Are you ready to feel more of that Freddie Couples-like power, fluidity and lack of tension in your golf swing? Well, I just might have the answer for you in a type of movement repatterining work called Trager. Listen in to hear more about how this can transform your game (and your life!)
Roger Tolle is a Practitioner and Instructor of the Trager® Approach to Movement Education and Mind Body Integration. Besides teaching for Trager International in English and German, he also consults with massage schools and individual bodyworkers on movement issues in a holistic practice, gives presentations on somatic movement education at various conferences, and does private and group training integrating body, mind, sex and spirit.
He has a B.A. in Theater/Movement, and spent 15 years as a professional modern dancer and choreographer in Boston and New York City. The fluidity, playfulness and elegance from his dance career are everywhere evident in the way he embodies Trager principles.
He began his Trager practice in 1984 in New York City. He now lives in Charlottesville, VA, where he maintains a private practice when not on the road teaching.
From his dance and Trager background, through his extensive study with pioneers in the field of somatic movement education, and through his personal practice of movement meditations, Roger developed a series of workshops in “Movement and Transformation”. Since 1989, he has been teaching these workshops around the world.
In 2003, he created and produced three decks of “Body ReMinder” Mentastics playing cards. These are now available in English through the US Trager Association at tragerus.org, and in German through German Trager Association at trager.de. They are also to be found with Japanese translation at the new Japanese website. French and Italian versions are in development.
Recently he has produced a number of videos about the Trager® Approach—a couple short ones available to students and to the public, and several longer ones designed to support Trager Students in their fieldwork practice.
