The 5 Rhythms Movement and dance meditation is my life's work
The 5 Rhythms Movement and dance meditation is my life's work, I am privileged to be able to teach it to such a diverse audience. It has given me witness to the most profound beauty in humanity.
I have been dancing the 5 Rhythms movement meditation practice for over 25 years and trained with Gabrielle Roth the founder to teach in 2001. My commitment and passion for this unique and dynamic healing art led me to take further advanced study and training to teach the ‘heartbeat’ map of the 5 Rhythms which explores emotion as a dance. Since then I have traveled to different parts of the Globe and London’s suburbs taking the dance to a wide audience of disadvantaged communities, prison, addiction recovery and youth at risk and children living in the slums in Kolkata India.This diverse range of communities has become invaluable in expanding my teaching skills and insight into all walks of life keeping me plugged into a reality of human suffering where this dance can be of real service.
My background is in the Arts, theatre and visual, my approach to the work of the 5 Rhythms is inspired by my passion for the artistic and Soulful threads. I have the privilege of working and collaborating with Lorca Simons with her LiveWire theatre labs. I am currently developing and working with actors in Rome and Naples Italy where I have been developing dancing communities with my producer Massimo Pasante for the past 5 years.
I am also an accredited Heartbeat Level Teacher since 2005
“In the Heartbeat map of the 5 Rhythms we discover our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked away in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings. We learn to Love and see how badly we want it and need it.”
