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.
