Ortho-Bionomy® Association of Canada OBAC Policy information for On-Line Class Attendance

“Online instruction cannot replace the hands-on experience from in person classes, and students should seek out extra support from an instructor or their advisor as needed.”

All Online classes require real-time instructor interaction and are to be documented as “Online” on certificates and on the program record form.

Number of on-line classes Accepted: each class will be accepted only once to either of the OBAC training programs levels (Practitioner or Advanced Practitioner) For example: If you attend an on-line platform for the Demonstration Skills, Elements of Successful Practice, Practitioner Training Seminar or Ethics and Emotions in the Practitioner level then in the Advanced Practitioner level you must attend the class in person as the peer learning is essential.

Signing documents: Signatures won’t be obtainable for the PT program papers, but a student can write in the name of the instructor and note that it was a virtual class and include a copy of the certificate of completion with their paperwork.

Ortho-Bionomy Programs

Interested in becoming an Ortho-Bionomy Practitioner?

The Registered Practitioner programs are designed to give students a thorough understanding of the principles of Ortho-Bionomy in addition to providing extensive hands-on experience in both classes and supervised practice. Practitioner trainees choose a Registered Instructor, with a minimum of one year of teaching experience, who will act as their Advisor and assist throughout the training period by offering guidance, support and constructive feedback.

In order to ensure the highest standard of Ortho-Bionomy education, the Ortho-Bionomy Association of Canada (OBAC) has compiled a program which must be completed by any applicant that desires to become either a Registered Practitioner, or a Registered Advanced Practitioner.

Rhoda Hollander

Calgary, AB

Rhoda began the study of Ortho-Bionomy in early 2001  She is an Advanced Practiotioner and Instructor  and currently practices in Cochrane, Alberta.  Her interest in Ortho-Bionomy came as a result of her search for wellness after a sudden, seven year long bout with severe nervous system reactions to contact with everything of a chemical  nature. During those years her life was turned upside down as she was consumed with the need to find some relief and to regain her previous good health.   

“My path on the search for wellness led me through many modalities and supplemental programs, which helped immensely in the beginning, but progress was slow and after seven years it seemed to me that I was at a stand still in my recovery process.  I knew there must be a missing link that was keeping me from moving forward in my journey.  I then turned my attention to Ortho-Bionomy and after my very first session with a practitioner, I knew that this totally holistic approach was working to reawaken my body’s own ability to heal.  Ortho-Bionomy assisted in helping me to become aware of the repetitive patterns within my body, which were keeping me stuck where I was.”  

Rhoda made the decision at that time to learn all she could about Ortho-Bionomy with the intention of helping others. She soon came to know that this gentle, non-invasive work, and trusting in the body’s wisdom to heal itself, could be of great benefit to all.  She has integrated Ortho-Bionomy into her life and loves helping others to find peace, joy and contentment in their lives, through a healthy body, mind and spirit.
