5 Rhythms Workshop

From Becky Schisler ’14:

Join us for a transformative dance experience!
The 5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement-based practice developed by Gabrielle Roth. Dance, spontaneous and original within every body, is the medium and the medicine in the 5Rhythms® practice. There are no right or wrong moves, no choreography or steps. Curiosity, willingness to move, water bottle, bare feet or light dance shoes are all that is required. The rest is up to the dance. The 5Rhythms® practice is designed for everybody, regardless of age, shape or experience. Dress to sweat!
Daniela Peltekova is a certified 5Rhythms® teacher based in New York City. With warmth, poetic artistry and compassion, Daniela facilitates powerful space for movement and transformation. She comes originally from Bulgaria where the land holds ancient traditions of deep wisdom and spirituality.
