What You’ll Get
Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself.
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.” When we practice 5Rhythms, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects us to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things.
5Rhythms transcends dance. The movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay masks down, and dance till we disappear…Only to rediscover ourselves through it all.
This is a 3hrs mini workshop that we will together explore the basic fundamentals of the 5Rhythms in this structure of Flowing; Staccato; Chaos; Lyrical; Stillness that forms the Waves map.
~To understand better these rhythms and the elements that are inherent in us as well as in the nature, through moving our physical body connecting within our inner truth of what’s happening in the moment and allowing it space to expressing it out in our dance.
~We will use the gateways for each rhythm to help us to loosen up the body by working through different parts of our body.
~This is a free-styled dance where there are no steps to follow, but a dance that is awaiting for you to create your very own unique expressions connecting you to your mind, body and spirit.
~Please come with an open heart, willingness and curiosity to understand why dance is the medicine to your healing of well being.
Any additional notes:
Energy moves in waves.
Waves move in patterns.
Patterns move in rhythms.
A human being is just that
energy, waves, patterns, rhythms.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
A dance. ~ Gabrielle Roth ~
I am not much of a dancer, am a meditation practitioner. Grateful that Jada’s warm up music was really good, inspired me to move my unfit body and so not to break any bones/joints. The whole dance experience amazed me. 5R although has a structure, Jada hosted the class in such a way that support everyone to have their unique expression through their body. Diving from one rhythm to another, her music and energy – supported me to dance throughout a spiritual journey of exploring, understanding, releasing, opening of heart space and the inner child (lyrical was really beautiful).
