with Zorina Wolf on her OCTOBER 2016 Southern California workshop tour.

TaKeTiNa:  Adventures in Groove

Oct. 20 in San Diego

Do you know the juicy satisfaction of feeling deeply “In the Groove”? You know, that transporting state of being carried by the music where everything seems effortless? Those moments form some of our best musical memories — both as audience and playing participants.

If you like that feeling of being In the Groove, TaKeTiNa is for you! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience it in San Diego!

The TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process is a moving, musical group process where we co-create layers of rhythm and harmony that lead us deep into Groove.

Workshop leader Zorina Wolf is one of the world’s best and most experienced TaKeTiNa guides.

TaKeTiNa: Entering Rhythm with your Whole Body

When we stand in a circle together– stepping, clapping, and singing–we open to our knowledge of rhythm in the body.

TaKeTiNa is a methodology for entering rhythm with our non-linear mind. It has applications for musicians, dancers, yogis, meditators, anyone interested in expanding their awareness through movement.

There is nothing more thrilling than to feel in the groove, carried by rhythm and sound — and to not have to know anything. Just relax and trust that you can find the pulse, and sing.

You will not need a drum for this experience. Wear dance shoes if you wish. No prior experience needed.
