Tantsu® 1 with Keli Procopio

March 1, 2025 - March 6, 2025

A 6-day intensive.

Tantsu® was developed by Harold Dull the same year in which he conceived Watsu® with the intent to bring onto land the same principles provided for Watsu®.

The basic principles of Zen Shiatsu, i.e.being and not doing, is further amplified in Tantsu, where a person is totally contained in a whole-body holding position (Tantsu Cradles).

By holding someone in a cradle, listening, breathing in harmony, coordinating movements, Tantsu enhances the quality of being with someone without intentionally doing anything.

A Tantsu session includes passive stretching, use of Shiatsu pressure points, spontaneous movements of the body and non-verbal communication.

The quality of presence and loving care of Watsu® is brought onto land, creating sensations of deep contentment and safe relaxation. It is an opportunity to open the door to a new state of wellness.

In this class you will learn different cradles, from the one of the origin, till the latest. We will practice how to provide a safe containment at the base of the receiver’s body, while moving and stretching in connection with the breath. As a receiver you can enjoy the Tantsu benefits through the gentleness and the deep connection that each position creates.

It is a useful approach for anyone who wants to deepen or improve the body-communication through the quality and the presence of “touch”. We will use active meditations, breathing experiences, free dance.

Prerequisites: No previous experience required.

Credits: Tantsu 1 is recognized by WABA (Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association) as part of the Watsu training program and gives 50 hours of credit for registration with WABA and Watsu India.
