Rachel Kurtz

Certified 5Rhythms Teacher
I completed the training with Gabrielle in 2001 and ran a weekly class in Newcastle upon Tyne and occasional workshops for more than 10 years while my daughters were growing up. At the same time I co-founded the Bare Toed Dance Company,  teaching and performing movement and aerial dance for children and families in the north east of England.

In 2012 I began a degree course at Durham University, which led me to research for a PhD in Embodied Learning through their School of Education.

My research explores ways of embedding movement and physical awareness into classroom practices for both children and teachers in mainstream English primary schools. It draws together several different threads of interest: dance, working with children and academic research, with each informing the other.

I currently teach classes in Newcastle, Cumbria, Darlington and Durham, and occasionally longer workshops too.

My 5 Rhythms work draws strongly on neuroscience and a variety of creative disciplines - in longer workshops I often use paint, writing, music and other media. I also love to work in nature. I am particularly interested in levels of relationship, shadow work and supporting deep transformation through regular practice.
