To the public:
My love of Watsu® stems from the heart-centered connection I feel w/ the person floating in my arms. I believe Watsu® is a way of bringing awareness, groundedness and peace into our daily lives. Much more than a "technique" of aquatic bodywork; the surrender and trust, as well as physical flexibility experienced in a session is profound.
I've shared Watsu and other Aquatic Bodywork since 1996,and teaching since 2000.
I have been studying NVC Communication for the past 6 years as well as the unique style of Selwa Said. For me, good communication is essential.
As I teach in various countries,the space of total presence and awareness that the giver provides is the same space we can use to bring peace in our world, locally and globally.
I am willing to share this space with everyone.
My passion for Watsu® has taken me from being a Montessori teacher, and 22 years of being a performance artist using mime, comedy and movement, into the healing arts. This has aided in my flowing style in sessions as well as creating a supportive, graceful, nonjudgemental learning environment in the classroom.

Good communication is essential; having studied Non Violent communication I bring that into the classroom.
My mission is to create a new paradigm of teaching with ease, grace and groundedness.
My early Montessori teacher training is a valued asset to my Watsu® instruction. Teaching at the child's level gave me the ability to break down the whole,into easier learning parts. As a result, I use movement, fun & a foundation of body mechanics in my watsu instruction. I believe a Watsu® class can be taught as a Watsu® session,more like zenflow.
