Event description


THE RHYTHM OF MONEY: A 5Rhythms Movement Workshop with Anne Marie Hogya

Let's create some freedom...

Our relationship to money shapes our beliefs, influences our energy and creates behaviors which affect who we are and what we manifest in the world. This relationship can expand or contract us, assist or limit us, free or bind us. Our bodies carry the message of our relationship with money. By paying attention to this information in our body, we can gain tremendous insight into what we need to let out, let in, and let go of.

In this weekend workshop we will create the possibility of increased awareness, ease, choice, freedom and fun. So that rather than restrict and constrict us, we can create the opportunity of a relationship with money that is spacious, fluid and inspired.

Using the 5Rhythms movement practice as our map, we will explore the rhythms of our relationship to money and how it influences and informs our body, our energy and our potential.

This workshop is open to anyone and any body (any size, shape, fitness level, age). No previous movement, 5Rhythms or other, experience is needed. All that is required is a sense of curiosity, openness, and willingness to move.

Anne Marie is an accredited 5RTA teacher and these workshops will count towards the 5Rhythms Training Path hours.

What past participants have said about this workshop:

“I would recommend it especially to people who are having a hard time with their relationship to money. To be able to bring these relationships into the body and dance it brings so much awareness.”


“I think this workshop topic will help anyone who takes it. It is a cultural taboo subject that doesn’t belong in the closet – it needs to come out and be healed, and grown up.”


“When we can bring beliefs to the surface of consciousness and then move with them, they can begin to unwind their hold on us.”


“I witnessed my old patterns and stories in my dance and saw how it impacts myself and others. I get that I am not alone in this conversation. I am able to move the conversation into my practice with compassion and loving kindness and get unstuck.”


“It has given me an awareness of my habits associated with money, where they came from and especially that I can change them to a more positive response.”


“I now see the world as being full of abundance, I am less fearful of spending money and I am open to indulging more, which in my case is more balanced.”


“It has changed my relationship with money and its role and placement in my life. It used to be front and center and now it is a part of the internal package, with a voice but not the only voice.”


“Upon witnessing my own experience and others I realized that we are all actually experiencing the same thing but in different stories and body movements. I realized like other taboo subjects there is a veil of shame and guilt that collapses the natural movement of energy. I have greater compassion for myself and others and I am feeling hope, relief, and responsibility.”


“I loved bringing the conversation out into the open and dancing it out over and over again. I loved the truth telling, the compassion, the courage of the other dancers and Anne Marie.”

“I finally let go and hung out in the fun and freedom. It was a powerful experience for me.”



What are my transport/parking options getting to the workshop?

There is free street parking with no time limits; there is also parking across the street at Sir James Douglas Elementary or the Fairfield Community Centre parking lots. If you are taking public transit you can find routes with the BCTransit trip planner guide. Just put in your location and then add the destination address of the vevnue, which is 1303 Fairfield Road, and your bus route will be available. There is a bus stop right outside of the hall. 

What should I wear and bring to the workshop?

Dress comfortably in clothing that you don’t mind sweating in and allow you full range of motion. You may want to bring a cover-up so you don’t get cold. Many people move in bare feet but you can also wear clean running or dance shoes. Please bring a notebook or journal and pen for doing some short writing exercises and, if you would like, bring a pillow or cushion for sitting on the floor as we will take some time for short discussions; there will be chairs available in the hall. Also, many people like to bring some snacks or a light lunch; we’ll be taking a rest break half way through the session on both Saturday and Sunday. Lastly, don't forget to bring a bottle of water and your curiosity!

Is my registration transferrable?

You can transfer your registration to another person. Additionally, a full refund or credit is available up to 14 days before the workshop and after November 18, 2016 there is a 50% refund or full credit for future workshops. 

Will we be dancing in this workshop? 

Yes! We'll be using the 5Rhythms movement practice to explore this workshop theme of our relationship to money; you can find information about the 5Rhythms here. The general format of each session will be a warm-up dance movement period (uninstructed or with some facilitation), teaching, and dance/movement opportunities and exercises for exploring the teaching. We'll move to a variety of different kinds of music, and sometimes no music at all, to support embodying the rhythms and the teachings. There will be a combination of individual, partnered, and group work throughout the weekend. 

Do I need experience in dance or need to be physically fit?

No experience or level of fitness is required to do this 5Rhythms workshop. The 5Rhythms is a simple and flexible practice that can be experienced by anyone regardless of their physical limitations. Because there is no specific “routine” to follow you will be able to participate at your own pace, within your own capacity to move.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please feel free to call 250-857-0607 or email with any questions.
