ONLINE ~ Dancing with the Elements

Roberts Creek - 26 Feb 2021 to 26 Mar 2021
Julie Plotkin

This workshop series is an invitation to explore the relationship between our physical movement and our physical environment. The five elements of earth, fire, water, air and ether are within us and around us. Our bodies are comprised of these elements, and they are reflected in all aspects of our environment. 

How do these elements inform our movement? How do we respond and react to the elements in our daily lives? Using the map of the 5Rhythms ~ Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness ~ we will investigate how we interact with and integrate the 5 elements into our moving center, thus deepening our awareness of our connection to the elements.

This workshop series is for you if you:

•Love to explore conscious embodied movement

•Yearn for deeper connections with others 

•Have a curiosity and desire to explore the relationship between movement and elements


ONLINE: Cultivating JOY

Vancouver - 6 Mar 2021 to 6 Mar 2021
Bettina Rothe

 Cultivating JOY

A 5Rhythms® Dance & Embodiment Event

March 6, 2021

10 AM – 1 PM PST

Online on Zoom

“Joy is not in things; it is in us.”

— Richard Wagner


Supported — $ 30

Regular — $ 45

Pay-It-Forward — $ 60 (helps support another participant to join)

How do we embody more JOY? How can we access JOY when life feels irritating, overwhelming or unpleasant?

JOY is a quality we can grow, a skill that can be learned. It is available to us when we are present in the here and now. Can we allow moments of JOY to come into our awareness and offer our bodies and hearts to it?

In this event, we will use the catalytic movement practice of 5Rhythms® dance to clear what gets in the way of joy and create more space internally for joy to blossom.

Through embodiment and meditation practices, we will uncover what may be involuntarily contributing to irritation, anxiety or depression, and learn how to consciously shift our state of being.

Come and join me in this dance that might just uplift you and make your spirit smile!
