Nilaya Sabnis

Certified 5Rhythms Teacher

Nilaya Sabnis is a Bharatanatyam/modern dancer and photographer from New York City who brings to her teaching a body steeped in 15 years of working with the 5Rhythms as a language of artistic expression and spiritual alchemy, as well as a decade long professional dance career touring with Cirque du Soleil, Madonna and AR Rahman. Nilaya was first introduced to the 5Rhythms and its founder, Gabrielle Roth, in 2003 as a modern dancer auditioning for the experimental theater production that GR was directing at the time. Over the next ten years, their relationship evolved from dancer+director to editor+poet to creative assistant+visionary to young woman+mother-figure and now, artist+muse. In 2017, Nilaya was trained to teach the 5Rhythms by Gabrielle's son Jonathan. In equal measure as an artist and a 5Rhythms teacher-in-training, Nilaya continues to venture into her own voice in humble alignment with Gabrielle's vision of spreading the healing power of art and the art of healing to as many bodies and souls as possible.
