Wikipedia’s description of 5Rhytms: 

5Rhytmsis a movement meditation practice devised by Gabrielle Roth in the late 1970s.[2] It draws from indigenous and world traditions using tenets of shamanisticecstatic, mystical and eastern philosophy. It also draws from Gestalt therapy, the human potential movement, and transpersonal psychology. Fundamental to the practice is the idea that everything is energy, and moves in waves, patterns, and rhythms.

Roth was a dancer and a musician. In 1977, she founded the Moving Center. The center offers workshops, which according to the website offers to dive deep into the investigation of the 5Rhytms.
