Body Hour

What is it?

Body Hour is a disability inclusive somatic meditation rooted in mindfulness & the principles of 5 Rhythms. Essentially it is a movement/dance practice with explicit permission to rest. This practice was developed, in part, to be accessible to all bodies. There are no requirements as to skill or dis/ability at Body Hour. All bodies are welcome; come and make this practice your own.

Where can I join?

We are currently offering online sessions via Eventbrite. We offer tiered pricing with a free option so anyone is able to join.

Sign up to our mailing list and be the first to receive exclusive updates and discounts on our online and in-person sessions. Plus, you’ll get special access to our carefully crafted playlists, designed to help you practice and get the most out of your Body Hour sessions. 

What happens in a session?

Body Hour begins with an intention or question set by each practitioner. This question can be witnessed and shared between practitioners. The question can be as abstract as you like.

Once the music begins, you are free to explore your question/intention through the time consciously spent in/with your body. This can be a solo journey or you are welcome to consensually interact with other practitioners.

The music playlist will follow the 5 rhythms map: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness. You are welcome to follow this map as a starting point, but we encourage you to let your body and your question guide you through this time: you could spend the entire hour frantically flailing your limbs, laying still on a mat, or sitting in a chair moving only your wrist and pinky finger. It is for you to interpret the intention and the music within your body however it manifests for you. It is a time for you to be in conversation with yourself, however that manifests. We end the session in stillness & rest to allow whatever we’ve experienced over the last hour to integrate.

Each practitioner has the option to conclude and depart individually or to stay and share their experience.
