Tammy Burstein instructs the following:
  • Waves - 5Rhythms Movement Meditation Practice
  • Waves: Gabrielle Roth¹s 5Rhythms® Movement Meditation Practice,



    Waves is the foundational map of the 5Rhythms® practice. It¹s a map to set us free to explore the life dance of moving and being moved. We come to the Wave to be held, heartened, informed, lightened and inspired by and through our personal and collective creativity. We dive in to realign body, heart and mind, to re-member body and soul, and to reconnect body to spirit, flesh to breath. We dance to become one.
