Moving into Shabbat 5Rhythms & "knytis"

Guided by 5 Rhythms teacher Adam Eisen, we will move and reconnect body, heart, mind and soul, helping us become more present and open to the arrival of Shabbat. Drawing upon the body’s wisdom, the 5 Rhythms moving meditation offers an embodied way to integrate our week and deepen our spiritual connection to ourselves and others.

Following this class - which ends ca 17.30 - we invite dancers to stay for an informal communal meal "knytis" together with PJS's Rabbi Rebecca Lillian (who also loves dancing the 5Rhythms). As it will be Shabbat, this will begin with candle-lighting and blessings. Please bring your own food (vegetarian/fish only), something to drink, and maybe something small to share if possible.

The 5 Rhythms® are a simple, dynamic movement meditation that releases the dancing soul that lives within each of us. No previous experience of dance or 5 Rhythms is necessary, and everyone can participate regardless of physicality. There are no special steps to learn, and you can follow your own pace and movement. The 5 Rhythms – flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness – are different movement qualities that together build a wave of energy and presence. The method was developed by Gabrielle Roth and more information is available at

The class will begin with a short warmup and introduction, followed by a guided wave, supported by music including Jewish and Middle Eastern beats as well as meditational melodies.
The class is led by Adam Eisen, a certified 5 Rhythms teacher who has danced the 5 Rhythms since 2013.
