UK School & Practitioners

United Kingdom Training Centre, established 2004

‘It is important to take this experience of healing into the world – this experience of our true being’ – Marion Rosen

The Rosen Method’s UK school was set up by Annabelle Apsion and Ingrid-Maria Nordgren, two practitioners who live in England but who trained abroad. They wanted to offer the Rosen Method training at locations in the UK and, in 2004, they started organising the country’s first short workshops and week-long ‘intensives’. A number of practitioners have since qualified from the UK training centre.

From the beginning the school aimed to be international. It invited teachers and practitioners from training centres abroad to lead and participate in the workshops. It did this partly for practical reasons – there were initially no qualified teachers in the UK. They also did it because Annabelle and Ingrid-Maria believe that cultural differences can have a big impact on the teaching and expression of Rosen Method. It is now an underlying aim of the UK school to welcome teachers and participants from abroad to encourage its courses to embrace the full richness of the human spirit.

The UK training centre organises workshops in the UK both for personal development and for professional training. Each year it aims to hold at least three intensives and a larger number of weekend workshops and short retreats, sometimes abroad. For more information on location, prices and dates please see our events page.
