Every year I invite guestteachers in Amsterdam. Why? To inspire us. And that we can dance with other teachers from other countries, other cultures, other perspectives. I try to get these teachers on a regular base so we can built up a relationship with them and their teachings.

Erik Iversen - Montreal, Canada
I’ve been a 5Rhythms teacher, a reflexologist and a practitioner of Hellerwork Structural Integration for close to 30 years. I’ve observed thousands of bodies, both in dancing and through the movement patterns I see in my bodywork practice. From this platform of knowledge, I introduce the building blocks of movement through developmental explorations, core anatomy and structural integration. Once we have a whole sense of our bodies,I facilitate the pathway to enjoyable and expressive embodiment through sensorial discovery, creativity and play.I am fortunate to have co-founded the very first 5Rhythms Teacher’s Training in 1988, and just taught at the most recent Teacher Trainings last years Through this span of years, I’ve continued to be committed to playfully awakening the body-mind connection. My teaching is essentially an invitation and an expression of self–love through dancing, feeling and being.
