Aquatic Explorations Retreat

 Aquatic Bodywork and Aquadance

@ Spa Sur les Toits du Monde,
St. Catherine de Hatley, Quebec
November 22-24th, 2024

This is an invitation for a journey together in a weekend retreat to experience blissful care in the water, exploring aquatic bodywork, aquadance and expanding your lung capacity with breath.  We will be giving and recieving from each other in a warm pool, practicing holds both above and below the water.   There are lots of games and fluidic wave patterns we will be cultivating in our bodies. 

 

 No experience in any therapeutic modality is necessary.

Just a willingness to dive inwards.

In the water there is no hiding, just transparency of self.

Emotions can surface and be felt so easily in the water. 

This work is tender, vunerable and will open your heart like never before.  

 

It will be held in a womb-like setting at the indoor pool at Spa Sur les Toits du Monde. We will be heating it extra warm for this work (Watsu-type heat), so you can fully relax. There is also a sauna and hot tub at the spa on your free time to enjoy! The retreat will include accomodation and meals.

 

All will be taken care of so you can leave your cares behind and give this gift to yourself and to the planet, honoring all the waters of the earth, which nourishes you every day of your life.

Experience aquahara, dolphin dance, aquatic osteopathy and craniosacral principles which incorporate the processes of embryology
