OlyWaves 11th Annual Tribal Gathering of Embodied Dancers

Please join us for this joyful summer celebration and deep dive into movement practice featuring 5Rhythms, Soul Motion, and Open Floor teachers!


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

OlyWaves, successor to Olympia’s Waves Studio, is a community-centric organization led by Ronny Temple that is aligned with the global phenomenon known as One Dance Tribe®. As such we support Embodied Dance in all its manifestations, such as 5Rhythms®, Open Floor, Soul Motion®, and Spirit Weaves®. These are physical and spiritual dance practices which promote a fullness of life and freedom in movement. At the heart of Embodied Dance is the physical experience of your body in motion. We offer weekly 5Rhythms® classes, as well as world-class Embodied Dance workshops.


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.
