This year’s teachers
Ajay Rajani from London (United Kingdom)
Ajay Rajani is an accredited 5Rhythms teacher who trained in 2014 with Jonathan Horan, son of Gabrielle Roth. Ajay was born in Africa with Indian roots and grew up in London, England, where he lives in a diverse, multicultural community and speaks five international languages. His spiritual journey began over a decade ago with an intense practice of seated meditation, which still informs his 5Rhythms classes, where he inspires to embody the moment and allow the body to be its greatest teacher.
Iris Harms from Düsseldorf (Germany)
Already as a child I danced and this continued through all dance styles. Nature attracted me and the free movement. I was a wild and often a quiet child. At that time my essence was already emerging. Movement meditation, music was my salvation, nature my world, family my connection, dreams of travel were realised.
All this is reflected in my personal touch. I like to create connection, to bring people, projects and visions into motion.
Verena Sacher-Graiff from Innsbruck (Austria)
The 5Rhythms were and are for me “love at first dance” — meanwhile more than twenty years have passed and nothing has changed in this love.
After many years of self-exploration in this movement practice — as well as in free art and in art therapy — I am an enthusiastic 5Rhythms teacher since 2014, happy to share my “treasures” with all who want to explore, (re)discover and celebrate their aliveness, passion and inner truth in this dance practice.
It makes me very happy to teach and share this movement practice. All those who enter this space are main actors in their own lives, dancing more and more their own idiosyncratic and authentic dance, becoming more and more radiant and beautiful.
Spaceholder Andreas Ritter (Schwäbisch Gmünd)
The first time I came into contact with the 5Rhythms, I felt that this was it for me. Since then I have been working on myself, on my issues, and I keep finding new aspects. Movement and encounter are essential for me, at work, in my private life and with the 5Rhythms. Even if there are phases when it is difficult for me to feel, I still try to keep at it, to open up again and again and to encounter myself and others in a new and open way. This festival is a matter close to my heart. Children are our future.
