Daniela Peltekova & Michelle Chua invite you to
Let go of the old and welcome the new with an afternoon of liberating movement, sourcing the infinite wisdom of our body-minds.
In this 4-hour mini-retreat we begin with guided yoga postures and breath work to awaken the body awareness of our habitual stuck-ness and fear. We then dive in facilitated freeform dance through the 5Rhythms® map to instigate full release and transform tensions into clarity and inspiration. We end with cool-down and restorative yoga for deeper integration, closing with community circle and journaling for reflective discussion.
Combining the benefits of yoga and 5Rhythms® dynamic dance meditation offers a unique blend for deeper witnessing and releasing of thought and emotional patterns, which no longer serve us.
All levels are welcome. Come ready to move, sweat away tension and clear the path—mentally, physically and spiritually-- for the New Year. Please bring a yoga mat - all other props are provided.

About The 5Rhythms®
Dancing the 5Rhythms® brings stress release and re-connection with a calmer, more integrated way of being. It helps break the cycle of obsessive thoughts and aligns body, mind, emotions, soul and spirit. The physical movement frees the body from toxins and stimulates the brain. Moving through the trajectory of the 5Rhythms® in a free-form dance style creates openings for emotional release and allows new perspectives and creativity to emerge. There are no right or wrong moves, no choreography to follow. Curiosity and willingness to move are all that is required. The rest is up to the dance.
Invisible threads are the strongest ties. —FriedrichNietzsche
"What are the invisible threads that connect you inthis life?" Davida Taurek asks. "In this workshop, we will use themap of the 5Rhythms to explore the connections we want most. By fostering theintimate union of breath and movement, we follow a path that leads us out ofisolation and into connection. Connections is an invitation to cultivaterelationships in all forms: self, partner, tribe, and community. At times thesemysterious threads need to be tended to, cut, or reinforced. The practicebrings us the skills we need to navigate the terrain of life.
"The 5Rhythms is a moving meditation practice. Therhythms, Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness, allow us to explorethe true nature of who we are and how our energy moves in this world."REGISTER TODAY!
