Hawaii Massage School: Watsu I

Alexis Lee

June 12, 2016 - June 17, 2016

Learn how the getting lighter of the one in your arms each time they breathe in, engages your own breathing from a deep level, establishing 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.

About the Facilitator(s)

Alexis Lee has been an Aquatic Bodyworker since 1996, after training with Harold Dull; creator of Watsu, and Alexander George of Healing Dance, as well Alexis has been a certified teacher through the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association since 1999, and co-taught with Harold while living at Harbin Hot Springs for four years.

With over 2200 hours of training and over 6000 hours of teaching, she brings a balanced approach to the class, with an emphasis on awareness, body mechanics and personal insight, as Watsu is much more than a technique. Alexis also brings NVC communication to the class, having studied 6 years with Marshall Rosenberg and Selwa Said’s unique style. A former Montessori teacher, she brings a new paradigm of teaching with ease, grace, fun, and balance.

“My passion stems from the heart-centered connection I feel floating the person in my arms. I believe a Watsu class can be taught as a Watsu session, more like zenflow.”

$810 Tuition includes lunch Monday through Friday, $510 for Auditors to repeat course, and $300 for just Basic Watsu the 12th and 13th - which includes Monday lunch.

You can contact Alexis Lee at [email protected] for questions concerning content of the class.

Inika Spence

July 3, 2016 - July 8, 2016

Hawaii Massage School: Healing Dance I

Inika Spence

June 19, 2016 - June 24, 2016

Healing Dance® I constitutes a paradigm shift for the student of other forms of aquatic bodywork. It sees the body as at home in the water and hydrodynamic in its form, healing in the flow of movement. It understands the psyche as needing nurture and closeness, and also space, freedom and acceptance of self-expression. More than anything else, Healing Dance I is the wave.
