Watsu is a form of bodywork which is performed while floating in body-temperature water. The receipient of a Watsu treatment is supported by floats as well as the therapist, while the therapist gently stretches the body. The nature of performing bodywork in the water allows for the body to be stretched and manipulated in unique ways, that may not be possible on land.
Kalani has one of the largest Watsu pools in the United States, an excellent facility to learn this beautiful and transformative art.
Watsu II: This class expands on the Transition Flow taught in Watsu I. You learn additional moves and bodywork in each position and how to incorporate them and other moves, as needed.
You learn about the meridians and points in Watsu and explore following the client's tendency to move, and how to creatively explore your own movements. Practicing the pointwork, the lifts, the pushes and pulls introduced at this stage, helps develop the ability to explore and play with energy. Because you now have so much to work and play
with, it is recommended you practice many sessions before going on to Watsu
3 or another form. Prerequisites: Watsu I.
About the Facilitator(s)
Alexis Lee has been an Aquatic Bodyworker since 1996, working in Watsu, Healing Dance, Waterdance and Jahara. Alexis has taught Watsu since 2000 under the tutelage of Harold Dull, the founder of Watsu®.
Her passion for Watsu stems from the heart-centered connection she feels with each person who floats in her arms. Alexis encourages Watsu practitioners to come from a place of 'being', rather than 'doing', without agenda, thereby allowing each client's body to 'tell' them what it needs.
As a therapist, Alexis' experience in Shiatsu, Cranial Sacral, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Lomilomi and Yogassage therapies enhance her water work.
