5 Rhythms® dance
The practice of 5Rhythms dancing, often described as moving meditation, was created in the late 1960s by Gabrielle Roth, who distinguished five rhythms common to all humans. When she combined these rhythms together in a wave as a natural progression of energy, Gabrielle discovered they can liberate the free creative spirit inside each of us, regardless of our age, size or physical ability. There are no steps to follow, no choreography to learn, no way to do it wrong.
In this movement practice you meet all different aspects of life. There is room to move your fear, anger, sadness, joy and love. You can experience ecstasy and also find a deep stillness. Sometimes you feel part of the whole and sometime you are dancing with your attention totally internal. It is your unique dance in this moment. You are invited to become more and more aware of what is happening in this moment.
This movement practice brings you closer to yourself, through helping you to come fully into your body. It is an exercise in staying fluid (breathing and moving) with what is. It is an invitation to constantly ground and centre and to bring what is within into movement.
