Home Paneurhythmy


Paneurhythmy is a system of psycho-physical exercises, exercised for good health and vitality, applicable for recreation for people of all ages. It was created in Bulgaria in the beginning of the 20th century by Beinsa Douno, philosopher and composer. The word “pan-eu-rhythm-y” literally means good and harmonious rhythm everywhere and in everything, also known as “supreme cosmic rhythm”. The system consists of three parts. The first one is basic with 45-50 minutes duration, named Paneurhythmy. The second and third parts (Sunrays and Pentacle) have 8-10 minutes duration and a more complex choreography. Paneurhythmy is performed in a group, in couples, and in a circle in the centеr of which is the music. It is exercised every morning in the warm seasons, in the open, in natural surroundings. The training in the cold seasons is done indoors.
There are 28 exercise in the first part Paneurhythmy. Each exercise has its specific music, movement and text, performed simultaneously and in correspondence. At the same time each exercise has an idea, which is named in the title, performed with the movement, illustrated with the text. The ideas are universal and may be illustrated with various examples from life – with processes and states in nature, human relations and in the person - our thoughts, feelings, and activity. The first Paneurhythmy textbook says that “the whole life is Paneurhythmy” (1938), so everyone may find examples in line with their understanding and observations. 
This on-line textbook is for the students, who participated in the intensive program. It is illustrated by their photos and drawings. The students’ projects are creative, educational, and part of the program activities, but at the same time the students had fun with them. So it is possible to have some omissions. To make the site more comprehensive and interactive we would be glad to receive your photos and drawings, and they will be added after the administrator’s approval to the respective exercise.
