Product Description

Product Description

From the pages of Shape and Elle to the Utne Reader and New York Magazine, Gabrielle Roth has been put in the spotlight for her revolutionary approach to dance as an ecstatic practice anyone can do. At packed workshops and retreats across North America and Europe, people who never thought they could dance are having a high-energy experience that frees the body and inspires the creative spirit. On her first home workout video, Gabrielle Roth introduces us to 'The Wave,' a moving meditation based on five universal rhythms that flow through our lives. Gabrielle teaches that each of these rhythms has the capacity to teach, catalyze, and even heal. As we join Gabrielle and her dancers (all non-professionals), we learn to improvise our own unique dance forms using every part of the body, from the inside out'.There is a dance that only you know how to do,' Gabrielle says. The Wave makes it fun to experience the ecstasy of your body in motion - to some of the most irresistable high-energy dance music weve ever heard!

About the Actor

As one of the most charismatic, passionate and persuasive voices in contemporary spirituality, Gabrielle Roth has taught her philosophy, practice and perspective of life as a rhythmic and creative experience in artistic, educational and healing contexts around the world through cathartic movement and ritual-theater workshops and performances. Her work has taken thousands of people on a journey from physical and emotional inertia to the freedom of ecstasy, from the tyranny of the chattering ego-mind to the blessed emptiness of stillness. The Wave is a moving meditation developed by Gabrielle Roth based on the five universal rhythms that flow through our lives: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness.

Awesome! 9 Jan. 2007
By H. Savino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This DVD is like nothing I have ever seen. It is not structured like a normal workout or dance instruction DVD, although I do use it as a workout because it is such good exercise. However, it goes way beyond that to create a meditative, spiritual experience, uniting the mind and body in a kind of ecstatic dance. The dance is basically free-form, though following certain "rhythms" which are explained in the DVD's introduction. There is a guided narration throughout, which I find inspiring, but we are basically left to move however we feel like moving, so it is a different experience every time. I always end up feeling energized and alive in a way that is hard to describe. The music is energizing and beautiful, and the DVD is beautifully filmed. I only wish that Gabrielle Roth would come out with more DVDs (although she does have a couple of others that are close), because nothing I have found can compare to the experience of this one. Give it a try. I think you will be amazed.

Absolutely wonderful 16 Dec. 2007
By Caiti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I dance the Five Rhythms on and off myself. In workshops or on my own. I participated in a workshop with Gabrielle Roth herself and also in workshops led by other teachers from her international crew.
So I'd say I know roughly what the practice entails. Except, every time you dance, it is a new beginning, a clean slate, an empty space and you start only with your presence. Nothing else is needed.

I've bought this DVD out of curiosity and I do not regret it. On contrary I'd recommend it to anybody, beginner who never heard of this work or the more seasoned participant. It is nicely done. After all I am a film editor so I think I can judge it adequately. It is beautiful to watch. But mind you, you won't just sit quietly. Your body parts will start moving. Later you can also play only the music, separately.

The DVD captures the feeling and the essence of the "work, dance" very well. It also provides clear enough practical instruction. No, there's no one standing up giving you a long speech. It is all moving all the time. I guarantee that after watching it for the first time you'll be able to start your own practice at home right away. Dare to experiment with your movement and say after me: Yes, I can!

As Gabrielle mentioned herself, one doesn't need a lot of space either. Her New York apartment was not exactly spacious and yet she danced in it, daily.

So there is one risk. After buying this DVD you have no excuse not to dance. But hey, there's a big chance you'll like it. So give it a try! See you on the dance floor!

And no, I didn't get payed for writing this. The Five Rhythms inner circle people will not be able to guess who wrote this review. And I won't tell. I told you what I wanted.

a great fitness/movement dvd for different abilities (RA) 17 Oct. 2011
By Desert Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've had arthritis since childhood - artificial joints added in my mid thirties, and I am now in my early 40's. With other fitness dvds I usually wind up hurting myself by forcing my body to attempt positions and moves that are just not possible for my joints to be able to achieve. I found this series a couple of years back and it's really the only one I've ever stuck with. If my joints are acting up I can change the motions to suit my abilities for the day; the Wave relies on general guidelines of movement types rather than specific "dance-y" or regimented moves - I LOVE this concept!!!

Another plus is that I've never been the kind of person that could slow my ADD brain down enough top meditate but I've noticed a feeling of mentally "floating" while I focus on how my body moves and feels as a result of this class. During and afterward, I find my mind does not race quite as much. Overall, I feel better for having moved well and my mind is more relaxed after doing even just a small section of this dvd.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Wow. What a fantastic video! It's impossible not to get up and dance. Really. If you have any desire to get more in touch with your body, to find a spiritual connection through movement...get this video. Try it, you'll like it.

Not what I was expecting 22 Oct. 2011
By Coco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I love the concept. Moving for healing - different rhythms tapping into different levels of this. However - it was much too slow for me. Please note - I like to use boxing drills for exercise.
