French born Sophie Costes, ayurvedic therapist, yoguini & dancer:
She became a practitioner of Watsu © and WaterDance © in 2008, in India where she lived and worked various years. Sophie leads projects on dance festivals since 2011 in Asia and Europe.
Bringing all into her personal approach, Sophie founded Waterness Journey ™, an interactive water modality which uses movement, body mechanics & breath awareness to open the field of interactivity, bringing a rich communication with partners in play.
Supported and held by the provider, the body of the receiver encounters a space of spontaneous movement, self-regulation to find new balance.
The practice of meditation and dance contributes greatly to her therapeutic approach in water . Two major aspects in her trainings are intuition and improvisation, together with specific techniques, to allow deep release for the body.
