Love says, “I am everything.” Wisdom says, “I am nothing.” Between the two, my life flows.

5Rhythms® Dance Meditation with Daniela Peltekova

Through the magical power of freeform dance as spiritual practice and the body as a fine instrument, within the container and guidance of the 5Rhythms®, we explore the depth of ourselves as authentic, emotional beings. Creative movement and dance allow for the healing electricity of life force to flow through the veins, energize the bones and relax the muscles. We surrender all stress, open up to what is present and follow the gateways to intuition and inspiration.

The 5Rhythms® is a freeform dynamic movement-based practice, created 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. The 5Rhythms® practice is designed for everybody, regardless of age, shape or experience. Dress to sweat. (www.5Rhythms.com)
