“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf”
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

How do we move with the waves of change that life brings?
Are we thrown off? Do we cling to rickety rafts of habits of resistance?

5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement meditation practice – a map for awakening and embodying our creative capacity to meet all that moves through us. There are no steps to follow in this improvisational movement methodology. Instead, we show up, tune in and move what is alive in us, as we dance a Wave of the 5Rhythms (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness). These qualities of movement mirror the way energy moves and changes in the world. We begin slow and gentle, let our movements become more vigorous as we build to a peak of release, then we follow the ripples of our dance until it settles into a still and meditative place.

In this class series, we will let the 5Rhythms Wave inspire and hold our practice of letting go. Together we will dance, sweat, and cultivate our capacity to tap into the deeper currents of life that are available to us, when we surrender to our body’s wisdom. Every body, and all movement experience is welcome.
