Sunday Sweats

To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy. ~ Gabrielle Roth, Sweat Your Prayers

Moving Essence’s Meredith Davies and David Juriansz alongside Madhuma Thompson from RealRhythms offer Sunday Sweat Your Prayers classes. Sunday Sweats are music-only, un-facilitated, 2 x 1 hour 5Rhythms Waves  – the second often with a deeper intention or ‘theme’. It helps to have been to a 5Rhythms class before but it’s not essential.
