I base my workshops, Inner Rhythms, around the 5Rhythms. I use it alongside my 5 years as an improvisation teacher and 14 years as an integrative Counsellor to support people to go deeper into their bodies.
5Rhythms, a conscious dance method, was developed by Gabrielle Roth at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, in the 1960s. Via body awareness, flow of breath, creative expression, and surrender in motion, we´ll invite intuitive dance, heart opening, and expansion of consciousness – liberating and drug-free.
5Rhythms, Flowing-Staccato-Chaos-Lyrical-Stillness, follow the organic flow of energy to experience essential aspects of energy and expression. Be guided into body intuition and invite the joy of connection in motion – Quote “Put your body in motion and your psyche will heal itself” Gabrielle Roth.
When we place these Rhythms together they create a wave, a movement meditation practice. Rather than having steps to follow, each rhythm is a different energy field in which you find your own expression and choreography, thereby stretching your imagination as well as your body. Each rhythm is a teacher and you can expect to meet different and sometimes unknown aspects of yourself as your dance unfolds and your practice of the rhythms deepens over time.
They are a map to everywhere we 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.
