Mission Friday: 5Rhythms Fundamentals

  • Dance Mission Theater 3316 24th Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Your body is the ground metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. So many of us are not in our bodies, really at home and vibrantly present there. Nor are we in touch with the basic rhythms that constitute our bodily life. We live outside ourselves - in our heads, our memories, our longings. -Gabrielle Roth-

5Rhythms Fundamentals Series: March 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
Join us every Friday morning 10:00 - 11:30am!


We will explore each rhythm in depth as we go through the journey of the fundamentals of the 5Rhythms practice, to dance our own dance from the inside out.

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.

When we practice 5Rhythms, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects us to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things. Within the group context we create connection and community and hone our instincts and our intuitions. We are made up of all walks of life – every culture, religion, race, gender, age and sexual preference are welcome.
