Health RHYTHMS: Drumming for Wellness w/Cynthia Maltenfort (Fairfax)

  • Sun & Moon Yoga – Fairfax 9998 Main Street Fairfax, VA 22031 (map)

HealthRHYTHMS swaps out the yoga mat and uses a drumming circle as the basis for the time-honored healing practices of breath work, gentle movement, and meditation. It also provides an introduction to drumming, and the multi-faceted functions of sound to help clear the mind and release stress. The program is an established and research-based system that works with the body, mind and spirit to free up energy for creativity, communication and community. It can be integrated as a therapeutic strategy in group counseling sessions, support groups, rehabilitation centers, schools, hospitals, aging facilities and more. On a deeper level it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others. Bring your own drum, shakers, rattles and/or anything you have to add to our community music making. No worries if you don't have anything – several instruments will be provided. No prior music or drumming experience is necessary to join in the fun.
