Surrendering to the Rhythms

a 5Rhythms® Fundamentals Weekend Workshop

June 9-10, 2018 in Tijuana, Mexico

Our bodies hold many stories, utilizing the 5Rhythms® movement meditation practice we can access the body wisdom and give expression to old and new stories waiting to manifest. This weekend we will explore the fundamentals of the 5Rhythms® practice, surrendering to each Rhythm and allowing it to take us on a deep journey of body intelligence, listening and expressing in a way that brings us to a place of harmony both within and in our relations. You will end this weekend with increased awareness of self and how to utilize movement as a meditation for increased wellness and healing both on and off the dance floor. 

Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement practice that opens the mind/body connection to experience transformation at its highest level. Moving through the 5Rhythms map of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness we complete a journey called a Wave. In Flowing we connect within, nurturing ourself moment to moment. The beat picks up bringing us outward into expression of our discovery, giving our body voice through movement.  In Chaos we surrender each body part to the dance, releasing long held stories and beliefs that no longer serve us and hold us back from our true authentic radiating selves. Tuning in, giving expression and releasing opens the door to discovering the deepest parts of ourselves in Lyrical lightness, listening to the whispers of your soul “what do I really want in this life, in this moment”.  Through this map we come into harmony with our full mind, body, soul connection in Stillness, slowing down and following each breath, integrating our experience.  Each Rhythm offers a wealth of information and unearthing of self.  No experience needed, this workshop is for new and advanced students of movement practices. Are you ready to discover the gems inside you waiting to be released in the dance, in connection and in community where you will be accepted and appreciated just as you are in each moment.
