Do you love dance but get frustrated learning steps?
Are you bored of the gym and sick of dull repetitive exercise?
Do you wish you could relax but find meditation too static?
Five Rhythms is the perfect way to release any built-up tensions before the start of a week. Classes start gently with some time to settle and stretch and then the music and teacher will lead you through the 5 rhythms:
Flowing (gentle, fluid, circular, undulating)
Staccato (percussive, funky rhythmic)
Chaos (wild, up-tempo, loose, shaking it out)
Lyrical (light, playful, expansive)
Stillness (meditative, slow, spacious)
It’s a two-hour freestyle dance workout. You don't have to be agile or ‘good’ at dance. You’ll find that by moving at your own pace in your own way you’ll leave feeling more alive and relaxed. Suitable for all ages and abilities, with live drumming once a month.
No need to book - just grab some loose clothing and a bottle of water and show up.
Kate first came across 5 Rhythms 15 years ago and it rapidly became the weekly practice she used to keep herself sane and fit. She decided 8 years ago that she wanted to be a teacher and was accepted by Gabrielle Roth on the teaching path in 2006. She has been teaching now for about 7 years, and is also an experienced forensic and child psychotherapist with a complex patchwork of jobs spanning the fields of child protection, family violence and international development. She is the mother of two girls who also regularly dance five rhythms.
"Kate's classes always feel really safely held and reassuring so I feel able to fully express myself"
"I love the music - it's a perfect mix of the obscure and the recognisable"
