NB when you come to a space holder sweat, there will be no teaching; James and Catherine are qualified (by 5Rhythms' Global) to hold the space and play music. First they will offer you a warm up (in the form of a 5Rhythms' Wave) and then after a demonstration - physical and verbal - of the different rhythms, they will play another wave. The "Sweats" are there to encourage you to embody the 5Rhythms and to be curious about what you learn from the teacher classes and bring that into your practice.

Notes: This a gentle meditative class for older people, with low impact movement; no level of fitness required, beginners welcome. Wheelchair access. We move, we laugh, we give our bodies attention; we become aware of our possibilities and our limitations. We can sit or lie on the floor and we can dance. If you love to sway to a beat and haven't got enough room in your kitchen - come and join us and move on a beautiful floor in the company of others who want to let their feet dance. Based on Gabrielle Roths' 5 Rhythms.

We will be working with our focus on the opportunities within the 5Rs Wave to move away from our usual patters to enable us to channel our energy into new directions in movement; to grow our dances using our innate creativity and to welcome in spring with a seasonal budding in preparation for flowering. We will move through the wave using this theme of growth and creativity to embody each rhythm as well as using the metaphors of earth, fire, water, wind and compassion to stir our creative bodies , hearts and minds. The following poem has always inspired me... THE BUD STANDS FOR ALL THINGS EVEN FOR THOSE THAT DON'T FLOWER, FOR EVERYTHING FLOWERS FROM WITHIN, OF SELF BLESSING; THOUGH SOMETIMES IT IS NECESSARY TO RETEACH A THING ITS LOVELINESS TO PUT A HAND TO THE BROW OF THE FLOWER, AND RETELL IT IN WORDS AND IN TOUCH, IT IS LOVELY UNTIL IT FLOWERS AGAIN FROM WITHIN, FROM SELF-BLESSING.

Notes: I have been teaching movement work for nearly 15 years, and was originally trained in 5Rhythms by Gabrielle Roth. I am still teaching it, but this new Movement practice has interested me for 6 years during which i have been studying with Andrea Juhan. I am offering it to you and the community in and around Bournemouth and I hope that you will find it as deep and life changing as I do.
