5Rhythms® Summer workshop 

Waves and Heartbeat level

Led by Silvija Tomčik and Thierry Francois

Sutivan, Island of Brač, CROATIA



“We need relationships that are alive, vital, changing, moving – relationships that move through all the rhythms. Sometimes they flow, sometimes they pulse, sometimes they erupt, sometimes they lift along, and sometimes they’re very still.” Gabrielle Roth


All kinds of couples are welcome.  

Couples at the beginning of the Wave, couples in the chaos of the Wave, couples at the end of the Wave. 

We hope that being together with other couples will create a safe space to share things that couples can understand and relate to – a safe space to take risks.  

During most of the workshop we will work together and there will be times when we break into two groups and each group works with either Silvija or Thierry. We will have 2 sessions per day, 2h in the morning and 2h in the evening, which gives you also that private “time for us” as well.

Following the map of 5Rhythms and working with the landscape of 5 emotions we will offer our questions, our struggle and our beauty to the wisdom of our bodies and to the courage of our hearts. 


Prerequisites: 20 hours of Waves level
This workshop counts as 2.5 days of Waves and 2.5 days of Heartbeat towards the Teacher Training.


The workshop begins on Friday 26thof August at 19:00 h and ends on Friday 1st of September at 12:00 h.

Workshop is led in English.


Silvija & Thierry: 

Silvija  was introduced to Gabrielle Roth’s teachings through her book Maps to Ecstasy 22 years ago. It was a powerful encounter, which motivated Silvija to begin searching for 5Rhythms teachers with whom she could dance.  She organized numerous 5R workshops in Croatia and Slovenia, bringing the practice for the first time to this part of the world. At the time she was working in the Center for Peace Studies and leading workshops on gender issues. She finished the Waves Teacher Training with Gabrielle in 2001, and Heartbeat Teacher Training in 2010. Silvija regularly teaches at weekend workshops and retreats internationally. In her teaching she combines clarity, with imagination, humour with wisdom and a great variety of music. Her grounded way of dancing is inspiring. She is passionate about the freedom of being in the body as a way of prompting everyone to discover their personal dance and healing movement.  


Thierry has been dancing from a very early age, beginning with ballet lessons when he was a kid, pursuing theater in his 20s in order to express himself and share his inspiration with others, all the while perfecting himself through numerous practices such as dancing, mime and clown work. He is also a certified and experienced Gestalt therapist. In the early 2000s, he came across 5Rhythms and it enabled him to finally integrate body work into his practice. In 2010, he completed the 5Rhythms Teacher Training with Gabrielle Roth, Waves level, and is currently training for the Heartbeat level with Jonathan Horan. He is also committed to working with men’s groups, through ManKind Project. His unique way of teaching is the result of all these different aspects which he brings to his work with great enthusiasm, communicating his passion in a creative and humorous way. His strength lies in his openness to challenges and his absolute love of music.
