Welcome to the United States Trager Association
The Trager Approach is a pleasurable, gentle and effective approach to movement education and mind/body integration; the effects are deep and long-lasting. Many people seek Trager sessions for personal growth or increased feelings of joy and wellness.
Dr. Milton Trager devoted his life to exploring the effects of these gentle movements on the nervous system, which he associated with the unconscious mind.
To learn more about the Trager Approach or the United States Trager Association, please explore the links on the left of this page.
Roger Tolle is a Practitioner and Instructor of the Trager Approach to Movement Education and Mind Body Integration. He has a B.A. in Theater/Movement, and spent 15 years as a professional modern dancer and choreographer in Boston and New York City. The fluidity, playfulness, and elegance from his dance career are everywhere evident in the way he embodies Trager principles.
He began his Trager practice in 1984 in New York City. He now lives in Charlottesville, VA, where he maintains a private practice when not on the road teaching.
From his dance and Trager background, through his extensive study with pioneers in the field of somatic movement education, and through his personal practice of movement meditations, Roger developed a series of workshops in "Movement and Transformation". Since 1989, he has been teaching these workshops around the world.
Roger has several movement and learning items that are available through his website www.rogertolle.net and through this site.
This video is divided into four parts for easier online viewing. You may also order a DVD of the whole thing, running time about 17 minutes. In it, I illustrate why and how movement is important to a feeling of ageless freedom, ease, and well-being. Themes include movement exploration for its own sake, integration in everyday activity, using pleasure sensations as a guide, and lightness in gravity.
