Laguna Waves 5Rhythms® Class w/Masayo Benoist
The 5Rhythms--Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness® -- are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness--inner and outer, forward and back, physical emotional and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self. Our 5Rhythms Class w/Masayo will hold more grounding, nurturing, insightful instruction. Masayo was born and raised in Japan. She graduated from Toho Art College, which lead her into a career as a singer and actor in the Japanese pop scene in the 80s. She first discovered the 5Rhythms® in 2009 and went on to complete her teacher training in 2014. Her passion is to help people make a positive change in their health and happiness using the power of the mind and body. She has lived in Los Angeles since 1999 and currently teaches in Los Angeles and Japan.

What we're about

No choreography, minimal instruction, carefully curated music to inspire your unique movement. Let the community hold you in authentic expression, through the ebb and flow of life. You are here.

5Rhythms® Sweats are led by local Spaceholders and give each dancer an opportunity to allow the music and your body to become the teacher. Our 5Rhythms® Spaceholders offer a place where you can practice the 5Rhythms® being led by the music and what is present inside to keep your practice thriving. Certified 5Rhythms® mentor teachers provide in-depth teaching on a regular basis in order to enrich your dance and expand your understanding of the power of the 5Rhythms® Waves map. This combination of in-depth teaching from Certified Teachers, workshops and regular unguided Sweats with your local Spaceholder brings the best of the 5Rhythms® world to your doorstep.

Jenelle Smith has been a Sweat Spaceholder™ in Orange County since 2016, having been a student of 5Rhythms® since 1998. She completed her bachelor's in theatre at CSU Fullerton and is drawn to works from Thomas Moore and Joseph Campbell who emphasize the importance of storytelling, metaphor and archetypes. This practice has transformed her life through layers of healing, the miracle of which she is often awestruck. Jenelle is endeavoring to finish the 5Rhythms teacher training in the year of perfect vision, 2020.
