Movement practice of Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms®

Led by Martina Motl, Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher

with Anže Bertoncelj, Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher


What does your heart need?

How can you listen to it?

What will bring joy back into your life?

In this 5-day workshop we will follow circular maps of 5Rhythms practice, level of working with emotions: fear (Flowing), anger (Staccato), sadness (Chaos), joy (Lyrical), compassion (Stillness).

Many years of experiences in discovering emotions and their healing and beneficial effects have brought me to the point where I am ready to hold the space and support you on your journey of discovering an emotional map. Only when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable can we call more life into our daily lives. More joy. More creative moments. More ecstasy. One is not without the other. When we allow ourselves to replace fear with courage and embody it, the first step has already been taken. Our inner dancer, waiting for permission to shine in his power and spread the wings of inspiration, is hiding in each of us. Layer after layer, we will uncover emotional veils, raise awareness and give them space and time to express themselves and shine in the divine spark of inspiration that we ourselves are. Welcome.

Statements of the participants of the workshop Let the sunshine in 2023:

»Thank you my dear dance teachers Martina Motl in Anže Bertoncelj for this fantastic experience meeting with my heart. Thank you to let us dance as we are, exploring the deepest lands of ourselves, observing, feeling our bodies, and releasing things that no longer serve us. Thank you to hold the safe space for us every second of the way. Martina, you are an amazing woman, powerful yet gentle - magickal and healing. Anže, thank you for your support to all of us in every moment. You feel like a gentle, safe, warm, and soothing breeze.« Polona

"My dear, great teacher Martina Motl. I came to the workshop scattered in 1000 pieces. I want to be happy so much and I know that happiness is a decision. It is a state that I choose myself. It is purity of thoughts and feelings, there is deep peace and love in me. But you took me and supported me in the experience of the opposite of happiness. I realized deep sadness, unhappiness, unfulfillment, pain, anger, fear... It sounds crazy, but only through all this pain... When I opened my heart to the deepest sadness... Joy and happiness could also enter my heart. You taught me to breathe in sadness and pain, anger and fear. I accepted all this, embodied it and gave it space inside me. With your divine support, I listened to what sadness, anger, fear, despair was saying to me... Through movement I touched every feeling or I bravely stepped into the core of this feeling. I allowed myself to be touched by these feelings. I didn't think at all, I just felt and danced. My body embraced all of this and suddenly everything was good and right. Therefore, happiness is not a feeling, nor a state. It's a moment to live fully. It is an energy field in which joy and sadness… clarity and confusion… are priceless parts that embrace, greet and love each other.

Thank you, Martina, for all your knowledge, which you selflessly pass on to us, constantly "tickling" me and supporting me at every moment when I need it. Thank you, Anže, for your gentle holding of space." Andreja

»I feel so inspired by Martina Motl! The 5-day 5Rhytms Heartbeat workshop “Let the Sunshine in” was an amazing journey! Martina is a powerful and passionate teacher. I experienced her teachings as a very deep healing. The 5Rhytms community of Slovenia is warm and joyful. It felt like faling in love and coming home. And the nature of Slovenia is stunning!« Ina Maria

Pre-Registration Required


In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
