In his own words:

I first moved to the 5Rhythms® in 1998, I was thirty seven, guarded, fearful and on auto pilot. The rhythms shifted me, shook me up, woke me up and I began to become aware of myself, of my emotions, and my life.

I’d been a shiatsu practitioner for six years, an accountant for many more, and had a long term interest in meditation, but I desperately needed change. Movement was the catalyst my body needed. I stepped into the unknown territory of dance and began to discover my body more fully than I had ever done.

As I dived deeper with 5Rhythms®, I began unfurling inside and out until I managed to fall in love with myself for the first time. My confidence grew. My life began to shift and align more with my passions. My creativity began to develop and I felt myself breathing and living more fully.

Ten years after my first experience with the practice, dedicated to it and still evolving, I trained as a 5Rhythms teacher with Gabrielle Roth, the founder and shaman responsible for developing the Rhythms.




In 2008 I qualified, began teaching, and moved to New York to work alongside Gabrielle in developing 5Rhythms Reach Out, a
charity commited to getting the work out to children, elders, war veterans, cancer patients, addicts and the disempowered.

Since then I’ve taught ongoing groups for the over sixties. Held regular weekly classes, and developed and led numerous residential workshops. Children, elders, the corporate world and drop in classes have been my arenas and learning grounds. I’ve taught in London, Brighton, New York, California, Melbourne, Singapore and Bali.

In 2011 my partner and I travelled for a year in South East Asia, New Zealand and South America. After a short period back in the UK we returned to live in Bali where we are developing a centre, called ‘Hati Suci – Sanctum of the Heart’ where we will offer 5Rhythms and Movement Meditation.

I am a partner, a father, a writer, photographer and lifelong student, committed to changing again and again. I look forward to meeting you somewhere some time on a dance floor.
