She first worked with Gabrielle Roth in 1991 and has been a full-time student and teacher of 5Rhythms® ever since.

Soul Motion™


 Michael Molin-Skelton performed and choreographed both nationally and internationally for 15 years after receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UCLA. He first met Gabrielle Roth early in 1994. Later that year, at Gabrielle’s request, he began teaching the 5Rhythms. Michael received his 5Rhythms teacher certification in 1998, and his Soul Motion certification in 2001. Michael and his partner, Anneli, have developed spiritweaves ™ which is “a movement inspiration extended to all with an impulse to pray in motion, to dance devotion…spiritweaves ™ is a prayer in progress constantly being birthed out of the 5rhythms® and soul motion™.” Michael has been a 16-year student of continuum montage with Susan Harper, and his teaching of the 5Rhythms and Soul Motion has been greatly influenced by her mentoring.

 Edgar Spieker (Hamburg, Germany) is  a former martial artist, singer, and Nia Black Belt Teacher, he teaches Soul Motion since 2003 in weekly classes and workshops in Hamburg and internationally. His deep passion is to support students to rediscover their bodies through the dance as infinite source of creativity, wisdom and aliveness.

He graduated as Nia Black Belt in 2006. After having been trained as dance therapist, Edgar is now also offering one-on-one dance therapy sessions.

 Viewing life as a dance, Cocréa™ is a continually evolving holistic movement modality intended to bring individuals into strong, empowered, expressive relationships with their bodies. Wren and Antje guide participants into an experiential synthesis of western social partner dance techniques, body alignment and awareness from yoga, bio-mechanics, and physical theater training, physics, and authentic relating practices.  As we hone this dynamic, kinetic toolbox, we emphasize connection, communication, and presence between two people within a community of others. Allowing intuition and feeling to guide the partnership, their centers and frames to support it, dancers listen and respond in the moment, release old and excessive thought patterns, and access profound joy.

Weaving the threads of collaboration, cross-pollination and consciousness, Wren and Antje’s focus is on how dance can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and transpersonal co-creation and transformation.

Eva Gueke for over 20 years now explores and teaches dance with the connection of body, mind & spirit. She has studied Continuum with Emily Conrad & S. Harper as well as Body-Mind Centering® with Bonnie Bainbridge, Lisa Schmidt and F. Tröscher.

WaveWorks-Continuum is a deep movement exploration that will lead you way beyond surface movement. It is a mystic journey, a prayer of the soul, a remembering of deep meaningful places that lie beyond words but that will open the heart. If love lies in the water

WaveWorks guides you on an inner journey to remind your system of its watery origin in the ocean where life sprang forth, working with a set of specific breaths and circular patterns. With easy, delicious wave-like movements you will be able to stimulate fluids, neurological growth and support health and creativity. With sounding, breath and undulating movement we dive deep into our movement meditation. Together we will create a dreamtime continuum that opens hearts and may make you swim in your own loving joyful waters of creation. There is nothing you need to know, the container is safe, just bring yourself, water and your dancing clothes.

The Heart of Silence 

 a 4 Day Retreat, June 18-21 Sonnenstrahl Center, Kisslegg 

In the stillness we empty.  In the emptiness we find silence.  In silence we touch our deepest self

stillness-5It is not in the fullness or chatter or wildness but in silence that we actually come to know ourselves. And yet we are afraid of silence, afraid of emptiness, afraid of stillness. So we stay on the surface, caught in our thoughts and feelings, not connected to the refuge that is underneath. Too often, we end up living disconnected from the refuge of stillness where our true self awaits.

Heart of Silence is a 5Rhythms and Azul dance workshop that will guide us underneath the surface, into the teachings of stillness, where we begin to realize that the emptiness we are afraid of is the refuge we long for. Our nature is empty. It is in this emptiness that we emerge from and return to, in life and death, in thought and feeling. To embrace this essential truth is to allow our divinity to hold our humanity, which is a potent and graceful way to live. This dance workshop is about living our lives in the deep waters of silence.

“I was blessed to be held dancing in a beautiful temple on Maui for 5 dayS by Amara. She pours out the fiercely passionate heart in her teaching practice. I felt guided by her to a deeper intimacy with myself, with others and with the divine. Amara wears her masterful knowledge of the 5Rhythms spiritual practice lightly, but this is a woman gifted with a giant heart and the embodied confidence needed to use that gift effectively. Over these 5 five days, Amara skillfully guided us along a moving path, until we arrived at a resting place of compassionate joy.”  Kieran Kennedy, Los Angeles, CA
