A 6-day course in total, this being part 1 (first 3 days only).
Tantsu grew out of Watsu. Watsu is a form of aquatic bodywork developed in the 1980s by Harold Dull, floating and stretching people in warm water. In Tantsu, the unconditional holding of Watsu is brought back onto land.
Tantsu offers a deep state of listening and creates an unconditional union and cradle of connected breath and presence. The trust established by this cradle and its creative exploration make it ideal for giving a Tantsu session to anybody.
During the first four days, you will be exposed to the basics of Tantsu: cradling someone in a comfortable hold, which gives access to a deep level of relaxation and stillness. The micro-movements that appear will guide your moves, stretches and rotations of shoulders, arms, hips and legs, thereby releasing blockages in the energy flow.
The following two days will take you deeper into body-listening and exploration of various possible body movements. You will also gain knowledge about meridians, hara, and the connection between mind and body.
In this intensive Tantsu will become a joyful expression of caring love.
No previous experience required.
