You both have so much to offer and I wish there were a way you could reach folks who don’t know much about eurythmy and give them at least a taste . . . it is just right for me. . . . (and) there is so much more eurythmy is uniquely able to offer folks in these troubled times. It is such a healing gesture on a grand scale. It can have a new role in these new times. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? It seems so needed and maybe this is the time for it finally to be ‘discovered’ by a larger circle of folks. And you two are so flexible and creative, that I can think of no others who could be as skillful in guiding it into it’s potential. I hope this generates some fresh sparks for you both. -D.C.
Eurythmy classes with Glenda and David-Michael provide very enriching experiences, offering me new ways to connect movement with social, spiritual and philosophical elements necessary for me to navigate everyday life. The Monasches are highly skilled and committed teachers, who bring a level of intellectual maturity to their work that I find highly rewarding. Eurythmy has helped me integrate many areas of personal development into a cohesive sense of connectedness. I highly recommend their classes for anyone seeking a deeper connection with movement and soul development.-D.S.
The more I study eurythmy, the less I “know” on a cognitive level. The wisdom I have discovered through eurythmy is found where the body, soul and spirit become united. This is what I call “deep wisdom”. Eurythmy has a formative power that remolds my instrument, my upright human gestalt; to be receptive and permeable in order to be wakeful and present in my path towards attaining higher states of cognition. No other movement work accomplishes this to my knowledge. -K.Y.
Glenda and David-Michael are wise, full of warmth and humor, and very organized about the content and presentation of what they are teaching. They are also patient and encouraging to those of us who feel we “cannot do” eurythmy, and thus, we all learn to “do” it! -C.C.
I found the eurythmy training with the Monasches to be immensely transformative and valuable in my life. As teachers, I experienced them as sensitive, caring, fun loving and able to bring their wisdom, experience and knowledge of eurythmy to life in ways that were totally lively and at the same time deeply thoughtful and meaningful. The study was indescribably rich and I will always remain immensely grateful to have had the experience of these two very fine teachers. . . . I just wish I could take the course with them again! -E.C.
I have had many wonderful teachers from around the world and can honestly say that David-Michael and Glenda Monasch have been the absolute best! Glenda’s ability to describe the movement in beautiful, inspiring pictures and David-Michael’s clarity of form and discipline make for a perfect combination of art and intellect. I am forever grateful to them for the sharing the gift of eurythmy, which is now my life’s work. -J.F.
The Monasches are inspirational teachers of eurythmy and living anthroposophy. They bring all of the classical, foundational elements of eurythmy with a modern perspective and emphasis on how eurythmy lives within each one of us. In working with them, eurythmy became such an important part of my life that I left my career to train as a eurythmist, despite the struggles that were involved. Every day what I learned from the Monasches blossoms within and inspires my eurythmy and my teaching. -L.P.
