Hawaii Massage School: Basic Watsu

Alexis Lee

January 29, 2016 - January 30, 2016

Learn Watsu in HawaiiBasic Watsu moves open all Watsu sessions and are the first third of what is taught in Watsu 1. In this 16 hour course you will learn a progression of moves that you can share with anyone.

About the Facilitator(s)

Alexis LeeAlexis Lee
My love of Watsu® stems from the heart-centered connection I feel with the person floating in my arms. I believe Watsu® is a way of bringing awareness, groundedness and peace into our daily lives. Much more than a "technique" of aquatic bodywork; the surrender and trust, as well as physical flexibility experienced in a session is profound. I incorporate NVC and the unique style of Selwa Said Communication into the class as good and ethics are essential to the healing process.

My passion for Watsu has taken me from being a Montessori teacher, and 22 years of being a performance artist using mime, comedy and movement, into the healing arts. This has aided in my flowing style in sessions as well as creating a supportive, graceful, nonjudgmental learning environment in the classroom, adapted to individual learning styles.

Trained with the originators of Watsu & Healing Dance, with over 8,000 hours of Massage study and teaching, co-taught with Harold Dull; creator of Watsu, I bring my knowledge of land massage into my water-healing; ZenShiatsu, Energy Active Craniosacral, Yogasage, Lomilomi, to name a few.

The space of total presence and awareness that the giver provides in WaterTherapy, is the same space we can use to bring peace in our world, locally and globally. I’d love to share this space with everyone.

Water Dance Class - HawaiiHealing Dance is a synthesis of Watsu, Trager Work, Waterdance, and pure movement.  It combines the freedom, scope and 3 dimensions of Waterdance with the safety and nurture of Watsu. The approach is based on the healing power of movement and how the body naturally moves in water. The movements are hydrodynamic and spacious, featuring many different undulating wave movements that integrate the body and release blocked energies.
