Evangelos is a certified 5Rhythms facilitator & meditation teacher who trained directly with founder of the 5Rhythms Gabrielle Roth. He has been continuously studying with meditation masters Achariya Doug Duncan Sensei and Catherine Pawasarat Sensei since 2002. He creates an atmosphere that is adventurous and safe, weaving a delicate chemistry of humour & analytical self-exploration. The healing modalities he is trained in create a space where individuals acknowledge, move through and release conditioned patterns from the past.
He has taught across Canada, Japan, Europe and the U.S. Based in Calgary but serving innovative movers everywhere, he has a passion for integrating expressive dance and the path of self-actualization with meditation and the arts. His workshops and classes empower participants to seek ways to allow their passion to be expressed, their curiosity to be fulfilled and their gifts to be shared in a way that manifests optimal personal potential, abundance and joyful play.
Evangelos’ compassionate and investigative nature encourages participants to dance through each of the five rhythms (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness) by cultivating pristine awareness through body-based investigation.
“When we make the effortless effort to dance through unfamiliar waves and vibrations, we begin to embrace the sounds and rhythms we believe are not us. Movement allows a whole world of creativity to open up. It releases the stories that are deeply embedded in the body. We come together to dance, to learn from each other and sweat our prayers. A 5Rhythms workshop encourages us to view fear and confusion as an opportunity for growth and transformation.” Evangelos
