KOHENET ALIZA RIVKA

Kohenet Hebrew Priestess, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist 

Aliza Rivka weaves her training as a Kohenet Hebrew Priestess & Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist to offer transformational movement experiences. In 2018, nudged by a health crisis, Aliza traded life in the concrete jungle of New York City, where she was born and raised, for the lush green jungles of Costa Rica. Since then, Aliza has been on a journey of healing, reconnecting with the earth and learning how to dance a new story. Now, it’s time to share the many practices, learnings and tools gathered along the way. Read Aliza’s full bio here

Aliza is pure magic. She shares herself and her journey so generously. Being in her presence inspires me to create a life so abundant that I’m bursting with love, because I want what she’s having. Her deep, tender, fiery spirit is contagious and ignites everyone and everything around her. -Jamie Yasgur, Dance/Movement Therapist

She earned her Massage Therapy License in 2013 and specializes in Somatic Education, trigger-point therapy, and somatic-neural pathway re-education. After being guided through the Soul Purpose Discovery Process under the mentorship of Jonathan Gustin, Miriam found the work to be so profound that she decided to train as a Purpose Guide™.

As an ordained interfaith minister, Miriam’s Eco-Ministry is in supporting individuals to connect with their authentic soul’s purpose, with the earth, and with one another.

“Aliza Rivka’s guidance brought me to a deeper, truer place in dancing. To plunge right back in where I had left off when somewhat estranged from dance years ago. She provided tools and insights as well as a sparkling cascade of encouragement and body language to ease us back into a wellspring of fortifying and freeing dance! I am reaping so many benefits!” — Clara Boom Sarr, Movement Magic participant —
