" Do you have the discipline to be a free spirit " - Gabrielle Roth
Come be moved through Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms Waves map - a dynamic movement practice in Southampton. The 5Rhythms- flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness. This is where ecstatic dance and meditation meets the dance floor. There are no steps to learn, no right our wrong moves to master. No experience is needed. The class is guided.
It is a great way to let ourselves move, with whatever is needing to move. We hold a lot in our bodies, whether we realise it or not: stress, anxiety, different emotions. When we move our bodies, we release, what needs to move, letting some of those layers dissolve go, that no longer serve us.
We are fortunate to be guided and taught by two wonderful teachers throughout the year - Ruth Hirst and James Hogan. Both are experienced teachers and travel from London and Surrey to be with us. Ruth and James, are teaching alternate months.
Every body is welcome
This is a family and child-friendly class. Bring loose comfortable clothes and a reusable water bottle.
Most people dance bare footed however if you want to wear socks and shoes, that's totally fine. You do you!
This is a form of moving meditation practice and once started the attendees are in a process/journey and words are not spoken. Doors will close at 4:30pm. Life happens and if you find yourself needing to be late, please communicate this with us so we make sure you can still join us.

We're started at 5rhythms Southampton 2024 and what a yummy start, that was as James Hogan and myself, Ruth Hirst, weaved in our teaching together in January.
Moving forward in 2024, the classes happen on the second Saturday of each month. Save the dates.
James Hogan and myself, Ruth Hirst, will each take it in turn to come and teach @ 5Rhythms Southampton.
Looking forward to where 5Rhythms Southampton goes in 2024.
See you on the dance floor on February 10th.
Loving dancing feet ❤️👣🎶 Ruth, James and the 5Rhythms Southampton team, Angharad and Damian.
