This week while I am off on a mini-vacation, I want to introduce you to Tina Marinic. She is currently a participant in the training path to become a certified 5Rhythms teacher.
Tina will teach this Wednesday's Zoom class as part of her requirements for completing the 5Rhythms Teacher Training Program.
These classes support the trainee's growth and development as a 5Rhythms teacher. It is my hope that you will attend and support her efforts.
And now for some thoughts from Tina...
I did not sign up for this! What now? When is this going to be over? Are we there, yet?
Crazy times, right?
I've spent the past year gritting my teeth and powering through, treading water, and waiting for my life to get back on track. Recently during a particularly low moment, I realized I was wishing my precious life away. A longing for what could have been if only all of this never happened. I felt so silly that all I could do was laugh.
It got me thinking; how can I be more present and more comfortable in the here and now? Then I laughed again--there's a movement meditation for this!
In the 5Rhythms dance, we set our bodies and breath into motion, peeling away the nagging distractions of the mind that take us away from discovering who we truly are--living, breathing works of art that are free to grow and change.
Come Sweat Your Prayers with me and let's explore how to be true to yourself in this chaotic world.

ABOUT THE SDP 5RHYTHMS CLASSES
5Rhythms is a simple 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.
The primary teaching of this work is: If you put your psyche in motion, it will heal itself.
The five rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness. They come together to create a wave. There are no dance steps to follow. Each rhythm has a different 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.
In Sylvie Minot’s weekly online 5Rhythms class, you will be led on a journey of self-discovery as we come together in community. The class is made up of two waves. The first wave is your time to arrive, let go of your day and settle into your body. During the second wave, we dance more deeply and explore a specific theme.
Any level of fitness, agility and ages are invited to participate. All are welcome and no prior dance training or ability is required.
About Tina Marinic
Tina Marinic has always felt she exists in a space between worlds. She was raised by immigrant parents in the heart of the American Midwest. Tina pursued a career in research science, eventually transitioning to interior design.
One night she found herself at a High Vibrations Waves class in New York City and thought she found her latest pick-up spot, only to later have the power and depth of this practice sink in during one truly monumental dance.
Tina used to see herself as uncommitted and inconsistent, but now understands that she's been simply following her heart this whole time. She currently finds herself in San Francisco, California, embarking on many new adventures, including 5Rhythms teacher training. This training would have finished in May of 2020, but the universe had its own plans.
Syzygy Dance Project (SDP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that transforms lives through dance movement. We offer regular dance classes to the public and outreach dance classes for inmates, veterans, recovering addicts, chronically ill patients, and the elderly.
