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.

A WesBAM! Workshop for the Male-Identifying Community

sarahmarshall

From the kick-ass kickboxing superwoman Renee Dunn ’14:

Have you been wanting to try one of our group exercise classes, but feared you might be one of the few male-identifying people in the room? Break away the stigma and get a taste of some of what we have to offer at this FREE event.

The WesBAM! Team strives to provide services to the entire Wesleyan community, but demographically, those who identify as male are underrepresented in our classes. This workshop will move through three of our fitness modalities – TurboKick, CardioKickboxing, and Yoga – tailoring to your bodies and ensuring a comfortable environment in which we’ll be open to your feedback as we strive to make WesBAM! more accessible. Try it out and bring your friends! You’ve got nothing to lose.
