Weekly classes are a doorway into the 5Rhythms, its essential structure and character. They are also a place of practice to embody and ground the deeper work. A remarkable aspect of the Rhythms is that, with very diverse experience and intentions, we can all dance together and all find what we need.
Gathers weekly in Bristol, to connect and support one another to drop deeper in the dance. This is where we expand the experience, comprehension and embodiment of the profound 5Rhythms map.
Workshops take the practice to another level. They are uninterrupted time – often several days, often in a residential setting. The focus allows you to shift and expand the energy and ‘vocabulary’ of your dance. The places this practice takes you are unpredictable and often extraordinary.
Bernadette’s workshops combine different aspects of her work and experience, in unique and powerful ways.
Bernadette also teaches shorter workshops, either in or near Bristol, or by invitation of 5Rhythms organisers elsewhere. Join our mailing list to find out where and when.

Bernadette has been teaching the 5Rhythms dance practice since 1998, and trained in 5Rhythms Heartbeat advanced practice 2005-7. Her approach to the work has been influenced by a number of other profound spiritual practices: principally Isha Yoga, Movement Medicine, Sky Dancing Tantra, Sacred Trust Shamanism and the teachings of Abraham Hicks. She also practices yoga, meditation and Kriya breathwork, which she integrates beautifully into her classes, workshops and training programmes.
