Continuum is a gentle, restorative, somatic movement practice that focuses on developing internal sensation and awareness. We use breath, sounding and subtle movement to soften our restrictive movement patterns and cultural conditioning so that we can regain access to and revel in our bodies’ innate wisdom, responsiveness, and healing potential. Rather than viewing the body as an object, Continuum explores the body as a living process.
Continuum has been shown to be beneficial for pain, chronic injury and other physical limitations, including groundbreaking work with paralysis, and promotes deep relaxation, wellbeing and a sense of connectedness. Continuum is also employed by artists and movers to dissolve blocks and support creative innovation and improvisation. It has influenced the fields of dance, bodywork, movement therapy, performance, psychotherapy and more.
Open to all levels of experience.
