5Rhythms is the place where I feel safe to be myself, where I feel understood and loved for who I am. Moving without words creates real communication from the heart and I value that so much. As a child, I was "dyslexic" and stammered my way through speaking up, I found it easier to communicated with animals than people. I danced and rode horses as a teen ,and found peace in movement and nature. Living in London and visiting Ibiza's massive outdoor dancing arenas in my 20s and 30s, I loved the acceptance and fellowship of the rave dance-floor, where I could dance my heart out and be received. Now in my 50s I dance in the woods and fields, with my horses and dogs, and with my two daughters. Yoga, which I have been teaching for 15 years, supports my 5Rhythms practice and has given me a bedrock from which to rise to the opportunity of becoming a 5Rhythms teacher one day.
