IBI offers a variety of programs for individuals or professionals seeking a better understanding of the mind-body connection and an effective way to release tension and transform limiting behaviors, or to assist clients in these processes and transformations.
Our short programs in bodymind integration, experiential bodywork and body psychotherapy are ideal for learning about our methods. Longer training allows you to engage in deeper inner work and gain training, knowledge and experience to apply these integration methods for therapeutic or personal growth purposes.

    What the participants say

    “The common thread through the week was a sense of allowing ourselves increasingly to be our fullest self, and to let the body (our own body) show us where current or past experiences are holding us back. It was deeply moving to see others (and myself too) tackle particularly painful holding patterns, and to see the joy, the lightness of being, the fresh energy that came available upon re-emerging from the intensive work.”

    Marcel van Rootselaar (New York)

    “The Core Strokes Module 1 workshop left me with great admiration for this concept. As an Occupational Therapist and Massage Practitioner I experienced how to integrate emotional processing in the work. I am inspired and empowered to work more holistically. The way Dirk teaches is very practical and interactive which I really enjoyed. The self-experiencing sessions where very helpful for my own processing and I experienced amazing personal growth. Thank you for all of that, Dirk!”
    Carina Sprinkhart, Occupational Therapist (Germany)

    “As a young retiree, I have always suffered from low back pain and have used a number of treatments (apart from surgery) to relieve myself. I find Dirk’s “Core Strokes” approach very beneficial for its holistic and in-depth action. Its action on the fascias during individual sessions gave me an immediate relaxing effect on the muscles in my pelvis, giving me freedom of positioning that I had been deprived of for a long time. A therapy combining more well-known techniques with its original and synthetic contribution that I absolutely recommend.”
    Dr. Bertrand Dutoit (Switzerland)

    “I came out of this training-workshop really nourished both by the man and by his practical and theoretical sharing on body psychotherapy. Dirk is at the same time full of wisdom, listening, compassion, patience, knowledge and his educational sharing is remarkable. It alternates practical sessions with theoretical sessions, and as a bonus, we dance and we meditate. “

    Alexis Gilliot (France) 

    “In the six years I’ve known Dirk Marivoet, he’s always impressed me with his enthusiasm for bodywork and his commitment to embrace the world and share his knowledge widely. He is a wise and loving teacher with a gentle heart and deep therapeutic knowledge about the body-mind.”

    Paula Moreau-Smith, body psychotherapist (England)

    “Dirk Marivoet’s expertise lies in a profound knowledge of the body’s and energetic systems – obviously many years of deep work flowing through his hands. I enjoyed his precise explanations of body structures and how to work with them very much. The course “Advanced Somatics Practitioner” inspired my work a lot. I can recommend him as a teacher, as well as a therapist for intense body-mind focused processes.”
    Patrick Pelzner, psychologist (Switzerland)
