The Art of Letting Go
Taught by Karoliina Valontaival (certified 5Rhythms® teacher)
Do you yearn for freedom, but are you afraid to take the leap into the unknown? Are you stuck or uptight, looking for relief, but letting go is difficult? Do you long for something new – yet find it’s easier to stay in the comfort zone you know? Do you want to be more creative and tap into out-o- the-box ideas and inspiration, but struggle to break habits or limiting patterns?
”Untamed” is a workshop where we can break through our inner barriers and enter a state of creative possibility. This is a catalytic dance, where in the course of the weekend we will let go of what we no longer need or what no longer serves us, in order to create space for something new. It is a transition state in which we learn to dance with uncertainty and the unknown: how do I relax into not knowing what is coming next?
Letting go is easier said than done and can’t be forced. Dancing deep can take us to the gateway of surrender. Surrendering is a physical, embodied experience of relaxing into this moment, just as it is, and ceasing to resist and fight it. We are called to soften into our stuck places and let them determine our pace. We will hold and support ourselves and each other to ride our edge, until surrender finds us and takes us in. Come take a leap of faith into your untamed wildness.
5Rhythms is a creative, holistic movement practice that is suitable for everyone regardless of age, experience, body shape, fitness level, gender, or physical ability. Forget complex choreographies and the pressure to perform or perfect: come discover your own dance, the one your body already knows how to do. Read more about what 5Rhythms is here.
