"Listen to the sounds of waves within you"
Deep down every cell vibrates with a gentle presence. When we’re in tune with this pulse we can move and act with ease and vitality. Too often however our attention goes to the demands of the outside world and we lose touch with this nourishing life force. This misbalance between being and doing can leave us exhausted. In this weekend workshop we’ll work on restoring this balance. We’ll dive in deep to find the simple presence of our cells. The 5Rhythms will be our roadmap on that journey. Each rhythm provides a specific key in understanding and unlocking the vital forces in our life. We also look at how we can sustain a sense of vitality while dealing with challenges.
The 5Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice where we both meditate and rock our bodies in the same breath. It has 5 phases or rhythms that take dancers on a journey of tuning in (flowing), expressing (staccato), surrendering (chaos), expanding (lyrical) and being (stillness). Anyone, regardless of age or physical condition, can dance the 5Rhythms. You only need a body that breathes, a heart that beats and a willingness to be curious.
Let the 5 Rhythms take you to the heart of the matter.
