Jeffrey Boynton

Certified 5Rhythms Teacher
In 2001, I moved to New York City to develop and define myself as a Lighting Designer in the architectural field. Rooted in a dance history of modern dance, dance theater and contact improvisation, I found the 5Rhythms through my contact improv peers early in the chaotic transition to life in the city. It quickly became a practice, and getting to a class every week to move what I could not speak or share in any other way became a priority. On the sweaty high vibration dance floor, I found the tools, a new language of the body that started me on a long healing journey in developing my awareness of Soul. The progression to teaching took a long time, finally calling to me in 2011 in the midst of a workshop breakthrough. What followed has been nothing short of total transformation, completely disorganizing life as I know it, sometimes without gentleness, but always with a profound sense of ease. A potent respect and curiosity for mystery and the truth remains. I hope to share some of what I have learned with you, and to learn together, as I step ever deeper onto the edge and into the void, refining and re-imagining life in this body all the way.
