Nilce is based in São Paulo, Brazil where she earned her Degree in Psychology.
She became interested in SI when she saw its remarkable effects on the human psyche. Nilce taught Psychology and Body Awareness for the Rolf Institute (R.I.) following her graduation there in 1983.
As a founding member of the Brazilian Association of Rolfers (Associação Brasileira de Rolfistas (ABR)), Nilce was also instrumental in bringing the Rolf Institute classes to Brazil.
Thereafter, along with some of the R.I.'s senior faculty members, she helped form the Guild for Structural Integration (GSI) in order to preserve the original teachings of Dr. Rolf.
Nilce has worked both individually and alongside Dr. Rolf's chosen teachers in training students to practitioner and advanced practitioner levels in the U.S. and Brazil. Through her workshops, she has traveled the world to enrich the quality of work and depth of understanding of SI practitioners.
Having worked for many years alongside the world's most experienced teachers of SI, Nilce is now recognized as an expert in her own right. She is committed to establishing Dr. Rolf's work internationally, and in strengthening its position in today's marketplace.

Additional workshops with Dr. Robert Schleip, Dr. Peter Schwind, Hubert Godard and various advanced Teachers cleared his vision for classical Structural Integration. He sees himself in a direct lineage to Ida Rolf.
