Want a fun class that introduces you to Aquatic Bodywork modalities and gives you a solid foundation in how to support a partner in the water? This course provides just that in a low pressure environment. Aquatic bodywork includes the modalities Watsu®, Healing Dance® and WaterDance™ in which the client is held by the practitioner in body temperature water and gently moved. A session can include work with the meridians and points (Watsu®), massage and bodywork (Healing Dance®). Some sessions also involve total immersion of the client underwater using noseclips for the length of his/her breath (WaterDance™ and Healing Dance®). This class covers Aquatic Bodywork principles and an introduction to these 3 modalities.

Whether you take this class to float your friends and family or want to make a career of aquatic bodywork, this will class prepare you with a foundation. We will learn body mechanics and specific anatomy related to aquatic bodywork. Through games and exchanges we see how the water helps us to comfortably support a partner. .
