Dear Members & Supporters

The SI community around the globe has been significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. With the world economy slowly coming back to life, IASI looks to be a positive force in helping our members and supporters emerge from the crisis stronger.

Therefore, we are excited to announce that plans are moving forward with hosting IASI's premier educational and networking Symposium event next Spring—March 25 –28, 2021 in Portland, Oregon.

IASI is prepared to bring you meaningful educational offerings, as well as opportunities to share each other's stories, experiences, and lessons learned with one another. Our speaker line-up has not changed.

IASI is working to make sure that our in-person event is a safe and healthy space for all attendees, and we will continue to closely monitoring the ever-changing environment. We will also be preparing to pivot to a virtual event should it become inadvisable or unsafe to host an in-person event in Portland next March.

Thank you for your patience and support during this time. As a 2020 Symposium registrant, below for your review are the options available to you going forward.

Best regards,
IASI Board of Directors

Keynote Speaker Announcement!

The Embryonic Field:
Touching the Origins of Form

Carol Agneessens, MS. has been a practitioner of Rolfing and Movement Integration for 38 years. She has been serving on the faculty of the Rolf Institute since 1993. 

She is the author of the book, The Fabric of Wholeness, (2001).

With a master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Wisconsin: Madison, Carol focuses on developing ‘Kinesthetic Intelligence’ within each student. Kinesthetic Intelligence underlies the cultivation of a listening and dimensional touch which ignites the sensory experience of whole-body awareness.

Carol’s study of Embryology began with an introduction to the ‘lemniscate’ in her basic Rolfing training with Emmett Hutchins in 1981. The lemniscate (imagine a lazy figure 8) seeded a curiosity that grew into an inquiry of the movement underlying formation.

As her interest became a dedicated study, Embryology became a portal to sensing the lemniscate-like flows moving through the surrounding fluid fields of development. These tidal movements shape and sustain the growth of the embryo. This understanding grows out of the new science of epigenetics; meaning the environment or field in which the embryo grows and in which we live have determining factors in growth and health through a lifetime.

As the embryo develops from periphery to center, the in-forming field interacts with the genetics. The field is the organizing matrix or blueprint of formation. This understanding is key in touching the implicit wholeness, multi-dimensionality of the body, and the mystery of the life force flowing through nature, through the embryo and ourselves. 

Carol teaches an Embryological Orientation to Cranial Sacral Therapy, and workshops in The Embryonic Gestures of Formation that include practical applications to Structural Integration.

Carol resides in Aptos CA where she maintains a private practice as well as teaching internationally.  (


Being There:
The Unique Contribution of Structural Integration to Spatial Medicine

Tom Myers, BCSICM, directs Anatomy Trains, which offers certification in Structural Integration in the USA, Australia, and Europe, as well as short courses in manual therapy and functional anatomy worldwide. Tom is the author of Anatomy Trains (2020, 4th ed), and co-author of Fascial Release for Structural Balance (2017, 2nd ed). The Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians, which connect the muscles through the fascial fabric, is increasingly employed in a wide variety of rehabilitation and performance enhancement modalities. 

Tom studied directly with Buckminster Fuller, Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais, Judith Aston, Emilie Conrad, and a variety of European osteopaths. He has practiced Structural Integration for over forty years in a wide variety of clinical and cultural settings.

IASI Member Talks About Symposium

"Symposium is an opportunity to come out of the solitude of private practice in Structural Integration. I look forward to sharing work experiences from the last year with my colleagues and feeling the gratitude and pride of being part of a larger community of practitioners united in a common goal."

–Justin Farrell, Certified Rolfer, Previous IASI Board Member
