s p a c e ~ All Ages Sweat Your Prayers with Layah

At this monthly Sweat Your Prayers, we gather with dancers of all ages to move through the 5Rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness®. Differing from a class in that there is little formal 5Rhythms movement meditation instruction, here we rely on the dance within to guide our practice. Supported by diverse musical soundscapes, together we move, we sweat, and we co-create sacred space.

“The body says what words cannot.” ~ Martha Graham

What if our bodies could talk? What if we listened?

5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement meditation practice - a map to reconnect with an innate spectrum of body expression. There are no steps to follow in this improvisational movement methodology. Instead, we show up, tune in and move what is alive in us. This dance is the dance of remembering. Of returning. Of allowing something deeper to move us...

Classes within this series will build upon each other, allowing for continuity and depth of learning. Pre-registration for these series is strongly encouraged. For those who are unable to participate in the full series, there may be limited drop-in spaces available. Please email the week you are planning to drop-in, to ensure there is space.
