Continuum - A Moving Inquiry Training Program



Continuum - A Moving Inquiry Training Program

200h / 8 Modules  / 8 Continuum Teachers


"Our freedom to invoke the surge of our own bio-intelligence pouring welcomingly through our veins and arousing us from cultural slumber is truly a gift from the mysterious unknown. We hope that you will join us in this magnificent emergence."



_ Emilie Conrad, Continuum Founder


What is Continuum?

Continuum is a somatic approach through which we can inquire and learn to tune into our bodies as living events, as an ongoing orchestration of communication and resonance, as creative intelligence operating in every cell.

We can experience that we are movement and that the movement we are can inform the movement we do. We can also experience direct sensory contact with an all-pervasive regulatory dynamic.

To do so, we use breath, sound, subtly dynamic movement stimulation and a receptive, sensory state of attention. This allows us to notice movement impulses that arise from within. By consciously allowing these movements, we support complex, self-regulatory processes that are often accompanied by mental and emotional clarity, a sense of nourishment, connection and safety often described as "coming home". We shift our conventional, rational orientation from linear thinking to a more multi-directional embodied state of body-mind thinking, that can feel pleasurable and connect us to more wholeness and wisdom.

It can improve our sense of connection, range of mobility and general sense of wellbeing. Trust, contentment, joy and new perspectives emerge from within.


Furthermore, Continuum can support our ability:

  • to be empathic and relational
  • to be clear and decisive

  • to orient and adapt
  • to be vital and persevering

  • to self-regulate and harmonize

  • to be autonomous and team-minded

  • to act from the awareness of dynamic context

  • to process and reflect 

  • to be resilient 

Touching the history of Continuum to inquire into its future

This program - taught by 8 teachers -  integrates various decades of Continuum material. All teachers studied with Emilie Conrad who originated Continuum in the 1960’s and developed it until her death in 2014.

Emilie Conrad taught in a constant state of inquiry and teach. While each step embedded and enfolded the previous one, it also meant students entering the work in the 80’s were exposed to different material than students entering it in the 2000’s. This program attempts to bring together various Continuum „periods“ by bringing together teachers who were introduced to the work at different times.

Also, the very nature of Continuum is to witness ourselves as a living process, open to the ongoing evolution of teachings and applications. Even though we follow basic core principles, Continuum remains an ongoing, unfolding inquiry into the mystery of conscious human life. Through the variety of teachers in this program, we hope to encourage students to trust their own inquiry, somatic movement research and to develop their own teaching style.


For whom is this program?



This program is for lay people, somatic professionals, therapists, teachers, creatives, leaders, innovators - anyone who has a body - anyone who wants to connect more deeply to what it means to be human living wholesomely in a phyisical body.
