About 5Rhythms®

Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® is a movement meditation practice that aims to explore and release the physical, emotional, and spiritual energy that resides within each of us.

The practice is based on five universal rhythms – Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness – that reflect different qualities of movement and energy. Through these rhythms, participants are invited to move and dance freely, without judgement or expectation, in order to access their authentic selves and connect with the present moment.


Who the workshop is for

For those who want to increase their appreciation, gratitude and happiness while celebrating life and all its wild wondrous, natural beauty.


This workshop is open to all ages, genders and physicalities.

What will you learn

Maps hold all the information that is required for us to step into the places we want to go. What is your current destination? Discover this and more through the power of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® movement practice. 


Not only will you learn powerful tools for better balance, ease and joy – you’ll develop a deeper sense and ability to articulate your feelings and increase your capacity to listen, witness and react to others with compassion.


By resourcing and rediscovering your authenticity and creativity, this workshop provides an opportunity for greater sense of trust and joy.


Over the course of the workshop, Douglas  will invite you to experience:

  • Movement
  • Group sharing
  • Sensory awareness practices
  • Leadership exercises
  • Didactic instruction


You will also take the time to participate in the community’s rhythms and tasks, also known as Love in Action.

Your Workshop Leader

Douglas Drummond

Douglas Drummond is a teacher of the 5Rhythms® for over 10 years. He has worked with groups facilitating embodiment in workshop settings, music festivals, online courses and regular in-person classes internationally.

Douglas’s primary philosophy is that we are multifaceted beings that at-times lose our way when under stress and misaligned actions. Instruction is as much about teaching as it is a reminder of what we already know through activating our instinct and intuition.
