Currently Running

Autumn Waves in High Park w / Elisa
Day:  Sundays, weekly.  Time: 12:30-2:30pm
We will dance a warm-up wave and a main wave.  We will dance with ground, sky, wind, trees, sun and clouds.  You are invited to come and move your body in the ways your body most wants to move.
This moving meditation practice can ultimately help us become more aligned in our thoughts, feelings and actions and become more attuned to the present moment.                  To register, please go to the class page:

  1. Hello Rhondda, I am very interested in trying a 5 rhythms class and wondered if Sundays were the only consistent class going on in Toronto. Thank you….

  2. Hi Cathy … so sorry for the late reply and it was wonderful to meet and dance with you!! At this time, my weekly ground class and Third Thursday ~ Presence series, plus the Deep Waves with Soasis (subbing for Layah) on the last Saturday night of each month are the regular offerings. The Saturday class with Taeji may also return. Best plan might be to check back regularly to the calendar on our site for any updates. See you again soon! Love, Rhondda
