So often we long for the contact outside of us, and so often we are left empty-handed, and heavy-hearted. 5Rhythms practice is bringing us back to the beginning, and with the Flowing Rhythm we learn to contact ourselves. Over and over again, building that relationship as a foundation for any other. Anchoring this longing to be in touch back into our own moving bodies.
“If you aren’t fascinated with your own dance how is someone else supposed to be?” -Gabrielle Roth
When knowing where the home is we have more courage to take risks and go outside with the Staccato Rhythm and meet the others. How do we get in touch with each other without the touch? How do we keep moving while the other is keeping moving as well, and not always in the same tempo or direction? Exploring our questions in the Chaos Rhythm we surrender to not knowing. We dance the unpredictability of two energies meeting each other. We let 1 + 1 be 3 and even more. Having a whole weekend to be and dance together, will give us enough time for those spontaneous, effortless and magical contacts that are gifts of Lyrical Rhythm. The invitation is to relax into awareness of how connected we already are — all breathing the same air and all our roots dancing together in the same Earth. Stillness Rhythm whispering “We are One.”
“On the dance floor, meeting complete strangers in the beat, you have the opportunity to rip off your mask and relax into the rhythm of connection.” – Gabrielle Roth

Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken to the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.
This workshop counts as a prerequisite for the 5Rhythms Teacher Training.
