The visionary soul-body practice of Gabrielle Roth was a discovery that illuminated my search for healing and authenticity through dance. It is "both workout and meditation in the same breath": purifying the body, heart, mind and soul through the healing power of the 5 Rhythms Wave.
In the 5 Rhythms, Gabrielle proposed a map through these territories of body and psyche, whose processes reflect each other in an endless exchange between matter and spirit. She told us: "Put the body into motion, andthe psyche will heal itself." As above, so below, as below, so above. Our bodies hold the energetic record of our whole lief's experience, and when we move them, those energies are released so that purification can take place.
Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness - they roll through us just like a wave, a natural process mirroring the universal laws that rule all of existence. Dancing a 5 Rhythms Wave, as our practice is called, is to join the Dance of the Universe, a dance where we move beyond ourselves into the deepest quarters of Being, where the Source can renew us.
After a decade of study and five yearsproducing 5 Rhythms workshops, I have been honored to complete the 5R Sweat Spaceholder program, an initiation of the 5R teaching path that will continue the opening of Brazil to this marvelous healing practice.
As music is a key component of the 5Rexperience, I am excited to bring the musical library I've built over my dance career into the Sweats I will be holding. My goal is to provide people with an inspiring, welcoming, non-judgmental space where the musical journey will be a catalyst for profound journeys of healing and revelation.
