The healing power of sweat was known by ancient tribes who provided sweatlodges. Gabrielle Roth the founder of the 5Rhytms was also aware of this.
“To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweatlodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy.” – Gabrielle Roth
The 5Rhythms are workout and meditation for everybody who loves to dance. It’s a simple and deep way of movement healing for body and mind, heart and soul. The 5Rhythms create a Wave and invite you to listen to your body, bring your unique energy into movement and to (re)discover your natural flow and ways to express it.
The sweatlodge ceremony is an ancient old purification ritual within many indigenous cultures. The most wel known is maybe the ones from the North American Indians. The sweatlodge tradition that Michaela shares is based on the Chippewa Cree tradition, been passed on to her by the Native Elder Ron Evans, and has been experienced as a warm blanket.
Feel embraced in the sweatlodge
Time for healing, prayer, blessings, songs, giving thanks
Where the stones are our Grandfather and the water Grandmother
They who come together in their sacred love making
To embrace us in the healing steam
The smell of for ever green
Welcome in the Circle
