Sunday October 23, 10 – 11:30am – High Park*

Tuition: $25 – $15 per class

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 forest grove in High Park.
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.

Sundays (Dec 4, 2022)
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.

Sundays – Autumn 5Rhythms  Waves in High Park w/Elisa (Sept. 18, Oct. 2, Oct. 16, Oct. 30)
Tuition: $25 – $15 per class
*Exact locations within the parks will be provided to participants after registration.

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:

Embody ~ 5Rhythms® Waves Classes with Layah Jane*
Wed Sept 14 – Wed Oct 19 (6 week session)
Wed Nov 16 – Wed Dec 21 (6 week session)
Roncesvalles United Church, 240 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto
Pre-registration is required, $35 – $20
What if our bodies could talk? What if we listened?
What if motion brought medicine to what we’ve locked up and lugged around?
5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement meditation practice – a map to reconnect with an innate spectrum of body expression. There are no steps to follow in this improvisational movement methodology. Instead, we show up, tune in and move what is alive in us. This dance is the dance of remembering. Of returning. Of allowing something deeper to move us. This is a 6 week class series. Single classes are available.
Covid protocols include capacity limits, optional masking, and pre-class rapid antigen testing (at home before attending class)

  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
