“Van Alstine’s Structural Integration Exercise” Paul Van Alstine, advanced Rolfer® and Pilates instructor at Studio One Pilates, is the founder of VASIE. VASIE is based on the exercise system devised by Joseph Pilates and the movement and postural concepts of “Structural Integration” developed by Ida P. Rolf. Had J. Pilates and I. Rolf collaborated to find the Unifying Theory of Exercise™ this holistic exercise program may have been developed long ago. Both were pioneers of powerful systems designed to change the body at a core level. Combining these systems VASIE is designed to make changes to the bone structure, re-ignite the link between breath and movement, and tone the fascia, as well as the muscular system. Unlike other workouts, VASIE builds physical, energetic, and emotional balance in the body.
