5 Rhythmsâ  class

About the Class:


The 5Rhythms® is a moving meditation founded and trademarked by Gabrielle Roth in the1960s. There are no steps to learn or follow, so the dancer is free to improvise and experiment. Structure is provided by the rhythms themselves. This means that dancing a wave in the company of other people can be both deeply personal and an intimately shared experience, regardless of each individual's dancing experience or physical ability. You don't need to think or worry about what you are doing, just relax and surrender to the wisdom of your body.

Excerpt from The Power Wave video by Gabrielle Roth, directed by Michelle Mahrer.
