The Elemental Body: An Introduction to Continuum somatics
Continuum is a practice for body, breath and voice. It is part of a family of movement practices known as somatics. Somatic movement practices are opportunities to slow down, feel how your body wants to move, and improvise or find new movement possibilities within you. You may come to a somatic class with a desire to relax and unwind tension in your body and your mind. You might find that a Continuum class is like a moving meditation or a self-powered bodywork session. In Continuum, we explore the fluid nature of our bodies. Fluids are permeating and moving through every part of us. The pathways of movement in a Continuum class are often spirals and waves. In this way, the practice can feel like very gentle dancing. Along with movement, we use our voices to produce subtle sounds. Sound waves create movement within fluids and can help us to make contact with places inside our bodies. This afternoon will begin with a reading from The Elemental Body: A Movement Guide to Kinship with Ourselves and the Natural World, which Rori co-authored in 2022 with Elaine Colandrea. A Continuum class will follow. Light refreshments provided. Please dress comfortably and bring your own mat or blanket. Rori hopes to continue offering Continuum at Lulu’s Barn on a monthly or weekly basis. About Rori: Rori lives in Alna. She is a doctoral candidate at University of Maine, writing a dissertation on Continuum. Rori is a member of the Continuum Teachers Association and a certified Pilates instructor. She holds a Master of Fine Arts in Dance from Temple University.
