In Rhythms & Elements, we will use the images, symbolism and vocabulary of each Element to enter into the landscape of the 5Rhythms. We will invite the Elements into our space and our dance, one by one. This approach expands our perspective of the Rhythms, offers our bodies new creative ways to move, and deepens our practice.
In the same way that the 5Rhythms are a part of us and live everywhere around us, we are made of these 5 Elements and they are present in our everyday lives. We will find Earth for our Flowing, learn about our Staccato through Fire, dive into our Chaos through Water, lighten up our Lyrical through Air, and empty our Stillness through Ether.
“The 5Rhythms are a map to everywhere you want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional, and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild, passionate, instinctive self.”
Prerequisites: There are no pre-requisites for this workshop. All levels of 5Rhythms experience are welcome.
