5Rhythms


Introduction to The 5Rhythms: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness™
The 5Rhythms map a natural cycle of movement. Each rhythm defines a stage, and state-of-being within this cycle. Embodying the Rhythms cultivates adaptability and presence within an ever cycling internal and external world. This class introduces the somatic cues and inquiries that lead each body on their own movement journey into and through the 5Rhythm Wave.

The 5Rhythms™ is a body-based awareness practice created and developed by artist, theater director, and author Gabrielle Roth. The practice centers around the idea that if you put the psyche in motion, it will heal itself. Movement is the medicine, the metaphor and the meditation.

The 5 Rhythms are: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness™. Through progressive levels of discipline, The 5Rhythms practice leads to depth work in emotional, mental and spiritual embodiment. A combination of movement, music, dance, meditation, play, theater, ritual, individual, partner and group work are employed as embodied transformation tools. Long-term study, and an apprenticeship training program are required to facilitate the 5Rhythms.
