Paekakariki 5 Rhythms Movement Meditation Class
Presented by Alex Rodriguez 5 Rhythms Teacher
Gabrielle Roth's Movement Meditation Practice
Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5 Rhythms is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice, rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche is motion, it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups, to transform suffering into art, art into awareness and awareness into action. Wherever the 5 rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to shatter the ego's hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that years to be free.
Each rhythm is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprising and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative. It is, in essence, exercise for the right brain.
When we practice 5Rhythms, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects us to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things. Within the group context we create connection and community and hone our instincts and our intuitions. We are made up of all walks of life, every culture, religion, race, gender, age and sexual preference are welcome.
5Rhythms transcends dance. The movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay masks down, and dance till we disappear. Only to rediscover ourselves through it all.
