Upcoming Workshops



Ready? Set. Flow!

Berkeley - 20 Sep 2019 to 22 Sep 2019
Sayrah Garrison

What if you woke up tomorrow to find you were living your best life possible? What would your life look like and how would it be different from today?


In this 3 part series, we will use the map of the 5Rhythms to explore these important questions and will use potent exercises designed to help us achieve our life goals! 


There will be a 30-45 minute ZOOM call scheduled before & after each workshop to support each dancer in their inquiry.


Reading assignments from Connections by Gabrielle Roth & The Call by Oriah Mountain Dreamer will be offered as support on our journey and will be reviewed during the ZOOM call prior to each workshop.


Sayrah Garrison draws from over a decade of experience as a Clinical Social Worker with trainings in Yoga, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Mindfulness Based Stressed Reduction (MBSR) to name a few. She has worked extensively with at risk youth, adults with co-occurring disorders (substance use & mental health issues), individuals with severe mental illness (psychosis) and other marginalized populations. She is the founder of Deep Dive Oakland, and has been teaching a weekly 5Rhythms class in Oakland for almost 5 years.

INSPIRED DARKNESS

San Francisco - 21 Sep 2019 to 21 Sep 2019
Vehllia Tranne - Alessandro Moruzzi

Autumn Equinox Celebration.
Dance. Prayer. Ritual.
Master Class.

Join us!

Stepping into growing darkness.

Daylight will get shorter and shorter after a moment of equal duration.

We'll be celebrating this passage preparing our body and our spirit for this recurring seasonal winding down. Expressing gratitude for the bounty of the harvest, shedding the dry leaves of our soul, welcoming the inspiration that lies in the darkness.

We'll be dancing the unknown, the change, the let go and the discovery. Wave after wave. Together.

No Prerequisites. The hours of this class qualify for the Waves requirement for the 5Rhythms Teacher Training.
