Above all else, we seek connection - with parts of ourselves that are repressed, gone underground or ignored, with other people, other species and the larger universe. We cannot experience life in its fullness unless we have an intimate relationship with ourselves and our body.
Instead of precontrived sequences, immerse yourself in the rich pleasure of meeting your body in creative explorations
Explore why I feel so passionate about bridging the beautiful fluid practices of Continuum with the Ancient timeless practice of Yoga.
Listening to the body's language
We will explore:
Learn tracking skills for greater self regulation
Interoception - Sensing from the inside
Exteroception - Sensing from the outside in
Why are these important to movement
Explore how we learn on a non-verbal level
the biology of movement - cultivating the natural
Following the breath instead of doing specific pranayama
We learn the difference between initiating movement and waiting for an invitation from your body's natural wisdom which is fluid. And why it's important to do both in Somatic skills. This is rich and refreshing territory in the world of Yoga, join me!

What is Continuum?
Continuum is an approach to exploring how we live in, and move through, our bodies. Continuum is a portal to a deeper awareness of, and connection to, embodiment, movement, learning, growth, well-being, and creativity. Attention to internal experience through breath, sound, meditative awareness and fluid movement expands our experience of embodiment and opens us to new possibilities of inhabiting our bodies and expressing ourselves through them.
It is challenging to define or describe Continuum without having a direct experience of it.
The following summary of Continuum’s basic principles and practices is intended to spark your curiosity and inspire you to find out for yourself by attending a class or workshop.
In a Continuum class, emergent ideas, potent images, or interesting themes set the ground for movement exploration. Different movements are combined with breath and sound to encourage embodied, mindful exploration of the idea, image or theme. We often change our relationship to gravity to invite new internal feedback and information. The pace of a class may be quiet, slow, and meditative, with participants exploring nearly invisible micro-movements. A class can also be fast and lively with a room full of bodies moving in large wave-like, spiraling motions. Continuum fitness classes combine sound, music and fluid movement to create aerobic activities using weights and other exercise props and equipment. A class may be composed of a group of any size, ranging from two to several hundred.
Continuum as a regular practice can become part of a person’s daily reality and many students observe shifts in all the ways they move in the world. The sensibility of Continuum can inform and influence our physical activity, behaviors, feelings, thoughts, daily actions and lives. Continuum contributes to the field of health and movement education by providing a varied spectrum of movement modalities for all people. This practice has applications in countless areas of personal and professional life: healthcare, science, bodywork, meditation, psychotherapy, spiritual practice, business organization, group dynamics, education, dance, artistic creativity, performance, sports and fitness, etc. Continuum invites passionate and intimate participation in the myriad ways we engage with our own lives and converge with the lives around us.
