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

I 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.

The 5 Rhythms in Daily Life

On busy days at my work I (Edo) notice how much my practice of the 5Rhythms® supports me, how it keeps me upright, how it allows me to flexibly adjust to circumstances, allows me to find my freedom to choose, and gives me the ability to take time to re-charge my batteries. I use the flowing quality in me to continuously feel what’s happening in me, and to sense which task is the next one calling my attention. I utilise my staccato energy to make my choices and to communicate them to my colleagues clearly and unambiguously. I let myself be led by my intuition when the multitude of questions, all coming at the same time assault me. I can enjoy the satisfaction of supporting a motivated colleague with what is a new task for him. On the journey home, I can spend time taking in the beauty of the rose bushes in the nearby streets, with all of my senses and, through that, feel my connection with life in all its forms.

In the meantime the Spring is nearly over and we look back with gratitude to the Spring closed group and the workshop of 1 June. There are still two drop-in classes before a Summer break and we resume them as from the middle of August. Also, there is the opportunity to take part in another closed group in the Autumn and, most likely, a workshop too.


In August, Nancy teaches the joint Fitopia class (in July there is no class).

And Jonathan Horan gives the weekend workshop "Journey into Trance" on 19-21 July, in Bruges.
