Waves Singapore with Vehllia Tranne

choose love.jpg

This evening 5Rhythms session in Singapore will focus on the Staccato rhythm with the theme "Choose Love In Everything You Do".
It takes a courageous heart to stand firm in clear healthy boundaries and in our own truth and authenticity.
How do we find clear definition in creating shapes through our dance toexpress without words, igniting the fire and the warrior spirit in us to break free of the patterns that no longer serves us and taking actions in always choosing love in everything that we do.

We will ride the full Waves together from Flowing; Staccato; Chaos; Lyrical; Stillness and dancing at times with a partner or in group. This is a free-styled dance with no steps to follow, no prior experience needed. Please bring a towel to dry and a bottle of water to hydrate. Most importantly your open curious heart :)

No experience and prerequisite required. Just your curiosity, commitment to be present and open heart. This is an unique opportunity to deepen your knowledge of the 5Rhythms and to experience how this practice can be powerful, enriching and transformational.

Vehllia Tranne is a Certified 5Rhythms Teacher Accredited by the 5RTA (5Rhythms Teachers Association), Founder of The City Waves, which offers weekly 5Rhythms classes, Sweat Your Prayers and produces numerous 5Rhythms workshops in San Francisco.

Mission Friday: 5Rhythms Fundamentals

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!

FACEBOOK PAGE EVENT

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.

FACEBOOK PAGE EVENT

The Dance is love, it is only love, and that is enough. It is always in my heart; it blooms at each of my steps. I would no longer dance to anything but the rhythm of my soul. -Isadora Duncan-

Rhythms of Love: February 3, 10, 17, 24
Every Friday morning 10:00 - 11:30am

February is the month of Love at The City Waves.
We will begin the first Friday with self love, followed by love to each other, then love for community, and to be fully in love with the world and the spirits in all things. Love heals. Let's keep shining and move with love. 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 reconnect us to the wisdom of our bodies and unleash movement’s dynamic healing power. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.

SPECIAL EVENT: Sweat Your Prayers® San Francisco with Davida Taurek

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.

This is a moving meditation practice with music and very minimal instruction. There's no step to learn. We dance our own dance. Everybody's welcomed!

Please come ready to sweat, bring your curiosity, a water bottle and your friends.

On Sunday, July 19, 2015 The City Waves is honored to have Davida Taurek as guest teacher for the Sweat Your Prayers.

We will have Potluck Picnic at Off the Grid: Picnic at the Presidio afterwards. Join us for a meal, a wiggle, and more fun together.

About Davida:
Fascinated by the artistry and healing nature of theater, dance, and self-expression, Davida moved to NYC to work closely with Gabrielle Roth in 1989 and began teaching the 5Rhythms in 1994. She is widely known for her delightful sense of humor, passion, and evocative devotional teaching style.

Davida is full-heartedly committed to this embodied path and knows that it not only ignites our creativity and informs our daily life, but also greatly enhances our sense of well being and aliveness.
