This is an introductory 5Rhythms class, exploring our power and essence through the natural elements. It's a moving meditation from solid Earth through the heart, to the invisible Ether. We start our journey walking softly on Earth, digging deeper into our inner power, searching for Fire, expressing our internal flaming energy to be ready to surrender to the powerful waves of Water, letting go and releasing. To enjoy the fresh Air and the communal celebration of renewed lightness. To arrive and dissolve in Ether, in the invisible, in the emptiness, in unity, in Stillness. Join us in this travel through space, time and feelings, dancing freeform the 5Rhythms and the Elements. We dance to search, to remember, to feel, to discover, to transform.
Dancing the 5Rhythms is a practice—a dynamic way to both workout and to meditate in the same breath. They teach us that life is energy in motion, freeing us from any fixed notions about people, places, objects or ideas. They initiate us back into the wisdom of our bodies and unleash movement’s dynamic healing power. In dancing 5Rhythms the body becomes our spiritual path. No experience or special skills necessary, no steps to learn or choreography, everyone is welcome.
Bring your curiosity and open mind, friends, water bottle, and a blanket. We'll bring our music and our enthusiasm to inspire you to create your own unique dance and to be all together in a safe and beautiful garden meadow.
