Sweat Your Prayers® is a gathering where we bring our individual 5Rhythms® practice and move through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness with intention and in community.

To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy. -Gabrielle Roth, Sweat Your Prayers

As we ride the waves of life, we share the spirited mix, eclectic nature of our culture, community and co-existence. The City Waves passionately brings out the potent medicine of this moving meditation with clarity, power and grace.

Waves all around us, waves from inside us, waves from dancing together. Waves that inspire our body to move, whether on familiar and unfamiliar rhythms and beats to discover, challenge, mesmerize, explore and appreciate more of who we are. We find the truth through the body, as the beats changes.

There is no need to have any particular physical background or to consider ourselves dancers or not. We keep moving with the music and the dance will come to us. We dance until the dancer disappears and only the dance remains.

Want to dance in the morning? Want to experience Moving Meditation? Want to recharge and regenerate enthusiasm for the weekend ahead? Come to Mission Friday™! The City Waves™ is extending from the Presidio, now offering 5Rhythms® Waves Classes in the heart of San Francisco Mission District on Friday Mornings!

Alessandro and Vehllia hold safe space for you to practice and to explore the depth of your being in a dynamic and fun way through the map of the 5Rhythms. Join us!

Dancing the 5Rhythms is a practice—a dynamic way to both workout and to meditate in the same breath. They teach us that life is energy in motion, freeing us from any fixed notions about people, places, objects or ideas.

The 5Rhythms – Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness® – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.

Cost: $15 Drop In (Cash Only)
