5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement practice created by Gabrielle Roth, who has inspired thousands of people to MOVE; 'put the psyche into motion and it will heal itself'.
Anyone can dance the 5Rhythms®, it just requires a beating heart and a willingness to move.
The 5Rhythms® are:
Allowing our body to receive and move with continuous fluid movement, creating circles and spirals. Through our feet or moving on the floor, we connect to the earth and bring our awareness fully into the body.
We let the beat move the body, creating clear, defined shapes. Staccato allows us to practice clarity, boundaries and expression.
The rhythm reaches its peak as we let our bodies surrender, release and let go of the mind's hold over the body. We explore our edges to the point where time and space dissolve.
The place we land after we've danced ourselves empty from chaos. Lightening up and spreading our wings, we soar through space. We let go of letting go , and open our hearts to the moment.
Dissolving from one shape into another, full breath and fully embodied - we've arrived home, complete, and moving from our still centres.
I hope you'll join us for this moving mediation. I'm looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor.
A refillable bottle of water;
We dance barefoot or with indoor dance shoes only, no outdoor shoes;
A willingness to move and to be curious.
