Douglas was introduced to Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms movement meditation when he was 19yrs old and his first experience literally blew his pants right off. The 5Rhythms was a map that allowed Douglas to see & experience the world through a creative lens. The practice opened a path towards a new perspective of life. He now leads classes and retreats in the US and abroad. Body, Mind and Soul, the 5Rhythms is the expression of his artistic shape-shifter; creating a space for which to share the inexplicable and give expression to where words could not.
Douglas has been passionately involved with the 5Rhythms community for over 10 years. He is a professional in the health & wellness industry, Heart of Yoga Teacher and avid nature devotee. He and his wife Lucia lead 5Rhythms internationally and are based on Maui, Hawaii.
