5Rhythms 'Waves' Class, Monday Evenings, Canterbury.
Devised by Gabrielle Roth, and now practiced by tens of thousands of people worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a therapeutic dynamic movement meditation practice.
Whether you already love dancing or fear that you cannot or will not be able to dance at all you will be welcome in this class. There are no steps to follow, instead 5Rhythms® offers a gentle way for us to become curious about these amazing bodies of ours: bodies that we so often take for granted - these hands, that do so much work for us, these feet that carry us from place to place, these hips that hold so much creative and juicy energy and yet which so often also hold much shame. Moving through the Rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness, we find ways to become curious and fascinated about our bodies: as we move into and through the tension and stories that they hold we will become amazed at what they can do, and surprised at the creative energy, beauty and wisdom that they can reveal to us. In a 5Rhythms® Class you are not expected to get it right, rather you are invited to come with where you are at; to move into and through the many shades of yourself so that your dance becomes an offering and an opening into the stillness and mystery of life. Together we create moving meditation. Together we have fun, get sweaty, have a great cardio workout and ultimately discover more about who we are. No prior experience necessary. No need to pre-book, just show up. All classes are alcohol and drug free events. Wear loose fitting clothes, dance bare foot and bring some water to drink.
