Dear dance community,
what i can offer with these current NSW regulations is an online class on Thursday nights for an hour and a half of intentional embodied deliciousness. Being with ourselves, however we show up, self-regulating, feeling, moving, unsticking… all in the direction of being more of our radical unique authentic selves. This is a platform where we can connect, resource and practice together. This will never replace us all being in the big sweaty pulsating dance room together, hopefully we will be back there in December?… and in the meantime, this is something.
5Rhythms® on zoom
from wherever you are
Thursday’s 7 – 8.30pm
This is an invitation for you. Your time, body time, focused time, showing up for yourself… within the supportive connection of community… that priceless connection. There will be an embodied exploration. Leading into a guided wave through the 5Rhythms. Full permission for sounding, feeling and being with it all… whatever ‘it’ is, as it appears and unravels through our attention. I encourage you to have your camera on and lights up so you can be seen if that is possible for you, your presence makes a difference. We will get through this together.
St Johns School Hall
* This in-person class on pause until the current NSW restrictions
lift and we can all be back on dance floor together
A deep medicine journey of breath, blood, sweat and bones.
Ride the weekly waves together ~ all welcome, suitable for all bodies.
I feel immensely grateful to have the opportunity to explore with you what is happening inside us, on the dance floor. To explore our humanity, capacity for embodiment and reconnection to our truest vital authentic selves. Together, in community. I acknowledge that this takes curiosity, courage, perseverance and relentless kindness… showing up with what ever there is. A constantly changing field of possibilities.
I love that you are coming to dance and look forward to welcoming you onto the floor.
5Rhythms® is a Movement Meditation.
A practice of being raw and real in the body;
a medicine dance, an inquiry, an invitation.
“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood.
Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ~Rumi
A felt sense ~ in-person open class
Wednesday’s from 1st December 2021
Mevlana Hall, Myocum
An in-person morning class for folk who want to explore a focused somatic flavour of the body, the nervous system and the brain chemicals that make us feel good. Oh yeah they do, and we can bring them on! This class is open to everybody, yet numbers are strictly limited so booking is essential.
With the nervous system as our foundation, this class is an invitation into the subtleties of our human experience. A practice of cultivating somatic intelligence and deepening capacity for self regulation, on & off the dance floor. Through physical awareness and movement inquiry we turn toward the refuge of our embodiment to increase balance, resiliency and freedom. Where we become our own medicine.
“Geash’s classes are an exceptional highlight! They offer the perfect platform to completely unwind and reset the nervous system in a creative organic way. It is unique and therapeutic. I highly recommend these classes!” ~Devi Kuebli, Body Oriented Psychotherapist

Whatever experience, age, shape, condition, state, all people are wholeheartedly welcome.
“Amazing sharing space in the womens series. Really interesting mixing somatic experiencing and the nervous system in. A great support in my life.” ~Sharon, mum
“Geash’s embodiment as a facilitator is very special. She sensitively, intuitively and authentically guides us deeply inwards.” ~ Erin, teacher
“Geash holds a space where everything (all of me) is welcome.” ~ Liz, artist
“Thank you Geash, for all that you do in providing us with a safe, deep, grounding & nurturing space on the dance floor where we are free to openly express our feminine & heal our soul.
I can honestly say I have not, to this day (Yin Yoga comes most close!), gone so deep into a healing space, as I have with Geash’s ‘With our Sisters’ dance sessions. And I’ve been in the healing game for years! So thank you so much again Geash, you are a true facilitator of the healing process through & through.” ~Paula
“Many thanks for a truly awesome experience held by you this last 6 weeks. I have been searching for many years for the thing that can help me on my journey, I’ve spent loads of money and loads of time. And now I have found the most incredibly deep journey of movement and embodiment…. Through you and your work. Wow. Thanks universe.” ~Lisa
“In this class i feel safe and held to be totally how i am in each moment and that is infininly relaxing for me.I hadnt danced for years due to pain and limitations, after only a few classes i couldnt believe the range of movement i was getting in my body and incorporating into my life without effort or push.” ~Naomi
“To dance in the morning is a gift to yourself. No matter how you may be feeling, the transition from outside to inside is guided with grace and absolute presence by Geash. To dance just one rhythm each week was amazing and gave me a very different understanding of the essence and wisdom of the 5Rhythms. The energy and depth of the class always moved me in a positive way, and I felt ready to meet the rest of the week.” ~ Bubaloo
“I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to dive deeper into the 5Rhythms with Geash. There is something so deliciously magical about beginning the day through dance and movement. I seem to glide through my days afterwards and feel held by those attending the class and journeying with me. Geash is such an amazing treasure. She teaches through her heart, coming from a place of authenticity and incredible experience. I highly recommend her morning classes to anyone wishing to invite more joy into their lives and relish in the gift of life.” ~ Malia
Info for coming to class…
Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
Wear comfortable clothing, layers are good to adjust as you warm up and cool down.
Dance barefoot or in dance shoes, beware of slippery socks.
Go at your own pace. Be responsible for the well being of your own body, aware of any injuries or limitations.
Practice staying open to how you feel, moving how you feel and being open to this changing.
There is nothing to get right or wrong, no steps to learn. Go with what works for you.
We are all different and that is to be honored and celebrated.
Everybody is welcome! All you need is a breathing body, beating heart and a willingness to move.
Curiousity, courage and compassion are good allies. Give yourself permission to experiment.
This is a practice; a moving meditation; a deep medicine journey of sweat, blood and bones.
“Your body is the ground metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. It is your bible, your encyclopedia, your life story. Everything that happens to you is stored and reflected in your body. Your body knows; your body tells.” ~Gabrielle Roth, founder of the 5Rhythms®
“We dance to shed skins, tear off masks, crack molds,
& experience the breakdown – the shattering of borders
between body, heart and mind” ~Gabrielle Roth
