5Rhythms Teachers

"Love is not a mood but a dynamic way of being. Love is essentially the primal energy of all our emotions flowing, of really feeling and responding moment by moment, situation by situation. -Gabrielle Roth"

Karoliina Valontaival

Certified 5Rhythms Teacher

Karoliina Valontaival is the first and only accredited 5Rhythms® teacher in Finland. She is passionate about creativity, a playful approach to movement, supporting a positive connection with ourselves and our bodies, becoming grounded in our physical bodies, and courageous in our authentic expression of who we are.

She has been dancing 5Rhythms since 2005. She brought 5Rhythms to Finland as a workshop producer in 2012 and trained as a 5Rhythms Spaceholder in 2015. She graduated as a 5Rhythms teacher in 2018 and has been teaching full time since June 2019. 

Karoliina has an extensive and diverse background in science, the arts, and embodied practices and she has worked with groups of all ages for well over a decade. She creates a safe, accessible, and inviting space. Her clear and intuitive guidance, grounded presence, and inspiring music will take you on a journey of discovery. She lives in Helsinki and teaches elsewhere in Finland as well as online.

Classes and workshops are offered in Helsinki, Turku, and Tampere as well as online. Instruction is in Finnish with translation into English, as and when needed. If you are not a Finnish-speaker, please do not hesitate to join a class, and let Karoliina know about your language needs at the latest when you arrive.
