Eurythmy is a form of movement that Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) developed from 1912 together with Lory Maier-Smits, Marie Steiner-von Sievers and other pioneers.
The word eurythmy consists of the prefix "Eu," the Greek term for "human," and the word "rhythm," which stands for the creative interaction of polarities.
The sounds of the alphabet, which are expressed in gesture and movement through the art of eurythmy, are a systematic expression of the interplay of our inner forces. You can discover these forces in your own body, get them moving and use them for your well-being and in life.
The courses and videos on this site were created to help you to discover these forces in your own body, activate them, and apply them to enhance your life and well-being.

In eurythmy there are actually movements for individual letters and you can use them to express characteristic sounds, tones and moods, even entire words. Depending on how you consciously accompany these movements and experience them internally, you activate other resources and possibilities of expression.
As a school subject, eurythmy is part of the Waldorf education, which was also founded by Rudolf Steiner. As a stage art it belongs to the performing arts. Eurythmy therapy is a form of therapy in anthroposophic medicine and is used for acute and chronic illnesses.
