Many indigenous cultures believe that the inner and outer worlds are mirrors of each other.
We contain an entire world inside of us--all of the elements of nature and energies of the planets and stars.
The more aware we are of these energies, we can access their healing essence. Each part of our body holds different energies. Various cultures have specific maps to navigate their vibrations.
In this week's class, we will move through the energetic places in the body that many practices have in common. We will also discover our own body map.
The frequent locations of these energies are:
- The umbilical region houses the spiritual fire.
- The soles of the feet are the connection to Mother Earth.
- The sun resides on the head.
- The hands connect us to taking action.
- The third eye - the intersection of the mind-soul.

ABOUT SYLVIE MINOT'S 5RHYTHMS CLASS
In Sylvie Minot’s weekly online 5Rhythms class, you will be led on a journey of self-discovery as you join others 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.
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.
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.
Please note -- for the virtual 5Rhythms class, you don't have to connect via video--you can choose to call in or join by audio only and listen to the class through a headset. Some dancers enjoy going for a walk outdoors while they move to the music.

Kate’s images in acrylic and mixed media are rooted in love and social justice, expressing a deep listening to the interconnection of life’s inner and outer landscapes. In this potent time of awakening, Kate remains committed to listening and examining her embodiment of whiteness, the anti-racist work of helping deconstruct white power structures and shifting the dominant narratives towards equity.
Kate’s passion for creativity grew from a deep connection to the natural world in her homelands of Vermont and inspired by her artist mother. She remains an active Creative Being in the occupied Ramaytush outside lands of San Francisco, California. You can purchase a print of her illustration on her website by clicking here.
