Information on our Monthly 5Rhythms® Practice Session
Beginning in January, there will be a 5Rhythms® practice session every month. The format will consist of warm-up, 5Rhythms® instruction by our facilitator of the month, and unguided practice. We will begin promptly at 8:00 PM, ending approximately at 10:30.

Since there are currently no certified 5Rhythms teachers living anywhere in the DC area, our faculty will consist of a number of certified teachers from up and down the East Coast who have been gracious enough to band together in support of the DC 5Rhythms Tribe and have agreed to provide certified instruction for us on a regular, monthly basis. Special thanks to Tammy Burstein who brought our cadre together.

With the exception of this February and March, all monthly dances will be held on the third Friday of the month. For this year only, we'll have our February and March dance on the fourth Friday.

2009 Dates: Jan 16th, Feb 27th, Mar 27th, Apr 17th, May 15th, Jun 19th, Jul 17th, Aug 21st, Sep 18th, Oct 6th, Nov 20th, Dec 18th

The per session tuition is $20.00, cash only, at the door. You may also save $20.00, support our fledgling effort and purchase our Six Pack Special, consisting of six consecutive sessions for $100.00.

Meet Daniella Peltekova, our Facilitator for January 2009
Bio: Daniella Peltekova comes originally from Bulgaria where the mountains hold a deep tradition of peace, wisdom and spirituality. She became enamored with the 5 Rhythms practice 5 years ago while she lived in Amsterdam, Holland and still held a high-powered corporate job as a technology consultant. Daniella moved to New York City at the end of 2007 to pursue deeper learning from the 5 Rhythms source, qualify as a teacher and begin her journey as a teaching practitioner. She has held classes and workshops both in NYC and in Bulgaria. Following the intuition and creativity of her inner compass, the movement practice has brought her forward to most fulfilling challenges and changes of perception, ways of life and actions of service. Daniella is also a poet and a change agent in organizational development and authentic leadership, weaving it all in an inspiring spiral of continuous learning.

Movement Philosophy: Everything is in a constant movement and flux, the Universe dances its infinite, intricate, beautiful - daily, monthly, yearly - dances and it is of utmost human importance to be able to listen to our own bodies and spirit, move in unison with them and uncover their irrevocable connection to the larger dance of life. Empowered by soul reflection, self-knowledge, roots and fluidity we become fully alive in our practice of 5 Rhythms dance and bring magic forth in our practice of daily life.
