Created by Gabrielle Roth, the 5Rhythms® is a conscious dance practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. The 5Rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. These Rhythms are a moving map to ecstasy that, when practiced, allow us to get grounded in our bodies, express our hearts and clear our minds. In essence it is a dynamic moving meditation that nourishes mind, body and spirit!

What to expect in a class:

● The 5Rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. These rhythms come together to create a Wave, which take shape in the form of music. There are 2 Waves in each class.
● The first Wave is a warm up, about 45 minutes, during which you are encouraged to let go of your day and drop into your body. The music is designed to help you warm up slowly in Flowing and Staccato. In Chaos, we reach a peak, then in Lyrical and Stillness we mindfully settle down.
● In between Waves, Sayrah introduces a theme, which we explore individually, in partnership and in groups.
● You are ALWAYS at choice and should not do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.
● NO TALKING on the dance floor and please keep our space drug and alcohol free. No street shoes.
