"If you put the psyche in motion, it will heal itself." Gabrielle Roth

Welcome to the web site of Unfolding Movement, the non-profit organisation that we, Nancy en Edo, set up to communicate our love of the 5Rhythms®. We can't imagine life without this practice, and we gladly bring you into movement, so that you can experience yourself what it can offer to your life. Take a (regular) look at this web site, and don't hesitate to let your body taste one of our classes, and to let us know your experience or discoveries.

The 5Rhythms® are an international movement, started by Gabrielle Roth, an American woman with a passion for dance and how it can be used to free ourselves. We have some twenty colleagues in Belgium, and hundreds world-wide. Therefore we chose to not only publish our own activities on this web site, but also a selection of activities of our (inter)national colleagues, as an example of what is available. You'll also find references to the Belgian and international agendas.

Moving with Change

One of the skills that the 5Rhythms® has brought me in all these years is being more flexible in handling the new, the unknown, the unexpected, surprises and changes. As I’m more anchored in myself, after years of dancing flowing, I have built up solid ground on which to stand on, from out of which I can welcome the new. As I am more in touch with my feelings and what is happening inside me, after years of dancing staccato, I can more clearly step forward to meet the unknown. As I have learned to surrender to what crosses my path, by openly exploring it, following it in a flexible way, and really going through it, after years of dancing chaos, I can find my way with more trust through the unexpected occurrences of life. Because I regularly, time and again, experience my life energy streaming through me, after years of dancing lyrical, I can let myself be uplifted when surprises happen to me. As I can more and more let myself be carried by the whole, after years of dancing stillness, I can connect with what is within me and without (outside) me, as I go through the changes.


In October, our colleague Nele Vandezande teaches the joint Fitopia class. End of October, Tammy Burstein gives a Cycles workshop in Amsterdam, and Vehllia Tranne the workshop "Being Flow" in Brugge.
