I frequently look at the sky to the stars for solace. Because of this impulse, I’ve noticed this year has been filled with planetary retrogrades, which we often blame for life’s malfunctions.
As Mars goes into retrograde tomorrow night, the Earth's movement around the Sun passes by the slower moving “retrograding” planet.
I invite you to view this retrograde as an opportunity for inner contemplation.
There are times in our lives when we, too, need to “retrograde,” and reassess through the practice of self-reflection. When a lot is happening, it’s essential to spend time re-envisioning where you are on life’s path. Allow yourself to surrender to this regular planetary cycle and make room for grace to guide you.
“Surrender is a journey from outer turmoil to inner peace.” - Sri Chinmoy
This week, let’s dance with retrograde, surrender, and reimagining. I hope to see you this Wednesday, September 9th, via Zoom!

ABOUT SYLVIE MINOT'S 5RHYTHMS CLASS
5Rhythms is a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in everybody 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 we tap into the wisdom of our bodies, bring awareness to the patterns in ourselves and our lives, and find our own 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.
