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.

Upcoming Workshops

Heartbeat : The Heart is a Compass

New York - 15 Feb 2019 to 17 Feb 2019
Peter Fodera - The Moving Center New York

Heartbeat : The Heart is a Compass

The heart does not comprehend boundaries and, like a compass, It only points in the direction that feels 'true.'

In this workshop we will explore the breath and gift of our emotions. How can we provide space in our bodies for emotions to move through us? How can we use our heart as a compass to navigate the waters of our emotional body?

Emotions are fluid and Heartbeat is an opportunity to creatively explore our instinctive, intuitive and embodied responses. By moving with our emotional bodies rather than denying, resisting or pushing them down, we physically experience our feelings rather than think them. Holding on is exhausting....Letting go is full of possibilities. By surrendering our bodies to the dance, we release what is being held in our hearts, discover a greater awareness and find a more courageous way to live and love.


Embody Your Flow

New York - 30 Mar 2019 to 30 Mar 2019
Ariel Karass - The Moving Center New York

 This 5Rhythms workshop will be centered around deepening our relationship to what Gabrielle Roth saw as the essential & first building block of her work, 

the rhythm of Flowing.

Flowing, as it sounds, is rounded, continuous, curvaceous, unpredictable and feminine in nature. Connected to the element of earth, flowing is the grounding rhythm. We begin in the here and now with ourselves as we are and take the time to check in. 

How does the body feel? How does the heart feel? What do we sense around us and can we be receptive to the messages? How can we mother ourselves, and nurture the spirit within?

We let the answers appear through movement, allowing the dance to reveal the pathway in. 

Flowing asks us to enjoy the embodiment of our own weight in motion. The play between gravity and movement, the curve between our roots & our momentum.

The gateway to flowing is through our feet. Learning to listen and connect to our feet, our earth, our ground, helps us to trust our inner wisdom, our intuition. 

This workshop is an invitation to explore, play, learn, discover and expand awareness around the magic of Flow, and how to connect to flow within the other 4 rhythms of the 5 rhythms practice.
