In the Presence of Greatness

At a recent Myoskeletal Alignment workshop in Tucson, AZ, I had the opportunity to work with and get to know Mr. Jim Asher. Jim and Erik Dalton have been friends since the early days at the Rolf Institute. What a pleasure it was to be in the company of these two great minds.

Jim started with Ida Rolf in 1971, and was with her until her death. He was one of the original instructors at the Rolf Institute and assisted Ida in advanced trainings as Rolfing (R) was born.

While in Tucson, Jim helped in assisting the Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques (R) course on Neck, Low Back, and Shoulder Pain. We were able to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner with Jim....what an interesting fellow.

My understanding is that Jim offers one of the most dynamic cranio-sacral classes in the world, love to study with him some day as well...until then, thanks Jim!
