GSI graduate Ruthie Fraser publishes 
Stack Your Bones: Simple Lessons for Realigning Your Body and Moving with Ease. Congratulations to Ruthie Fraser, a Guild for Structural Integration alumnus. Ruthie trained with David Davis in 2006 (pre-requisites taken with Jeff Linn), and in 2007 with Nilce Silveira in Brazil. The recently published author continues her education through workshops and mentoring and attended Emmett Hutchins 4 Handed Workshop Valentines Day workshop in 2004. Here is her story.  

I developed the Stack Your Bones lessons in my Structural Integration studio starting in 2007. I would select and offer whichever teaching in my toolbox seemed relevant to the person standing in front of me. I would pull from the methods I've studied: Structural Integration, Iyengar Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Continuum Movement, and Voice Dialogue. Or, I'd invent something new.

The "homework" I created for clients became the signature of my bodywork practice. "I heard you give people stuff to do at home." Yes, that's me. And now, I am thrilled to offer that "stuff" to a larger audience.

The purpose of this book is to present practical, widely applicable teachings in a user-friendly format. Each lesson offers a fundamental and thought-provoking embodied activity. Each lesson contains a highlighted teaching, an evocative image, and instructions for a physical practice, visualization, or contemplation.

The 100 lessons coalesce into a powerful core curriculum for redefining fitness. Based primarily in the wisdom of Dr. Ida Rolf's Structural Integration, and also influenced by Yoga and other somatic traditions, Stack Your Bones incites you to grasp and employ key principles for movement health in bite-sized pieces.

The material of Stack Your Bones serves as a complementary handbook for athletes, Yoga practitioners, martial artists, dancers, actors, fitness lovers, desk-sitters, and anyone with a body. Engaging with these lessons will help you prevent injuries, heal, alleviate discomfort, improve posture, promote muscle balance, and gain invaluable self-awareness.
