DEVELOPMENTAL MOVEMENT & BODY SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT (50 hours)
- Focus- Embryological implications, Pre and Perinatal imprints on the body
Basics of our early and ongoing potential, as well as our limiting historical imprints, are addressed in class through a lens of biological processes including cellular/embryological development, and the epigenetic or contextual influences that impact our growth and evolution. Students further learn the fluid system’s importance and recognize its primordial/ancestral/cosmic role in healing, movement and fundamental wisdom. Emilie Conrad stated that “we moderns, now separated from the ongoing living process of our planet, hunger to remember our true origins.” Students learn how embodiment of Continuum principles provides an opening to the deepest and most satisfying nourishment. Able to release restrictive imprints and access our early potential, with experiences that include such aspects as embodying our embryological midline, we are relieved from our linear mechanical existences and from our hardened beliefs and limitations. Illness, aging and deterioration take on new possibilities when the experience of “body” is expanded and sustained by this inherent undulating wisdom.
Practicum- Students will present a class and receive feedback first from peers and then teachers.
