In 1993 I fell in love with Aquatic Bodywork.Until then,I had always loved dancing and all things to do with movement.
My first float in warm water was in 1974, in a tropical sea, it relaxed me more deeply than I’d ever experienced before. I felt like I had dissolved into the ocean, returning to an innocence of being.
Years later I had my first WaterDance session.
Again, I experienced this deep relaxation and dissolving but now I was surrendering to the fun wave movements that someone put my body through. At times I was held like a baby in the womb.
I was addicted and wanted more.
Since then I have accumulated over 2000 hours in training.
I have worked with some of the best professionals in this field in USA,
The Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Australia.
I love the work in water!
