Book a private session of Aqua Bodywork to restore fluidity in your body.
Each session combines the therapeutic effects of Aqua Yoga and the relaxing benefits of Watsu-inspired Aqua floatation:
Part 1: AQUA YOGA FOR MOBILITY
Aqua Yoga is low-impact, accesible form of yoga that many bodies can enjoy, especially if you have joint pain, prior injuries or mobility issues. In the water, joints are supported allowing free movement while also acting as resistance to help strengthen muscles. Yoga in the water challenges balance and illuminates the quality of breath.
– Reduce tension & alleviate pain
– Help to build strength, improve flexibility & stability in your back & spine
– Establish mindfulness, connecting with your thoughts, feelings, sensation
Part 2: WATSU-STYLE FLOATION FOR DEEP RELAXATION
Developed in 1980 by Harold Dull, Watsu is the world’s first form of Aquatic Bodywork and the principle form of Aquatic therapy for mind and body relaxation. It is based on the premise that movement which works on stretching within water enables connection at a myofascial level (connective tissue). This increases ease of movement (mobility of joints, fascia) and provides a supported, calm environment conducive for deep relaxation. Within a deep relaxed state, the sympathetic is quietened while the parasympathetic nervous system is enhanced, reducing stress, chronic pain, trauma.
AT YOUR HOME, AT YOUR CONVENIENCE
Wenlin can facilitate a session any day at a time convenient for you, at pool near your home / workplace. It is recommended to have the class later in the day (after 2pm) so the pool water is warm. This makes the pool more conducive for deep relaxation.
