A 6-day course on the surface as well as underwater.
In WATA Fundamental Class, we focus on the three fundamental aspects of WaterDance: vertical grounding, posture (of both the giver and receiver) and the breath.
In WaterDance, our most basic move is the Water Breath Dance, in which we float someone in our arms and let them sink a little as they breathe out and rise with them as we both breath in. This creates a connection that can be carried into all above and underwater moves.
We also practice the beginning and end of a session and the basic movements, which form the essential core of this form of Aquatic-Body-Healing-Work.
The second part of this training is dedicated to a playful and at the same time attentive introduction to bring our partner underwater. Fears or apprehensions of going underwater will be given the time needed to open up and to be integrated.
Various tools like guided meditations, body- and energy work, active breathing exercises, communication skills and conscious contact with the earth, shall help to balance the four elements in and around us.
