What you will do
2 hour workshop
In this workshop, we will explore our own personal rhythm as a way of connecting with the healing force residing in our bodies. Join us to engage in a series of dynamic activities that will allow us to locate and express our inner rhythm, in a safe, supportive environment. Using guided and explorative exercises, we will use our hands, feet, voices, and bodies to connect with and express our own personal rhythmic mantra to sooth and ground us.
From our earliest moments in the womb, we become familiar with our mother's heartbeat, creating a safe and steady chamber around us. Once born, we begin to march to the beat of our own rhythm, our heart pumps and regulates us, our blood pulses through our veins, even our peristaltic wave pulsates constantly as we digest our food. Yet most of these processes remain unconscious and automatic. We learn how to enjoy music and move to it, yet have become disconnected from listening to the innate rhythm within.
Whether you’re drawn to connecting with your body through yoga or movement practices, looking to activate healing, or just curious to experience a new form of energetic expression - this class will guide you.

- How to tune in to your natural rhythm
