About us

I was born and grew up in London with a love and need to dance from an early age.  However I came across many shadows in the dance scene that nourished my insecurities of not being "right". At 21 I left the UK for Italy where I still live. My restless searching ended when I found the 5Rhythms practice which led me the way to finding my own dance and has held me ever since through many deep dances teaching me to trust and let go.

5Rhythms is a movement meditation practice devised by Gabrielle Roth in the late 1970s. It draws from indigenous and world traditions using tenets of shamanistic, ecstatic, mystical and eastern philosophy. It also draws from Gestalt therapy, the human potential movement and transpersonal psychology.

My previous trainings in dance, dance therapy and shamanism come together very naturally and nourish my passion to share the 5Rhythms.

I live in the Tuscan hills at one with nature and travel teaching classes and seminars all over Italy. I also run reatreats led myself and other teachers of 5Rhythms and other practices that nourish one and other. In some of the worlds most beautiful places creating a protected and sacred space to find peace and shift old patterns.
