TaKeTiNa is a unique process capable of activating human and musical potential through rhythm. TaKeTiNa conveys rhythm in such a way that people can absorb, understand, and learn in the most natural manner. Instead of being taught random rhythmic patterns, TaKeTiNa guides its participants directly into the experience of primal rhythmic movements that are anchored in the sensory-motoric system of every human being. This underlying rhythmic foundation expresses itself through music in every culture. In TaKeTiNa, the body is the main instrument. The experience is therefore direct, intense and lasting.

The TaKeTiNa process combines the rhythmic knowledge of ancient cultures with insights from our modern world including rhythm research, cybernetics, neuroscience, and chaos theory. Both information systems are present in this new path of learning.

Because the TaKeTiNa group process is also deep emotional work that has the potential to activate lasting inner change, it can only be lead by trained and certified TaKeTiNa teachers. You can also experience and practice the TaKeTiNa method by using the TaKeTiNa book "Rhythm for Evolution“ with its newly designed training program on DVD. This informal DVD focuses on the musical aspect of TaKeTiNa. Whatever path you choose, learning with TaKeTiNa works equally well for professional musicians and beginners.

Austrian composer and percussionist Reinhard Flatischler developed TaKeTiNa in 1970. Today it is applied worldwide in the field of education and therapy in music universities, hospitals, rehabilitation-clinics, psychotherapy practices and pain therapy. It is also used in work with theatre groups and corporate trainings. The effects that the TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process have on the nervous system are researched and verified in various projects with scientists and physicians.
