What is 5Rhythms LiveStream?
5Rhythms LiveStream is a service that provides live streaming of classes that take place in 5Rhythms Studios around the world. The idea came about when the COVID-19 pandemic closed classes and workshops worldwide for weeks and we were looking for a way to stream classes to students, while also respecting the copyrights and fee payments to Musicians.
The service is intended to provide in-home practice when visiting a local class or workshop is not possible and students want to maintain a consistent practice – including traveling for work, for parents who have no baby sitter and need to stay home with children, etc. It is not a replacement for an in-studio practice.
How much does it cost?
There are a few ongoing subscriptions available:
WORLDWIDE | RAVEN in partnership with Raven Recording subscription is available for a $45 charge per month.
THE MOVING CENTER NEW YORK | USA subscription is available to students located in the USA while streaming. The charge is $80 per month and includes access to the WORLDWIDE | RAVEN content as well.
You can cancel your subscription at any time. Cancelled subscriptions do not offer pro-rated refunds for time not used in a given month.
Is this experience the same as going to a class or workshop in person?
We do not want to encourage students to stay home and think of the Live Stream as a replacement for coming to classes and workshops. There is no substitute for being in class with a real teacher and other students.
What is the difference between live and archived classes?
The unique thing about the service is that classes are really ‘live’ and happening in real time. This makes them feel real and intimate. It also is unlike canned yoga and meditation videos where everything is perfect. We have gone to great efforts to provide high quality video and sound to enhance the experience.
The archived classes are rotated out monthly. This allows students in different time zones to take advantage of them if they cannot participate at the live streaming time and also gives students the opportunity to experience other teachers. It may also be useful for those interested in discovering more about 5Rhythms.
