As little ones in the womb our very first body movements bring information to our developing nervous system, supporting sensory nerve pathways in finding their way. Movement gives us a sense of where our bodies are in space. We discover out limbs, our fingers, thumbs, tongues, skin and sensations of touch as we come into contact with the fluids around us, the placenta and walls of the womb. This profound sensory-somatic learning can continue to support our awareness and health as adults.
In this 3-hour webinar class, we learn about early fetal movement and explore similar motion and sensation in our adult bodies. The potential of this exploration is increased awareness of our bodies, augmented energy and sensation, and enhanced sense of joy and well-being in living in these bodies.
Please note: Before watching, please set up a womb/nest for yourself where you can feel comfortable lying down, mostly on your back for extended periods of time and can also see and hear the screen. You can do Continuum on a yoga mat, blanket, sheep skin, etc. or on your bed. It is best if you can have private quiet time to explore so please let family or others in your home know that you need this time to be quiet. Then look forward to this very nurturing time of gentle fluid movement breath sound exploration.
