Who Should Join?
Those who are touched deeply by the experience of floating, sometimes only by seeing it, know they want to share this gift with others. Natural caregivers, bodyworkers, dancers, yogis, artists and water lovers are often drawn to aquatic bodywork.
No prior learning is required. The courses are open to everyone regardless of previous background. As a foundation for aquatic bodywork, "Aquatic Basics" parellels "Watsu 1", and is often taken by Watsu students to refine and build on their technique.With your background in Aquatic Basics you may want to continue to Module 2, Healing Dance Essentials. Together, these 2 modules form the basis for the 100 hour Healing Dance Spa Provider certification.

In Aquatic Basics you will begin by learning the essential skills to support and glide a receiver safely and artfully in the water. Throughout the week you will explore ample techniques to deliver a heavenly 45 minute session. In Aquatic Basics, you will also learn to free-float your receiver with the help of a flotation pillow, allowing you and your receiver more space and the possibilty for improvised bodywork.
What can I expect during the course?
Expect full and focused but spacious days with plenty of time floating and being floated. Most sessions begin on land with discussion and learning fundamentals. We sometimes share experiences in the circle and sometimes free dance to lighten up. The atmosphere is sincere but not too serious. ;) Basically we learn a lot, have fun, and are nourished both by giving and receiving. It is not unusual for these courses to stir emotions and catalise a healing process. With the support of the water and eachother, expect a joyful transformation to unfold.

About the Instructor
Michael received his first Watsu Aquatic Bodywork session in 1995 and experienced a depth of relaxation, peace, and connection he had never known before. It was love-at-first-float and an experience that propelled him into a life of healing work. Since then he has trained for literally thousands of hours in aquatic bodywork, yoga, and numerous healing modalities. In 2009 he studied with the pioneer of Healing Dance Aquatic Bodywork to become an instructor and has gone on to become one of the leading therapists and teachers of aquatic bodywork in Asia Pacific. His work was recently featured in National Geographic Traveller magazine. Michael is honoured to share this profound work, considering it as a gift for receiver and giver.
