5Rhythms


“Each rhythm is a dynamic state of being, each one a master teacher. Together, they guide us to reweave the web of divine intelligence that defines us. They are a philosophy, a perspective, a practice, a performance art and a prayer. Indeed, they are a cosmology, a modern medicine wheel rooted in trance, a series of interconnected maps to the moving center… the still point in a dancing world. The 5Rhythms move us far beyond freestyle dancing. They are specific catalysts, keys that unlock the psyche and put it in motion to heal itself.”

The 5Rhythms – Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness ™ – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual.

"Energy moves in waves. Waves moves in patterns. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is just that, energy, waves, patterns rhythms. Nothing more, nothing less. A dance."~ Gabrielle Roth

Earth ~ Fluid ~ Feminine ~ Continual ~ Let it In

We invite the state of receptivity into ourselves, moving with continuous, fluid movement, creating circles and spirals. Through our feet or moving on the floor, we connect to the earth and bring our awareness fully into our bodies. Connecting to our inhale, we access our feminine power. Soft, sensual, no start or stop, everything is one big circle. We practice embodying fluidity and receptivity.

Staccato

Staccato

Fire - Masculine - Linear - Focus -  Let it Out

Staccato connects us with our masculine power, our boundaries, our passion and self-expression. Focused and percussive, we express our life force through linear, precise movements in the pulsing beat. Our energy is directed; each move has a definite beginning and ending; we step into the world with clear action. Staccato is the gateway to our hearts and our truth. We practice embodying clarity and communication.

Chaos

Chaos

Water ~ Surrender ~ Creativity ~  Let Go

Chaos is the rhythm of letting go, releasing into the wildness of our dance, unplanned and impossible to repeat. A journey into the unknown, it is the creative territory of Art. We let go of the mind's grip over our body, explore our edges and dissolve in the dance. We practice embodying surrender.

Lyrical

Lyrical

Air * Lightness * Joy * Letting Go of Letting Go

Lyrical is the place we land after we've danced ourselves empty in Chaos. Any weight of self-consciousness dissolves and we naturally lighten up. Our inner child is invited to come out to play. Spreading our wings, we explore the infinite possibilities of our souls and open our hearts to this impermanent, exquisite moment. We practice embodying lightness of being.

Stillness

Stillness

Ether ... Emptiness ... Spirit ... Let it Be

Stillness is the rhythm of emptiness, where gentle movements rise and fall in a field of silence. An internal dance aligning us with our spirit, we are the breath being breathed. Dissolved in the dance, following our breath from one shape into another, fully embodied, we have arrived home. We practice embodying grace.

5Rhythms is a dynamic, moving meditation practice—a practice of being in your body—that ignites creativity, connection, and community. While a seemingly simple process, the 5Rhythms practice facilitates deep and unending explorations, moving the dancer beyond self-imposed limitations and isolation into new depths of creativity and connection.

Gabrielle Roth founder of 5Rhythms

Each rhythm is a teacher and you can expect to meet different and sometimes unknown aspects of yourself as your dance unfolds and your practice deepens over time. The 5Rhythms practice is rooted in the principle that if you put the body in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness and awareness into action.
