Upcoming Workshops

Ecstatic Soul

London - 18 May 2019 to 16 Nov 2019
Nikki Ashley - Ajay Rajani

Ecstatic Soul is a journey and it is a state of being 

Ecstatic Soul is a state of being, when body, heart and mind are aligned in conscious awareness and aliveness. We can go there through dancing the 5Rhythms. True ecstasy is not a fleeting moment of euphoria, it is the pleasure and the pain, the tears and the joys, the mundane and the down right funky – a state of being in authentic embodied movement. 

Our journey is a series of 5Hour Saturday daytime workshops and two longer weekend workshops throughout 2019. They are stand alone events or you can take the whole or part of the journey with us. 

Each 5Hour workshop will be co-facilitated by Nikki and Ajay. It will have a theme, which we will explore through the 5Rhythms and other embodiment tools. There will be a break, and plenty of time to take this through a longer dance – you are encouraged to go at your own pace. 

The weekend workshops will take you on a deeper exploration of the 5Rhythms: Ecstatic Body in July with Nikki & Ecstatic Spirit in November with Ajay Beginners and experienced dancers are equally welcome in all Ecstatic Soul journeys.

Nikki Ashley and Ajay Rajani are accredited 5Rhythms teachers and members of 5RTA. They trained together with Jonathan Horan, son of Gabrielle Roth, in 2014. They have been studying closely under Christian de Sousa for the past 8 years and are aligned in the same passion to cultivate a rich and dynamic community in London. 

These workshops  will count towards the 5Rhythms Teacher Training Waves prerequisites.



Leeds - 15 Jun 2019 to 16 Jun 2019
Ben Deutsch

*** Unfortunately we have had to cancel this event. It will be rescheduled for a later date ***

Do we dance for ourselves or do we dance for the world? Would it be OK to let our untamed, uncivilized animal side show up on the dancefloor? If we did, could it help us to tune in to our intuition, to fly with our imagination, to hunt down some wild inspiration?

This weekend workshop is an invitation to dance with the wild part of yourself, and to call in the wisdom and medicine of the animal kingdom.

Over the course of the weekend:

- dolphin will encourage us to dive deep,
- raven will encourage us to take the higher view,
- snake will encourage us to shed old skins,
- deer will encourage us to move lightly on the Earth,
- wolf will encourage us to hunt our true desires.

There'll be time to call in the animals that you want to work with, and to see which animals call to you. We'll explore moving as part of a pack and as a loner.

This workshop is suitable for people of all ages and abilities, and for new and experienced dancers.
