ABOUT the TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process as developed by Reinhard Flatischler
TaKeTiNa is a process for activating human and musical potential through rhythm and the body and is a path in which musical learning always goes hand in hand with personal development. As a rhythm and meditation process, TaKeTiNa requires no musical experience and is an extremely playful and joyous way of entering into the archetypal foundations of rhythms that exist in all music. Complex poly-rhythms and cross-rhythms form the basis of the process as it utilizes the body by stepping, clapping and singing to generate a complex and rich rhythmic choir which leads participants into states of relaxation, inner presence, and awareness. The process presents opportunities for fun, spontaneity, self-observation, musical expression, reflection and time to rest and restore.
The TaKeTiNa process allows you to
* Practice presence and inner stillness
* To work creatively and effectively with chaotic phases
* Improve your performance by reducing your anxiety about making ‘mistakes’
* Practice entering a state of relaxation, effortlessness and flow
* Open and express your unique creativity
* Develop improvisational skills and rhythmic confidence
TaKeTiNa® requires no musical experience and invites participants to go at their own pace. As well as using the body and voice the workshop will also utilise small handheld percussion instruments – all instruments will be supplied.
Leader Tania Bosak Musician, Actor, Master TaKeTiNa Teacher
Tania has dedicated over 34 years to a multifaceted career as an actor, musician, producer, composer, musical director, theatre director, and passionate educator, both in Australia and internationally. Her journey began with training in Odissi and Bharatanatyam Indian Classical dance from 1989 to 1997, complemented by acting and physical theatre training at The John Bolton Theatre School in 1991. This diverse foundation ignited her enduring passion for rhythm, storytelling/theatre, and movement.
In 2018, after more than two decades of training and practice, Tania achieved certification as a Master TaKeTiNa Rhythm facilitator. TaKeTiNa, a distinctive Rhythm and Meditation process created by composer and musician Reinhard Flatischler, became a focal point of her expertise. She trained with Flatischler in the USA and assisted him between 2010 and 2022 in TaKeTiNa Teacher Trainings, Weekend workshops, and Drumming and Percussion courses.
Tania’s interest in rhythm expanded to encompass health, healing, group process work, and music for social and personal change. This led her to complete a Diploma in Solution-Focused Counselling (CET, Dr. Rob McNeilly) and further training with Stephen Gilligan, including a Trance Camp in 2008 and a certificate in Generative Trance therapy at the Institute of Applied Psychology (IAP) in 2020. In 2021, Tania completed a leader training certificate with ‘Musicians without Borders’ in Germany alongside Otto De Jong, Marion Haak-Schulenburg, and Juan David Garzon.
Tania’s expertise in TaKeTiNa led to an invitation to teach in the Bachelor of Rhythm and Rhythmics at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles, a groundbreaking 3-year training program co-founded by Arnould Massart. This program is designed for professional music and rhythm teachers seeking to enhance their skills for artistic, educational, socio-cultural, or health-care settings.
Tania holds a BA in Performing Arts, Contemporary Dance, and Education and completed additional training in music, physical theatre, acting, and movement at The John Bolton Theatre School in 1993. She is also a proud member of IAGC, The International Association of Generative Change.
