Learn how the getting lighter of the one in your arms each time they breathe in, engages your own breathing from a deep level, and establishes the rhythm of the moves and stretches to come. Learn how floating someone at your heart draws you into a continuum, a moving as water, and a profound stillness. Learn the moves that open every Watsu session around the world. Done on both sides and complete in itself, this unconditional bodywork can be returned to again and again without ever exhausting its potential.

Learn long gracefully flowing transitions into and out of Watsu's major positions. Learn about your own body mechanics - how to support and move each person as effortlessly as possible in the water.

The Transition Flow follows Basic Watsu and completes Watsu 1. Learn to expand the Basic form with long gracefully flowing transitions into and out of Watsu's major positions. Learn to adapt this to people of all sizes, shapes and dispositions. Learn about your own body mechanics - how to support and move each person as effortlessly as possible in the water.

I am easily overwhelmed and learned to set my pace even if it would entail repeating the class. Peggy was amazing as an instructor and as a person. She took
the initiative to tailor the lesson for each individual student (the advantage of
having a small class).

07/26/2012 ... Expect to emerge from the class with a heightened appreciation for Water! Peggy Schoedinger is an excellent instructor! This is the most amazing class I have ever taken; my high expectations were exceeded.

I learned a tremendous amount about body mechanics, how to be in the water, how to move someone in the water, how to hold space for the receiver. I learned the basic moves and transitions covered in Watsu I and had ample time to practice. Our teacher emphasized the absolute necessity of maintaining comfort and support for the receiver at all times.

I feel comfortable practicing what I have learned and look forward to taking Watsu II. The lessons learned in this class have translated beautifully in other areas of my life. I highly recommend this course and instructor.
