WHAT YOU COULD EXPERIENCE
' A great way to end the week! Beautiful space, beautiful teaching, beautiful people. I'll definitely be back. ‘
' Powerful.' ' Last night was beautiful - I felt at ease - the music was mesmorising '
' Anyone can do the rhythms. They are in us and are part of our essential makeup: they just need to be evoked, to find expression in our own unique beings’ Gabrielle Roth
‘If you don't dance your dance, who will? ‘Gabrielle Roth
Come and dance for fun, wellbeing, interaction, to let go, free your mind, explore your creativity, self-awareness, acceptance, personal growth or healing. 5Rhythms is a simple and flexible practice which can be experienced by anyone regardless of culture, gender, age, shape, experience, fitness and physical limitations. There are no steps or routines so dancers can move at their own pace, within their own capacity without judgment from the other dancers.
‘You are how you move’ Gabrielle Roth
WHAT IS THE 5RHYTHMS PRACTICE?
A continuous cycle through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical & Stillness. Each rhythm is an opening to explore self-expression and movement and connect with body, heart, mind, soul and spirit. The music will guide you through the 5Rhythms which will help you to connect, listen to and allow your body to move freely, in its unique rhythm at its own pace. You can move individually or with others if and when you want to.
‘We dance...to shed the past, forget the future and fall into the moment feet first..’ Gabrielle Roth

ABOUT LUCY HOWGEGO, EMBODY YOUR BEAT, 5RHYTHMS WAVES CLASSES IN MILTON KEYNES
I believe that the 5Rhythms philosophy and practice can provide empowering opportunities for individuals to heal, grow, transform and/or enjoy the movement and connection, empty, replenish and move forwards in new directions.
My personal mission is to nurture a safe, peaceful and creative world full of possibilities. I feel most alive and connected to my creative, gentle, vulnerable, spontaneous, playful, intuitive, open-hearted self when I am dancing. I am in awe of the body's ability to hold memories and how the 5Rhythms practice facilitates remembering, feeling, healing, transformation and celebration if you trust and follow the maps.
The 5Rhythms practice is an essential part of my personal growth, healing and spiritual journey. My vision as a teacher-in-training and spaceholder is to share the knowledge and gifts i have received from this practice and support its growth into new communities, diversity and disability. Teaching and spaceholding fill me with joy, satisfaction, pride, awareness, gratitude, humbleness and a love of supporting and empowering others to shine.
I introduced the 5Rhythms practice to Milton Keynes in 2018 and I hold 5Rhythms waves classes on Friday evenings and also produce workshops. My intention is to serve and support the growth of a multi-racial and socio-economically diverse 5Rhythms community in Milton Keynes. I create a new theme each week to invite a different perspective on the 5Rhythms and curate the music to reflect this and guide the group. One of the things I love about the 5Rhythms is the diversity that we bring and I look foward to sharing this illuminating, transformational journey with you. warmest Lucy
