5RHYTHMS

Sherron St Clair When we practice 5Rhythms, flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. Each rhythm is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprise in and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative. It is, in essence, exercise for the right brain. www.sherronst.clair.ie
