Somatic Attunement: A weekend retreat for Practitioners in the Healing Arts with Maria Moser and Penny Allport
"It makes a wonderful difference whether we find in the body an ally or an adversary." -Goethe
All movement classes and workshops with Penny call on the wisdom of Yoga as an inquiry based practice. Almost two decades of experience in Continuum Movement and Continuum Montage (Susan Harper) offer the unique exploration into movement “as something we are, not just something we do.” (Emilie Conrad.) Ongoing studies with Caryn McHose and Kevin Frank, authors of "How Life Moves, Explorations in Meaning & Body Awareness" inspire and inform. Perceptual practices influence and engage the body of perception, where infinite potential awaits.

Deepening Into Light: An Immersion in Continuum Movement and Creative Process, with Doris Maranda and Penny Allport.
Through the resources and processes of Continuum Movement, perceptual inquiry and ritual space, join us for a shared time of moving, creating and being in the embrace of nature, silence, and others who are called to deepen into an embodied sense of lightness at this potent time of the year.
A container is offered to serve a collective field of movement inquiry, and to nourish into fruition, the buds of what is gestating in the deep well of our being. Extended silence offers time to slow down, engage in natural rhythms, both inner and outer, and to allow movement and meaning to unfold.
This workshop offers an introduction, or expansion of interest, in inquiry-based movement practice. We draw on the medicine of Continuum Movement, perceptual practices, and our evolutionary movement lineage (single cell to a species inclusive anatomy, drawn from the unfolding mystery of life on earth).
“We began as mineral
~ Rumi (translated by Coleman Barks)
Somatic Attunement a weekend retreat for Practitioners in the Healing Arts, with Mariah Moser & Penny Allport
Land with us in Paradise Found for a weekend of
somatic attunement. This workshop brings into
harmony deep inquiry-based embodied explorations
with the neurobiology of presence and attunement.
This two-day class explores the origins of movement, through the embodied imagination of various stages of evolution. The body as nature, cosmological wonder, ally and guide are directly experienced. We draw on the cycles of nature, the elements as living activities, and the shapes and gestures of life’s continuum.
Theme: Liberating the Fish Body
Liberating the "fish body" can serve to liberate spinal movement, over habituated in daily life to our human upright posture. We can find renewed sense of pleasure and release unnecessary effort through playfully exploring this evolutionary movement. In breath, embodied imagination, playful inquiry and discovery we can liberate the fish body and recover grace and ease in movement, the body and life!!
$150.00 (Bring a friend and two come for $135.00 each)
Inquiry based means we are all explorers meeting in a field of curiosity and wonder, listening deeply to the intrinsic intelligence of life moving through us in the present moment. There is a safe container, and an offering of seeds and shapes of expressions of moving life drawn from the intelligence of the living earth and the body's elemental and creature ancestry. We experience intrinsic strength, the relaxation of effort and the mutability of form. Old habits fall away as life is allowed to move in the river of conscious embodiment.
$21.00 per class
Ongoing alternating Thursday mornings 9:30 - Noon
No classes in Summer.
Call to inquire re: space.
