Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement practice. This is a meditation… a medicine… designed to release the dancer thats lives inside us all. Regardless of size, shape, age, race, religion, limitations or experience… everyone is welcome. To find our dance is to plug ourselves directly back into our most deliciously fluid and creatively free selves. Thus freeing up the source of inspiration where we have boundless potential and possibilities.
The 5Rhythms® are states of being. They offer us a journey through different landscapes that inform, inspire, reveal and shape us. We inquire into the movement vocabulary of each rhythm and how they naturally occur through our bodies and in our relationship with every day life.
We connect with our body; our physical energy, skin, bones, breath and roots. We create the conditions for being more available to deepen our connection with ourselves, our relationship to others and with our sense of belonging to a greater tribe or community.
We work out not only the physical body but the soul. The dance floor offers us the space for deep exploration of embodied presence through movement as a healing art and spiritual practice. When we put the psyche in motion it will heal itself.
“Energy moves in waves.
Waves move in patterns.
Patterns move in rhythms.
A human being is just that…
energy, waves, patterns, rhythms….
Nothing more. Nothing less.
A dance.” ~Gabrielle Roth
