So onwards with the exploration into movement… I discovered 5Rhythms about three years ago and only recently took my irregular practice a little deeper. 5Rhythms in my own words is, superficially a form of freestyle dancing, and deep beneath that- an intricate system of movement meditation mainly comprising 5 types of ‘rhythms’; Stillness, flowing, Staccato, Lyrical and Chaos, founded by the late, Gabrielle Roth.
And after dipping my toe into the practice and bouncing between episodes of cringey-awkwardness and full-blown ecstasy(!), I finally felt ready to learn a bit more, and I got in touch with one of the main teachers of this method in London, Christian De Sousa from Dancing Tao. Here’s some shots from a recent collaboration with Christian and the core Dancing Tao team.
