DellaGrotte Core Movement Integration

Moving Well & Fit for the Rest of Your Life

Upcoming Courses

“I am a physical therapist practicing for 25 years, studied and now certified in Core Movement Integration using Feldenkrais principles with Josef DellaGrotte. I began this process as a client not recovering well from herniated discs and sciatica with traditional therapies. As a competitive runner I could not accept being unable to run without pain. Now I have learned how to move more organized, pain-free, medication-free. I use what I have learned (and continue to learn) to assist my own clients in reducing pain and regaining functional movements” Jean Sarno, PT

Path 4Core Myofascial Pathways in Gait, Movement & Posture

For Practitioners (earn NCBTMB CEs) and For Anyone Interested in Learning How to Walk Properly

Instructor: Josef DellaGrotte, PHD, LMT, CFP-physio, and CMI assistants

Walking is the premier functional exercise of daily life for humans from primitive to modern. This course describes and teaches the biological-biomechanical universal core walking form as therapeutic education and somatic reprogramming.

Dellagrotte Core Movement Integration (CMI) is designed to promote efficient, integrated movement through the whole body using the brain’s sense and image of movement plus myofascial bodywork and specific lesson-exercises. CMI integrates the movement of the spine, pelvis, ribs, shoulders and feet through 6 core neuro-myofascial pathways.

Purpose & Goals: learn the essential bio-functional movements to optimize functional and structural walking, and apply with clients.

You will learn:

  1. The basic core pathways of gait using the 4th metatarsal pathway
  2. Lesson-exercises based on “awareness in movement” to connect and program
  3. Integrated prep exercises for walking (see handouts or use a camera)
  4. Selected hands–on CMI applications to read and follow movement direction

Key Learning Points:

You will be able to walk better, easier, and you will enjoy it!

Basic & Advanced Hands-On Clinical Practicum: Reading, Tracking, Releasing Pathways in Walking Gait

walking collageSunday, April 12, 2015
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Maynard, Massachusetts

Enrollment is limited to 12

This seminar follows from March 29th, for experienced CMI students and certified practitioners interested in more advanced level hands-on training (NCBTMB CEs available).

Neuro-somatic movement using hands-on selected module techniques

This hands-on Workshop is designed to awaken and connect CNS with muscle, tissue and joints. “Bodywork”–from massage and physical therapy to chiropractic–can and does exact a slow growing, cost-price in wear and tear on your body. CMI hands-on work bridges that gap. You can do hands-on work, moving smarter, not only saving your own body from inevitable stress wear, but also combining this with self movement education and exercise, improving yourself. This approach is a paradigm shift from the old “treat, stretch, adjust, strengthen” (which may not improve brain function).

Tuition/early registration by 4/2: $150
Note: March 29 & April 12 are sequential; register for both: Tuition/$280
April 12th can be taken separately, by qualification.

To Register: USE PAYPAL (below) or you can mail a check to Core Movement Integration, PO Box 95, Barre, MA 01005 NOTE NEW ADDRESS (credit cards are accepted–call 978-461-0221).


“It was a privilege to be part of [the Spine Workshop] in Castrocaro. The sessions were wonderful, instructive and helpful. I was charmed by the lovely group of people who are practitioners. And, of course, the region of Emilia Romagna was special.

Your approach makes a great deal of sense to me. I was amazed at my (relative) ease of movement, really from very early on in the course, and certainly by the close of the 3 days.”

Congratulations to Byron! 

” I just got promoted to Yondan (4th Dan) in Aikido, for the New Year!!”

From Byron Eddy (post Advanced Seminar)

“…You know I have been practicing Aikido for over thirty years and it also is one of those elusive obvious phenomena’s. And that is why I keep coming [to CMI workshops]. It gets a little clearer each time and sometimes there are great leaps forward,sometimes there are plateaus that can seem to go on forever. The point is that I have the same experience when I go to CMI seminars such as this recent one. I came away feeling new connections and new confidence.

Of course, one can stay at home and practice and make gains but it is the group experience and the skill of a master teacher that illuminate the path. That is why I keep coming. I am so grateful that you are there for us.

All the best…and can’t wait to get back up there. “- Byron
