5Rhythms® is a holistic movement meditation practice. It is a path to presence, wholeness, and authentic being. The Wave forms the foundation of this practice. It is comprised of five different rhythms, which are a roadmap into exploring our creativity and physical movement. No previous experience necessary. 5Rhythms is suitable for everyone and bodies of all ages, shapes, and sizes.

Physical limitations are not a hindrance to the dance: you can dance on a chair or on the floor and discover your own style of dancing, even with a physical limitation. 5Rhythms accommodates all levels of physical ability. However do please get in touch with me before hand if you have a major physical limitation.
Mental health: dance and movement are very beneficial for our mental and emotional well-being. If you are or you have recently had a severe or acute mental health issue (e.g. schizophrenia), please read the FAQ in the customer service page and contact me before coming to an open class, so we can ensure a positive experience for all.
The last option is: if you can’t come yourself, you can name someone as your replacement at no additional cost. You must do this by 9 am on the day of the class. We will not accept changes or cancellations after this time. You must find the replacement person and sort out the money between you.
