5 Rhythms

‘5 Rhythms’,  a form of mindful moving meditation!

Do you want to exercise but can’t follow a class or have 2 left feet?

Would you like to be more at peace with yourself?

Would you like to be able to navigate the chaos of life more easily?

Like to dance, have fun and not be judged?

If so, this is for you…join us

No previous experience of dance needed, and all are welcome young, old, fit or unfit. No steps to learn and nothing to get right or wrong and no judgement from the teacher. You dance at your level.

The five rhythms

First of all,we will go through the five rhythms so that you can begin to feel them in your own way.

You will be encouraged to “FLOW”  for yourself, followed by allowing the beat to take you into “STACCATO”,  then to move into “CHAOS” with curiosity; next, to drop into “LYRICAL” and find that part of yourself that wishes to sing and embrace everything and finally to find peace and quiet in “STILLNESS”.

Mindfulness

DISCOVER HOW CONSCIOUS MOVEMENT CAN HELP YOU TO BE MORE AT PEACE AND COMFORTABLE WITH THE RHYTHMS THAT RULE YOUR LIFE…

We go through the 5 Rhythms, with focus on being conscious of what is present for us in the moment and how our movement is affected by our thoughts and our feelings.  At the same time, we will explore, how each rhythm has its’ own flavour and also each session is an exploration into being mindful and in the present.

 We  look for the “sweet spot”, the place where we feel wholly together in body, feelings and mind; together with another, the group and the setting.  Searching for this combination of the whole self, and repeating the dance as we feel it, can lead into that energetic space where there is only the beat, your breath, your heartbeat and the space to be you.

The focus is on being conscious of what is present for us in the moment, how our movement is affected by our thoughts and your feelings. It is not about how well you or anyone else performs.

The music

The music is different each time and is a mix of: electronica, jazz, classical, pop, rock and roll, alternative, some fast some slow.
