New York

For 20+ years, the streets of New York City have been Gabrielle & Jonathan's laboratory, daily community, and the inspiration that is the 5Rhythms body of work and vision.

Our NYC teachers service the dynamic, diverse and dedicated tribe you could expect to make their way onto our dancefloors here. It provides a refuge of rhythm for those who are hungry to maintain a real self within the creative pulse, urban edge, and tribal soul of Manhattan. There is no more exciting place on earth, as it perfectly mirrors the complexity and challenges we face when we look within. Our NYC offerings of daily classes, short and long form workshops are available to dance you through all levels of the 5Rhythms every year.

“‘Thank you’ is the best prayer anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude,humility, understanding.” – Alice Walker

Gratitude is a practice. Thanks may happen fast and furious,or few and far between, with or without our awareness that we are indeed practicing gratitude. Embodied gratitude is a practice we can follow with every step, every rhythm, every dance, everyday-to-day motion.

In this one-day workshop, we’ll follow the 5Rhythms® Waves map, allowing the time to investigate, communicate, innovate, elevate, and appreciate our relationship to gratitude. We’ll dance with how it moves freely,when it holds back, the ways in which it is received or refused, how we can create, reflect, and rest in thanksgiving, setting a grateful foundation as we enter into the holiday season, into the end of another year, into the new with love.


Heartbeat : Anatomy of Emotions

New York - 21 Feb 2018 to 25 Feb 2018
Peter Fodera - Erik Iversen

“Your body is the ground metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence...”  -Gabrielle Roth

Everything that we experience in life is reflected in our bodies. Our emotions and thoughts are directly connected to our body parts and the history of these experiences shape and define our posture and form.  We all have unconscious physical muscular patterns in our bodies, which are the representation of unresolved emotional experiences. By connecting to these patterns consciously through movement, and then learning to complete the natural emotional response, we can release those unconscious patterns in our bodies.

Join us as we explore these emotional landscapes with kindness, curiosity and compassion.
