In this class we experience the movement meditation practice of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms. Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness are the rhythmic container where our inner dancer is invited to express and be set free.
“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
Take our hands and join our circle of women dedicated to the journey of wild abandon and holy ecstasy~ We dive deep to the realms of intuitive, visceral and instinctual movement to invite and invoke our deepest healing essence as we move our bodies in our shapeshifting beauty, wisdom and power. I look forward to being with you again in all your vulnerability and authenticity.Next 5-month session will begin in May.
This class is offered as a 5 month/once monthly session ~ pre-registration is required.
This class is a guided journey to deepen our understanding of the 5Rhythms and to awaken and expand the rhythms in our bodies.

As a studio we are very aware of the many yoga linages that have suffered from sexual misconduct and abuse. Although our teachers have diverse training backgrounds, Be Moved and all of its teachers implement our strong studio policy to uphold the highest level of ethical integrity in our teachings and in our relationships with our students. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about the classes and practices you find at Be Moved concerning lineage, teachings and ethical integrity.
Intuitive Yoga is an open invitation to listen to your body and find movement that feels amazing to you. The class includes meditation, pranayama (breath-work), and yoga asana (poses). However, rather than focusing on the aesthetics of the poses, students are asked to focus on how the poses feel, and students are given the opportunity to customize their experience and engage in playful and mindful exploration throughout the practice. All are welcome in this class!.
Release the stress of the day through movement, breath, and restorative poses to wind down and meet the evening energy feeling more clarity and a sense of ease in body and mind. Appropriate for any body. Please communicate any needs eg. pregnancy, injuries, etc. to the instructor prior to class. Bring one hand or full sized towel.
This class provides yoga practice that sustains a traditional commitment to yoga’s roots while also honoring the explicit recognition of, and healing from, racism and its intersecting oppressions. This class is a healing space where BIPOC+ are not “othered”, where BIPOC+ are the norm instead of the exception. The goal of BIPOC+ Yoga is to provide an opportunity for people of color to be seen and loved as they make their way through a regular yoga practice. We respectfully remind you that this class is only for those who identify as BIPOC.
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) need a space to practice yoga as a way to heal from the damages of racism and other systemic injustices, many which create serious health impacts on our bodies (e.g, weathering, depression & other mental health, hypertension, cardiovascular disease), also known as embodied inequality (Krieger, 2013). Yoga is recognized as having numerous health benefits but is often practiced in “race-evasive” ways, ones where race, racism, and intersecting injustices are ignored, in largely white spaces. In order to provide a space for BIPOC to engage in yoga that specifically addresses racism and intersectional injustice, we have created BIPOC+ Healing Yoga. The + is in recognition that people of color experience intersecting oppressions (e.g., sexism, ableism, cis-heteropatriarchy) that make them even more vulnerable to societal and interpersonal inequities.
FREE/love offering to all the community. This class is an open, all levels class taught by the teachers at Be Moved and other teachers in our community. Come as a beginner or as an advanced yogi to share in our love for yoga!.
Thanks also to you, Laura Martin-Eagle, for your continued support of Community Yoga, as well as the wonderful instructors that walk through your doors at Be Moved.
Yoga is a word from Sanskrit language which means joining of two objects. There is a connection between Mind and body and Yoga is all about experience of oneness and feeling of harmony. This class focuses on the basic techniques of traditional Yoga such as Asanas (postures), Pranayama (Breathing exercises), Meditation, Sun and Moon salutations, as well as some cleansing techniques. These techniques are uniquely designed so that anyone and everyone can achieve the feeling of harmony with their body. Students are encouraged to recognize their individual strengths and appreciate their own body and mind. All you need to bring to the class is a yoga mat, a bottle of water and a positive mindset!
This gentle class will combine meditation, mudra, mantra, pranayama and asana while creating balance with the 5 elements and the natural world. This class will be available and adaptable to your abilities.
Do you ever wonder how you got to where you are or how you’re going to get to where you’re headed? I wish we all had a straight answer for this question, but we simply took steps and will continue to take steps. There is, however, a deep, quiet and still place that exists in all of us; and gives us a knowing. In this space we can only hear our breath, our life force and our guiding force. When we are willing to let ourselves be still and breathe, to go to that deep, quiet place of knowing, we find trust and faith within ourselves. This class will support you on your journey into understanding, knowing, and trusting yourself.
Wind down after a long week with this moving meditation. Slow Flow is a vinyasa-based practice that encourages nervous system relaxation, muscle tension release, and mind/body connection. What to expect: music to enhance the experience, longer held asana, encouragement to “move like you,” and instruction in Sanskrit and English. What to not expect: Most (but not all) arm balances and inversions. Downward facing dog (adho mukha savasana) is an inversion!
This is an open dance class that uses breath, creative movement and restorative yoga techniques to explore yoga philosophy in the body. It is supported by a wide range of music from around the world and designed for both dancers and non-dancers to be able to use playful inquiry for healing in body, mind and soul. The class is a funky, sacred and inspirational way to be engaged with our often fragmented multi-dimensional selves through the spirit of free form dance.
“The Beginners class is very organized and allowing of your own pace/growth.
This class integrates intuitive and improvisational movement with structural exercises through a body-centered dialogue to understand body organization, emotional expression, and relational patterns. Samuel will lead you through techniques that assist you to awaken and inhabit your body and guide you in exploring developmental movement patterns like rolling, crawling, reaching, and stretching. Throughout the class Samuel weaves in story, poetry, and embodiment practices to support a deeper and more meaningful practice.
“Samuel’s classes showcase his holistic integration of mind/body/soul by showing class members how to express emotions through the movement practice. I always feel a sense of release after his classes; even on days when I’m holding onto a lot, I am able to find a sense of play that helps me let go.
Come to our beautiful and spacious historic studio, celebrating over 20 years in the heart of Downtown Lawrence to experience vibrant, sacred, and heart-filled movement.
