Layah is a healing artist ~ a teacher, dancer, and musician. Layah first fell for 5Rhythms in her late teens and for the last 20+ years has steeped herself in movement meditation practice. Passionate about offering people sacred space to experience motion as medicine, Layah has facilitated expressive movement since 2003 for all ages on all kinds of dance floors: classes, gyms, offices, barns, fields, and studios, including at Toronto’s conscious dance hubs The Move, and Ecstatic Dance Toronto. Her transformational journeys focus on embodiment, and broadening our physical, expressive vocabulary as a gateway to creativity and healing. Movement and healing mentors include Gabrielle Roth, Lucia Horan, Kathy Altman, Adam Barley, Mia Borodacz, Kim Brodey, and Dany Lyne.
Layah teaches 5Rhythms Toronto’s Saturday Deep Waves (in studio), Sunday Moving Meditation classes (online), and produces workshops with visiting movement teachers.
Informed, inspired and nourished by the natural world, ritual, and making music, off the dance floor Layah is an award-winning Folk/Soul songstress, a student of her vegetable, fruit, and flower gardens, and a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and a hearty lover of life.
