Module 6: Working with Clients & Students
Prerequisite Module 1
- Focus – Teaching Continuum to individuals
- Students learn the practical implementation of a somatic practice and how to apply Continuum concepts in a one-to-one situation.
- One learns to see how actual physical challenges and restrictions that might arise in breathing and other physical activities in daily life can impact one’s emotional and physical wellbeing.
- Through aspects of Continuum’s embodiment and facilitation of movement, breath, and sound, students will learn distinctions between active and passive movement that help to bring clients to various depths and states of awareness.
- Conscious awareness and empathy are developed through movement and observation methods, growing the capacity to sense into one’s own and others’ bio-systems. This helps develop an awareness of an inner bio-intelligence.
- Open Attention, a state of non-judgmental awareness, is emphasized.
- Wave motion is encouraged through movement in the fluids and tissues to allow fixations and structures to release.
- Continuum’s gentle, non-invasive approach to movement promotes a philosophy of cooperation and respect in all of our interactions.
- Ethics of touch are addressed, regarding how and when to use touch in an ethical and therapeutic manner, including appropriate boundaries, respect, listening, and informed consent of touch. Emphasis will be placed on experiential activities and safety.
Practicum– Students will present a private class/session geared toward an individual and receive feedback first from peers and then teachers.
