Instructor Training Seminar (ITS)


Passionate about sharing the work and inspiration of Ortho-Bionomy as a teacher? Ursula Hofer and Christina Montes de Oca are leading an Instructor Training Seminar April 22-26, 2020 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Ursula Hofer has been teaching Ortho-Bionomy since 1986, and Christina Montes de Oca since 1991. Between 1999 and 2012 they developed and taught the first school-based structured Ortho-Bionomy Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner Training Programs through the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe, NM. They have co-taught 6 Instructor Trainings together during the last 15 years.

The ITS as an opportunity to help trainees receive clarity about standard Phase 4 material and become comfortable teaching it. The training is also a great chance to learn about the different lineages in the O-B community. It is also a wonderful opportunity to learn group dynamics from the inside out and to develop interactive feedback skills that truly support the trainees’ and students’ learning.

The Instructor Training is a program for those Advanced Practitioners who want to teach. Instructor trainees have completed 1,000 hours of training in the Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner Programs. Our Instructor Training Program embodies a commitment to excellence in education and high standards. This ensures that students are receiving not only training on the techniques and principles, but also the philosophy, mood, and energetics that are Ortho-Bionomy.

The Instructor Training Program is a mentorship program that consists of instructor training seminars, mentorship and guided teaching experiences.
