Watsu® I is an opportunity for anyone, practitioner or novice, to learn new skills, fine tune existing ones, or be introduced to the world of aquatic bodywork.

Spend 6 days of personal learning and professional development in a beautiful beachside villa in Two Rocks, 65km North of Perth, complete with an indoors heated pool where we will train.

Our students are welcome to stay in this 3-story luxurious villa just 2 minutes walk to the beach.

The villa features, among many other amenities, a huge and well equipped kitchen, utility room with washing machine and iron, a balcony with sitting areas and BBQ, living room, dining area, and much more.

The villa allows students space and privacy to enjoy different areas by themselves throughout the week or choose to socialise in communal living spaces.

Shops and amenities are a gentle walk away.

What is Watsu®?

Watsu® is a gentle form of therapeutic aquatic bodywork conducted in warm water. It works on many levels, from the purely physical to the emotional and spiritual.

Watsu® has been shown to relieve pain, release tension and reduce stress. It increases the body’s range of motion, improves circulation and radiates warmth, promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing.

At present, many professional therapists around the world are incorporating a full range of Watsu applications and principles with their practice. Sharing ideas, knowledge and skills enriches benefits for wellbeing.
