Upcoming Workshops

Ecstatic Soul Sessions

London - 3 Mar 2018 to 15 Dec 2018
Nikki Ashley - Ajay Rajani

True Ecstasy is not a fleeting moment of euphoria. True ecstasy is when the body, heart, and mind are aligned in conscious awareness and aliveness. Through this connection, the essence of who we are, our soul, is revealed.

Dancing is a potent and embodied way of accessing ecstatic states of being, connecting us to the depths of all that we are as human beings. We feel our aliveness, in all its guises, the pleasure and the pain, the tears and the joy, the mundane and the downright funky.

The 5Rhythms map guides us to discover ourselves more deeply by moving from Flowing to Staccato, through Chaos into Lyrical and back into Stillness from which all movement comes. 

As Gabrielle Roth said: "Ecstasy is not an idea, a goal, but it can be the expectation of everyday. Those times that we are grounded in our body, pure in our heart, clear in our mind, rooted in our soul, and suffused with the energy, the spirit of life, are our birthrights."

Ecstatic Soul Sessions are an invitation to dance and to remember who we are. They are a five hour Saturday daytime sessions, and include a tea break. All dancers welcome. 

Nikki and Ajay trained together with Jonathan Horan, 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. St Peters Church is the home of Sweaty Thursdays, a very popular weekly 5Rhythms drop-in class, set up and run by Christian de Sousa, with Ajay & Nikki now joining Christian on the facilitation team. 


This workshop will count towards the 5Rhythms Teacher Training Waves prerequisites.


Spirit Body

Norfolk - 19 Oct 2018 to 20 Oct 2018
Jason Rowe

The 5Rhythms is a gateway to spirit.

We’ve been taught how to carry the head by our feet and yet little explored the vast wilderness in between.

In this evening and day workshop we’ll dance the Waves map investigating the different energetics that organically exist within the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness to embody our human physicality. We’ll move with this embodiment to experience that we are more than just a body, expanding and empowering ourselves in co-creation with spirit.

'You are not in the body, the body is in you.' Gabrielle Roth

Friday 19th October 19.30pm to 21,30pm
Saturday 20th October 11 am to 5pm.
Please bring a light lunch to share, if you would like to.

£70 standard
£55 low income, concs.
