Liquid Flow Essence with Dariya & Daniel
January 10, 2023 - January 16, 2023
A 7-day course, on the surface as well as under water.
Liquid Flow is an aquatic bodywork modality given in a warm water pool (ideally 35°C). Developed at the Quiet Healing Center, Auroville, Liquid Flow is inspired and based on the forms and qualities of Watsu, OBA, Healing Dance, and WaterDance.
With a complete sense of presence and attention, the practitioner moves, folds, stretches, and massages the receiver’s floating body on the surface, inducing a profound state of both physical and mental relaxation. Depending on the choice of the receiver, a session can also include an underwater part (with nose clip), which offers a unique experience of being moved under water.
The flowing interaction with water, its fluid support and warm embrace, and the practitioner’s presence provide a space for the receiver to experience the multilayered benefits of this powerful and softening bodywork. Liquid Flow offers an opportunity for profound relaxation and letting go, for building trust, for being nurtured and held, for expanding inner and outer boundaries, for releasing emotions and traumas – ultimately, for freeing body and mind in a flow unique to each receiver and to each session.
This intense course with the main Liquid Flow sequence is for students of different aquatic bodywork modalities, who wish to dive deeper into their practice.
In combination with practices on land, you will experience the profound effects of this powerful, yet softening, work.
Liquid Flow Essence is the favourite elective of many students. Inspired by different aquatic bodywork modalities, it offers a wonderful new sequence of essential mobilisation possibilities in a flow with ease and continuity.
Together with a deepening presence and unconditional holding, this course improves your therapeutic work and leads towards the essence of any aquatic bodywork: being deeply in touch with one’s essence, and experiencing a sense of timelessness and connection to ALL.

Besides the belief that a solid technical base provides possibilities for ease and lightness in further personal growth, their main focus is to create spaces for flow, deepening and connection.
