Embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery through the fusion of movement and music with Syzygy Dance Project's monthly Saturday morning 5Rhythms Sweat Your Prayers™ class.
Immerse yourself in the magic of dance, where the synergy of body and rhythm creates a space for personal exploration. Join a supportive community of like-minded individuals and experience the profound power of movement.
Sweat Your Prayers
"Sweat Your Prayers" is a movement practice and dance meditation created by 5Rhythms founder Gabrielle Roth. She developed the practice as part of the larger movement philosophy known as the 5Rhythms. The 5Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice that explores five different rhythms—Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness—as a way to unlock creativity, release energy, and promote self-awareness.
In "Sweat Your Prayers" through the physicality of dancing and moving your body, you can engage in a form of embodied prayer or meditation. It's a way to connect with your deeper self, release pent-up energy or emotions, and experience a sense of freedom and authenticity through movement.
The practice is inclusive and accessible to people of all ages and physical abilities. It has been embraced by a diverse range of individuals seeking a holistic approach to self-discovery and personal growth. Classes are conducted in a supportive and non-judgmental environment, encouraging participants to explore and express themselves through movement.
There are no prescribed steps; instead, tap into your body's wisdom, bringing awareness to patterns within yourself and discovering your unique expression. Sylvie Minot guides the class in silence, offering you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the experience of "dancing" as a moving meditation.
