5 Rhythms

“When you put the body in motion, the psyche will heal itself.” Gabrielle Roth

5 Rhythms® is the movement practice of teacher and artist Gabrielle Roth. Energising and liberating, it is designed to release the Dancer – the free, fluid, creative self that lives in all of us. The Rhythms are flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness. They come together to create the ‘Wave’ – a movement meditation practice that is the foundation of this body of work. Each Rhythm is a gateway into a different field of energy in which we discover our own steps and expression. This is a formless form. Whilst there is structure and a clear map, there is also the potential for endless improvisation, creative possibility and discovery within it. Sometimes fun and exhilarating, sometimes challenging, it is, literally, the dance of our lives.
