A rare opportunity to dance with Alain Allard (from UK) in San Francisco!
A Heartbeat and Waves 5Rhythms Weekend Workshop.
Early Bird Price ends March 16. Please register here: http://www.thecitywaves.com/special-events/embodyment-5rhythms-as-daily-practice-alain-allard-sanfrancisco

Once we begin to attend to the rhythms of the body then we begin to hear more clearly the rhythms of life. The voice of the heart and gut intelligence call as loudly to us as the trees in the wind, clouds in the sky and the passing of seasons. The habits of dulling our creative response to Life’s unfolding by numbing down and overthinking are a reversible product of our conditioning. We have learned to stop listening, replace being with doing and seeing with judging.

The 5Rhythms® practice is a simple, dynamically powerful moving meditation practice that can help us wake up to being, feeling and seeing the world and the preciousness of Life with the creative wonder that we were born with. In this workshop, we will work with many of Gabrielle Roth’s simple and powerful Maps to regain physical and emotional presence and greater fluidity. The more we can learn to simply move what we experience the more able are we to actually be present and so live fully and be creative.

ALAIN ALLARD has been dancing the 5Rhythms® for over 23 years, and for the last 15 has been regularly teaching them in different countries, continents and contexts. He is a fully licensed and registered UKCP therapist and a gifted humorous teacher accredited by Gabrielle Roth to teach the Waves, Heartbeat and Mirrors level maps of her work.

He is a Faculty Trainer for the 5Rhythms Teacher Training program. His workshops in the Perspectives series can be substituted towards additional Mirrors requirements for the Teacher Training (full details of this available in 5R Global).

*The workshop counts as Waves and Heartbeat hours towards the 5Rhythms® Teacher Training.

A Gabrielle Roth 5Rhythms® Waves workshop is the foundation of the entire body of 5Rhythms work in which we expand our class work with a deepened physical expression and knowledge of the essential 5Rhythms and their polarities. A Gabrielle Roth 5Rhythms® Heartbeat Workshop is the opening of our emotional world and focuses on how each Rhythm corresponds to the essential emotions: Flowing/Fear, Staccato/ Anger, Chaos/Sadness, Lyrical/Joy, and Stillness/Compassion.
PREREQUISITES: At least some experience of a class or workshop with an accredited 5Rhythms Teacher

Workshop Schedule:
Saturday 11-6pm
Sunday 11-5pm

Tuition: $280
Early bird: $250 by March 16

"EMERGE" verb əˈmərj/
to move out of or away from something and come into view.
"black ravens emerged from the fog"

The 5Rhythms moving meditation gives us the tools to explore, listen and give space to our bodies in order to experience freedom.

Through the discipline of being in our bodies, this movement practice inspires us: to rise from the darkness to the light; to evolve to our fullest potential in this lifetime; to emerge, breathing in fresh air, from stagnant feelings produced by our habitual series of routine movements and postures; to create desire away from boredom to be able to embrace life to its fullest and follow the path to truth.

Whales breaching is a very elegant, enthusiastic & spectacular way of emerging joyfully out of the water. As human beings, let's be inspired by the dance of these amazing creatures to seek ways to express ourselves with grace & elegance, taking powerful steps toward our own growth & realization as individuals & in community.

We will emerge through the 5Rhythms Maps: in Flowing we find our feet in harmony with the Earth element, in Staccato we build our strength and determination fueled by Fire, in Chaos we let go of the weight that keeps us down witnessed by Water, in Lyrical we experience the lightness of our being enveloped by Air, and in Stillness we rest on the feeling of completion suspended in Ether.

Alessandro and Vehllia are Certified 5Rhythms® Teachers Accredited by the 5RTA (5Rhythms Teachers Association). All class and workshop hours with a 5RTA member teacher count towards the training path prerequisites for 5Rhythms certification.

Join us for a weekend of soulful exploration & dynamic movement with the elements!

Running with Wolves - a Women 5Rhythms Workshop with Natalie Poole

http://www.thecitywaves.com/special-events/2015/7/9/one-night-only-running-with-wolves-a-women-5rhythms-workshop-with-natalie-poole

Location:
Presidio Performing Arts Center

5Rhythms is a catalytic dance practice, based on the creative flow of nature. Dancing each of the rhythms Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness offers us a map for understanding our body’s own inner waves, the rhythms of nature, and the rhythms of the creative process.

Nature moves, changes and reproduces in waves and cycles. By moving through the rhythmic waves we rekindle the connections to our own patterns, heal and deepen our expression.

Natalie Poole is a Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher Accredited by the 5RTA (5Rhythms Teachers Association)*, Dance Movement Therapist, mother of two, birth attendant and menstrual educator. She has taught in schools, hospitals and detention centers. She currently teaches regular 5Rhythms classes and workshops in Melbourne, Australia.

Happy Earth Day friends!!! Here's an inspiring and provocative cross continental cinematic journey that explores our cosmic origins and our future as species.

PLANETARY is a breathtaking wakeup call, a poetic and humbling reminder that it's time to shift our perspective. PLANETARY asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us.
