5Rhythms Teachers

"When I dance, the earth becomes my canvas, my body is like a brush, and my spirit sheds the colors of my soul! Through dance, I create the painting of my life. Transform my joy, suffering and love into art. And this art has become my healing."

Tata Lebanidze (Tata Leban)

Certified 5Rhythms Teacher

 My dance lineage derives from my artistic parents; my mother was a dance teacher for 35 years and my father is a musician. Growing up In an artistic family made me fall in love with music, dance, and art from a very young age. I began dancing when I was 4 years old and haven't stopped since. I graduated with a BFA at The Academy of Fine arts and moved to New York when I was 20 years old.

In 2013, in the midst of a difficult time in my life, I got introduced to the practice by a dear friend. It had a profound effect on me, I dug deeper and watched one of Gabrielle Roth's videos online and was blown away! Gabrielle's nature and spirit reminded me of my mother, who passed away when I was 20.

Gabrielle has inspired me greatly and her 5Rhythms practice soon became my home. I found much healing and discovered my truth and purpose, which was hidden in my bones, in my blood, and in my soul. 

Dance shaped me from the beginning of my existence. 5R has brought me back to my roots and guided me to rediscover myself fully, by remembering who I am and what my purpose is.

The 5Rhythms practice and the 5R community have held me for over 10 years of my life in every difficult time. This dance is powerful medicine, and I carry this lineage with full integrity, with my heart, and in full embodiment. It is truly my soul calling to share this medicine with others and my hope is that I can make an impact and pay it forward.

Darkness becomes a sacred place when we allow ourselves to dance within it, diving for light!
