It sounds cliché but it's so very true; from my very first class I knew I was home and that 5Rhythms was what I'd been looking for, for all of my life.
I was numb from the head down before I started dancing the 5Rhythms. Growing up as a child I learnt that my body was something to be ashamed of, to be covered up, and that dance was seen as provocative. For the first 6 months I cried nearly every time I danced the 5Rhythms; tears of joy, sadness, sorrow, anger, grief - all that was locked away in my body that had not been allowed to be expressed previously.
5Rhythms has empowered me and has given me the freedom to challenge and reverse these beliefs, to open my mind and body up to conscious movement and a more authentic way of being present, to give myself permission to be whatever it is that I need to be in the moment… And so begins a lifelong journey of healing and self development.
I cannot imagine a life without 5Rhythms now, it keeps me sane and I am so grateful to be on this beautiful dancing path and to be able to offer it to others.
