5Rhythms workshop in the heart of the nature

Osmosis, a 4 days retreat with the 5Rhythms Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness and the inspirations of the natural world.

Every ecosystem and biotope works with the dynamics of codependency and collaboration. The phenomenon of symbiosis and osmosis can be experienced as human beings as well.

Vibrant beneficial aspects of being highly receptive and expressive can be at service in our everyday life. By co-creating together safe and inspiring containers we will explore and empower these wisdoms that are already deeply rooted in our body.

The Osmosis retreat is an invitation for you to move and be present with the possibilities of permeability in your relation to your environments, nature and other alive beings.

Cultivating specific qualities of attention by using movement and our senses to embrace the imprints the world is offering to us. Practicing our ability to engage our focus with one aspect or another to give a personal quality to our experiences. Unveiling our expression to make visible to ourselves and others the richness and diversity of the feelings and perceptions that inhabits us.

The 5Rhythms map from Gabrielle Roth will be the movement tools for embodiment and the organic explorations in connection with the human & elemental nature will be the relational gateways to transform and collect the qualities each person wants to nurture in their everyday life.


  • Two 5Rhythms waves workshop per day.
  • Specific exploration for each rhythm.
  • Elemental explorations in nature.
  • Moments of contact (dance/massage/words) respecting your pace and boundaries.
  • Dj set & live music.
  • Time to relax and be (in) nature.
  • This retreat counts as 18 hours of Waves® as prerequisites for the 5Rhythms teacher training.


  • Higher understanding of the 5Rhythms map and its role in your everyday life.
  • More confidence in the body and in your ability to take space.
  • Release of stress and tensions.
  • Wider perspective on your personal projects.
  • Tools to use the wisdom on the dance back home.
  • Deeper sense of connection to nature and others.


Created by the American artist Gabrielle Roth (1941-2012) and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. 

Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. 

Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.

Creativity. Connection. Community.

The meeting will take place in Krásná in the Beskydy Mountains. Krásná is a place to meet in a friendly family atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. The chalet was built with the intention of hosting various events where different cultures and stories meet.

Krásná is located in a secluded area in the middle of the Beskydy forests below Lysá hora. It is an ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries. A bath in the icy river or a walk through the forest will allow you to blend in with nature.

On the first floor there is a large open space with views of the surrounding countryside, a kitchen and an outdoor terrace. On the second floor there is a large open sleeping area with a viewing terrace.


Pillows and mattresses are available in the area. Mattresses and sheets are available for sleeping. Bring a sleeping bag and towel.


You will be taken care of from morning to night, from breakfast to dinner. You can look forward to vegan cuisine and seasonal-inspired delicacies that you can’t just make at home.

The path to us:

If you will be traveling from abroad, let us know and we will help you find the right transportation.

Generally, you are trying to get to the nearest big city Ostrava (CZ). There is also the possibility to go to Brno (CZ) and then from Brno to Ostrava. Both have small local airports and international train connections.

Or you can also go to close big cities outside the Czech Republic: Viena (Austria), Bratislava (Slovakia), Kraków or Katowice (Poland). From those cities, you can buy bus/train tickets to Ostrava via Regiojet.cz.

From Ostrava or Brno to Frýdlant nad Ostravicí. In Frýdlant nad Ostravicí, we will pick you up at the train station at the appointed time. We will also create a space for sharing a means of transport for those who have registered. Parking is under the cottage. Car directions are here.
