This week, while Sylvie Minot is on vacation, please welcome Kristen Jackson Banister as Syzygy Dance Project’s teacher for Wednesday’s movement class on Zoom from 7:30 - 9 pm PST.
Kristen is an Open Floor International Movement Teacher, certified Syzygy Outreach Facilitator, somatic psychotherapist, and the creator of Flagstaff Freemotion. She sees practices of embodiment through dance as a way of remembering the human connection to the natural world, to one another, and as a path to knowing oneself with greater depth and clarity.
In Kristen’s own words ...
I’m looking forward to teaching this Wednesday! I hope you’ll join me in a dance of well-being.
In the midst of these stormy times can we build shelters in places of goodness?
Can we cultivate a relationship with comfort and ease?
Can we learn to return again and again to a foundation of relaxed presence in order to engage whatever comes our way?
As the wind loves to call things to dance, May your gravity be lightened by grace. - John O'Donohue, For Equilibrium

About Sylvie Minot's 5Rhythms Class
The 5Rhythms is a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in everybody 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 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 class, you will be led on a journey of self-discovery as we come together in community. The 5Rhythms 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.
