A guided warm-up and approximately 1 hour 15 minutes of dancing, followed by a closing circle.
Bring your heart, your feet, your body, your mind and set them all free on the dance floor. You are invited to come and move your body in the ways your body most wants to move, inspired by music with different rhythms such as Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. No experience is necessary. This moving meditation practice can ultimately help us become more aligned in our thoughts, feelings and actions and become more attuned to the present moment.
Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion, it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego's hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-waling, rock star part of ourselves that years to be free.
Elisa is passionate about bringing 5Rhythms® to people who crave and want more movement and self-expression in their everyday lives. She has been dancing since the age of 5, dipping her toes into as many movement practices as she could find (ballet, contemporary, hula hoop, yoga, ecstatic dance) and now the 5Rhythms since 2002. She is the founder of Create-Move-Connect, performer and teacher with Truly Connecting Playback Theatre, researcher and community organizer. All class hours with Elisa count towards 5Rhythms® Teacher Training prerequisites.Contact elisa.hollenberg@
