Healing Dance 2 with Ashaman
March 23, 2023 - March 28, 2023
A 6-day course, on the surface only.
Healing Dance 2 asks the question, “How do we earn trust and gain access to the body at the beginning of a session?” The answer it provides lies in the trance-inducing Back Waves and in our quality of touch. In this training, we continue the study of spatial mandalas beyond the waves of Healing Dance 1 into the spiral, the eight and the spiral eight.
Healing Dance 2 also focuses strongly on bodywork. It offers a toolbox replete with massage techniques and stretches integrated into the flow of movement. The course delivers the fullness of Healing Dance’s surface repertoire with an entirely new set of mini-sequences including Seaweed 2, The Starfish, Adonis Waves, Arm Waves, and Klimt. Healing Dance 2 carries further the emphasis on Relating and Mirroring by which students hone the all important art of responding to the kinetic and feeling states of their receivers. A written and photo manual are provided and an MP4 of the sequence is made available.
Prerequisites: Healing Dance 1 & Healing Dance Integration Day.
Credits: Healing Dance 2 is recognized by WABA (Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association) and gives 50 hours of credit for registration with WABA and Watsu India.
“I have been dancing in the water since my first training with Alexander in 1999. The fluidity and dynamic grace inherent in aquatic bodywork immediately touched my center, and integrated my passions for body awareness, movement and relating. I studied many of the prominent aquatic modalities, and was certified to teach Healing Dance by Alexander in 2005. Since then I continue traveling to teach in the USA, Spain, Italy, Israel, Hawaii, India and Hungary. I love discovering new people, waters, and countries through this beautiful art.
In addition to my experience in the water, I have practiced and taught bodywork for over 20 years, instruct individuals and groups in sustainable fitness and movement practices, and am perpetually fascinated with exploring and expanding awareness through the body. Outside of the teaching field, I have worked at diverse interests ranging from performing classical musician to climbing arborist. I look forward to meeting you in the water!”
