This course focuses on the Basics of Watsu®, as in Tai Chi or Yoga Pranayama, one is grounded in stance while floating and stretching someone to the rhythm of the connected breaths. Led through a simple yet complete form, one can take this course to deepen meditation, relationship to water, connection to others.

As in each stage of our program, the form learned has its own organic unity and can be repeated over and over without losing its freshness or benefits for both giver and receiver. There is a total of 16 hours in this course where emphasis is the stillness that is the ground of presence and incorporate the way the heart and breath connection can be maintained throughout a Watsu® Session. We will also explore the many levels of ‘being’ that the Watsu® and WRT Water Release Therapy® allows us to access in the warm 97 degree water environment.
