Feedback from students who have taken this class taught by
Mary Theri Thomas:
... So profesionál and at the same way highly professional course . You will not be abled to learn about Watsu, as much as on the course of Theri Thomas and Aleksandra Koziorovska.
... I would highly recommend they find another instructor. Mary Theri Thomas could be accused of being verbally abusive to her students and an inadequate provider of training. She is completely lacking in teaching skills, does not understand various learning styles and does not provide a supportive environment physically, cognitively or emotionally for this work
... Theri is a unique Instructor. Her deep knowledge of Body structure and alignment is remarkable.
I appreciate pieces of her Aquatherics being implanted into watsu.
... Don't take it. Look elsewhere.
... Body mechanics are the number one skill that will keep any of us working. Theri's teaching skills are steeped in learning proper body mechanics to keep both ourselves and the body in our arms safe.
... In WATSU there is a practioner and a receiver. There instructs from the standpoint of the pracionioner learning to move in the water never losing awareness of the receiver and what they need. This is much more difficult than simply moving a body around in the water, but if u succeed u will be a far better practioner.
... I went to the course because of the curiosity and fell in love to watsu. It's amazing thing for relaxing and reconnecting to your self.
... Make it!
... Terri is the best in the business. Berry tough on body mechanics but is only in it for tu good of all.
... IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE , I NOW UNDERSTAND WATSU IS A HEALLING EXPERIENCE IN BOUTH WAYS , TO THE ONE WHO RECEIVES AND THE ONE WHO IS GIVING. I LEARN FROM THERY THE RESPONSABILITY TO ALSO TAKE CARE OF MY OWN BODY, THE BEST POSITIONS NOT ONLY FOR PATIENS BODY BUT MINE TO, EVEN LITLE DETAILS ARE VERY IMPORTANT, SHE TAKES THIS PERSONALLY AND I REALLY APRECIATE , MAKES YOU CONCIOUS IN EVERY MOMENT ABOUT YOUR FACE, YOUR HANDS , YOUR LEGS , AND PATIENS FACE , LEGS , EARS , ETC..... AND NOW !!! YOU CAN DANCE WITH A BEAUTIFUL RITHM, AND FLOW GRACEFULLY IN THE HEALLING WATER .
... Officially, there is no prerequisite for this course, but you do need to prepare yourself for a physical effort. I strongly recommend to take some Pilates or Yoga lessons or any other physical fitness system that will allow you to strengthen your body and get to know it better.
Also, bear in mind that you will be expected to learn a lot in short time, for example, understand the connection between the giver and the receiver, which is a process that takes time. Give yourself that time.
Theri is an extremely experienced instructor whose vast knowledge and excellent teaching skills are felt throughout the course, and will allow you to make the most out of this course.
... No comment.
... A fantastic introduction into watsu
... Great class - probably like no other you have taken because it combines so many things- dance, massage, therapeutic effects all in one and in the water!
Be ready to work hard and make sure you can put the time in to learn the routines.
... It was the most intense workshop I have ever done. I learned so much about the water and its healing effects, and I have been doing aquatic therapy for 20 years! Be prepared to work very hard both mentally and physically learning all the moves. It was fantastic!
... Ten kurs jest czym¶ co przekroczy³o moje oczekiwania. Nie spodziewa³em siê takiego zaanga¿owania prowadz±cych oraz ¿e jest to tak powa¿ne zajêcie byæ terapeut± Watsu. Zachêcam gor±co!!!
... It was a great experience. Very good instructors. Beautiful place.
... It was wonderful. It was a lot to learn and absorb, but it was very self gratifying.
... Really nice experience, many helpful tips, I recommend!
... This was a complete new experience yet again after taking watsu 1 for the sixth time!! Much more emphasis in depth of material from many ,more angles!! Learning always happens from a inimaginable way of kinestetic sense!!
... Every time I take a watsu 1 again new learning and discoveriies to refine a bit more my technique!!!
... This was such a womderful course and studying with Theri is so valuable for learning correct body mechanics. After learning with Theri, I discovered that what happens under the water in our own bodies, can really allow the client to experience deeper relaxation and benefit more from the water work.
... Thank you ,thank you ,thank you!! No words can express what you can feel ,perceive ,learn and much more to keep you motivated in each class you take with Theri!!!
... Thank you again!!
... Great experience!!
... In my poinion about watsu1,as the beginnig of training of watsu,I do recommend any student to learn first how to use body in the right way in water.Body mechanics are really important because our muscle remains for good or bad.
thank you for your kindness and encouragement during the class.
I really enjoyed learning from you,especially how to use my body in water.
Your specific information and skills of watsu1 are great key for me to continue of learning watsu.
... appreciation for the modality. no less
... Theri is an amazingly thorough teacher who is incredible at teaching students the correct posture and movements from the very beginning of their training, utilizing step by step methods to help a student understand the body positioning, movements and their outcome. I thoroughly suggest Theri for anyone beginning the Watsu lifestyle, and I thoroughly recommend Theri for everyone in that she is patient and will remain with you as you repeat the steps over and over again until you get it.
