Never in my 25 years of dancing have I experienced the power of 5Rhythms so deeply as I did this year.
Yes, dancing with Gabrielle was like time travel and super magical and changed my whole life.
But this year, more than ever, 5Rhythms proved itself as a practical life elixir for many. Even for people who don’t really have anything to do with dancing.TAGS: 5Rhythms, 5Rhythms Teachers Association, 5RTA, Jup Jansonius, katya verbugg
Looking back, I see that I was engaged in an important struggle. My autonomy was vital – the space to be as I am, self-directed and free to express and dance in my own way. Belonging was vital – needing the nourishment of a tribe – and wanting to explore what happens when we are who we are together. Surrendering to the dynamic flow between these needs was my struggle.TAGS: 5Rhythms, 5Rhythms tribe, 5RTA, catherine llewynn, gabrielle roth, Heartbeat, Ikaria, Jup Jansonius, movement medicine, netherlands, one dance tribe, Open floor, soul motion, susannah darling, The Moving Center, yaakov darling
I had been struggling for a long time with anorexia. The disease not only affected my body but it also deeply hurt my soul and my spirit. I longed to vanish from this world for so many years. I was stuck in a vicious circle and didn’t know how to escape from it.TAGS: 5Rhythms, 5Rhythms Teachers Association, Anorexia, belgium, Jup Jansonius, Katya Verbugghe, meditation, movement medicine, netherlands, Open floor, Sexual Grounding, soul motion
