Elaine Colandrea and Megan Bathory-Peeler leading a breathing exercise outdoors

Reclaim the power and pleasure of conscious breathing through the somatic practice of Continuum, led by Megan Bathory-Peeler and Elaine Colandrea.

Elaine Colandrea leads a simple breath practice to release jaw tension, reduce discomfort in the head and neck, and unlock the diaphragm.

Reclaim the pleasure of breathing. Breathing is central to being at ease in relationship with our bodies, ourselves, and the world around us. Continuum gives us elegantly simple and relevant tools that engage the transformative nature of breathing while exploring fluid movement.

All breath-stopping patterns—whether screen apnea, news apnea, or sleep apnea—are eventually paralyzing. Continuum dissolves internal restrictions, providing ease and comfort in our bodies with cleansing movement practices. Conscious breathing restores equilibrium, without having to understand or fix what is wrong.

Collective engagement grows while practicing and exploring in our workshop sessions together. Our creative exchanges will generate benefits that extend far beyond the workshop. This retreat is for those who wish to sustain themselves in a fluid state of wholeness, well-being, spontaneity, and joy.

Elaine Colandrea and Megan Bathory-Peeler are joined by additional Continuum teachers.

Please note: Teachers and schedule are subject to change.
