Continuum is a movement inquiry through which we directly experience the interconnection of our own body with the wholeness of life.


The elegant practices we will explore in this course make an art form of dissolving constraint, welcoming the liberation of the entire person at every level. 


Through breath, sound, and movement, we begin to enlarge our capacity to live from the inside out: To move, speak, think, love, play and work as liquid organisms in a bio-intelligent world. Stepping outside of the cultural models of "body" and "shape" we can discover the deep inner world of flourishing life that reveals itself with grace and ease. 


Continuum has pioneered and revolutionized the role of Somatics in health, education, relationship, physical fitness, creativity and spirituality. All are welcome.

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I ALLOW FOR THIS COURSE?
I suggest that you plan on about 1.5 hours weekly for the work associated with this course. This includes reading/watching course material, movement practice, and responding to the assignment. 
For written assignments allow 30 minutes. These are simply rough guidelines. If you are drawn into longer practice and/or reflection, wonderful. If your time is more limited, please adjust accordingly. Your engagement matters most.

“I feel that what you offered was precious beyond words, immeasurably supportive and deeply inspirational … In the same way that I am touched when I participate in a 'real' workshop, I have been deeply touched by your teaching, with ripples and ripples and ripples.
I am deeply grateful that you were able to use technology to provide such powerful teaching and that technology did not get in the way of this … I will be working from the course notes for a long time to come"
-Naomi W., Italy
