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.

12/30/2014 ... Having Cameron AND Davida as co-instructors was SO excellent! They were both incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and skilled as teachers.

To any students wanting to take Watsu 1, I would just warn them that there is an INCREDIBLE amount of information to take in. I would strongly encourage them to practice every evening with each other, to help integrate all the information, get the "muscle memory" of the moves, and ground their presence while they practice.
12/29/2014 ... This course is an eye opening, heart opening, surreal experience where you will immerse yourself into blissful relaxation in a inspirational learning environment. A prior love and commitment to working in water is a must or else you may feel slightly waterlogged. Definitely an interesting alternative path to consider if you are looking for a unique modality where you can connect on a deep level with your client.
