In this workshop, we will dive deep in the body for two days of movement -- flesh, blood and bone. Then, we will sink further into the inescapable, inevitable, and enduring heart for two days of emotional movement and awareness. Two days Waves; two days Heartbeat. Six teachers join together to collaborate and collectively guide your journey.

“My passion as an artist and art conservator, combined with my experiences in yoga and meditation and my eclectic love of music continue to enrich my practice of the 5Rhythms movement meditation. From the moment I stepped into the 5Rhythms, I knew that I had been called home.” Peter lives in New York City.
“I believe in the intuitive wisdom of the body and teach 5Rhythms as a path to healing through deep communion with the incarnate self. I am passionate about life, about love of self and other, and about honoring the gifts that come through each of us.” Ann lives in Charlottesville, Virginia and teaches regularly in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC.
“Out of the blues, 5Rhythms rolled into my life, seduced me and gave me colors. Its waves caught me in its riptide, I fell in love and found my breath. It is my medicine, my language, my element, my Ariadne thread. Now after years of diving, I am delighted to offer this wonderful practice to you.” Emmanuelle lives in Portland, Maine.
“From a very early age, I was told that a man was not supposed to cry, and that the way to gain respect was through violence. Today, I take the impulse of violence to the dance floor, and my weapons of choice are my music, my feet, my sweat, my heart, and the map of 5Rhythms.” Ray lives in Bronx, NY where he also teaches power yoga and spinning (stationary bike).
