Wake up and dance! In this shorter class we will dance one wave. Invite in the new day into your body and a vibrant flow into your mind. Gently wake up stiff limbs with movement, awareness, and breath. Let your creativity energise you and your wild dance release you. Give yourself a fresh start through connecting with your body wisdom.

5Rhythms® is a holistic movement meditation practice. It is a path to presence, wholeness, and authentic being. The Wave forms the foundation of this practice. It is comprised of five different rhythms, which are a roadmap into exploring our creativity and physical movement. No previous experience necessary. 5Rhythms is suitable for everyone and bodies of all ages, shapes, and sizes.

Karoliina Valontaival holds space with clarity, presence, sensitivity, and heartfulness. She creates a safe and accessible space that welcomes you as you are. This is a drop-in class: no preregistration required. Beginners and new dancers are always welcome!



Single class: 15€ / 13€ students, unemployed, pensioners

Physical limitations are not a hindrance to the dance: you can dance on a chair or on the floor and discover your own style of dancing, even with a physical limitation. 5Rhythms accommodates all levels of physical ability. However do please get in touch with me before hand if you have a major physical limitation.

Mental health: dance and movement are very beneficial for our mental and emotional well-being. If you are or you have recently had a severe or acute mental health issue (e.g. schizophrenia), please read the FAQ in the customer service page and contact me before coming to an open class, so we can ensure a positive experience for all.
