The 5Rhythms ® are an inspired movement practice that frees the body, balances the psyche, opens up the heart and clears a path for spirit. At times it is exhilarating and fun… at other times the dances go deep and still… and all places in between. Together, the rhythms form WAVES of all of these unique patterns, dances, exercises, and ritual moments, into a field of unity. In moving your body through the 5Rhythms ® you have the potential to connect to your innermost self. If you’re willing to surrender to the movement and the moment, this practice will have a profound effect on how you move your body, feel in your own skin and relate to yourself and others. Movement as a spiritual practice is a path to presence – losing the dancer and becoming the dance. Part 2, 5R’s Workshop will focus on the Wave Form in our daily lives.
We’ll create a personal template/mandala to inspire us to maintain our balance point between discipline and freedom. Please bring a journal and a snack.

“The 5Rhythms ® are states of Being, they are a map to everywhere you want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to the real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.” – Gabrielle Roth
