Taketina allows you to explore and have fun with complex musical forms using an instrument that we can all play - the human body! The process is deceptively simple but it is a surprisingly effective method of teaching rhythm. Taketina works closely with body rhythms, stepping, clapping, chanting, laughing, falling in and out of rhythm. It is easy, playful, simple and enjoyable whilst at the same time being a profoundly unique experience. No pressure to get it right - making mistakes is all part of the fun! Taketina relaxes, rejuvenates and revitalises the nervous system. Difficult to describe in words, best experienced!

At the end of the Taketina session we will all lie down on the floor for 5 to 10 minutes. For your comfort, if you would like to bring a mat, blanket or cushion to lie on then please do so. This is not a requirement though :]

For most of the session we will be taking small steps to the left and right for between 2½ and 3 hours so please wear comfortable footwear. If this sounds like too much hard work then bear in mind that should you get tired at any point then you will be more than welcome to lie down in the middle of the circle and listen to the music. There is no pressure to “do it all”. Taking such a break during the session is a wonderful experience and I would encourage you to try it at least once during the class. It also helps to take small steps!

Look forward to seeing you in the Taketina circle!
