It sounds cliché but I knew I'd found home from my very first class and that 5Rhythms was what I'd been searching for my whole life.
Before 5Rhythms I had tried numerous dance styles, but none came as close to allowing me to express what had been locked away in my body and mind as fully and as freely as 5Rhythms.
Here was a dance practice that made it painfully obvious to me that I had been walking around completely numb from the head down, disembodied. For the first 6 months, I cried nearly every time I danced the 5Rhythms; tears of joy, sadness, anger, grief, self-compassion - and it felt so liberating to let these tears flow without fear of being judged, shamed, ridiculed, disowned. I was meeting all the different parts of myself in the dance for the first time and WOW what an experience that was - what an honour, in fact, to be reunited with myself through the practice of the 5Rhythms.
And I've been hooked ever since!
I cannot imagine a life without 5Rhythms now. It keeps me sane in an insane world, it keeps me connected to myself, to others, to the divine. Each time I dance I know a little more of me is opening and softening to a more conscious and authentic way of being present in the world. It's a powerful form of activism in a world that values the opposite.
I look forward to welcoming you to this incredible practice <3
