Taught by Sophie Costes. Assistant: Cristina Arcos Trancho
31 May – 4 June 2023 in Masia Magadins Nou – Moià (Barcelona), Spain
Aquatic bodywork training “Waterness Journey™” and somatic investigation including free movement, Contact Improvisation, Yoga and breathing exercises.
WHAT IS WATERNESS JOURNEY™?
Waterness Journey ™ is a modality, with specificity on the techniques of underwater work and three-dimensional massage, offering the possibility for the recipient to enter into an interactive movement.
As beginners or future professionals in water treatments, Waterness™ brings you valuable tools thanks to its detailed technique that we practice extensively, and the integrative processes to respond in real time to a pro active receiver.
Inside our bubble of nature, in the Masia, before breakfast, we practise together soft yoga postures and we use mental concentration exercises (meditation, pranayama, Mudras and visualisation) in order to keep a more refined presence throughout the day.
Stretching the body, breathing while being aware of the impact of the energetic stimulation, not only gives us new experiences on a bodily level, but also supports a nervous system and neuronal balance which is essential for the assimilation of the aquatic learning days.
The somatic work (contact dance, proposal of free and directed movement) completes this legibility between the qualities of the water element and the properties of the earth, with a playful approach that favours the integration of the content of the training.
