Come follow body, breath, and beat into dynamic moving meditation with a tribe of other dancing souls. Come access the medicine of putting feet, hips, head, hands, and heart into motion. These class series marry practical teachings of Gabrielle Roth’s Waves map, with space to connect to our movement practice in our own way. Each series will explore a different theme - inspiring us to stretch and strengthen our creative capacity to move with life, and to tap into the intuitive wisdom alive in us. Classes within a series will build upon each other, allowing for continuity and depth of learning. Pre-registration for these series is strongly encouraged. For those that are unable to participate in a full series, there will be limited drop-in spaces available. Please email the week you are planning to drop-in, to ensure there is space.

Come deepen your personal practice of the 5Rhythms, or dance a Wave for the first time. All movement experience is welcome.

- Water bottle, clothes that are easy to move in, and a cover-up layer (sweatshirt, shawl, etc)

- Musical maps, gentle guidance, and practice tools to help us embody our fluid, focused, free, funky, & fulfilled selves.                                              
- My love of sacred space that invites exploration, expression, experimentation, expansion and emptying through movement.
