I’m excited and honored to team up with Rebecca Amis Lawson this fall. She will offer an Intro to Continuum class here at Spira and I hope you movement explorers will be able to join her. She brings years of expertise in her studies of dance, Pilates, movement therapy, somatics, and psychology.


Support your Pilates and Gyrotonic Practice
Come unwind your patterns and sense/feel more of YOU!
Tuesdays: October 3, 10, 17 and 24
3:30p – 5p

Gyrotonic and Pilates already promote wholistic, fluid strength with adaptability and extended range of motion in space. Continuum helps prepare and open the body’s tissue through the vitalizing of our fluid systems, assisting in cohesive and varietal movement expression in a 360 dynamic range.

You can’t change a pattern if you aren’t aware of the pattern. You can’t be aware of the pattern if you can’t feel. You can’t feel if you are compressed or bound in your body tissues.

Take a step into opening, listening, and shape shifting body patterns, via sound, breath and movement explorations.

Rebecca Amis Lawson, a registered dance movement therapist, and continuum teacher has been whole-heartedly involved in dance, psychology, and somatics for the last 37 years. Rebecca professionally danced, taught and choreographed for 25 years. She has extensive training in alignment, ideokinesiology, effort/shape analysis, authentic movement, yoga, pilates, connective tissue massage and improvisational movement. She is currently a Continuum teacher and a somatic practitioner.

No matter how organized or chilled out I TRY to be, the crescendo of the end of the year…Continue Reading
