New York

For 20+ years, the streets of New York City have been Gabrielle & Jonathan's laboratory, daily community, and the inspiration that is the 5Rhythms body of work and vision.

Our NYC teachers service the dynamic, diverse and dedicated tribe you could expect to make their way onto our dancefloors here. It provides a refuge of rhythm for those who are hungry to maintain a real self within the creative pulse, urban edge, and tribal soul of Manhattan. There is no more exciting place on earth, as it perfectly mirrors the complexity and challenges we face when we look within. Our NYC offerings of daily classes, short and long form workshops are available to dance you through all levels of the 5Rhythms every year.

 Breath Work + 5Rhythms® InBodyment Somatic Journey. 

May 2nd - May 30th


About the Course

  Our body is a living map of all the experiences we’ve ever had. Throughout life, it so happens that in order to survive and “fit in” we often times limit our full expression by contracting and suppressing the flow of energy. 

We all remember times when we were told to stop talking, to behave, to not cry when we were sad, to get a hold of ourselves when we were scared, and times when our words got stuck in our throats for the fear of being misunderstood, and so on. Over time these contractions become habitual and interfere with the natural flow of energy in our bodies and energetic fields, we turn into masterful suppressors, disconnect from our feelings altogether, or are so dysregulated that even a small trigger pushes us over the edge.    


In this course we will be weaving breath and movement together in order to open up the space in the body, release those contractions and restore the natural flow of energy. This in turn awakens joy, aliveness, passion for life, and resilience that is rooted in self-love and we are able to live and create with calm and ease. 

       Through the 5Rhythms® map, you will practice the art of listening through the body.  You will explore, discover and uncover hidden parts of yourself in your flesh and bones, reignite your body’s wisdom, deepen your emotional intelligence, and alchemize duality in the body, heart, and mind. Metamorphose into a new form and shape, release the old conditionings by embracing the shadow, and come back to your true essence with more clarity and curiosity.

Transforming your suffering into art, art into awareness, awareness into action.

Healing happens through the connection and alignment of the body, heart, mind, soul, and spirit.

Breath is a force that inspires us, enlivens us, and embodies us in this human form. Through the practice of Breath-Work, you will learn how to listen to your breath and be guided by it, how to deepen the connection with all of the layers of your being and discover the vastness of who you are, how to infuse your breath with whatever quality you desire to invite more of, how to regulate your nervous system, increase energy levels, relax deeper, sleep better, sharpen focus and much more. You will go into practices that encourage the deep release of stored-up experiences that are no longer serving you positively and go through a powerful cleansing process to bring more freedom to your breath.

       Our intention for this course is that you may experience the power and potential that the breath and movement hold. And start developing an ever-deepening connection to them.

 Week 1: 

(Earth / Body- Let it in)


You will explore your natural breath and movements that are harmonious to its flow. 

And get to know your unique breathing patterns.

You will move into the somatic exploration of the first rhythm of Flowing.

Open with curiosity and trust to the wisdom of the body, and the energy that flows through it, letting it unlock the stagnation and encouraging the fluidity of your being.

Week 2:

(Fire/Heart – Let it out) 

  Through the breathwork you will be activating the three main centers of the body: The navel, the heart, and the third eye.

Through 5R somatic movement, you will explore the second rhythm of Staccato 

Where you shift from separation to connection.

From disconnection to expression.

From shutting down to opening up and expressing the heart and its feelings,

through whole body articulation. 

Week 3: 

(Water/Mind- letting go)


This week the practice of the movement and the breath will merge together.

Through shamanic breathing and the exploration of the third rhythm of chaos. 

You will connect to your primal nature, and use your breath, voice, and body to get wild and release unapologetically. 

Week 4: 

(Air/Soul - Letting go of letting go)


This week as you fully metamorphose into a beautiful butterfly you will take a flight into your essence and enjoy the playfulness of existence. 

Week 5: 

(Ether/Spirit- let it be)


Here we arrive into the eternal present moment. 

Stillness, where opposites merge and we become whole.

Where you integrate the whole journey of healing.

Arrival of the natural ending to everything we begin.

Breathing in humility and breathing out gratitude. 


Transform!: Moving with Grief and Loss

New York - 12 May 2023 to 14 May 2023
Karen Ritscher - Peter Selwyn

 To lose someone or something we love, or to let go of our cherished dreams, is an intrinsic part of being human. However, our reactions to these life challenges are unique to each of us. We are living in a time of great chaos, upheaval and grief. We may be experiencing numbness or isolation, as we feel the natural human emotions of sadness, love, anger, fear and confusion.

How do we move forward with grace and self-compassion during this time of difficult transitions?

In this residential workshop we will use the tools of the 5Rhythms® Waves and Heartbeat Maps, as well as offer a process of grief work often referred to as "Externalization." Developed by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, this "deep-dive" Exploration can include simply witnessing, or possibly releasing feelings through verbal as well as physical expression.

We will come together in a safe space to help heal and possibly transform our life experiences into greater wholeness, opening us to an even deeper embodiment and connection to our selves and each other.
