East and West Coast come together in San Diego offering a unique opportunity to dance with 4 5Rhythms® teachers in one weekend. Coevolution occurs when two species influence one another in a mutually beneficial relationship. Bees are nourished from nectar while flowers benefit from pollination. We too are influenced by the multitude of interactions in our environment. These influencing interactions can help us evolve and strengthen or drain us of energy if we are not present and aware. Rather than give our power away, we have the opportunity to feed off a different flower when needed.
In this workshop, 4 teachers from New York and California join together to take you on a 5Rhythms® exploration where we listen deeply to the messages received; unfolding, transforming, expanding and coevolving together. Join us as we dance into the natural process of evolution on a community level.
***Dance studio is close to the airport, hotels, restaurants and beaches making this an easeful travel journey.
