Join us for a movement series with our Ancestors!
Sylvie Minot's Ancestors classes explore your often unconscious family/ancestral patterns and offers a way to shift and release them.
Through dance, movement, voice/sound, and guided group exercises, Sylvie uses each of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms—flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness—to honor your past and create new pathways for healing.
5Rhythms is a simple meditative movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body regardless of shape, size, age, or experience. While the dance itself is simple, it has the power to catalyze deep healing and creative expression.
Classes feature DJ music that is facilitated by the teacher, Sylvie Minot. There are no dance steps to follow, but you are guided in breath and movement through the different musical choices.
Each rhythm has its own energy and tempo in which you tap into the wisdom of your body, bring awareness to the patterns in yourself and your life, and find your individual expression. No two classes are the same.
Any level of fitness, agility and ages are invited to participate. All are welcome and no prior dance training or ability is required.
You must be available for all three days of the workshop.

“The body holds stories and old wounds, and medicine as well. It has the antidote to heal itself. Through moving, we release our stories and allow healing to come through.”
"An experience that transcends dance and delves into our connection to the past. I wholeheartedly recommend this Sylvie's workshop. It has left an indelible impression on my life, and I am excited to continue my journey of self-discovery and moving through my grief journey"
