building up to bigger movements and finally involving the whole body coordination.
The big range of benefits Ai Chi provides include mind & body relaxation, increased
balance, pain management, improved range of motion & general mobility, strengthening
of core muscles, increased metabolism and blood circulation, mental alertness etc. It also
contributes to reduction of stress, insomnia, depression, fatigue, anxiety and encourages

both aquatic bodywork modalities given in a warm water pool. Watsu®, the part where
the client's face stays always on the surface, introduces the body mechanics required to
work with someone immersed in water. During the Liquid Flow part, the receiver is also
brought under water (with nose clip), which offers a unique experience. In this course,
you will practice basic techniques and qualities (grounding, presence, stillness,
movement, attention) of being and moving another body in the water. You will

Course Time: 50 hours (7 days)
Pre-requisite: Watsu® 1 or equivalent course
Watsu®, the abbreviation of WATer ShiatSU, originates from Masunaga’s Zen Shiatsu,
which was transferred and adapted to warm water by the Californian Shiatsu practitioner
Harold Dull. Therefore a deeper knowledge of Shiatsu is highly recommended. Shiatsu is
a form of natural healing that originated within the oldest healing system known to
humanity. It is a method of restoring and maintaining health by adjusting and balancing
the body's primary communication system - the energy system. This energy system
directs our growth, body functions, and activities as well as our awareness from
conception till death.
Although about 50% of this course is on land, it will add valuable knowledge to your
Watsu® practice. To become a registered Watsu® practitioner, one needs to have at least
50 hours of Shiatsu or Tantsu, another method of land-based bodywork.

adjusted with the pleasure of the practice in warm water.
