History

Eurythmy was brought into being by the Austrian scientist and philosopher Dr Rudolf Steiner (1861 -1925) in the second decade of the 20th Century. First revealed as a new performing art of movement, its application in the realm of education soon followed. Some years later in 1921 following interest from a number of medical professionals, Dr Steiner indicated that through the metamorphosis of the gestures and movements of artistic eurythmy a therapeutic application was possible. Over the last 90 years, eurythmy therapy has further evolved and developed into a comprehensive movement therapy aiming to restore a state of health and wellbeing to all aspects of our being. From its early home in central Europe eurythmy therapy is now available in countries throughout the world. Further background information can be found here.
