About Healing Dance® I Course
Healing Dance® has many aspects, all based on the healing power of movement, warm water and touch.
Healing Dance® I constitutes a paradigm shift for the student of aquatic bodywork. It sees the body as at home in the water, hydrodynamic in its form and healing in the flow of movement. It understands the psyche as needing not only nurture and closeness, but space, freedom and acceptance of self-expression, as well. More than anything else, Healing Dance I is the wave.
In addition to seven full-body waves the sequence encompasses various circles, figure eights and releases, all balanced by the stillness of positional sanctuaries and woven together with flowing transitions.
The study of body mechanics extends beyond the familiar Horse and Warrior Stances to include different walking patterns that allow traveling across the pool. Healing Dance principles are discussed on land and practiced in the water. These include moving by example, creative imbalance, flow, the rhythmic field, invisible transitions and dosing movement.
Finally, you are introduced to Relating and Mirroring, the goal of all technical study, the art of sensitively accompanying the movement impulses and unwinding of receivers.
This course is internationally recognised.
