About the sessions
1- TaKeTiNa® Rhythm Process – Tania Bosak

TaKeTiNa is a process which allows you to:

  • Practice presence and inner stillness
  • To work creatively and effectively with chaotic phases
  • Improve your artistic practice by reducing your anxiety about making ‘mistakes’
  • Practice entering a state of deep relaxation
  • Open states of effortlessness
  • Open and express your unique creativity2- Claves and intervals: independence and juxtaposition – Manu Lurquin

    The idea of this session is to play and observe the intervals between the notes of the various claves combined with other rhythms, and to see how they respond to each other.
    This allows us to become aware of the different lengths of silence separating the structures of a rhythm. The aim is to be free to improvise rhythmically with one hand while keeping the stability of the clave with the other hand.


    3-PULSEdrum – Tania Bosak

    PULSEdrum is a rhythm class that integrates drumming, stepping and singing simultaneously. Original compositions based on polyrhythmic forms and odd time cycles form the foundation of these rich and playful rhythm sessions. The class also focuses on building rhythmic independence, improvisational skills and rhythmic confidence.

4 day Rhythm Immersion

We use our body in movement, claps and our voice.
Very gradually, the repetition and displacement of rhythmic patterns reveal the richness of the rhythmic world and its expressive possibilities.
The result of this practice is the ability to perceive clapped or vocalized rhythms, situating them in relation to the metric given by the movement of the body.
The interdependence of the claps with the voice and with the body is observed.
The regular and the irregular meet, the constant and the surprise …with great importance given to effortlessness.


Tania Bosak is a percussionist, vocalist and Master TaKeTiNa teacher. She has worked actively with the founder of TaKeTiNa Reinhard Flatischler in trainings and workshops, and integrates the TaKeTiNa rhythm process with her drumming teaching into a multi-layered rhythm experience that is accessible, fun and dynamic!

Tania’s courses involve in-depth explorations of additive, polyrhythmic and cross-rhythm cycles through stepping, and using the voice with drums and percussion.
Tania will include in this training her BODY IN POLYRHYTHM work, PULSE-drum
