Sweat Your Prayers

with Scotty Lewis

Thursdays from 7:00pm-8:30pm
$15  single class (trade and class cards available)

Sweat Your Prayers®is a gathering of community to practice the universal rhythms of flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness in a continuous wave of free spirited dance connecting to the sacredness of oneself and another.  “It is a deep medicine journey, a journey of sweat, blood and bones – nothing less than an intimate affair with ourselves.”  We dance and sweat our prayers surrendering to the beat of each rhythm.  “Dancing the 5Rhythms is a practice …a dynamic way to both workout and to meditate in the same breath.  To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self.”  (Roth, 1997)
