Watsu 3 is for people who have given enough Watsu sessions to develop a comfortable intuitive awareness of how to be with another person in the water and who are ready to further adapt and explore outside the form of Watsu 2. Powerful stretches and advanced techniques including work at the pool wall and on the steps are introduced. Rolls that require a spontaneous adaptation to the new positions they lead you into are presented as a gateway into "Free Flow" . The Adapted versions focuses on the application of Watsu to those with specific conditions.
Prerequisite: Watsu 2, completion of 20 practice sessions, and a recorded demonstration of mastery.

05/27/2007 ... I had a wonderful time and I am in awe of yor knowledge. Thank you for bringing my focus to all the moves possible.
05/14/2005 ... I thought that Cameron was really special. She made the course free flowing and exciting. She brings a perspective to the class that is unique and professional. I would recommend the class to anyone. I would proudly take any course that she might teach.
I also found the class very helpful to increase the ease by which I use the techniques learned in watsu I and II. A great experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
07/29/2002 ... Highly recommended! Cameron is a wonderful instructor and very knowledgable in many areas: anatomy and physiology, shiatsu, aquatic properties and principles, disabilites, watsu, jahara, waterdance, etc. During this class you really focus in on a wide range of disabilities, precautions and restrictions, goals and adpated moves. If you work in a community, hospital / rehab, or private setting, I encourage all to take this class. Prior to this course, my last one taken was in 1999. Now that it's 2002, I've had a lot of time to work with many different individuals in both a clinical and community setting and have realized that most people have a limitation to some degree. I advise you to take Adapted Watsu III if you want to educate yourself on disabilities and learn how to adapt watsu moves to each individual.
06/19/2002 ... This is an excellent class, take it. Cameron came prepared with course material that was fascinating and informative; her own preparation had involved contacting students in advance to find out what their experience with the disabled/elderly was, and whatparticular injuries/diseases we might be interested in going into in more depth. Cameron also came supplied with the special flotation cushions that form in important part of her technique, and she had enough to make available for purchase by students who wanted them. (I particularly appreciated this because I live overseas and getting watsu equipment like floats has been very difficult in the past. I think it would be an excellent thing if all instructors did the same.)<br>The students' levels of experience at the class I attended varied widely: most were long-established professionals at a famous resort, a couple were just finishing their practitioners's qualification, I was one with less schooling & experience of watsu. Cameron effortlessly adapted her teaching to all these levels, saw to it that everyone understood everything, while imparting skills & opening up creative avenues for all.<br>The course venue "In Arizona (Tucson)" was excellent, too. The class was warmly received and those of us lodging were made absolutely comfortable by the organizers who offer a superb pool and a clean, healthy environment in which to learn. I am truly grateful to them because I know how important "infrastructure" is to the success of a class.<br>I hope to be able to study with Cameron again, in the same or a different facility. I highly recommend both to anyone interested in pursuing watsu.
