In the Saturday morning 5Rhythms Sweat Your Prayers™ class in May, you will be led on a journey of self-discovery as participants come together in community under the direction of certified 5Rhythms® teacher Jennifer Burner.
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.
The 5Rhythms® is a simple, meditative movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every physical body regardless of shape, size, age, or experience. While the practice 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 steps to follow. Each rhythm has a different energy and tempo in which we tap into the wisdom of our bodies, bring awareness to the patterns in ourselves and our lives, and find our own individual expression.
Sweat Your Prayers™ is done with minimal guidance or silence from Jennifer Burner. The "dancing" is meant as a moving meditation.
Please pre-register to reserve your spot as space is limited and classes can sell out ahead.
