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.

Harold Dull

Harold Dull is the the creator of Watsu®, Tantsu® and the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Registry which stores the transcripts of students around the world. Harold trained with the creator of Zen Shiatsu in Japan, Shizuto Masunaga, and the teachers who brought Zen Shiatsu to America, Reuho Yamada and Wataru Ohashi. The profundity and effectiveness of the bodywork forms he has created reflect his passionate practice and deep understanding of energy and the body; the creativity of these forms reflects his background as a poet in the San Francisco Renaissance. His three Watsu books, a new Tantsu book and a collection of his poetry as well as several of his DVDs are available. Harold speaks several languages,which helps him teach his work all over the world. He has been awarded by Water Fitness and Aquatic Therapy associations. Once he completed developing the forms needed in clinics and spas around the world, Harold turned his attention to developing complementary paths that can make Watsu and Tantsu's potential for connection and the creative engagement of our life force universally available, a new humanism in which everybody can float or hold each other without intention.
