What is it?
Come together and bring your curiosity and desire to explore. Using Yoga and the Map of the 5Rhythms to warm up our bodies and Ritual Theater to delve into movement patterns, we will invite the body to stretch, unwind and play in the deep.
The body is a map of our brain. We can can incite comfort and integration of the human experience by inviting our dynamic expression in movement, creating space to feel what is true in the moment while having fun doing it.
Playing with our connections to the group by moving together, sounding, breathing and being in this open space to get funky and free. This class uses both music and quiet to inspire the dive into You, creating deeper connections to enjoying being a soul in body.
5Rhythms is an Awareness Practice
The reason I practice 5Rhythms: I like to push my edges, to feel alive and do something outside of the boxes that try to contain me. Otherwise complacency takes over and life can become mechanical. I’d rather feel the pulse!
A Wave is what we call moving through a cycle of all 5Rhythms. A Wave peels off layers of what is in the way of us being our true selves. The more Waves we dance, the more we feel free to be who we really are!
I love this work, this play, this exploration! It was a huge blessing when I finally found the 5Rhythms and our world wide tribe!!!!
I hope you receive as much and more!
I will dance, move and breathe with you soon.
Yoga, Pilates and Functional Movement Massage
Growing self awareness while connecting to the vitality of this body, I find a regular yoga and Pilates practice is a beneficial way to stay conditioned and connected to well being. Life offers so many asymmetrical happenings and the body adjusts to repetitive movements by holding them in our musculature. Practicing yoga and Pilates helps to unravel the holdings, coming back to center by using the study of these paradigms to nurture symmetry. That way, when life gives you unexpected twists and turns, you can rely on your conditioning practice and sense of self to support you and have fun with it.
Functional Movement Massage is a release technique that offers pain relief and creates greater physical function and awareness. By putting the body in simple motions, minor and acute misalignments are revealed. Using, for example, the Hypervolt vibration massage device, Kiaora uses her knowledge of over 20 years of offering therapeutic yoga and massage to release tightly held and/or numb patterns. She gives the muscles and fascia new sensations, releasing and creating more functional pathways that support skeletal alignment.
Reset Meditation is a great catalyst to balancing and nurturing the whole system! Integrating the left and right hemispheres of your brain allows well being. Easy guided meditation allows you to extract the negative patterns from the mental, emotional and physical bodies, creating more positivity in your consciousness as a true way of being and relating to life. This modality coupled with 5Rhythms has been a profound awakening in presence on and off the dance floor!
Catalyze your personal process with one on one attention.
Whether you’re re-patterning your system through Reset Meditation or focusing solely on the movement modality of your choice, one on one attention will reveal where you are and nurture growth.
“Kiaora is intuitive, gentle, honest, patient, clear and so loving. The work I have done with Kiaora has allowed for me to feel more like myself. I experience the courage to be honest about who I am. I feel more joy. I feel empowered to make changes that I have unconsciously wanted to make for many years. I feel lighter, like so much baggage has been lifted off my heart. I am so grateful to have gotten this time with Kiaora. She is a true healer!!!”
“I found (Reset Meditation) very subtle at first and as time went on (the changes in my life) became very obvious. (This work) allowed me to have more awareness in my relationships and improve them. It has brought me more consciousness about what I am doing and what I want to do. Weeks after my first 3 pack it continues to make ripples of positive change into my life. When I think about it, I can feel my whole being smiling because I know it’s going to continue.”
“After doing body work ( alignment and movement awareness) with Kiaora for about a year, she offered the opportunity to take her newly (instated) Reset Meditation program. I decided to sign up for that as my intuition told me that I would likely benefit from it. In the time since finishing the last session, I have had many indications that I am moving forward on my spiritual path as a result.”
