Fun and relaxing activities to join in

Do you enjoy dancing to music? Do you like the way it makes you feel? We believe that moving to music in a particular way can have a very positive effect on your mind and body. It can help keep you fit and healthy, it can restore lost energy and it can improve your mood.

Enhancing Health Through Movement and Balance

Initiated in the early Twentieth Century by Rudolf Steiner, Eurythmy is concerned with the development and expression of the whole human being through movement, language and music. It aims to restore inner balance through the creative use of rhythm, harmony and proportion. 
In Eurythmy the creative forces of the imagination are reawakened in order to explore the dynamics of thoughts, feelings and intentions.

Eurythmy forms part of the activities at Pericles both as group work and as individual therapy.  This activity has something to offer to everyone. Its emphasis is on what is created between people, rather than on individual virtuosity, and this helps the individual to develop a sense of self within a group environment.

 

We believe that through movement we perceive balance, 
structure, rhythm, development and even time. The forces and principles of movement in the world are inherent within the human 
organism.  It is through exploring the essence of 
movement itself that we discover its healing properties. Through Eurythmy we are guided to transform our habits, our attitudes and our bodies. Eurythmy is a therapy where the 
participants take an active, conscious step in transforming their condition.
