Shine Your Light this Summer Solstice! 5Rhythms® Moving Meditation/ Dance Introductory Class & Workshop
Longing for greater freedom and peace? Through the dynamic, moving meditation practice of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms®, learn powerful tools to support your ability to empower and deeply accept yourself so you can let your light shine this Summer Solstice! The 5 Rhythms: Flow, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness are a map to ecstasy - a here/now embodied YES to you, your dance as only you can do it. Great world music invites you on a deep, soulful exploration. 5Rhythms® is rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself.
Open to all abilities and levels of experience, this 4-hour transformational journey will leave you feeling empowered, cleansed and uplifted. No experience in dance or meditation needed.

Heeraa offered the space and music to evoke our honesty/authenticity in the present moment... her suggestions were spoken from her Soul... gentle nudges into authentic exploration. ~ Manima Dancosse, Owner, Founder & Bodyworkser at Mana Massage, participant in Let it Go/Let it Be Workshop on Kauai 2015
Usually I prefer to dance by myself, and am not comfortable freeing my body and soul in a group of strangers - but Heeraa has an amazing way of creating a sacred space that feels safe and comfortable for just letting go. Through dancing, I found a way to connect deeply with myself and others. I started the class with a lot of worries and fears weighing down my sense of excitment - but as we moved through each rhythm I could feel layers of self-doubt peeling away. Today I feel lighter both physically and energetically - transformed into a form of lightness that helps me float around the very obstacles that seemed so gigantic before the dance. ~ Krista Nielsen, Literacy Resource Teacher, participant in Let it Go/Let it Be Workshop in Honolulu 2015
Heeraa has a remarkable way of sharing her knowledge of each of the rhythms through her words and her body. Her words and movements encourage you to keep moving, her choice of music is exceptional, the space feels safe and welcoming. She provides the opportunity to truly express and experience the joy of the dance. In participating in the 5Rhythms workshop with Heeraa, I found I could liberate myself from the force of my mind and open my heart to the beauty and love emanating from everything and everyone around me.~ Irobela W., C & C Honolulu, participant in Let it Go/Let it Be workshop Honolulu 2015
It is difficult to put my experience (dancing with Heeraa at the 5Rhythms workshop) into words. I experienced incredible moments of freedom from the bondage of my human ego as well as moments of pride and glory in my humanity! It was tribal and independent; deeply connected to higher self and higher realms, (and fun.) What I have always loved about ecstatic dancing is that one need not be an excellent dancer. Every type of body and skill level is represented, it is glorious. By the end of the 4 hour workshop, we all looked like we had been dancing our whole lives anyway. I would recommend this experience to anyone who loves to express his or her feelings through movement, even if he may be shy, especially if he may be shy! Dancing with Heeraa has always been a safe, beautiful, ecstatic and tender way for me to feel ALIVE! Thank you Heeraa! ~ D. Robinson, nurse, participant in Let it Go/ Let it Be workshop Honolulu 2015
