Oceanic Bodywork Aqua – OBA® 1 with Dariya & Daniel
April 25, 2023 - April 30, 2023
A 6-day course with mainly under water work.
“Diving into the wonderful world of memories, where we, as embryos in the protective belly of our mother, floated, surrounded by warm water. In timeless vastness, going inside, feeling free and secure, and diving into a weightless world”. In this first course of 50 hours, we will approach water in a playful and friendly way, beginning to learn the various techniques of this wonderful work in hot water.
We will see the 3 phases of a session: working on cushions and floats, working on the surface and underwater. At the end of this course you will be able to offer friends and acquaintances a complete OBA session.
More about OBA:
Developed by Kaya Femerling & Nirvano Martina Schulz, OBA is a deeply relaxing form of aquatic therapy, which takes place in a warm water pool..
It combines elements of soft stretching movements, aquatic deep tissue massage, and joint release, as well as energy and breath work in a unique way above and below water. Especially designed movements allow your whole spine to swing and energy to flow again.
This form of aquatic therapy invites you to experience the healing energies of water in a new way. Chronic physical pain as well as emotional tensions can be released. Special positions may remind you of how you felt to be held as a child.
You might dive into a wondrous world of memories, of floating weightlessly in the protective womb of your mother, of diving right back into that very space where you were surrounded by soft warm water. OBA invites you to experience again the nurturing qualities of being held and loved, and to rediscover trust, peace within yourself, and a sense of coming home.
Prerequisites: OBA Basic or equivalent course.
Credits: OBA 1 is recognized by WABA (Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association) and gives 50 hours of credits for registration with WABA and Watsu India.
Dariya (as WABA facilitator) & Daniel have been sharing their passion for aquatic bodywork with groups since 2004.
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.
