“5Rhythms transcends dance - movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay our masks down, and dance till we disappear.” - Gabrielle Roth
On this full moon night we will be dancing the flowing of the feminae. Our feet connected to this ground, this earth, this mother that give us our weight pulling us constantly toward her red hot center, her womb.
We will be dancing from the fire of our center, from the pulsating darkness of our wombs, in the darkness of the night. We will connect our human bodies with that celestial body that spread soft gentle light on our path. With Bulan, the Moon, the one that with her dancing creates harmonic cycles and tides connecting with our fluids, our internal Ocean and own blood.
Dancing, to become aware of our connection from heaven and earth, from full to empty from giving and receiving, witnessed by the lineage of our ancestors. Fully alive with our breaths and dance till we disappear.

Vehllia Tranne is a Certified 5Rhythms® Teacher Accredited by 5RTA (5Rhythms Teachers Association) for Waves, and in training for Heartbeat level. She is Co-Founder of The City Waves™ San Francisco, Yoga Teacher Certified by Yoga Tree SF, and initiated into the tradition of stick divination of Dagara people. Vehllia has been celestially dancing before even learning to walk. She was born in Java, around the Ring of Fire, proud of her mixed heritage and dragon powers. She is a passionate healer, courageous shape-shifter, compassionate community leader, loyal partner and natural teacher.
After spending all of her life seeking for inner peace and a clearer purpose traveling through and living in many countries, weaving both Eastern and Western cultures, she was guided to transform her life to a more spiritually based existence by a chance encounter with the 5Rhythms. This magical cosmic convergence rocked her world, igniting and inspiring her renewed passion for dance as a tool for self-discovery, healing and transformation. Her connection with her volcanic ancient ancestral land is evident in her grounded powerful flowing and it's a sacred gift for all of us.
Vehllia’s teaching style reflects her spontaneity, her sincere love for life, and her mesmerizing voice body, expressed beautifully in her inspirational dance offering to anyone interested in a deep transformational exploration of self through moving meditation. She is largely inspired by nature and the elements, and infused her teaching with intuitive shamanic lineage from both her maternal and paternal ancestors. She currently resides in San Francisco, teaches around the Bay Area and around the world.
