Currently Running

Sundays (Jan 8, Feb 5, Mar 5, 2023)
Moving Meditation ~ Sunday Morning Waves with Layah Jane* (Online)
10 – 11:30am
Location: your home, on Zoom
Tuition: $25 – $10 per class*
Come follow body, breath, and beat into dynamic moving meditation with a virtual circle of other dancing souls. Come access the medicine of putting feet, hips, head, hands, and heart into motion. These classes marry guided facilitation through Gabrielle Roth’s Waves map, with space to connect to our movement practice in our own way. May we be inspired to stretch and strengthen our creative capacity to move with life, and to tap into the embodied wisdom alive in each of us. All movement experience is welcome. Pre-registration is required.

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:

Imagine moving barefoot on the green ground together, the morning sunlit sky arcing overhead, and a gentle warm breeze dancing across our skin.

We are in a grassy and treed meadow by the beach at Ashbridge’s Bay.
We are held by a 5Rhythms Wave of music, our breath, and by the sacred beauty of our surrounding. Pre-registration is required.

  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
