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.


Tribal Heart - Wisdom Of The Womb workshop for women

London - 1 Jul 2018 to 1 Jul 2018
Katarzyna Kat Pugowska


The womb is the seat of power in a woman's body, the gateway to her own deep knowing. ... How connected are you to your womb? Do you live and dance with an awareness of its intelligence?
~ Where do you come from?
~ What’s behind you, who is beside you and who is in front of you?
~ What are your surroundings like?
~Where do you belong to, now?

On the 1st July WISDOM OF THE WOMB 5Rhythms ® workshop for women we will be tuning into the interconnectedness we are embedded in, exploring the possibility of movement in the bigger web of dancing threads of our relations.This workshop is an invitation to come home to your body. To find self-love and ease in your body. From this place, the powerful flow of our life awakens. Together we will dance, using the map of the 5Rhythms ® (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness) to ground ourselves in our bodies and to connect with our wombs. We will use this knowledge to heal and experience a new feeling of power and possibility.
