ABOUT ALIZA RIVKA

Aliza Rivka is the guide you meet when you’re ready to stop going through the motions and start living again. 

After 32 years in New York City, Aliza left the concrete jungle for the jungles of Costa Rica because her body told her to. It took months of brutal body aches, depression & depletion for Aliza to finally look right into her body and ask: “What do you want?” 

What arrived loud & clear was a flood of imagery: green jungle canopies, ocean warmth, sun on skin & lots of dance. Ingredients for health. An emerging recipe for a soul-based life.

Within 2 months, Aliza was on the plane to Costa Rica (never before on her map) managing a dance retreat center near the beach. What’s unfolded since then has been nothing short of magic. Mission rebooted, autoimmune symptoms dissolved, Aliza now guides others in the art of quantum growth through dance. 

Aliza is a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist, an ordained Kohenet Hebrew Priestess & a certified DJ Witch via PhDJ. Her priestess title, Kohenet Machalat Safah, means dancer at the edge of the deep.

Aliza is a master of movement & metamorphosis. Her dance floors are literal jungle parties where nature gets down with us & a new earth births between beats. When Aliza’s on the decks, our bodies breathe better & sound systems pulse to the deeper prayer of Pachamama. 


Aliza has touched thousands of lives through dance – leading dance community in the NYC area, locally in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica & globally from her Zoom screen. Co-founder of Imiloa Institute’s Soul Sundays & Mama of Mariposa Movement – Aliza is just getting started. Subscribe for all ways to dance & connect, & join the waitlist for Flight School 2023 here!
