Magic of 5Rhythms
Dance is a therapeutic form of exercise which is great not only for physical health but also mental and emotional well-being. Music itself can be very powerful. Just hearing a song from our childhood can create a sensation in our entire bodies that can instantly affect our mood and trigger memories. When dance or any movement is set to music it can create a stress relieving, joyful and healing moment.
During 5Rhythms dance practice you learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects you to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things. Within the group context dance creates connection and community and hone the instincts and intuitions. Every culture, religion, race, gender, age and sexual preference are welcome.
5Rhythms transcends dance. The movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor.
Each rhythm is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprising and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative. It is, in essence, “exercise for the right brain.”
Benefits of the 5Rhythms moving meditation over time:
Feeling radiantly alive and calm at the same time.
Moving from thinking about life to intimately feeling life with bones, feet, muscles, blood.
Enjoy the miraculous bodies we have rather than lamenting their limitations.
The tight spots in your heart soften until without hesitation jump when you are joyful, reach out when you are touched.
Mind settles, and the world of thinking and planning fades into a sense of peaceful silence.
