A 2-day course on the surface only.
Watsu is an aquatic bodywork modality given in a warm water pool (ideally 35°C).
Watsu, where the client’s face stays always on the surface, introduces the qualities and body mechanics required to work with someone in water in order to create a profound state of both physical and mental relaxation.
The flowing interaction with water, its fluid support and warm embrace, and the practitioner’s presence provide a space for the client to experience the multi-layered benefits of this powerful and softening bodywork. Watsu 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 client and to each session.
In this course, you will practice basic techniques and qualities (grounding, presence, stillness, movement, attention) of being and moving another body in water. You will experience floating other people and being floated on the surface, thereby creating space for deep relaxation and nurturing body, mind and spirit.
Participants in this course often appreciate the group space, which fosters deep, meaningful and nurturing connections.
