Give yourself a kiss. If you want to hold the beautiful one, hold yourself – RUMI
Touching those kisses we blow across the fingers airborne with Love.
Opening to our sensuality, receptive to kisses blown our way by life.
Leaning into the spine of sultry curves, the key to the door of our heart slowly opens
… To the wilderness that is waiting
… Slinky, soft, sensual, seductive embrace of our being
…. Light, weightless, shimmering hues of our dreaming
Speaking from the body in seeking and following the unfolding.
Following the heart towards the whispers uttered in secret
Feet first we fall into caress.
Kissing all that we know and all the mystery beyond.
Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground – RUMI

A Little Something about us:
The 5Rhythms came into Emma’s world of theatre, visual arts and social justice work over 30 years ago.
Teaching since 2001 her particular flavour is rich with the tapestry woven of “street wise’ and humour, weaving in the edges of the artistic meets’ real life.’
Recognizing the extraordinary power of the practice to heal and to transform lives, Emma pioneered its use in prisons, refugee camps, addiction recovery clinics in Harley Street to the slums of Kolkata.
Emma is now one of the most skilled and experienced 5 Rhythms instructors in the world.
Lina Nahhas, a Palestinian-Canadian based in Dubai, was one of the first in bringing 5Rhythms® to the Arab region in 2010, and her passion for the work has led her to Waves® level teacher certification by 2014, weaving teaching into her life whilst running her social innovation empathy-building work via The Sameness project. Her teenage daughter, Jood, keeps the flame for her passions alive (and also keeps her on her toes and her ego in check by being her uncompromising mirror!)
“The impact that the 5Rhythms® has had in my life, remains magical. One of sentences that gets repeated constantly by those who attend a 5Rhythms® class for the first time is “I feel so free to be me”. And it remains so for me each time, no matter what “me” looks and feels like in the moment of that day! Invoking deeper presence, the 5Rhythms helps my soul inhabit its freedom and lightness in alignment with body, heart and mind with spirit, to savour life more fully and experience ease, by simply tuning in to the natural movement of my body and that of the cosmic dance holding it all. And in my continuing journey with the 5Rhythms®, I wish to offer others an opening to this energy which nourishes true freedom and reclaims our humanity.
