5Rhythms was introduced in Belgium over 20 years ago and we have thriving dancing communities throughout the country.

Since 2001 the own teachers community has been growing and at the moment there are 16 teachers active in both French and Flemisch communities and their activities are complemented by another 10 international guest teachers who visit us regularly.  Still open to a broad input from international teachers worldwide, many dancers from all over Europe and beyound have come along and added a special flavour, feeling at home in this community. What is has to offer : humbleness, grounded, friendly & heartful and diversity.  Wherever you live in Belgium, whether you speak Dutch, French or English, within a one hour drive you can attend several classes around the week, and workshops of all levels, around the year.

 “Sacred Space”

5 weekends

ongoing closed group for women only

in Mortsel (Antwerp)

led in Dutch and English


Both women and men have suffered blockages around intimacy with himself. In this ongoing for women, we go deepen together in eight Sundays in our natural power, our vitale lifeforce, also called libido and with the necessary labels. And we also unconsciously take the beliefs of our parents. How are your parents looking to this energy? Do they honor this natural power? We can purify our womb as a woman of beliefs and of energies that our womb defiled. Our womb is our core, normally a basis of bearing love. Here houses our soul if we consciously can relax in it. From here on, to breathe and to embrace ourselves, gives our heart to possibility to worn by our own source and ensures that it is worn by an warm beloved home. As a result, we are creating our own security to us to surrender to life. To learn to live from our intuition, by trial and error to learn trust. Because there’s nothing to lose, only to gain, more and more to learn to enjoy in the here and now.

It is an energy that is sexually abused all over the world. An energy that evokes a desire with which many of us look outside themselves to fulfill. While it is an energy to honor deeply. If we receive this energy and not abusing it, it heal our body and soul, which gives your spirit space to create for what you come. She gives a unnameable joy of life and it is the core of unconditional love.

We work with different exercises to soften our body, to get more body awareness.

We will bring our focus through excersises on:

Grounding and breath


Sensuality and passion


Surrender into mystery

Inner joy


Releasing our emotions

Brugge - 13 Mar 2020 to 15 Mar 2020
Katrien Mazijn - Jan Redsted

 5 Rhythms® workshop in Belgium with Jan Redsted & Annette Uhlmann from Denmark

Annette Uhlemann & Jan Redsted has been a couple for 30 years and both completed 5Rhythms®Teacher Training with Gabrielle Roth in USA in 2005. The 5Rhythms has not only been their personal path, but also their professional life for the last 15 years. Annette is a trained Heartbeat teacher and worked many years in research, hospitals and rehabilitationprograms. Jan assisted Jonathan Horan at Mirrors & Naked Soul since 2016. They’ve both assisted on the 5R teacher training and are board members of the 5Rhythms® Reach Out (5RRO).      

This waves workshop aims to explore the wonders and challenges of being true to self in relationship. Grounded in the waves off the 5Rhythms® calls to the dance of relationship to oneself, a partner and a group. A moving meditation while witnessing oneself with attention and awareness.

To stay grounded, rooted, centered and true to ourselves while meeting partner, friend, child, parents and colleagues… Inviting Commitment, soul and devotion to have the courage to hold on, be- and move together. Awakening the body and being true to own energy in natural fluidity in FLOWING. In the territory of STACCATO we examine connecting us to others by daring to see and be seen, feeling boundaries and drawing lines – to love and be loved. Staccato is relating and expressing oneself by being focused, direct, clear and heartfelt. Dancing CHAOS breaks us free, throws us into the beat. It liberates from all ideas about who we are and gives a real experience of being total, intuitive and creative. Completing by surrendering to creativity and spontaneous unity in LYRICAL and give space for aliveness and the vibrant feeling of life it self in STILLNESS, remembering the support in long line of ancient roots.
