Essential Elements of Continuum 2
ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF CONTINUUM MOVEMENT
All movement originates with breath. Fixations, compensatory patterns, family history, trauma and emotional stress are all maintained in the movement or inhibition of breath. By engaging with variations in breathing, we are able to stimulate a wide spectrum of internal sensations, responses and movements. Healing, growth and all mobility, whether physical, emotional or spiritual, are enhanced by the dexterity of breath.
Sound is audible breath, penetrating the density of locked tissue. It eases mobility while releasing areas of stagnation and stress. Specific sound frequencies engage various systems of the body. By coupling sound with movement, we increase the agility of both. Sounding further connects us with each other and to the resonant whole, providing another source for communication.
Continuum’s movements are designed specifically to enhance the undulating spirals and circularity of the fluid system. A full range of non-patterned movement, from dynamic full-bodied expression to subtle micro-movements, stimulates neurological growth and vibrancy. Undulating wave motion permeates tissue, softens boundaries and amplifies sensation. Wave motion is the primary access to our bio-intelligence that is not bound by time, space or condition.
SENSATION AND PLEASURE
In Continuum, we use sensation as a guide for awakening the body’s mysteries and the activating principle of the life force that feeds and nurtures the entire system. Sensations of pleasure create an inviting climate for self-renewal.
We learn the importance of being an open system that is able to be creative and adaptable to life and its changes.
