Feedback from students who have taken this class taught by
Minakshi is The teacher. I am so happy to meet her, and I am so graceful too. Everybody have heard about minakshi. She is one of the first teacher and co teacher with Harold. How is it possible to be closer to the source of watsu.
I didn't really know what to expect when I decide to go to Florida. It's a long way from Paris but I knew I had to do it. My money was well spent and minakshi adapted perfectly the way she thought. The venue is wonderful and quiet. I highly recommend to meet minakshi. The pool was perfect too. I felt like home for the 10 days I spent there.
... Minakshi is a great teacher and definitely succeeded in getting everyone into free flow. :) Accommodations were just great and she wasn't kidding when she said that the kitchen is fully equipped!
... Minakshi is a caring and talented teacher. I came to her lovely home and training facility in the Florida Keys for the Watsu 3 training in November of 2016. My previous Watsu 1 and 2 training was over 20 years ago. I currently use Watsu in my physical therapy practice mainly with people who have neurological disabilities. Minakshi took the time to review the changes in Watsu since I took it in 1995. She worked with me to find out exactly what I needed and customized my learning experience perfectly. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning Watsu!
... Well worth it! Be prepared to get creative.
... It's a wonderful, heart opening experience. Minakshi is wonderfully detailed, skilled and patient. Fabulous if you are looking to learn in a small group with individual attention. Lovely location and cosy place to stay.
... I audited Watsu 2 with Minakshi in Florida...I highly recommend this experience. It allows you to be calm, confident,& connected...I was able to hone in on the sequence & truly feel the free flow...Grateful for the opportunity.
... Small class size enabled a flawless learning environment with one on one training and individual attention. Extensive education in bodywork on land and in water, entire course packed with unlimited information and attention to detail. Opportunity to practice skill was available every day, and no questions went unanswered. There are no comments in the below "improvement to course suggestion box" below because there is absolutely NOTHING to improve, whether you stay for a weekend, a week, or entire month, it will be the best and most extensive education you will receive time and money wise. My emphasis on BEST AND MOST EXTENSIVE EDUCATION, Minakshi is the best of the best.
... Worth every penny. Minakshi breaks down a very involved process and makes it all so easy to learn.
... I had such an amazing time with Minakshi in this class! So much fun to move into free flow and to do it with such an experienced teacher! Wonderful!
... great location and a great teacher
... I really enjoyed the class and flexibility of Minakshi's teaching style. Minakshi creates wonderful hand outs. The island studio is a great place to take a class.
... Take this course at Minakshi's!
I had a phenomenal Watsu 3 experience with Minakshi. At times I thought the material was perfectly clear, then Minakshi made it even clearer! She is indeed an asset to the trade, never leaving a creative stone unturned. My education has expanded with Watsu 3 not by threefold, but rather by a thousand-fold. Many graceful and grateful thanks for this, another life-changing experience, Minakshi, Supreme Water Goddess of the Universe!
... Wonderful instructor! You are organized, yet relaxed at the same time.
