Healing Dance 2 with Ashaman

December 29, 2024 - January 3, 2025

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 to include 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 UpperBodyWork, The Starfish, Pegasus and Adonis, Easy Eights 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.

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 and healing in the water since my first training with Alexander in 1999, when I discovered an altogether unexpected love for aquatic bodywork. I realized that I could apply postural movement awareness from martial art to this unique shared therapeutic dance in warm water, and the fluidity and dynamic grace inherent in aquatic bodywork immediately touched my center. Integrating my passions for body awareness, enhanced consciousness through movement, and relating, I studied most of the prominent aquatic modalities, and in 2005 was among the early few certified to teach Healing Dance by Alexander. Since then I continue to immensely enjoy leading Healing Dance trainings in the United States, Europe, Israel and India. I am currently one of a small handful of instructors who certify Healing Dance Surface practitioners. I teach the Introduction to Healing Dance, Healing Dance 1 & 2, Relating & Mirroring, Healing Dance Underwater Basics, and the 50 hr underwater course Shape & Space.

In addition to my experience in the water I am a very active father of a 3 ½ year old son, have practiced and taught Eastern and Western bodywork for over 20 years, am fascinated with breath and the martial arts, instruct sustainable movement and fitness practices, have worked as a climbing arborist in the tall trees of Hawaii and am a dedicated student of the classical & flamenco guitar… and I look forward to meeting you in the water!
