Giving the Body time to Sing

Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens

There is an African proverb that says: “If you can talk you can sing. If you can walk you can dance.” I love this because it inspired me when I felt that I couldn’t do either. Just under twenty years ago I discovered the work of Gabrielle Roth—the 5Rhythms—and this has been a huge inspiration in my life. I have since spent thousands of hours on 5R dance floors all over the world, learning to listen to my body. From here, I started teaching Luna Dance for women which combined free dance with storytelling, myths and the women’s mysteries. I later trained as a Chakradance facilitator and am now an Open Floor teacher, offering various classes to adults and children. 


“The Church says: 
the body is a sin.
Science says: 
the body is a machine.
Advertising says: 
the body is a business.
The Body says: I am a fiesta.”

“Thank you so much for holding such a safe, loving and joyous space for us all to dance within last Sunday. It’s always a gift to move under your wise facilitation – a perfect balance of light hearted play and deep sacred delving. My heart felt so much lighter and more open on my return journey home”
