If you haven’t heard of eurythmy before you are probably not alone. There are so many other movement workshops around that to keep up with every single one of them is quite impossible and the name might sound a bit obscure and not so easy to remember. However, eurythmy is exactly the meaning of it’s name: harmonious movement. It is a movement art that can help us reconnect and to feel ourselves as a fully present member of our own little microcosm and the wider macrocosm around. It helps us become aware of ourselves and to stay present in our everyday busyness and to feel a greater sense of connection to what is going on around us.
My upcoming workshop Fundamentals of Eurythmy on the 29th April is both intended to be a taster session for anyone who hasn’t tried eurythmy before and to be a refresher for those who have. During the workshop we will work with some of the very fundamental aspects of movement – how we connect with the ground beneath us and how we consciously engage with the space we are moving in. We will be working with aspects such as rhythm and geometric forms and there will be plenty of exercises that you can use as a movement meditation and that you can continue practising at home. There will also be exercises that help improve our coordination and concentration and that are fun, upbeat and engaging. All in all it’s intended to be both a lively and reflective morning that will hopefully help you look at movement in a whole new way. So if you feel like trying something new and getting a few tools to work with at home come along! All you need to bring is yourself and a pair of eurythmy shoes or antislip socks if you have any – if not, socks will do just fine.
