring their vision and understanding of SI to the world. They have taught over twelve classes through CCSI, and continue to expand the Work in the lineage and legacy of Dr. Rolf.

David has been in private practice since 1977, completing over 40,000 sessions. Structural Integration is his discipline, practice and service to humanity, as he continues learning with every session. David has meditated for over forty years, is an avid golfer and runner, and has served on numerous non-profit Boards. He met his wife Lorain in 1977. In 1979, they went to India to be with Haidakhan Baba and have been honored to study with leading Tibetan Buddhist masters and Native American teachers. David and Lorrain moved to Crestone in 1983, where they lived for 30 years and recently moved to Denver, where David continues his practice.
