An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely
5 Rhythms® is the original ecstatic dance practice – freeing and easy, it’s a workout and an energy bath. Created by Gabrielle Roth, this practice brings the wisdom of ancient spiritual dance practices into a 21st century context, infusing them with progressive rhythms and adapting them to the modern psyche.
Participants are guided into an exploration of five distinct but natural rhythmic patterns – Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness® – finding then expanding their own style and capacity for expression within each. The practice is grounding and energiesing, increasing fitness, fluidity and enhanced emotional intelligence.
The Rhythm Circle is a 5 Rhythms® closed group that gathers weekly in Bristol on Tuesday evenings, to connect and support one another to drop deeper in the dance and expand the experience, comprehension and embodiment of the profound 5 Rhythms map. It runs in ‘terms’ of approx 10-12 weeks. There are 30 places – at the beginning of each ‘term’, if anyone drops out, their place will be offered to those on the waiting list.
Bernadette Ryder has been immersed in the 5 Rhythms dance practice for more than 20 years, and has been teaching since 1998. She also practices yoga, meditation and Kriya breathwork, which she integrates beautifully into her classes, workshops and training programmes. Bernadette is a Director and co-founder of DMAC (Dance Music Arts Collective) who established and run the ‘In-Alignment Dance Studios’ in Hamilton House.
