Prerequisite to Somatic Training
Announcing a new somatic teacher workshop:
Somatic Based Teaching Using the Continuum Model
The prerequisite to apply for the “Somatic Based Teaching Using the Continuum Model” is 100 hours from any current Authorized Continuum Movement teachers.
Module 1 is required to be taken first for all accepted participants.
Next date for module one is May 28 – June 3, 2016
Once module 1 is completed any of the other modules can be taken in any order.
Each training requires a minimum of 12 participants
At least 75 of the 100 hours must be credited from workshops, which gives you the immersion necessary to really get a sense of the work. We will also accept a total of 25 hours from individual classes that can count towards the 100 hours. These hours must also be from a current Authorized Continuum Movement teacher.
Once you have the 100 hours, fill out the application and email it back to the Continuum office and pay the application fee of $75. We will review your application and let you know when you have been accepted.
The program is a 500 hour, 10 module course. Once module 1 has been taken you may take any modules that work with your schedule, they don’t have to be taken in numerical order–except when a module has a prerequisite to take such as Anatomy I and Anatomy II. The cost will be $1200 for each training module.
Subject matter will include the philosophy of Continuum, wave motion, breath, anatomy, physics, developmental movement, and group dynamics.
After completion of the program as we are an ISMETA-approved training, you would qualify to join ISMETA as a Registered Somatic Movement Educator or Registered Somatic Movement Therapist.
At the completion of the course, if you are interested in becoming a Continuum teacher you would submit your application and a dvd of you leading a small group in a dive to the Continuum Teachers Board for their review and acceptance to become a Continuum teacher.
All of our Authorized Continuum Movement teachers sign a yearly contract, provide proof of liability insurance and pay the yearly teachers dues. They are also asked to keep current with the work by participating in a teacher’s meeting at least every other year.
We appreciate your interest. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call the Continuum office, 310-593-4651.
This workshop is recommended and encouraged for those of you who are interested in becoming an embodied somatic teacher. We are very excited to offer this opportunity as it will be the foundation course for becoming a certified Continuum teacher. Teaching is a whole body process. Too often the somatics of teaching is ignored and overlooked. This course will use the Continuum model and philosophy for helping anyone interested to become a more masterful teacher.
