Looking to feel at peace in your body? Want to experience a healthy stress release? Want some time to commune with your deepest self? Your tears are welcome, your strength is welcome – come and move with us! We will work with a practice inspired by Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms and dance our way home to ourselves. This is a moving, expressive, dynamic, transformational practice.
We create this dance together through deep listening to our whole selves – beyond the mind, tapping into the heart and soul of what it is to be human. We practice tracking our sensations, connecting our movements with our breath and shaking out what is no longer needed. What is left after we are cleaner, is the tug on our hearts pulling us into our lives and connecting us with the wisdom of our bodies.
In her book, “Move: How the New Science of Body Movement Can Set Yourself Free,” author Caroline Williams notes that “On average, we now spend 70% of our time sitting or lying around.” She also notes that “core strength is linked to stress control.” As well as citing studies on how good dance is for our bodies and our emotional health.
We hope you’ll join us.

Arlyn has been dancing on a regular basis, leading a body centered practice, at a residential rehab center. The practice itself is a rich teacher, and she learns from clients as they pass through. Arlyn completed extensive dance training with Melissa Michaels and Wild Life Productions (now Golden Bridge) in Boulder, CO. For Arlyn’s dance practice and knowledge of ritual, she thanks Melissa Michaels, Amina Knowlan, Neelam, Jeannie Zandi, The Magical Mystical Muse, Cheri Shanti, Gabrielle Roth, Nancy Smith and Frequent Flyers Productions, Terry Sendgraff, Ixeeya Beacher, Authentic Movement, yoga, satsang, and thousands of years of dancers moving their bodies.
