My home Rhythm is Stillness. I first experienced 5Rhythms in a Sausalito ‘Sweat’ 12 years ago. Having lived many years in the Osho Commune it looked to me like a colourful madhouse of sweating bodies that felt immediately like home.
The best way for me to get to the heart of my dance is to keep softening and including whatever is arising in my experience, and breathe with it. To say ‘yes’ and include everything; my doubts, the stiffness in my low back, the determination in my jaw, the tiny rushes of self love… and finally, moving in a groove of fluid acceptance. All of it.
I’ve been teaching the 5Rhythms for 5 years now and wow.. that went by fast! At the time I signed on I had no idea how much the practice of teaching would work on me.
We’re moving into summer now and I’m looking forward to being able to take some classes out onto the beach again with the ‘5Rhythms Meets Silent Disco’ sessions. People really love dancing in the open air, by the edge of the water, moving into Stillness as the evening descends and the stars appear! The headphones lend an intimate feel to the journey.
