Four Eurythmy Lessons

by Cynthia Hoven

The Biodynamic Association is grateful to Cynthia Hoven for sharing her depth of work and years of experience as a Eurythmist with the biodynamic community through our conferences.

For the 2020 Online Biodynamic Conference, Cynthia thoughtfully crafted these instructional videos for the conference community and has generously agreed to make them available to the wider community as a free online education resource. We hope these will nourish you, and inspire connection to the practice of Eurythmy.
