Our 5Rhythms classes nurture joy and presence. Join us Sunday mornings at 9am for the Inner Wave & 10:30am for the Sweat Your Prayers.


The 5Rhythms is a practice of great depth. Check out our upcoming workshops for a deeper experience and greater embodiment.

OlyWaves, successor to Olympia’s Waves Studio, is a community-centric organization led by Ronny Temple that offers world-class 5Rhythms® classes and workshops. 5Rhythms® is a physical and spiritual dance practice which promotes a fullness of life and freedom in movement. At the heart of this comprehensive body of work is the physical experience of your body in motion.

Guest House

This being human is a guest house,
every morning a new arrival…a joy, a depression, a meanness.
Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all.
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows
who violently sweep the house empty of its furniture.
Still, treat each guest honourably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whomever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
