“A week to pamper, rest and be touched by the natural essence of our wild being. This is a journey into softness and intensity on the same time to restore the strongest sides of ourselves into lightness.”


“Opening the doors to our natural self, organic, sensorial, wild, powerful, sensitive, authentic, touching, smelling, tasting, feeling, celebrating or senses…”


Opening the doors… to our natural self, organic, sensorial, wild, powerful, sensitive, authentic…touching, smelling, tasting, feeling, celebrating all or senses…

Every embodied moment in contact with the elements & the specific qualities of natural places reveals essential teachings to us… Being present… embodied, receptive, taking space, playing with the unknown, feeling our empowerment and honouring our experiences.

5Rhythms, 5 days, 5 Elements.

Our physical & energetic bodies are already and permanently receiving and responding to the multiple environnements stimulus we experience in our daily life.

We are often only few breaths away from feeling and embracing fully the magical and high diversity of perceptions that we are designed to enjoy in our existence as human beings.

Dance is a gateway to relax our mind, energise our body, empower our hearts and give space to our creative souls… at every dance a deeper sense of aliveness blossoming inside one-self.

This retreat  is assisted by Zara Rutherfordcounts for 30 hours of 5Rhythms Waves® as pre-requisite for the 5Rhythms teacher training.

Zara will lighten our bodies after the dance guiding us into therapeutic stretches through gentle AcroYoga and Tai Massage.

A week to dance, explore and rest to reconnect with the natural essence of your true self.

A journey into softness and intensity, a time to ressource the strongest sides of who you really are by exploring the 5Rhythms moving meditation practice in a very unic connection to the pristine wilderness of Sweden.

We will have our dance sessions in a majestuous yoga studio by the lake and our outdoor dance explorations in connection with the elements in the surroundings of Shambala gathering.

The floating deck and sauna, the delicious vegan food, the stillness of the nature, the generosity of Shambala’s team and the joyful care of our dance community will be the perfect setting for this week to deepen your practice of the 5Rhythms.

Be very welcome !
