When people from all walks of life come together in a common pursuit of body-oriented learning, wonderful, inspiring and life-changing things can happen!

At BTI, the educational experience centers on a community of dedicated students, a passionate and highly trained faculty, and a well-defined set of core values and attributes that are an essential part of who we are and what we do here. And this experience is so beautifully described in the writings of our graduates that are shared on the Testimonials page.

We extend our gratitude to all those who have studied at BTI over the past three decades. Their presence and commitment has changed our lives, and continues to make an incredible difference in the lives of everyone they touch.

You are invited to become a part of this vibrant educational community, where you can pursue your own goals and dreams. Here, the experiences you’ll have along with fellow learners will give rise to your very own stories of growth, change and discovery.

Visionary Leadership
The school is owned and directed by Rick Rosen and Carey Smith, who have united their diverse backgrounds in therapy, education and the arts to create this visionary model for learning. Their collaboration provides a dynamic and supportive environment for people to express their fullest potentials.

Support at Every Step
