Bodywork Training

Watsu 1

Alexis Lee

July 18, 2013 - July 23, 2013

Learn Watsu in HawaiiFollows the moves of Basic Watsu, learning long, gracefully flowing transitions into and out of Watsu's major positions. Explore the Art of ”Being” without doing, while entering a deep state of presence.

Learn how to support and move each person as effortlessly as possible in the water, while keeping good body mechanics and strong ethics. Learn to support someone on your legs and access their whole body.

About the Facilitator(s)

Alexis LeeMy 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.
