About The City Waves™

The City Waves™ was founded in May 2014 by Alessandro Moruzzi and Vehllia Tranne, Certified 5Rhythms® Teachers Accredited by the 5RTA (5Rhythms Teachers Association).

All classes and workshops are open to everyone of any shape or physical ability. All of their class and workshop hours count as Waves on the 5Rhythms Dancing Path towards Teacher Training, while Alessandro also teaches Heartbeat.

Together, Alessandro and Vehllia offer many years of experience in 5Rhythms, dance, music, theater, performance, healing, spiritual practices and shamanism. They always draw their inspiration from nature, deeply connected to the ancestors, offering heartfelt intuitively crafted experience and support for each dancer, holding a safe and transformational space for all.

They offer weekly 5Rhythms® classes and regular workshops in San Francisco, California, USA. Please check our Calendar for class updates. We offer private classes and welcome requests to teach 5Rhythms elsewhere. Our classes and workshops are also being offered around the world. Please contact The City Waves for more information about classes and workshops outside San Francisco.

Sweat Your Prayers® is a gathering where we bring our individual 5Rhythms® practice and move through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness with intention and in community.

To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy. -Gabrielle Roth, Sweat Your Prayers

Want to dance in the morning? Want to experience Moving Meditation? Want to recharge and regenerate enthusiasm for the weekend ahead? Come to Mission Friday™! The City Waves™ offers 5Rhythms® Waves Classes in the heart of San Francisco Mission District weekly on Friday Mornings!

Alessandro and Vehllia hold safe space for you to practice and to explore the depth of your being in a dynamic and fun way through the map of the 5Rhythms. Join us!

Dancing the 5Rhythms is a practice—a dynamic way to both workout and to meditate in the same breath. They teach us that life is energy in motion, freeing us from any fixed notions about people, places, objects or ideas.

The 5Rhythms – Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness® – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.

Please respect the tribe's intention and integrity by arriving on time. If front door is locked, please ring the bell, we will buzz you in, then go upstairs. We're in Studio 2.

Tuesday Waves class is happening periodically, for now. This is an open class. Everyone is welcomed.

As we ride the waves of life, we share the spirited mix, eclectic nature of our culture, community and co-existence. The City Waves passionately brings out the potent medicine of this moving meditation with clarity, power and grace.

Waves all around us, waves from inside us, waves from dancing together. Waves that inspire our body to move, whether on familiar and unfamiliar rhythms and beats to discover, challenge, mesmerize, explore and appreciate more of who we are. We find the truth through the body, as the beats changes.

There is no need to have any particular physical background or to consider ourselves dancers or not. We keep moving with the music and the dance will come to us. We dance until the dancer disappears and only the dance remains.

Please respect the tribe's intention and integrity by arriving on time. If front door is locked, please ring the bell, we will buzz you in, then go through the gate and enter the first door on your right.
