Location: Natha yoga, Celsiusgatan 29
Organizer: Louise Hall
Friday: Open evening with the 5 Rhythms. We dance a wave. Saturday: Join us for 5Rhythms Workshop with the theme Effortlessness and a warrior body. Being able to be intentional, but without pushing and forcing. Embodying agility to be able to meet each moment. A sort of PLAYFULNESS in whatever comes your way. Like a samurai warrior moving with each blow and attack with light feet, yet grounded, unfaced, EFFORTLESSLY, standing her/his ground and ready to move direction at any time. We practice this effortless warrior way of moving in our dance, with the 5Rhythms and BERIT HAGUE as our guides, we notice what comes up and we get curious about what awakens within us. Resistance, clinging, pushing, forcing or maybe allowing, effortlessness and grace.If denying the present moment, we cannot move with it, we get caught up in it or we miss it. Like our warrior, if caught up in denying blows and attacks, pretending that they are not coming, he gets stricken down again and again. If he is expecting them to come at all times he is exhausted by the worry, and unable to move when he has to. It is the same for us. If we deny the present moment, by ignoring it or worrying what will come, we become unable to move with whatever is there for us, instead we numb feelings we don’t want to feel, the things is, we cannot choose what we numb, if we numb one feeling, we numb everything. In the dance, we can practice this warrior body in our dance, we can cultivate agility, present awareness, allowing and at some point, it all becomes EFFORTLESS. We are able to meet everything that comes with a gentle curiosity even when don’t like it.
