Monday Moves: 5Rhythms Waves with Aaron Lifshin

We live in a world of change: outside and within.
Every change is a journey.
Every movement, at its outset, a mystery.

We humans are beings in motion, outward and inward: air moves in and out of our lungs with each breath; our blood travels around the body every minute. The 5 Rhythms wave reflects those trajectories. We gather information and choose a direction, set out with purpose, pass through challenges, crises, shadows, then lighten up to soar in freedom and arrive, for a time, on new shores. And then the cycle begins again. Let us take that small cosmic journey on the dance floor together.

In this class we will explore the dynamic structure that is the 5Rhythms wave. The wave, discovered by Gabrielle Roth, forms the foundation of the 5Rhythms moving meditation. The wave is made up of five interlacing rhythms: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. We will move through these in an investigation of the interplay of rhythm, pattern and wave.  

Energy moves in waves.
Waves move in patterns.
Patterns move in rhythms.
A human being is just that
energy, waves, patterns, rhythms.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
A dance.
  - Gabrielle Roth

Aaron Lifshin has been teaching the 5Rhythms for over 2 years. His perspective on the dance practice arises from a desire to know who we are and how we relate to ourselves, to others, and to the world. He is passionate about embodied spirituality as well as progressive activism and the magic and metaphor of literary language. Coming from an intellectual upbringing, he has moved through many worlds: an Ivy League college, the high-tech corporate sphere, the arena of politics and activism, and more. These days, the 5Rhythms dance floor is his home and source of liberation.
