Sensit Yoga and 5 Rhythms - two conscious movement practices coming together at Tao's Center on the gorgeous island of Paros
With Maja Zilih, the embodied yoga somatics will journey us through our inner landscapes, inviting the mind and body to merge into oneness. With Thierry Francois we will embody a dynamic wave of energy, accesing the true nature of our being. Together, Sensit Yoga and 5 Rhythms will cleanse and rejuvenate the body, liberate the mind, and ground us in our essence!
More about Sensit Yoga
Sensit Yoga is a practice of being present to the arising feelings and sensations, while engaged in movement. It is an act of listening to ourselves on a deeper level, such as the level of our bones, organs, or fluids. Increased sensitivity enables us to see which places in our body have a pattern to store tension. We can then re-pattern by releasing this tension consciously through movement, breath and use of gravity. When the energy that was holding the tension gets freed up, what arises is a joyful, effortless and energized way of moving and being. The more we tap into the wisdom of the inner body, the mored we descover that inside us is the biggest source of strength, creativity and freedom.
More about 5 Rhythms
5 Rhythms is a movement meditation practice created and developed over many decades by Gabrielle Roth. The practice is a simple and practical movement map which consist of 5 energetic patterns that exist through ourselves. Put together in a sequence we embody a dynamic wave of energy. There are no steps to learn, no special technique, just the great exploration of discovering the dancer within you. Following the path of this simple practice can catalyse change, expand awareness, release creativity and activate healing and deep transformation. Like all effective practices the more you practice the more you become accessible to the true nature of your being. We all have a dancer within us and the map of this work will inspire the endless possibilities and the ever growing potential to express this.

Being born and socialized in a country that produced and reproduced “followers”, I’ve never thought that I will wish one day to “follow” somebody. And here I am, happy to follow you and your spirit, happy to silent the mind and discover the truth around, and the truth within. In deep appreciation
