Summer Soul Groove


Are you ready to fully embrace the wonder and delight of being alive?

Join us for an exhilarating 5Rhythms workshop where we will use movement, music, and the beat to tap into our deepest sense of aliveness.

Through the practice of the 5Rhythms - flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness - we will explore the full spectrum of our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves - as immortalised by the words and actions of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius: “What stands in the way becomes the way. The impediment to action advances action” - each rhythm offers a unique pathway for self-expression, self-discovery, and transformation.

All ages and physicalities are welcome. No previous dancing experience required - there are no steps to learn!

About 5Rhythms®:

Dancing the 5Rhythms is a practice - a dynamic way to both workout and to meditate in the same breath. They teach us that life is energy in motion, freeing us from any fixed notions about people, places, objects or ideas.

They say that a picture tells a thousand words.

One deep dance tells millions.

In dancing 5Rhythms you can unearth a freestyle movement vocabulary rooted in unexpected, fresh ways of moving - visceral and highly personal.

In dancing 5Rhythms you can track perceptions and memories; seek out gestures and shapes; tune into instincts and intuitions. They reveal ways to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. They reconnect us to cycles of birth, death and renewal and hook us up to the spirit in all living things. They initiate us back into the wisdom of our bodies and unleash movement’s dynamic healing power.

In dancing 5Rhythms the body becomes our spiritual path.
